SCM opens up a new era in drilling

The open-house event, ‘Drilling is no longer boring’, organised in the Technology Centre of the SCM headquarters of Rimini (18-20 October, Italy) was a resounding success, with hundreds of visitors from all over the world.

The event sought to present a preview of the new Morbidelli NC drilling machinery, showcase the excellent teamwork of the SCM designers, technicians and specialists who had accepted this new high-tech challenge.

SCM provided on the first day training for the sales network – a critical opportunity for building a close-knit, successful SCM team at an international level. On the other two days, the focus was on welcoming hundreds of customers from all over the world, in particular from Asia and South America.

The event was an opportunity to discover first-hand the new generation of the Morbidelli CX220 and CX210 machines, the world-leading compact CN drilling solutions, and the new Morbidelli UX200D, a more complete and flexible CN drilling solution.

These machines are the outcome of an effort to meet the growing needs for customised and integrated production by granting producers the possibility of satisfying any given customer’s special requirements without giving up on the benefits of industrial production.

Every detail in these machines has been designed with meticulous care in order to allow all the required machining operations to be performed with high efficiency, top quality and advanced technology.

The new generation of CN drilling models CX220 and CX210 add some significant innovations to the compact and fast Morbidelli CX series, already an ideal solution for batch-one machining. The new compact drilling heads, with their new design, will help manufacturers achieve hitherto undreamt of high levels of performance and efficiency.

Other significant innovations were the new panel return systems with automatic unloading and the possibility of having new customised spindles for customised machining.

The SCM drilling revolution was in clear evidence in the new generation of Morbidelli UX machines, with their new exclusive functions offered in the entire series, and in the now-to-be-launched Morbidelli UX200D machine with its greater performance machining both small and large panels.

The highly versatile, Morbidelli UX200D can operate as a stand-alone machine or as an integrated part of a production line, with various types of work piece conveyors and loading and unloading systems.

A noteworthy feature in the Morbidelli UX200D is the new exclusive dowelling system with dual variable-axis broaches that can be adjusted according to the distance between holes. Among the features available in the entire series are the automatic tool change magazines for both the upper and lower spindles, used for simultaneous machining of opposite sides of panels, and the new Clamex spindles for customised joints.

SCM has more for the industry to discover in Rimini next year (Jan 31-Feb 02) with the new generation of CNC nesting machining centres.
