Single Spindle Drill
The Ficep Excalibur 12 which was introduced in 2010 is uniquely different than all other single spindle CNC drill lines previously engineered by Ficep since the first units in the 70’s.
A non-contact laser is incorporated into the vertical clamp to establish the physical location of the web surface.
Our wireless remote control system eliminates up to 30% of the operator’s movements as he does not constantly have to walk up to 60 ft. in each direction just to start the process on the next section.
In addition, the operator always has access to the emergency stop on his wireless remote to assure safe operation.
This system is equipped, as standard, with a six-position automatic tool changer to not only facilitate different holes size requirements but such applications as scribing, countersinking, milling for slotted holes and tapping.
The proprietary Ficep software automatically determines when a tool is dull and changes this automatically to a re-sharpened tool.
Excalibur 12 CNC Single Spindle Drill
This new product line features an exclusive secondary “X” axis with improved accuracy and productivity as it is not necessary to unclamp, reposition and re-clamp for each “X” axis (length axis) movement. This capability also permits scribing on all four surfaces to eliminate all manual layout which can be automatically imported from such CAD systems as SDS2 or Tekla. The secondary axis also provides the ability to generate slotted holes, copes and large holes that exceed the maximum capability of the Excalibur 12.
The versatility of this CNC system can be exhibited when processing the following typical applications:
