The SBZ 118, a 3-axis profile machining centre with optional 5-sided machining that’s easy to use and has a minimal footprint, expands the elumatec range of entry-level products for automated CNC machining of aluminium, PVC and thin-walled steel profiles. With its machining length of three metres, this versatile and powerful model is the most compact CNC machine in the current elumatec range.
The SBZ 118 offers full functionality for milling, drilling and notching in a small space. It was developed for machining up to five sides with an optional angle head and end milling machine, depending on the individual configuration. The proven inclined bed technology and the on-board 5-fold tool changer make it easy to use.
The SBZ 118 is made particularly attractive by individually configurable optional equipment, including up to two on-board angle head changers, expansion to up to six clamps, an additional length stop with overlength machining and a barcode scanner. A side service door facilitates set-up and maintenance, and the new front visor enables ergonomic and above all safe operation – even for tall people. Plus, the SBZ 118 is eluCloud ready to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0.
Short changeover times thanks to the on-board tool magazine for five tools for machining from above. Two optional magazines for two rotating angle heads (with two tools) allow the machine to be expanded for 5-sided machining.
The machining unit (X-Y-Z axis) moves on a cleverly designed inclined machine bed, offering excellent ergonomics. Cleaning is much easier thanks to the 45-degree inclination, which makes the chips fall downwards, and the operator can stand close to the machine table when inserting the profile to make their work easier. The machine also combines a large working area with optimum machining stability in a compact space.
Optimum machining results on profiles up to 3,000 millimetres long thanks to the material stop on the left and four compact clamps made from vibration-damping cast steel in a slim yet highly rigid design. Individual clamping pieces and support blocks are easy to add and use, while linear guides allow precise automatic adjustment of the clamping system. The SBZ 118/20 can be equipped with two additional clamps and a material stop on the right. Material feed-throughs in the protective cabin and a variable length stop also allow profiles longer than 3 m to be machined.
The SBZ 118/20 is the quick way to get started with CNC machining: it runs on Windows, is controlled via the proven SBZ 1xx series ECI user interface and uses the latest hardware and controller technology. A wide range of metal construction programs can be controlled via eluCad and the full functionality of a CAD-CAM module from the industrial sector is available. Like the larger CNC centres from elumatec, the compact SBZ 118/20 is also eluCloud ready to meet the requirements of Industry 4.0: machine and process data can be recorded and optionally evaluated, allowing you to analyse and optimise operation and to send a real-time finished parts message to the production control computer or the ERP.
Fast machining changeovers and flexible 5-sided machining: the machining unit has a 5.0 kW routing spindle and optional HSK-F63 rotating angle head for two tools, an automatic tool changer and optional angle heads.
