Our hapfo CHALLENGE machines are fully automatic CNC wood turning machines for the production of large series with the highest demands on accuracy and highly complex parts. They offer all the technical advantages that characterize a high-performance fully automatic CNC wood lathe. The hapfo CHALLENGE can turn, mill, flute, drill and grind and is ideally suited for large series and parts ready for painting.
We offer the machine in two versions and with a wide range of optional additional functions.
The two basic machines have the following parameters:
Distance between centers: 1,600 mm
Copy length: 1,300 mm
Copy diameter: up to 300 mm
Distance between centers: 1,750 mm
Copy length: 1,450 mm
Copy diameter: up to 400 mm
Special features of the hapfo CHALLENGE:
Headstock and machine bed made of high quality gray cast iron
Backlash-free mounting of the hollow spindle (suitable for vacuum connection) with thread M 45 and inner cone MK 4.
Storage of the support on linear guides with servo motor drive
Heavy gray cast iron tailstock with quick release eccentric and MT3 cone
thin parts possible thanks to the leading steady rest, when using the ring steady rest with pre-cutting steel, planing of the raw material is not necessary
Optional turning tool swivel device for continuous cutting even with balls and grooves
Optional belt sanding unit with PC control for pointed and flat sanding on round profiles. Turning and grinding in one operation
Simple and practice-oriented operation with special turning functions
Less training required thanks to the use of simple 2D CAD software
Production of several parts in "bar mode" possible
Fluting can be produced in any number of pitches and gradients with the milling unit, which can be swiveled and height-adjusted in several directions.
7.5 kW three-phase motor with frequency converter regulated and controllable via the program.
Spindle speed range from 0 to 3200 rpm.
The newly developed magazine combines the experiences from previous generations with some interesting and extremely useful innovations. It is self-centering and can clamp both rectangular and round raw material. By using the rollers in the gripper, the system can also be used as a program-controlled support steady rest, which enables a considerable reduction in production times, especially with slim parts. Thanks to the internal gripper, warped raw material can also be used more efficiently. It can be operated completely from the front. The finished parts are ejected to the front. The minimum dimension of the cross-sections is 20 mm. Automatic operation is possible up to 100 mm. The grippers can also be used as an insertion aid up to a cross-section of 130 mm. The workpiece length can be continuously adjusted between 140 mm and 1300 mm.
Software and programming:
Standard software MegaCAD LT for creating the contour
Data import and export in all common formats
All additional parameters are entered and saved in the machine software.
All menus are graphically supported and marked with symbols. All important information such as speed, feed, positions of the axes or the current program progress is displayed at any time. The magazine can also be easily operated manually.
Handwheel for operating mode manual / automatic:
A handwheel with display to show the selected operating mode is optionally available. With this, all axes can be positioned quickly and precisely in manual mode. In automatic mode, START / PAUSE / STOP as well as speed and feed can be continuously controlled at any time.
