The CMA CNC FTC automatic tapping centres are characterized by a 3-axis (X, Y, Z) moving head. They are designed for drilling, tapping and countersinking sheet metal from laser cutting. The innovate floating head system is designed and manufactured by CMA. It is capable of absorbing deviations in workpiece positioning of up to 1mm.
Each and every operation is perfectly programmable via a PC controller with CMA's own CNC software (TapCam) with the possibility of importing 2D/3D files and automatically converting them into the machine's ISO codes.
The spindle is guided along the table on hardened precision linear guides mounted on the body of the machines. The X-axis is driven by a helical rack and pinion and the Y and Z axes by a self-lubricating ball screw.
