Model AP is characterized by a structure with 2 columns, designed for large parts, up to 14 meters (45.9 ft) of part diameter.
The structure of the machine is a “formation” having the columns mounted to the table base, housing the main spindle and gearbox. All these elements are assembled together in order to constitute a tough structure ensuring maximum stability and rigidity, to withstand the most severe cutting conditions. On the front side of the cross rail are two horizontal sliding guides support the vertical ram saddle in its horizontal movement (through hydrostatic pockets). The distance between the superior and the inferior guide way is dimensioned to ensure the maximum cutting performance.
All the machine structures are designed with the finite element analysis methodology (FEM) and the mainframes are subjected to thermal stabilization and treatment processes.
With the consolidated experience in a wide range of application fields, and years of cooperation with the more important and experienced manufacturing companies all around the world, Pietro Carnaghi developed, in more than 80 years, the most advanced and reliable accessories.
A brief list of the main accessories:
• Automatic and modular turning toolholders
• Turning toolholders with automatic extensions
• Table with Y-axis and milling head with Y-axis travel
• Second (mirror) carriage
• Grinding accessories
Considering the relevant milling spindle speed (3000 g/1’) and the balance of the masses in the spindle itself, it is possible to have a dedicated accessory for grinding operations.
In order to reach higher rotational speeds grinding electrospindles are available.
• Universal heads
• High speed milling heads
• Table/pallet with hydraulic automatic jaws
• Magnetic tables
• High-pressure toolholders (up to 750 bar)
• Automatic boring heads with controller axis
