New window production system from Weinig

The CNC system Conturex has been setting standards in window manufacturing. Now Weinig has extended the model range with a compact center.

With the fully automatic system, it was possible to produce windows of first-class quality. The Conturex concept includes items such as single part production, complete processing in one clamping process, set-up-free processing and tool splitting with all the associated advantages.

The heart of the system solution to this day is the patented clamping system. The tool is guided past the firmly clamped work piece and not vice versa.

Since the first machine, Weinig has continuously worked to build an ever broader portfolio. The new Conturex Artis is another milestone that is designed to be a flexible, high-performance machine for smaller companies as an answer to the consolidation process in the window market.

With a capacity from seven window units per shift, the Artis is positioned below the previous entry-level machine, Conturex Compact. Technically, it has all the features that make up the current success of the CNC series and the machine offers the user limitless options in terms of window systems.

In addition, it has an open, modular concept and a system capability that corresponds to the latest state of the digital world.

RePos easy, the patent-pending re-clamping process enables variable part clamping and automatic movement of the work pieces in the machine. The work pieces remain clamped throughout the manufacturing process, thus achieving maximum precision and quality.

 

For complex clamping situations, PowerGrip RePos easy also enables clamping in the fold. The qualities of the new development prove to be particularly advantageous with slim profiles and new architectural window systems.

The Conturex Artis is equipped with the main spindle with 3-axles but is also available with 4-axle technology. An indirect drive protects the 30-kW motor in critical situations. The standard machine is designed for lengths from 175 to 3,500 mm and can process work pieces up to 4,500 mm.

The new machine includes the Weinig CAM, a fully-fledged and easily programmable 3D CAD/CAM system for individual design. Also supplied is Weinig Sim, which allows the visualization of production data. The simulation of the process steps planned ensures effective collision control, for example.

Standard interfaces for any common industry software, e.g. window/door production, WOP or external CAD/CAM software, complete the Artis IT package. As a result, the Conturex Artis can be easily integrated into the complete Weinig solid WF, which opens the system to a wide range of work environments.
