FANUC RETROFIT OF WEBSTER & BENNETT CNC VERTICAL BORER

The project comprised a full Fanuc Retrofit of a Webster & Bennett S type Vertical Borer.

Mechanically, the machine was in quite good condition, therefore, the majority of the remedial mechanical work related to the refurbishment of Ballscrews, Gearboxes and Hydraulics.

Electrically, the machine has been retrofitted with a new Fanuc 0i-TD Control, a new Siemens DC Table Drive, new Fanuc Digital Axis Servo Motors & Drives (X and Z), a new Electrical Cabinet, complete with all new control gear, and a complete machine re-wire.

In addition to the above, EES has also designed, manufactured and fitted a complete new 12 Station Automatic Toolchanger to the machine

MACHINE SPECIFICATION

  • Webster & Bennett S type Vertical Borer
  • Table Dia. = 1,600mm
  • 12 Station Automatic Toolchanger
  • 75hp DC Table Drive
  • Elevating Rail

COMMENTS

The machine is key to our Clients production of Aero Engine Components; not only has the CNC Retrofit vastly improved machine availability, but the addition of the new Automatic Toolchanger has significantly reduced machining cycle times.
