Drill Spindles

The Ficep drill spindle design features a ball screw feed that is consistent with today’s machining center designs.
This design permits the tool to advance through the material at a uniform feed rate that is coordinated and maintained by the CNC control.
Eliminates the tendency for the drill bit to rapidly accelerate and actually punch through the material upon break through.
This is the same system that is used in all CNC machining centers today to achieve maximum metal removal and to be able to fully utilize today’s high performance insert tooling to its maximum efficiency.
The spindle speed range of the Ficep drilling spindle is also designed to accommodate the RPM (up to 3,000 RPM) requirement of today’s high performance insert tools.
The entire drill head and spindle are advanced to the material as a single unit rather than just extending the spindle while the gearbox remains stationary to eliminate spindle wobble.
Internal and external coolant selected by program command.
Full spindle speed range available for all tool positions.


Drill Tool Changer

Six different tool positions available for each spindle.
Automatic tool length calibration accomplished with an integrated laser measuring system.

Punch Tool Changer

The Tipo B system features up to fourteen different punch tools.
Maximum holes size of up to 4″.
Punching is always located directly in the middle of the hydraulic punching ram to eliminate any side loading.

CNC Control

Low maintenance cost due to the utilization of a standard PC platform
The Ficep software eliminates the requirement for additional hardware such as third party axis control boards, PLC hardware and encoder switching boards
The Ficep Windows based control is provided with the proprietary Ficep software for remote diagnostics through a phone or internet connection.

Part Marking

38 position fully programmable turret marking system
Fully programmable scribing system for part marking and the generation of scribing lines.
