Jobs SpA’s medium-size milling center, the eVer 7, is characterized by an overhead gantry structure sliding on fixed columns or on a concrete base. The developments in this machine product are premised on simplification, including fewer components without cutting performance.

The eVer 7 design principles are premised on high dynamics and chip removal capacity via the crossbeam structure with multi-triangle section, called together the “MT-frame.” The machine provides high acceleration and speed (ranging to 1,575 ipm) through innovative mechanics and kinematics, reducing hourly operating costs. Users can customize configurations with fixed or interchangeable heads, a range of accessories and options for integrated turning. The machine also enables flexibility in use, with ergonomic features and easy loading/unloading operations. The enclosure makes for efficient containment of chips and other machining residue; simplified maintenance.

The machine is equipped with the BUSS system for automatic milling head change. It also features a three-axis T3A power head T3A (5,000 rpm, up to 59 hp), particularly suitable for operations requiring high removal rate, and a T3K twist head with a 15,000 rpm electrospindle for semi-finishing and finishing machining.

According to the company, the eVer 7 represents an excellent solution for machining large aeronautical components and molds and dies requiring both high-power chip removal capacity and high-speed finishing operations.
