Automatic CNC milling machine – FNC



The FNC is an automatic numerical control milling machine for the sole edge; the bigger advantage that this machine gives is the elimination of the template in the working cycle.

This reduction cuts strongly the “time to maker” because, from the modeling in the cad program to the realization of the sole, the times are minimized and the operations are reduced at the minimum: you don’t need to realize template, you don’t need to setup centering parts, you don’t need to set up guide rings.

An additional vantage is to realize the more complex models with thin and long heels, because mechanically the system does not have problems with different working shapes.

The FNC can work with or without an automatic load and collector system. In both cases the sole centering is managed by the numerical control, the machine doesn’t need regulations, all the positioning data born in the cad system.

When the machine works manually it is the operator that loads and unloads the sole; in the case of the automatic cycle the soles are stored in an inline 4 station loader and picked up by an electrical axis equipped with suction cups.

The loader creates the pair, measures the thickness of the pair, to make sure that all the operations are done correctly. The collector splits the sole helping the operator for the collecting operations.

The machine could be equipped with two different spindle types:

  • Fixed Spindle Shaft
  • Quick Toolchange Shaft (Optional)

In the FNC all the milling data, centering data and tool managing data are completely parametric, this is to confirm an innovative system, flexible and modular.
