FOOKE Compact Portal Milling Machine ENDURA® 600LINEAR Specialist in milling models and prototypes

The portal milling machines of construction series ENDURA® 600LINEAR by FOOKE

(PresseBox) (Borken, ) Since years, FOOKE, established in 1904 and till this day a family owned company with actually approximately 200 employees, designs, constructs and manufactures big and very big 5 axes milling machines mostly made in portal construction. Beside the aviation and aerospace industry, the railway and automotive industry, FOOKE supplies many other branches with efficient and reliable machines.

A special focus of FOOKE is the 5 axes milling machines for producing models, prototypes, tools and moulds. Completing the successful construction series ENDURA® 700LINEAR and 900LINEAR, FOOKE is now presenting the ENDURA® 600LINEAR.

Also in this machine construction series, it is about a 5 axes milling machine with a moving GANTRY portal on top in x direction. Machines of the construction series ENDURA® 600LINEAR available in different sizes, are particularly suitable to machine all usual materials in the model and prototype construction, e.g. industry plasticine (Clay), model making block material as well as aluminum.

The linear and round axes of an ENDURA® 600LINEAR are all driven by linear and/or torque motors and guarantee maximum dynamic, best accuracy and surface quality at the same time.

Actually, two milling heads in fork construction with different high frequency milling spindle (HSK63 A) with up to 70 Nm torque and till 30,000 rpm, are available.

Depending on customers wish, the machine can be equipped by a CNC Control fabricated by SIEMENS, HEIDENHAIN or FIDIA. Of course, tool changer, systems for dust removal or disposal of chips and different measuring systems are available.

The first machine will be started up in the beginning of 2012 in a well-known car manufacturer and used for the production of design models. FOOKE will for the first time, present the new machine of construction series ENDURA® 600LINEAR at the trade fair EUROMOLD from November 29 to December 2, 2011 in Frankfurt.
