We have recently added a beam drilling line to our tool box!
The Excalibur 12 CNC Single Spindle Drill by FICEP allows us to greatly reduce the amount time we spend drilling structural steel as well increasing the accuracy and consistency of the parts we produce.
This new piece of equipment features an exclusive secondary “X” axis with improved accuracy and productivity as it is not necessary to unclamp, reposition and re-clamp for each “X” axis (length axis) movement. This capability also permits scribing on all four surfaces to eliminate all manual layout which can be automatically imported from our CAD system files. The secondary axis also provides the ability to generate slotted holes, copes and large holes.
The Excalibur is also furnished with a ball screw spindle feed that features a 25 HP direct drive spindle design that generates up to 3,000 RPM to use carbide tools to their maximum capability.
