Set up the follow-up order with "zero" set-up time for individual parts or small to medium series? With a 5-axis machining centre from the ACURA series, the MARATHON PL406 as a device storage unit, and the Standby Magazin as a large tool storage unit, this becomes a reality. As with the MARATHON SR422, the seamless operating concept of the ACURA MARATHON with Heidenhain TNC, which is featured on the machine and on the tool terminal of the Standby Magazin, is also impressive. The pallet magazine has buttons for rotating the pallet carrier and for acknowledging blanks for easy operation. The job list is created on the Heidenhain controls in the Batch Process Manager.

  • 6 pallets storage spaces
  • 370 kg transfer weight max.
  • Collision area diameter max. 600 mm
  • Two rotatable pallet shelves as standard equipment (others optional)
  • Pallet can be manually locked on the set-up station to ensure better clamping
  • Perfectly coordinated with ACURA MARATHON range

One of a kind

One of a kind

The MARATHON P406 has rotatable pallet spaces for using complex fixtures or clamping towers, making it one of a kind.
Large clamping weight

Large clamping weight

The 400 x 400 x 38 mm pallets are made of hard anodised aluminium and can accommodate up to 250 kg clamping weight. Hard anodised pallets 500 x 400 x 48 mm and a clamping weight of 340 kg are also optionally available.
Efficient clamping

Efficient clamping

The pallet is locked manually to the set-up station, thus ensuring efficient clamping.
Rotating pallet spaces

Rotating pallet spaces

360° rotatable pallet spaces with 90° detent make clamping workpieces easier, including on clamping towers.
Enormous clamping height

Enormous clamping height

The maximum clamping height is a remarkable 500 mm!
