Biesse Rover C Edge
Biesse America announces the exhibition of the ROVER C EDGE at IWF 2008. The Rover C Edge is a machining center designed for routing, drilling and edgebanding of contoured panels with a single machine. The Rover C Edge with a double Y-axis makes it possible to carry out edgebanding operations while the electrospindle is tooling up. In the dual-electrospindle configuration, both spindles can change tools simultaneously. Additional dedicated units for specific machining operations can virtually eliminate tool change time. Large-capacity tool changers (100+ tools in the richest configuration) ensure that all tools required are always available. The Rover C Edge can handle any type of profile. A sizeable, easy to maintain glue reservoir is fed by a glue pallet tank, which keeps the glue fresh and ready. The Rover C Edge applies the glue directly to the panel using a precision roller, which ensures better glue distribution and stronger tape adhesion. Even in thin tape edgebanding, there is no tape distortion. And thanks to a banding material length counting system using double precision encoders, no additional thickness tracer or photocell systems are needed to accomplish perfect butt-joint edgebanding. The Rover C Edge uses EPS (Electronic Positioning System), the first, most proven system for CNC positioning of worktables and pods without operator intervention. The machine also comes standard with BiesseWorks Advanced software, making programming very simple and intuitive.
