FICEP will present a variety of CNC machines, including the Gemini 254 PG and the 601 DE Excalibur 6, on Stand 4740 at Mach 2010, which is due to be held at the NEC in Birmingham on 7-11 June.

The Gemini 254 PG is an advanced, multi-function and flexible system for profile cutting, drilling, machining and scribing, with a bevelling capability and an advanced material cutting capability using either HT2000 or HPR260 Hypertherm plasma-arc systems.

The machine, which has a compact footprint, can produce flat metal parts from plate, measuring 5mm up to 75mm in thickness, in one setup, more economically but with the same or greater accuracy than using more expensive separate cutting and labour-intensive machining centres, according to the company.

FICEP claims that the 601 DE Excalibur 6 can provide additional capacity for companies looking for a low-cost solution to increase productivity.

The new small-footprint drilling line features a moveable spindle that rapidly travels the entire length of the material and has the ability to drill a hole (up to 40mm in diameter) every five seconds or 500 holes in 43 minutes and 26 seconds.

This CNC system is suitable for flange drilling, web drilling, angles, plate detail and structural tubes measuring up to 610mm in height and 610mm in width.
