For more information, visit COMPOSITE FABRICATOR Laguna Tools, Irvine, Calif., introduces the Composite Fabricator CF16 CNC Machining Center developed specifically for the ACM (Aluminum-Composite- Material) fabrication industry. The large table format (6' x16') is especially well-suited for machining the large architectural panels that are required in many ACM applications. Machining accuracy and cut quality are assured by the exclusive Laguna SmartShop one-piece, all-welded structural steel base frame system. The machines feature Laguna's special six-zone vacuum table design and a variety of vacuum pumps are available with the machines depend- ing on application requirements. The "silky-smooth" movement of the traveling gantry machines is a result of precise machining of the frame components, precision- ground contour guide rails in all axes, and world-class motion control. Move- ment on both X and Y axes is achieved with helical rack-and-pinions driven by precision planetary drive systems. Z axis motion is controlled by precision- ground ball screw and the precision planetary drive system.
