Leading supplier of high-performance CNC routing, cutting and engraving machines, AXYZ International has developed a specially engineered all-in-one solution for the cabinet-making and fine furnishing production sector. Called Optimus, it will make its UK début at the forthcoming W16 woodworking and joinery exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham on stand Q0805.
Available in three machine sizes – the 4000, 5000 and 6000 series – to accommodate different production requirements, the router offers multiple customised machine configurations, a range of special machine tool options and dedicated software, all of which have been developed specifically for the cabinet-making and fine furnishing production sector.
Key design features of Optimus include a heavy-duty steel base for enhanced stability, high-speed machining and a superior quality of cut, a twin-head routing/drilling carriage and an integrated dust extraction system to provide a safer and cleaner workplace.
These are supplemented by powerful servomotor drives coupled with the latest helical rack and pinion drive system and a vacuum deck with an innovative auto zone management function for more efficient and secure material hold-down during the routing/drilling process.
Specially designed machine options include a range of high-power spindles and multi-spindle drill heads for enhanced cut quality and machine performance, a 10-station automatic tool change (ATC) facility for work requiring multiple tool functions and a fully automatic sheet-handling system for optimum speed of production.
A hose management and dust extraction system that ensures a clean, hazard-free workplace completes the range of machine options available.
Optimus is supported by the dedicated Solid Essentials software developed by US- and UK-based Cabinet Vision for intuitive design, nesting and programming. The software is also compatible with all standard industry software, offering users unparalleled familiarity for integrating with existing software as an alternative option.
As with all routing/cutting solutions provided by AXYZ International under the AXYZ, Pacer and Z power brands, Optimus benefits from the same build quality, flexibility and high performance and is supported by full on-site training and ongoing technical support.
AXYZ international vice-president – market development, Robert Marshall comments: “Optimus is more than just a machine. It is a complete solution that offers a wide choice of different machine configurations, specially developed machine tools, production accessories and dedicated software.
There is the further advantage that customers will be buying directly from an established manufacturer and not via a third-party supplier and all that this entails in terms of reliability and ongoing technical support.”
