Biesse Elix K3 CNC Bore, Glue Dowel Inserter
AMERICA North (USA-Canada-Mexico)
• Drill Dowel Inserter
A single-spindle for drilling, dowel insertion unit, and glue injecting unit installed on a carriage moving in the “X” axis.
The position for drilling dowel insertion is provided through simple programs through the NC control or third party software.
The Numerical Control interface is intuitive, user-friendly, and very easy to use.
Max. parts length is 1,300 mm (51”); min. parts length is 120 mm (4.7”); parts thickness is 10 – 40 mm (0.4” to 1.5”)
• Positioning Speed:
“X” & “Y” axis positioning speed is 40 MPM (131 FPM), “Z” axis has manual adjustment with a max stroke
of 40 mm (1.57″).The working units travel on precision machine ground ball screws powered by brushless AC Servo motors.
Working Zones … (4) with center fence position in up mode, (2) large work zones in down position, (4) hold-down cylinders.
• Boring unit:
The drilling unit is a high-speed unit with a 6,000 RPM spindle and max. drilling depth of 30 mm (1.25″);
max. drill bit dia. is 12 mm (0.47″); manual adjustment of depth with digital indicator.
• Dowel Insertion Unit:
Dowel prepositioning ensuring high repeatability of inserting dowels for each hole; the distance
between the dowel insertion unit and the drilling spindle is 32 mm (1.3″) for simultaneous drilling and dowel insertion
when holes are spaced at 32 mm; Standard dowel dimensions, 8 x 30 mm, max. dowel projection 14 mm (0.551″).
The glue tank holds up to 8 liters (3.1 gallons) of glue; the max. glue density is 900 CPS.
The glue inserting unit has a flow sensor and electronic adjustment of the amount of glue.
