Typhoon 70 is the 4th generation IMA automatic cutter. It has a new cutting head with blade speed up to 6000 rpm, counter-rotating masses to minimize vibration, blade effort sensors to achieve high cutting quality, proportional valves for pneumatic cylinder control. The kinematics of the machine is based on a rack pinion system for all axes, guaranteeing high dynamic performance during acceleration, thanks also to zero-point epicyclic gearboxes. The bridge is governed by an electric axis system, with two engines working in parallel, capable of self-regulating and greater precision in the machine.
A completely new base structure with high strength structural elements and a new suction system with dual turbines ensure high performance. Each single turbine is governed by a dedicated inverter that communicates in real time with each other through the PID control of the numeric control. A newer, more powerful, fully digital electronics, provides greater computing power and immediacy in hardware response. Innovations are also in the man-machine interface, and applications have been redesigned graphically and in functionality, with particular attention to ergonomics and ease of use. The adoption of a bridge control console has made it easier and faster to routine operations.
Typhoon only has digital controls like all new IMA machines. Thanks to this, the new IMA cutter can be integrated into the Syncro Cutting Room system, which is for use both on the web and within the corporate network.
