The SA4000 should be used in conjunction with a Flamefast Varivac extraction system with a canopy or flexible arm configuration, depending on the location of the unit.
The Boxford software is an integrated suite of powerful CAD/CAM tools. The CAD provides a variety of drawing tools, including text fonts, with excellent manipulation routines. Drawings from other CAD applications can also be imported and processed. A full 3D simulation of the manufacturing process, including a cycle time, can be shown enabling work to be proven without the need for trial runs on the machine.
Manual Data Input, utilising Industrial Standard Codes, allows programs to be entered using either line by line or conversational programming. Incorporates hardware capable of continuous 3 axis movement utilising the latest Continuous Path Manufacturing technology. This allows large programs, imported from Major CAD/CAM packages, to be machined efficiently and is an essential machine feature for successful Rapid Prototyping of 3D reliefs.
The axis travel and table dimensions provide a machining envelope with excellent Z axis travel for 3D manufacture and generous X and Y travel for machining sheet material. Touch sensitive control panel incorporating illuminated push buttons allows the machines to be operatedwithout a computer. Active and accurate tool path graphics continuously displayed line by line during program write, test run and manufacture.
