Gruppo Parpas’ High Quality Machine Tool Range for Aerospace & Energy Sectors!

Gruppo Parpas, one of Leader CNC Technologies newest principals, has specialised in the manufacture of some of its machine tools for the aerospace and energy industries. To make sure customers are fully satisfied, fully trained engineers are assigned to evaluate the application and configure the machine to make sure that machining is at its best to ensure the best quality and precision of the final product.

The range of machine tools designated for aerospace and energy is varied - they include the Unika, Diamond, HSC, Shark and the Roller.

The newest machine tool announced last year, the Unika, is a high speed milling centre with a movable column. The machine achieves an impressive feed rate of 60 M/min, with the movements of the linear axes being cooled to maintain a constant controlled temperature when producing parts of high precision. The working area can be fitted with an index table, tailstock and various clamping and fixture systems.

The Diamond gantry style machining centre has a choice of 3 ~ 5 axes for high speed mould&die machining, as well as complex aerospace parts. The machine is built round a monobloc structure using a moving gantry and a stationary workpiece for processing heavy loads.

The HSC Linear is another compact high speed machining machine built round a fixed bed and moving column design. This machining centre uses linear motor drives to achieve rapid rates of 60M/min and also offers a wide choice of various head attachments, integral rotary tables or trunnions, making it ideal for the manufacture of complex components within the aerospace and energy industries. For different and special applications, the HSC can be equipped with twin spindles for mass production, or specially configured for parts such as turbine blades.

The Shark is a fixed bed moving column machining centre combining high torque, excellent performance and high speed. The ram can be fitted with a number of head attachments and a table of up to an impressive 5.5M in length is available with either a rotary table or a central partition for pendulum milling. The swift tool changing reduces lead time and production costs.

Finally, the fixed gantry Roller offers maximum 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, can also be supplied to include turning applications up to 600rpm. The continuous universal head is fitted with a high torque 18000rpm spindle and other spindle options are available.
