Travelling Column ENDURA® 1000LINEAR

Market leader in the machining of aluminum profiles for rail technology.

Travelling Column Milling Machine Endura® 1000LINEAR

The linear motor drive technology has already impressively proven itself in many machines from FOOKE GmbH's product range. Therefore, the linear motor drive technology was again used in the travelling column milling machine ENDURA® 1000LINEAR. The machine concept of the FOOKE ENDURA® tool milling machine is particularly suitable for high-speed machining of large-volume workpieces.

The easy loadability of an ENDURA® 1000LINEAR travelling column milling machine, even with the largest workpieces, is also an enormous advantage of this machine concept. Due to its design, this travelling column milling machine can be manufactured in almost any length (X travel).

Modular travelling column milling machine with high acceleration rates

Acceleration rates of up to 5 m/sec² impressively reflect the dynamics and precision of these machines. With the same surface quality and accuracy, you can achieve a significant increase in speed compared to conventional traveling column milling machines.

Features, technology and equipment:

  • Highly modern GANTRY portal milling machine:
    Gantry moving in X-direction.
  • Design of the machine:
    The machine bed with the laterally mounted X-guide and drive systems of the gantry is built and aligned on the foundation designed for this purpose. The longitudinal beams of the machine bed are braced by cross beams. The moving column, longitudinal beams, cross beams, portal (Y-axis) and walking beam (Z-axis) are each manufactured as a rigid welded steel structure.
  • Drive technology of linear axes:
    Water-cooled linear motors in linear axes Y and Z, X-axis designed as rack-and-pinion GANTRY unit and drive motors in MASTER-SLAVE arrangement.
  • Measuring systems:
    The X axis is equipped with an indirect measuring system and the Y, Z and rotary axes are equipped with direct measuring systems.
  • Z-axis weight compensation:
    Highly dynamic pneumatic cylinders support the Z-axis drive.
  • Safety system of linear axes:
    The linear axes are equipped with a safety system that can decelerate and hold the axes safely in the event of a loss of voltage.
  • Linear axes guides:
    The linear axes are equipped with hardened and ground, backlash-free pre-tensioned guide elements.
