5 AXIS MILLING MACHINE

To reduce the working time on the realization of models and moulds, FB Design has bought a five axis milling machine with numeric control (CNC) with a working surface of 24x6,5x3,5 meters, big enough to build a full-scale hull.

Thanks to this machine it's possible to create both moulds and models made in polyurethane material that are already prepared for the final moulding and that need just to be strengthen on the surface. This milling machine is capable of changing his tools in a totally automatic way.
The control system of the machine is placed on the border of it and it uses a dedicated CAM software that: decides the path of all the tools, calculates the possible collisions, estimates the working time and feigns visually the superficial quality of the finished piece.
