This year Leader CNC Technologies has successfully installed a Gruppo Parpas Roller in a thriving company in the north of the U.K.
The Gruppo Parpas Roller is a fixed gantry machine which offers flexibility through a wide variety of table configurations and spindle heads. The square or round continuous rotary table, capable of carrying loads up to 3500kg, it can also be supplied for turning applications up to 600rpm. The continuous universal head is fitted with a high torque 18000rpm spindle and other spindle options are available.
Gruppo Parpas, consisting of Parpas, OMV & Famu, is one of the major European manufacturers of medium to large CNC metal cutting machine tools and is an established supplier of sophisticated gantry mills, horizontal borers and 5-axis machines to a diverse number of industries.
At the International EMO Exhibition in Hannover in September, Gruppo Parpas will be demonstrating an XS, an extended stroke Roller XL and a Unika Mech. The XS gantry mill can machine parts up to 20M long and, with its wide range of tools and attachments, together with the capability of interchanging high speed/high torque spindle cartridges, offers maximum flexibility for processing heavy and complex components. The Roller XL, a portal milling centre, is a larger derivative of the standard 5-axis model, providing the same high accuracy and machining capability, but for larger components. The Unika Series is available with a selection of rotary or trunnion tables, indexers and spindle heads, perfect for the blading, blisk and other complex parts, by offering high speed milling capability and high accuracy achieved through the use of permanent magnet linear motor drives.
