Thermwood Advanced Technical Features

  • Volumetric 3D Laser Compensation - this compensates for position errors within the three dimensional working envelope of the machine.
  • Fixture Placement Compensation - Allows the user to mechanically locate three points on a fixture during intial program set up which are used as a reference for the QCore SuperControl to automatically align the program to the new fixture location. 
  • Continuous C-Axis Rotation - allows the machine to perform complex motions that require multiple rotations of the C-Axis, and then quickly return to home. Simplifies operations and eliminates the possibility of damaged wire within movable joints (maintenance-free metal contacts provide log life with error-free data communication transmission).
  • Constant Tip Speed Machining - Automatically varies the machine feed speed to allow the tip of the tool to maintain a constant speed.  This feature synchronizes the linear and rotary movements ensuring a constant and smooth cutting motion.
  • Tip Center Rotation - Allows for maintaining tool tip positioning when commanding a rotary axis to move in coordination with two or more linear axes.
  • Impact Resistant Head - A positive locating joint between the axis 5 arm and the rest of the machine.  Decreases the amount of force applied to the head in the event of a collision and diminishes the need to realignment.  Also reduces fixture and spindle damage.
  • Remote Diagnostics - provides direct, live, visual contact from the machine control to Thermwood's Service department with the touch of a button.  Thermwood technicians can diagnose, troubleshoot and configure the control remotely.
  • Advanced Communications - Communication features available between the operator and the Thermwood QCore SuperControl allow the operator to electronically search programming and maintenance manuals, view maintence videos, error reporting, maintenance tracking and dynamic exploded assembly drawings.
  • Single Source Service - thermwood factory service for both the CNC Control System and the CNC Machine.  One phone number to call.
  • Control Upgrades - On-going control upgrades.  The evolution and latest features of our control system are available at www.thermwood.com.

Thermwood to Demonstrate New Auto-Labeling and Unload System on Model 43 and Solid Wood Machining on Model 45

Thermwood CabinetShop 43 with Auto Label and Unload Options

The 2013 AWFS Show (July 24th-27th) promises to be an exciting opportunity to visit Las Vegas and see the very latest in CNC Router technology from Thermwood! 

For AWFS 2013, Thermwood is proud to demonstrate our affordable CabinetShop 43 CNC Router equipped with the new optional Auto Labeling and Unload Rake System for nested based production.  This new system will be in action at AWFS 2013 in Booth #8400.

 

Featuring the CabinetShop 43 with New Automatic Labeling and Unload System:

 

Speed up Production Time

This new option helps save time by automating the process of placing labels and off-loading finished material.  The automated system quickly places the labels and then machines the parts.  It next unloads the finished material to a sorting table.  This automatic and economical addition can greatly speed up production time, and is available both on new machines and as a retrofit.

Also at AWFS we will be demonstrating a Fravol edgebander.  Fravol, known for high quality edgebanders, is exclusively represented and serviced in the US by Thermwood.

 

Also Demonstrating Solid Wood Machining on the Thermwood Model 45

CabinetShop 45

 

We will also be demonstrating solid wood machining utilizing the Nemi Pod Hi-Flow System on our Thermwood Model 45

The heavy-duty Model 45 is designed for a variety of functions including the machining of rotary operations when equipped with our optional C-Axis.  This expands the capability of this already useful machine to include volutes, carvings, chair parts, stair components and much more.

Impact Resistant Head - A positive locating joint between the axis 5 arm and the rest of the machine.  Decreases the amount of force applied to the head in the event of a collision, diminishes the need for realignment and reduces fixture and spindle damage.


Thermwood Continuous C-Axis Rotation with Impact Resistant Head on Model 67 - Video Demonstration

For the first time offered together, the Thermwood Continuous C-Axis Rotation and Impact Resistant Head. The Continuous C-Axis allows the machine to perform complex motions that require multiple rotations of the C-Axis, and then quickly return to home. With the Impact Resistant Head, the machine stays in tram even after a crash of the head.
