Forvet Francesca CNC Mill
Fully automatic milling, drilling and countersinking operations. Two turrets (one top, one bottom) holding 8 tools each with thru-the-spindle coolant. Will handle parts up to 1250mm wide and 25mm thick (no maximum on length).
The Forvet Francesca FC 1250 model is a numerically controlled glass working center capable of performing drilling, countersinking and milling operations on flat glass sheets, including those of irregular shape. Applications include frameless shower doors, solar panels and furniture glass. There is no minimum distance between successive drilling operations. It is completely automatic, requiring no manual intervention. The numerical control optimizes the approach speed of the heads; controls the glass transport feed, drilling speed and water quantity; and adjusts the drill length to compensate for wear.
The machine is capable of automatically drilling and milling a shower door with two holes and two mouse ear notches in less than five minutes. There is no need for manual tool changes due to its unique 16-spindle design eight spindles per turret, with two turrets.
