The efficient production of flat shaped workpieces has gained
tremendously in importance. Conventional processing methods using a
number of individual machines are unable to keep pace with increasingly
stringent demands on flexibility, quality and cost reduction.
With the router BOF 20 Homag offers a solution designed to grow with
future demands which allows all the production stages of shaped
component processing to be performed on a single machine. This offers a
whole new dimension in CNC-controlled stationary processing which makes
economical sense right from batch size. In short , a series which is
Modular design: resetting and upgrading at any time
Your router BOF 20 is designed to permit simple upgrading – whether for
worktops, doors, windows or other special processing requirements. The
modular interface at the working spindle which accommodates the
changeable units can be used to transform the router into a complete
processing centre with suitable preparation even including edge
processing. This allows you to adapt your machine at any time at
reasonable cost to your operating requirements.
In step with the state of the art
One of the fundamental advantages of the machine concept is that the
Homag router is able to grow to accommodate new developments in
processing unit technology. You will be supplied with a series of
updates for the BOF 20 allowing you and your processing centre to keep
abreast of technological developments.
A heavy-duty, torsion-resistant machine bed with a rigid,
vibration-damping Y beam and a low-mass Z axis form the optimum base
construction. Precise, low-wear pretensioned and backlash-free rack and
pinion drive systems in conjunction with the high-resolution digital
drive system form the basis for a consistent high standard of processing
quality – for instance for complete circular processing, 90 degree
corners or high hogging output.
High precision coupled with high traversing speeds and cutting
- Traversing speed of up to 80 m/min.
- Processing speed up to 30 m/min.
- Tool change in 2 – 3 secs
- Changeover of complete processing units in 5 – 7 secs
- Highly dynamic due to digital drive technology
- Dynamic contouring error compensation
As variable as your practical requirements:
Sizing and profiling, drilling, grooving, all types of dividing work:
The Homag router offers just the type of varied application
possibilities you need in your everyday production work. And with every
conceivable type of material: Chipboard, MDF, coreboard, solid wood,
Individual, alternating or multiple processing
The router is designed to cope with a whole range of feed modes. The
choice is yours: Individual feed is used if only a single workpiece is
processed at one time, while alternating feed with one workpiece always
in standby substantially enhances productivity. Depending on the
configuration, multiple workpieces can also be mounted for maximum
Two working spindles: Double output, reduced downtimes
A carefully designed modular system opens up new processing
possibilities. Two working spindles with separate Y axis and tool
changing system for chip-to-chip times of less than 2 seconds. This
configuration also permits two workpieces to be processed simultaneously
in parallel operation.
Processing centres with permanently mounted processing unit not only
restrict the user to a specific, unchangeable configuration – the
heavy-duty unit supports also substantially slow down the machine. The
solution from Homag:
Automatic: Out of the magazine, into the spindle
The Homag router simply picks all the tools and units it requires out of
a exchange magazine and slots into the working spindle.
Performance on demand: The tool changer
The 12-slot plate changer is a low-cost solution for the provision of up
to 12 tools and units. The higher-speed chain changer with 30 or 70
slots is equipped with a double gripper which holds the next tool or
unit in standby during running operation.
Sophisticated technology, top results
The working spindle has to fulfil a whole range of functions, and is
accordingly fitted with the best modern technology can offer:
- Water cooling for optimum machine function
- Hybrid bearings (ceramic) for less friction, double the service life,
- Four-dimensional interface for all conceivable unit functions and
simple future upgrading
- Tool interface HSK F63 for maximum static and dynamic rigidity, high
exchange and repeat accuracy
It is only the sum of all these individual facets which permits such a
wide range of machine processes in such a high standard or quality.
