Thanks to CNC control of 3 tool axes machining of steel and non-ferrous metals is possible in all dimensions. This also applies to larger work pieces!

Axes drive with recirculating ball spindles (no backlash) and powerful step motors. Otherwise the mechanical design is almost identical to the MICRO miller FF 500: Solid, flat-milled compound table in steel with 3 continuous T-slots for size 8 standard T-nuts. Base of vibration-damping cast steel. Stable column with dovetail slideway. Milling head can be pivoted to the left and right by 90, with powerful, quiet and shock-free running condenser motor. Poly V-belt drive for 6 spindle speeds (180 - 2,500/min). Additional sleeve feed (30mm) using drilling lever with scale ring (1 graduation line = 1mm). Work piece fixing using steel collets.

Complete with CNC control unit, CNC programme software, all connecting cables, one each steel collets 6 - 8 - 10 and 12mm and detailed manual.

Since the mechanical design of the FF 500/CNC is almost identical to the FF 500, the accessories supplied for it can be used without restriction. This also applies to the dividing attachment UT 400/CNC for the 4th axis!

  1. Powerful, quiet and shock-free running condenser motor (400W).

  2. Poly V-belt drive for 6 spindle speeds from 180 - 2,500/min.

  3. Flat-milled table in steel (400 x 125mm) with 3 continuous T-nuts.

  4. Step motor for Y-axis (travel distance approx. 100mm).

  5. Step motor for X-axis (travel distance approx. 290mm).

  6. Stable column with dovetail slideway.

  7. Recirculating ball spindle for Z-axis. Drive via step motor mounted in column (travel distance approx. 200mm).


Brief description of software and hardware:
The software is harmonized with mechanics, motors and the control unit of the CNC machine, thus offering the optimum performance.

The CNC control unit controls the step motors of the machine. The PC software provides the machine with the geometry information for travel of the tools (via RS 232 interface). This means that the control unit is the interface between software and the mechanics of the machine.

Powerful micro processors and accordingly dimensioned step motors and phases ensure that the motors always provide enough power for any machining processes. Two freely usable output relays in the casing of the control unit provide facilities for control of additional functions, e.g. a working lamp. Including connection cables with suitable plugs and built-in power supply for connection to 220 - 240V.

Simple creation of work piece geometry
The CAD window is displayed when the programme starts. The work piece contour is created in the familiar WINDOWS environment. Numerous auxiliary aids help during programme operation, which supports both coordinate entry (absolute and relative) in addition to mouse use.

Technology information is allocated to every drawing element. This makes, for example, different processing speeds and manual tool replacement possible.
Read-in of existing files in .dxf format is possible as well.

Automatic generation of CAM data
The finished drawing of the tool is converted, by a mouse click, into the instruction set for the machine. So, machining can be started immediately. The instruction set generated in this way is in accordance with DIN/ISO 66025 and can be manually edited and exported. Conversely, the system also permits importing or complete self writing of data sets.

Software update for the FF 500/CNC

CNC simulation
If requested, the travel distances of the tool are simulated in the graphic window. In this way, faults in the programming can be recognised in time.

Manual work
The handwheels are replaced with the step motors of the CNC machine. Nevertheless, manual machining is possible with the help of cursor buttons, since the step motors can be operated manually.

Software installation
The PC software is supplied on a CD ROM. The problem-free installation is effected under WINDOWS as usual.

PC or laptop are not part of the scope of delivery. Minimum requirements for the hardware: Pentium processor with 400 MHz frequency (or comparable), high-quality graphic card (64 MB RAM) and at least 40 MB free hard disc storage.

4th axis to the PROXXON MICRO miller FF 500/CNC.
For perfect 3D processing!

For individual parts and small series production. For manufacturing divisions, gear wheels, helical gearings, screw spindles and (including irregular) profiles. All angle positions can be approached by computer control. Easy horizontal and vertical construction. Driven by powerful step motor (2.0A) through toothed belts, and virtually free from play, adjustable worm gear. The high transfer ratio (40:1) provides enormous torque. Main spindle with 14mm drill hole and flange to suit face plates and all lathe chucks from the PD 400 lathe system. Smallest increment 0.003. Recognition of reference position through light barrier.

Chuck and work pieces are not included in the package.

NO 24 423

The 4th axis is implemented in the MICRO miller FF 500/CNC software as standard. The control unit (hardware side) is only equipped with the necessary driver stage as of serial no. 223-Frsen.

MICROMOT adapter

For the use of high-speed MICROMOT rotary tools.

In combination with the MICRO miller FF 500. And especially for use with the MICRO miller FF 500/CNC. The standard milling head is exchanged for the adapter in just a few steps. Our 20mm collar enables to fasten all appliances of the MICROMOT 50 series, the MICROMOT precision drill/ grinder FBS 240/E and the MICROMOT professional drill/grinder IBS/E. Especially for applications that require high speeds for small milling cutters (e.g. milling electronic boards), but also for micro drilling. Complete with fastening screws.

The professional drill/grinder depicted here is not included.
