CNC machining centre, Accord 500, puts the customer’s time front and centre by optimising and speeding up production processes, while simultaneously guaranteeing excellent finishing quality.

Each technical feature is designed to save time at the most crucial stages for each industry manufacturer: from machine programming to set-up, from the machining process to maintenance.

SCM reports an increase in productivity by 30% compared to market standards, thanks to the gantry structure with a closed frame that, in continuity with the Accord project, allows for sturdiness and precision to be achieved even at maximum advancement speed and with the most difficult machining jobs.

The routing speed is further increased and now exceeds 15m per minute with the new five-axis KPX machining unit with Hiteco 17 kW electro-spindle, designed to allow the most complex operations to be carried out rapidly and accurately.

Even the production cycle times are dramatically reduced with the exclusive BRC-S unit, which is even more flexible and compact and allows you to complete all the cutting, routing and drilling machinings typical of window components.

Set-up times are also reduced to zero thanks to the MATIC automatic worktable with simultaneous positioning of bars and pods or clamping devices: the ideal solution for machining pre-finished elements that involve workpiece repositioning within the programme.

Another significant new entry is the quick access to more than 100 tools, easily available and ready for use with the new Caddy 35 storage, unique both for its capacity as well as its structure because it is integrated into the machining centre without increasing the machine’s bulk.

Tool management is further optimised and simplified by the new Maestro Power TMS software, integrated with SCM’s Maestro suite. Thanks to this program that maximises the ability of the storage and optimises programming, there is no need for the operator to waste time and energy in looking for the most suitable tool: the software will identify and indicate the tool’s exact position in the storage, thus minimising machining times.

Cleaning the surrounding area is another crucial matter when machining solid wood and, in order to deal with the problem, SCM has devised a new shavings conveyor automatically positioned in accordance with the machining program, that can ensure maximum suction efficiency under any conditions.
