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: Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.

One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
