Charlyrobot launches 3D mini-milling Charly4U


Charlyrobot of France is launching its new generation of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) mini-milling machines, for compact 3D milling, called Charly4U. Charlyrobot has been a leading manufacturer of milling machines for more than 20 years. The company has local partners in the UK but is looking for distributors in the Nordic Region. Charlyrobot will be showcasing its technology at the Euromold trade show in Frankfurt in early December 2004.

Thanks to Charly4U, Charlyrobot is strengthening its leading position in the mini-milling machine market. With more than 700 units sold and distributed each year, Charly4U is fast becoming a manufacturer’s reference and a logical choice in the field of compact CNC milling.

As the first machine in its industry segment to be based on a steel framework, the Charly4U provides excellent rigidity for the perfect machining of soft metals, such as aluminium or brass, as well as soft materials, such as plastics or resin. With a movement of 310mm x 220mm x 160mm, the Charly4U can be used for all 2D and 3D industrial applications in a range of areas, including cutting, engraving, re-machining, jewellery, modelling, electronics, moulds, prototypes, prototype tools, and industrial design, among others.

The new milling-machine developed by Charlyrobot is a multipurpose machine with a long list of options - high-frequency spindle 1.1Kw, engraving spindle with tracking nose, micro-lubrication, and servo-brushless drive. It is equipped with a standard tool sensor for easy, rapid and reliable origin positioning. Maintenance is reduced to its simplest form, with a suction connector on the ’Z’ axis as well as built-in lubrication of ball screws and guide shoes.

Charly4U is economical, easy to use with fine-machining processes, and has an innovative design. The Charlyrobot range also includes an A2 format: the Charly2U with a movement of 600mm x 420mm x 280mm.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
