Maggi Technology, an Italian manufacturer, recently introduced the 21 Technology electronic boring machine to the U.S. market. The single-head boring machine offers quick and easy setup in under a minute, according to the company.
“This is the only multi-spindle boring machine of its category that’s 100 percent electric. It doesn’t need compressed air at all with electronic selection of the main functions through a user-friendly and reliable custom user interface made expressly for Maggi,” product manager Stefania Maggi says.
The touch-screen function allows users to select electronic head rotation from 0-90 degrees at any angle, drilling depth, height and speed adjustment and clamp-height adjustment.
The machine also features a programmable logic controller, “meaning that all mechanical movements are smooth, constant and controlled by software to deliver the greatest accuracy in operations,” Maggi says.
21 Technology was nominated for a new product Visionary Award at the 2015 AWFS fair in the machinery-under-$50,000 category.
