FORMAT4. Uncompromising expertise for the highest of requirements
The Felder Group premium brand has met the highest standards of professional users since 2001. The customised high-performance solutions are uncompromisingly innovative, offer maximum operating comfort and complete productivity.
For the highest demands, all inclusive - tool library, programming section and an operator control panel on the machine with a consistent and intuitive user interface. F4®Integrate is a software developed by Format4® Developed from practical experience for practical use in cooperation with our CNC customers, F4®Integrate meets the highest demands in modern CNC machining.
Enjoy the comfort of a state-of-the-art and well-coordinated user interface. Tool library (F4Toolbox), programming section (CAM area with integrated CAD area, F4Create) and machine operation control (F4Operate) all packed into just one single screen, with a consistent and intuitive user interface.
F4Integrate is based on G-Code, so external industry programs can be easily connected and the transfer of programs smoothly organised.
With a motor power of 10, 12 or 15 kW (depending on the series) and up to 24,000 rpm, the milling motor is controlled using an inverter and is attached directly to the support module of the drilling head in the Z axis. Dual linear guides guarantee highly precise vertical guiding. The main motor is positioned using ground ball screws. The HSK F63 tool clamping is done automatically. The clamping of the tool is checked using sensors, which then confirm that it is safe to start the operation. The tool holder is cleaned pneumatically. The C-axis is available as the fourth axis and is interpolating (360°) with a compressed air interface for aggregates as standard.
Regardless whether the machine will only be used for cabinet manufacturing or as an all-rounder, you can decide which drilling head configuration is the right one for you. Choose between, a drilling head with only vertical spindles or one with spindles and a grooving saw for vertical and horizontal processing. Inverter controlled motor up to 7,500 rpm
All across the piece of furniture, F4®Solutions generates a consistent, efficient and profitable production process. The software tools for maximum productivity accompany you through the entire production chain. Easiest design of individual pieces of furniture in the familiar CAD environment. Photorealistic rendering of sales assisting 3D visualizations. Detailed data transfer to all integrated machines with economic nesting optimization. Even the final assembly is accompanied by clear, detailed drawings and 3D data - that's 4.0 for trade and industry. In our videos you will learn everything about Craft 4.0 and Industry 4.0.
The labeling system facilitates the work steps and guarantees absolute process reliability. The automatic pre-labelling on the loading table minimizes sources of error and at the same time reduces the processing times.
At automatic loading, the lifting table positions the stack of panels directly to the appropriate working height. The alignment of the panel materials takes place directly on the lifting table and synchronously for processing on the working field. This saves time and increases productivity.
With the performance package, the CNC control makes the highest industry standard possible. Different optimisation levels ensure shorter process times, different milling results and increased comfort in CNC machining.
Increase of the maximum axis speeds by up to 30% in the X and Y directions.
Optimisation of positioning and rotation speeds by up to 80%
"Multitouch" function on the control terminal for user-friendly CNC machine operation
Smooth, consistent and steady tool movements for best surface results on the finished workpiece.
Reduced vibration behaviour during CNC machining via the built-in jerk control
The automatic labelling unit places the component labels in the correct position even before processing.
This reduces sources of error and eliminates the need for additional work for the machine operator once processing has been completed.
Thanks to its small footprint, the short out-feed table simplifies the removal of workpieces for operators. They are gradually pushed off the worktable towards the operator. Using the optional labelling unit, operators can label the workpieces directly at their point of removal so that they can be identified in subsequent production processes.
