CNC Machining Center for ACM Fabrication

Laguna Tools introduces the Composite Fabricator CF16 CNC Machining Center designed for the ACM (Aluminum-Composite-Material) Fabrication Industry. The CF16 features a large table format (6’ x 16’) well suited for machining the large architectural panels that are required in many ACM applications, says the company, and Laguna’s SmartShop one-piece, all-welded structural steel base frame system. The machines feature special six-zone vacuum table design. A variety of vacuum pumps are available with the machines, depending on application requirements, adds Laguna. Laguna Tools’ ACM machining package includes three "floating head" CNC electro-spindles to perform the machining functions typical to ACM fabrication and a chip removal shroud system that directs all the available vacuum to the active machining head, keeping chip damage to a minimum. A typical Composite Fabricator CF16 configuration would include two machining heads used for miter-folding and panel cutout, says the company. The third floating head in the package also includes mist lubrication. The Laguna "Touch" CNC fully-networkable machine controller was developed with B & R Automation and the touch screen-based control interface is designed to make the CF16 easy-to-learn and easy-to-use, according to the company.

About Laguna Tools

Laguna Tools was founded in 1983 by Torben Helshoj who saw an opportunity to bring high-quality European woodworking machinery to the US. The first tools to be introduced were combination machines and soon lead to Laguna Tools’ most iconic machine, the Italian Bandsaw. Over the years we built an extensive line of woodworking machinery before moving forward with development of our own CNC Automation.

We launched our line of CNC Machines with the SmartShop and soon followed it up with the Swift and IQ machines. After innovating on the CNC Router end, we came out with even more advanced machinery such as CO2 Lasers and Plasma Cutters. Now we have a wider range of machinery available than ever before, all to help our customers achieve their goals to improve the way they do business.
