Charlyrobot launches 3D mini-milling Charly4U

04.11.2004


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: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...

Im Focus: World record: Fastest 3-D tomographic images at BESSY II

The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...

Im Focus: A molecular switch may serve as new target point for cancer and diabetes therapies

If certain signaling cascades are misregulated, diseases like cancer, obesity and diabetes may occur. A mechanism recently discovered by scientists at the Leibniz- Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) in Berlin and at the University of Geneva has a crucial influence on such signaling cascades and may be an important key for the future development of therapies against these diseases. The results of the study have just been published in the prestigious scientific journal 'Molecular Cell'.

Cell growth and cell differentiation as well as the release and efficacy of hormones such as insulin depend on the presence of lipids. Lipids are small...
