The ENDURA® 7000LINEAR is an overhead tool milling machine, specially designed for the heavy-duty rough machining of solid and high-strength materials. It has a dimensionally stable and compact design. This not only means a large processing volume with a relatively small footprint, but also that the machine does not need to be placed on foundations.
This compact tool milling machine ENDURA® 7000LINEAR was specially developed for the tool and mould construction, for a highly productive roughing, semi-finishing and finishing application of the customary high-strength material
Due to its high-dynamic features, the machine is particularly suitable for the high-efficiency machining in the field of 2,5 D, for processing ruled geometries, cutting contours, pockets, surfaces, drill holes, threads and spindle operations. In the field of 3D, the ENDURA® 7000LINEAR offers highest dynamics in its class, both in 3-axes as in 5-axes machining, from roughing to high precision processing with best surface results and an excellent dimensional accuracy.
During the machine’s new development, our top priority was the well-known, FOOKE-typical aspect of “excellent quality of motion control, coupled with highest accuracy of the “Tool Center Point”
The use of linear motors in specially designed machine structural elements enables the machine to be optimally controlled, minimises contouring errors and offers the highest line speeds. This gives rise to excellent motion dynamics, especially with inconstant geometric pathways.
The robust and weight-optimised design coupled with the use of vibration-damping casting materials in suitable structural components means that the vibrational excitations caused by the milling process and the directional-change-induced movements are vastly reduced/dampened.
