Product Builder

The Product Builder is a powerful design solution for the production of parametric constructions with extruded profiles like fire doors, sun protection, balustrades, conservatories. It is a solution for manufacturers that do not use calculation or drawing software, allowing constructions with profiles to be made as parametric models based on scripts. The models allow the manufacturer to generate machine data, barcode labels, DXF drawings, numerous reports and, if necessary, give feedback to the manufacturers ERP system. From Product Builder the production lists are sent straight to the machine work floor enabling focus on the following tasks.

Using extremely powerful scripting models and algorithms, this software provides endless possibilities when it comes to executing design ideas and turning them into drawings and production lists.

Industries that produce large numbers of similar but customized products can benefit from using our Product Builder, though the ease of implementation and execution is a great tool for manufacturers of any size.

SATELLITE XTE

5-axis CNC mobile gantry machining center, designed to run milling, drilling, threading and cutting processes on large bars in aluminum, PVC, light alloys and steel. The mobile part of the machine mainly consists of a gantry equipped with precision motorization rack. The high-power electrospindle (15 kW in S1) with HSK-63F tool connection allows even heavy-duty machining to be run with excellent speed and accurate results.

The new local safety cab was designed to combine top functionality, accessibility, soundproofing and light with safety and ergonomic requirements.

The operator has broad glazed surfaces to check machining execution and, thanks to the total opening system of the cab in two separate parts, easy access during cleaning and maintenance. The cab interior includes the complete segregation of the work area from the remaining sections of the tool magazine and other accessories supplied on the trolley, ensuring maximum chip collection towards the conveyor belt and, as optional, dedicated extraction of machining fumes.

The 24-place tool magazine is housed in the mobile gantry; it is equipped with an exchanger arm system that considerably reduces tool change times. A 500 mm blade tool is housed separately in a dedicated magazine system.
