Forte 7-2600

Flexible in one-off production and in pendulum operation

  • Large X travel of 2600 mm
  • Extra large Z travel of 800 mm
  • Completely enclosed work area
  • Heavy-duty, fixed machine table
  • Vertical stainless steel cover for optimised chip fall
  • Moving column of high-quality machine casting
  • Moving tool magazine with 50 spaces for short chip-to-chip times
  • Shuttle machining to reduce downtimes during series production

Parallel production during the setup times

The Forte 7-2600 opens up new areas of application when machining single parts and series. By inserting a workspace divider plate, the long basic workspace can be divided in two for loading and unloading parallel to machining. This enables productive pendulum machining with 2 x 1000 mm X-travel. The entire clamping area can be used for machining long workpieces or also, with the optional angled milling heads, for face machining.

Powerful spindles for optimal results

The main spindles used in the Forte 7-2600 optionally achieve 22,00 or 29,00 kW at maximum 12000 or 14000 rpm respectively. The most powerful spindle operates with 35,00 kW at a maximum 18000 rpm. Maximum system stiffness and true-running quality are the hallmark of these integral CELOX motor spindles with hybrid bearings. All the machining centres of the Forte 7 series are additionally equipped with a hydro-mechanical tool clamping system and an automatic tool changer.

Options for the Forte 7-2600 with precision-fit manufacturing solutions

With selected additions, the Forte 7 series can be geared accurately towards subsequent production. For example, inclined bed coolant systems and optional internal coolant supply can bring about faster and more efficient production thanks to directly-cooled tools. Using zero point clamping systems, the machining centre can also be designed for minimised setup times. An overview of these and other options can be found here.
