The ACS + CFMcurve integrated sawing and machining center combines operations in a single system. Bundles of mill stock as long as 16.5 m are placed in an automatic loader, individually separated and fed to the sawing process. Cut parts are transferred to the machining process for finishing. Utilizing advanced controls, linear ballscrews and servomotors, all mechanical motion is integrated into the machine design for process control.
The ACS sawing function uses electronics, servomotors and custom software to control the saw blade during the cutting process. According to the company, a proprietary sawing algorithm yields the fastest saw cutting time, best surface finish and longest saw blade life. The CFMcurve machining center is a custom process that simultaneously machines each workpiece end using 12 independent servo controlled axes. Machining options include threading, boring, profile turning, grooving, radius edges and angled chamfering. Programming screens guide operators for setup. 
The control system saves part files for recall when changing parts, the company says. Servomotors move all cutting and machining tools to their programmed positions and implement saved parameters. No tooling change is required in the ACS Saw within a diameter range of 10 mm; there is a 5-mm diameter range in the CFMcurve. Clamping forces and position, saw blade torque and vibration, and machining insert torque are continuously displayed and monitored. Operating limits are set and machine functions stop when they are not met. Key data for each part produced is stored in memory for statistical evaluation.
