The OMNI-FLEX line is made of three very different universal machining systems. They
are ideally suited for the machining of complex parts in small batches
machined on 5-6 sides even with compound angles.
The “TRI-CENTER” version is a flexible machining composed by 3 or more machining centers.
It minimizes the pure cost and floor space requirements when compared with multiple horizontal machining centers. Reducing the cost for each build piece in the production of small and middle series.
It offers at least 3 times the productivity of a stand alone horizontal machining center with minimum tooling, fixturing, and “set-up labor” costs the part clamping device allows the simultaneous machining
of more parts or the production of parts with inclined machining operations also on 5 axes.
The "QUATTRO" version integrates two CNC 5-axis machining
modules. Each module is equipped with two machining spindles (for
a total of 80 tools available), each of the 2 universal clamping fixture is equipped with 2 full CNC rotary axes in order to allow machining with any inclination.
The "MULTI" version is intended for bigger batches offering exceptionally quick
cycle times for a universal machine. It is a flexible transfer machine
equipped with up to 27 multi-axes machining modules, suitable for the production of complex parts in small batches
with quick cycle times and the widest versatility. Machining cube
of 250 or 350 mm (5-sided, 81 tools, possibility of accurate and exceptionally
fast single-point threading and static turning).
The TRANS-N-CENTER line represents those transfer machines designed in order to
optimize flexibility and productivity in the machining of wide
families of parts. Main featurings: patented multi-process multi-axis
modules with tool change in 0.3-0.6 seconds; static turning
heads with Buffoli CNC controlled interpolation, single clamping
machining of complex parts thanks to orienting clamping devices
or indexing chucks; wide applications field; quick changeover
times; transfer machine productivity; simultaneous processing
of different parts.
Buffoli's customers change over the machine many times/day, producing easy or complex parts, even in batches of about ten parts. The combination of Precision, Speed and Just in Time production represents the winning solution provided by the Buffoli machines.
All lines are characterized by BUFFOLI
MULTI-PROCESSING CNC, illustrative self-help manual, easy window based
programming and a FULLY
INTEGRATED TOOL MONITORING SYSTEM.
