FALCON - 4-Side Plate Edge Milling Machine

LINSINGER’s latest plate edge milling machine generation PFM FALCON enables edge preparation on all 4 sides
(2 longitudinal + 2 cross sides) of a plate in one clamping. Our proven “LINSINGER Thick Chip Milling Technology” ensures
high feed and output rates at lowest possible tooling cost.
Due to the gantry milling concept and the magnetic clamping units, highest flexibility is given and even complex
plate shapes such as trapezoidal and curved plates (e.g. for the vessel and wind tower industry) can be processed.
For non-magnetic and complex materials such as Stainless Steel, High alloyed steels, Duplex and Super-Duplex
grades, special clamping tables are available. Optional minimum quantity lubricant spray nozzles ensure economic
machining even of these materials.
The machine covers easily plates with wall thicknesses from 10mm up to 200mm (0,4 – 8”). The high-power reserves of the
machine ensure maximum torque of 6000 Nm and high feed rates even when heavy plates are milled. Various profile types
(N/V/X/Y/J) can be realized. The proven copying function of the milling unit ensures a constant web-flow along the plate edge,
even on heavily bent plates of high thickness.
