Description

The Whitney 657CNC Combination Machine Tool uses the fastest technologies to make parts – Punching and Plasma Cutting.

  • Punched holes provide accurate internal features.
  • It is faster to punch holes than to pierce and contour holes with plasma or laser.
  • External features are plasma cut. Advanced plasma-cutting technology provides highly productive contouring (much faster than laser) with high quality.
    • Small kerf angle (vertical cuts)
    • Dross-free cutting
  • Additional features such as forming (countersinks, tread plate, louvers), drilling and tapping can be added to eliminate additional downstream operations, allowing parts to be completed in a single operation.

Manufacturing costs are lower using the combination machine technology.

  • Labor costs are lower because it takes significantly less time to manufacture the parts.
  • Operating costs are lower.
  • Amortization of capital costs is significantly lower since
  • Lower initial capital cost than laser
  • Faster cycle time – Cost of capital per fabricated part is lower because capital costs are amortized over more fabricated parts.

The PROFIT-DOUBLER

  • Higher profit per part —lower overall cost per piece gives a higher profit margin per piece.
  • More parts generating profit—more parts are produced (in the same amount of time) on a combination machine, so there are more parts generating profit than on the other technologies.

Remote Diagnostics Package – allows many machine problems to be diagnosed via the Internet using TeamViewer. W. A. Whitney Service Technicians can log directly onto the CNC control for the purpose of diagnosing problems, reviewing NC programs, downloading new software, and changing parameters if required. Customer is responsible for providing a suitable Ethernet connection at the machine CNC control with Internet access. A telephone line or cell phone is recommended so that the technician can talk to the operator/maintenance person while diagnosing the problem.

Software License for all software resident on the CNC Control. The software is proprietary, and the intellectual property of W. A. Whitney Co. Prior to the commissioning of the machine tool, the user must sign a software license agreement. This is a non-transferable license that must be renewed by any and all subsequent owners of the machine tool. The value of this software license is $1,500.00, and it is included in the price of the machine.

Electrical Standards – The machine conforms to W. A. Whitney electrical design standards which are based on N. E. C., NFPA-79, and UL Standards with deviations. Components are NEMA and IEC rated where possible.

40 TON PUNCHING CAPACITY (STANDARD)

The 40 TON PUNCHING CAPACITY allows the 657CNC to:

  • Punch larger hole sizes in a given material type and thickness
  • Punch holes in higher tensile strength materials
  • Punch thicker materials

IMPORTANT NOTE: Punching of high tensile material is a special application for Whitney Combination Machine Tools and may void the machine warranty and cause premature tooling wear. High tensile strength material is defined as any material whose tensile strength is greater than 60ksi (413 MPa). Materials often referred to as “remnants” or “seconds” will often randomly exhibit tensile strength greater than 60ksi (413 MPa) and thus will void the machine’s warranty. WHITNEY reserves the right to have a representative sample of customer supplied material mechanically and/or chemically tested. If processing high tensile material, please consult the factory for a review of your specific requirements. In some cases, a larger Whitney Combination Machine model could be recommended.

HSD130 PLASMA CUTTING SYSTEM (STANDARD)

The Hypertherm™ HSD130 Oxygen Plasma Cutting System offers LongLife® Oxygen Parts Technology, giving high quality plasma cuts with excellent consumable life. Advantages of the HSD130 system include the following:

  • Little or no dross on plasma cut edges
  • Excellent contour definition (achieved due to a minimized “arc lag”)
  • Long consumable life – between 500 and 1200 starts per set of consumables
  • Improved kerf angle
  • Exceptional surface finish
