Nested Based Machining Center
Numerically controlled machining center Rover B 1224 G FT
FT worktable dimension: X=2465mm; Y=1260mm (4’ x 8’)
The Biesse Rover B G-FT represents the latest technological advancement in machining centers. It is engineered to process solid woods, plastics and non ferrous metals such as aluminum and composite materials including Corian™.
Designed to play a critical role in today’s work cells and Just-In-Time manufacturing environments, the Rover B G-FT is unsurpassed in productivity, safety, reliability and operational efficiency in its class. The Rover B G-FT is manufactured by Biesse, a world leader in panel processing equipment which is supported in North America by Biesse America and Biesse Canada, totally owned subsidiaries of Biesse
As guarantee of the quality of its products and services, BIESSE has been certified ISO 9001 since 1995 and works in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 9001:2000 norms. Most of the technological components assembled on the machining centres is produced by companies of the Biesse Group or by world-wide known companies included in the Biesse "Register of Qualified Suppliers", which have strictly cooperated with Biesse through the years.
The running tests of each machining centre include the following stages:
Intermediate control of operating units and pre-assembled components;
Non-stop running test for the simulation of workings, for a minimum period of 10 hours;
Control of X and Y axes precision and positioning repeatability by means of an interferometric laser (VDI/3441 norm);
Gauging of the X and Y axes through a software function: the values detected during the laser tests are elaborated by the N.C. and transmitted to the axes drives in order to improve the positioning precision;
Functional tests for routing and boring operations on panels positioned on all the machine origins.
All the machine structural components have been designed with a CAD product for solid modeling which allows to determine the possible structural distortions caused by static and dynamic loads. The correct dimensions of the most critical components are elaborated by a software for finite elements structural calculation which, by simulating the work conditions, allows to determine the most stressed areas which need strengthening.
This definition of the machine structure grants maximum rigidity, high precision in time and refined finish to BIESSE machining centres, even during heavy-duty phases.
The machine base consists of a single component made up of thick electrowelded steel sheets, suitably strengthened in the most stressed areas.
The upright, mobile in the longitudinal direction (X axis) consists of a single electrowelded steel structural work: thick steel sheets and strengthening transversal elements allow to reduce to the minimum the distortions produced by the use of the machining centre. The mobile upright is stabilized before being machined, in order to release the tension accumulated during the welding phase. High precision is granted by the fact that the upright is machined with a single positioning on the machine tool.
The transversal carriage (Y axis) and the vertical carriage (Z axis) consist of a casting in aluminium light alloy; they are stabilized and then machined on the machine tool with a single positioning.
The machine frame is made of thick electrowelded steel sheets, properly strengthened in the most stressed areas.
The mechanical machining are performed in a single setup to ensure maximum accuracy.
The upright beam, mobile in the longitudinal direction (X axis) is made of electrowelded steel with gantry structure: thick steel sheets and reinforcing transversal elements grants an higher rigidity and allow to obtain the maximum precision.
The beam is stabilized before metal machining to release the tension accumulated during welding operations.
To achieve the highest precision the mechanical machining are performed in a single setup.
Transversal and vertical carriages
The transversal carriage (Y axis) and the vertical carriage (Z axis) are made of an aluminium light alloy casting which is stabilized and then machined in a single setup for maximum precision.
Axes drives and motor systems
Biesse uses Brushless motors, controlled by digital axes drives.
The interfacing between axes drives and numerical control is digital.
The digital system Mechatrolink allows the following:
Higher machining speed, since a portion of the toolpath is controlled by the axis drive instead of the numerical control
Higher working precision, thanks to a faster data processing
Higher reliability, thanks to a reduced wiring system which eliminates electrical interferences that may occur on analog systems
Reduced machine stops and downtime, thanks to the errors diagnostic with explanatory messages displayed directly on the N.C.
Guides of Controlled Axes
All axes use linear guides in tempered and ground steel and preloaded ball bearings. A sliding gasket protects the guides from chips and dust. The dimensions and the great centerdistance between the guides grant precision and optimum finish performed by the operating units.
Automatic Lubrication System - 7000205
At each set time interval, adjustable in the numerical control, the pump automatically sends the lubricant to the machine moving parts (linear guides and bearings, recirculating ball screws), with no machine downtime and no operator's intervention.
When the quantity of lubricant in the tank reaches the minimum, a warning message appears on the NC screen.
The automatic pump send grease to the following items:
Recirculating balls bearings of the X, Y and Z axes
Rack and pinions system of the X and Y transmissions
Ballscrew nut of the Z axis transmission
X axes linear guides seal cover strips - Size 1224 - 7022305

Emergency recovery procedure
This function allows operators to restart an interrupted working due to a machine emergency stop. The program restarts exactly from where it was interrupted, by following a specific procedure. The working can be restarted when the emergency stop happened during:
A routing cycle with the electrospindle
A drilling cycle with the boring head
A cutting cycle with a blade
An automatic tool changing cycle
Any ISO instruction programmed movement
The introduction of this functionality avoids to discard half-finished components, which sometimes are made of valuable materials (rare woods, etc.). It also allows operators to save time in case of long programs execution.
Tool life calculation function
The NC memorizes the distance covered by each routing tool and compares it to a value set by the operator.
When this set value is reached, a persistent warning message is displayed on the screen.
This message will be displayed each time a given tool has reached the value set by the operator.
An hardware output (alternate or continuous, chosen by the customer) allows the connection of an external device (for instance a flashing light or a siren) which will be activated when the message appears on the screen.
