Weeke’s BP-100 is a truly industrial machine designed primarily for point-to-point boring and machining of flat components without special workpiece fixtures.
Weeke is uncompromising with high quality standards. They are an ISO 9001 certified machine tool builder. Weeke uses world class suppliers for critical items not made in house. In fact, most of the externally sourced components are sold and serviced on a worldwide basis and, of course, here in the U.S. Insistence on quality and highly industrialized components results in a very stable process–one that requires a minimum of inspection, preventive maintenance, or repair.
The BP-100 is constructed on a steel frame, with heavy steel ribs (gusset plates) welded to the frame inside the base to insure stability. The design and substantial mass provide a solid vibration-free platform for the machining head. The head rides on THK linear motion guides. In fact, the X-, Y-, and Z-axes are all supported on THK machine tool guides. THK guides were designed to produce straight line tracking at high travel rates, with outstanding stability–both in the radial and side directions. The X-axis is driven by a zero-backlash, pre-loaded, helically ground rack and pinion gear system. High precision ball screws drive the Y- and Z-axes. Indramat solid state drives and brushless AC servo motors are utilized to move the axes.
The BP-100 features a Windows-based control with intuitive programming software.
Vertical Boring with 19 Spindles
Eight (8) spindles are aligned in the X-axis and are typically utilized for row holes. There are also ten (10) spindles aligned in the Y-axis. All spindles are on 32-mm center distances. The spindles utilize standard boring bits, 70 mm long, up to 20 mm in diameter, with 10-mm diameter smooth shanks. One (1) special spindle, for large drills up to 35 mm in diameter, is offset in the X-axis. A 1.5 Kw motor drives the vertical-boring gearbox.
Horizontal Boring with Four Individually Selectable Spindles
The horizontal-boring block has four (4) spindles. The drill spindles are positioned to the left, right, front, and back of the machining head. (0?, 90?, 180? and 270?).
Three (3) 5.0 Kw vertical routers with 25 mm ETP hydro clamping chucks are located on the right side of the beam. The router motor, supplied by Perske, features an integrated rotor and tool spindle with a hydro clamping chuck. This one-piece assembly, manufactured by ETP of Sweden for Weeke, combines the motor rotor and the tool chuck in a single integrated part for highest precision. In addition, hydraulic clamping pressure assures perfect centering of the tool as it is clamped with no axial or radial stress. These special router features, combined with the exceptional mass and rigidity the machine’s frame, give the best possible surface finish with higher feed rates and longer tool life. An adapter is included to adapt the 25-mm chuck to inch increment router tools (i.e. 1/2″, 3/8″, etc.). Note: two (2) ETP toolholders with ½” collets to be included and shipped with the machine.
A solid state frequency inverter manufactured by KEB is utilized to power the router. The inverter output is programmable through the control with constant power from 9000 rpm to 18000 rpm. Spindle rotation, RH or LH, is also programmable. The inverter has a 13.0 KVA power rating.
The X-axis grooving saw is powered by a 1.5 Kw, 60 Hz motor. It is installed at the front of the machining head. 100-mm diameter saw blades are required for this unit.
Dust extraction is provided by a central dust collection manifold, with automatic dampers to each of the machining spindles to maximize dust extraction efficiency. The connection port at the back of the manifold is 200-mm diameter. The horizontal-boring unit has no provision for dust collection.
Panel Support Benches
Six (6) panel support benches are supplied with the machine and have two (2) vacuum pods each. The support benches have a control button conveniently located on the front to disengage the pneumatic brakes for X-axis adjustment. The vacuum pods are matrix type, 145 mm x 145 mm. With the vacuum seal configured for the narrowest part, it is possible for the pods to hold 50-mm wide strips. With six (6) support benches and both left and right zero stops, it is possible to load the machine with two (2) workpieces at a time.
Panel Feeding Rails
Panel feeding rails are attached to one side of each support bench (can be easily moved to either side). The rails move upward to provide a smooth surface for loading and unloading. The rails retract downward to set the panels on the vacuum pods.
A powerful vacuum pump with 100 cubic meters/hour capacity has enough reserve suction for the most demanding jobs.
A perimeter fence helps prevent accidental intrusion from the ends or back of the machine.
Safety Photocell Barrier
A safety photocell barrier will assist in stopping the machine if the operator enters the working area while the machining head is in operation. The photocell barrier is divided into two (2) working zones so you may load or unload parts at one end of the machine while the machine continues to work on the opposite end.
The machine is equipped with the Weeke 2000-IPC continuous path control with intuitive programming software. The Weeke control features a graphic operator interface with icons to simplify operation. Programming is with simple coordinates or by the entry of formulas to define the relationship between panel size and hole locations (parametric programming). Some of the features of the Weeke 2000-IPC CNC control include the following:
• Industrial Personal Computer (IPC) for operator interface
• the IPC is a Pentium 100 Mhz Windows based machine
• 1.0 GB hard drive
• 16 MB of RAM
• floppy disk drive 3.5″
• the IPC is connected to a NUM programmable logic control for accurate and reliable control of all machine functions
