The CNC milling machines of the W2 series give you new freedom when milling 2D and 3D shapes from flexible foams (PE, PP and PUR), as well as wood, Dibond, plastic, acrylic, PVC, CFRP and GFRP, but also Styrofoam (EPS) and Styrodur (XPS).
In addition to a powerful spindle with an optional tool changer, the machines of this series also have a permanently installed oscillating knife. Now you can not only mill, but also cut with an oscillating knife without interruption. The W2 series is therefore recommended as a flexible production machine for all foam processors, packaging specialists and insulation producers.
We recommand the W2 series machines to commercial users and packaging companies with a flexible production.

The W2 series is a professional machine. With its sturdy machine table made of welded and subsequently hardened steel profiles it appeals to craft and industrial users. She cuts a wide variety of materials with its powerfull 7.0 kW or even 9.0 kW spindle, such as wood, foam, fiberglas, CFK as well as Styrofoam (EPS), Styrodur and much more. The W2-Serie can be found in the production of furniture makers and upholsterers as well as that of manufacturers of insulation materials and packaging.
The W2-Serie stands for quality made in Germany. Each machine is assembled, adjusted and extensively tested by us by hand. This is the only way we can be sure that all machines work reliable and deliver the required performance for a long time.
With its stable machine table made of welded and then hardened steel profiles, the W2 series is a production machine. Its equipment features appeal to commercial and industrial users.
Thanks to the powerful 750W servo motors, the axes reach speeds of up to 40m / min. Thanks to the integrated T-slot table, the workpiece can be fixed well and does not slip during milling. Lighter or very open-pore materials can be clamped or taped with double-sided adhesive tape.
Instead of the T-slot table, this machine series can also be equipped with a vacuum table.
All machines of this series are equipped with a robust 7.0kW milling spindle with 18.000rpm. These spindles are air-cooled. Optionally, this series can also be equipped with a 9.0kW spindle with 24,000 rpm. The matching frequency converter with 11.0kW allows safe and low-wear operation.
All machines within this series are equipped by standard with a pneumatic oscillating Knife (POT).
The function of such a knife is very simple. The knife is moved up and down very quickly with compressed air while a servo motor rotates the cutting knife in the cutting direction. Such a tangential knife is first choice for extrem precise cuts in various materials, such as sealing materials, cardboard, leather, cork, foam and much more. The knife cuts precisely and fast.
Knives with a thickness of 1.5 mm can be used to cut materials with a thickness of up to 120 mm. Various materaials can be cut just by choosing the right oscillating knives.
With the integrated vacuum table, workpieces can be clamped quickly and easily. Lighter or very open-pore materials can be clamped or taped with double-sided adhesive tape.
The high-quality drive components, guides and drives of the W2 series ensure that the machine functions reliably and has a long service life. We equip these machines with powerful 750W servomotors on all axes as standard. This is the only way to achieve high milling speeds with maximum precision.
This W2 series has high quality linear guides installed on all axes. The bed of the guides are milled flat, precisely measured and aligned. On the main axes (X / Y), the helical racks convert the rotational movement of the servomotors into linear movement. On the vertical axis (Z), a generously dimensioned recirculating ball screw ensures that the milling spindle moves precisely up and down.
The W2-Serie series is delivered with our self-developed 3-axis CNC industrial control.
The servo control can be loaded with up to 750W per motor.
Our machines are complete, everything is included, even the machine software and reliable LAN controller for all current Windows versions. The screen of the software was designed and optimized for milling with 3 axes and extensively tested in practice. You can be sure that everything will work immediately.
All you need is a Windows computer or laptop with one Free LAN connection and about 10 minutes to install everything. It couldn't be easier.
The machines of the W2-Serie series can be expanded with the following accessories. This makes the machines plug and play and you can be sure that your machine will deliver the required performance again and again.
An automatic tool changer (ATC) with 10 holders can be ordered as an option. The change process takes place directly from the magazine into the spindle (pick-up changer).
The content of delivery of the automatic tool changer includes an even more powerful, air-cooled spindle with 9.0 kW and 24,000 rpm.
Milling is a mechanical process that inevitably involves noise and dusts. Therefore, please comply to the regulations for hearing and respiratory protection when operating a milling machine. We recommend to permanently suck off the milling dust. The W2 series built-in and supplied spindle suction has a 100mm standard connection. You can use these connections to connect the machine to an existing central suction system or any stationary bag suction system.
A powerful vacuum pump is required for the vacuum table. The power depends on the size of the Vacuum table and the material to be used. The vacuum pump is a side channel compressor and impresses with its simple installation, quiet operation and long lifetime. The vacuum pump is turned on and off by the machine software.
According to the federal occupational safety regulations, these kinds of machines do require a certain set of safety measures to protect the workers and operators. Depending on the place and country of installation different regulations may apply. The protective fence in combination with an access control system effectively prevents accidental contact with the rotating wire. We are happy to help you find the right protective fence and enclosure for your machine
Order your machine with a Windows PC optimized for CNC cutting. The package includes: Windows PC, TFT monitor, keyboard and mouse. The required machine software is already installed and configured. The package is plug and play.
Expand the machine with a barcode scanner. The barcode add-on module makes operation child's play. Load the order-related cutting file directly into the machine software using the scanner. This voids errors and production is even faster.
Various CAM programs are available for creating your 2D and 3D cutting data. We would be happy to advise you.
The W2-Serie is a very powerful and high performance fast wire cutting machine for the commercial production. This machine will be fully tested, inspected first and then packaged for delivery. The montage and start up can either be done by the customer themselves or, for a small surcharge, they will have the option to call out one of our technicians, who will be able to set them up and get them running within a few hours. The standard equipment contains the following components:
In addition to many advantages, the design of the W2-series also has its limits. Unfortunately, our W2 has to pass with larger tool lengths. For such cases we have developed the GK-series, which also has a 4th axis. And in case you also need a knife in addition to the spindle it might be worth taking a look at the W2 sisters.
The W2-series machines havee to be seen - preferably live and in action. So, why not schedule a visit with our team in our competence center in Ilmenau, Germany right now? You will be able to see for yourself just how advanced this development of our Milling machine is and how your production could benefit from it. This applies especially to those, who have already worked with previous models of fast wire cutting machines. The smooth collaboration between our powerful hardware and high performance software really is a sight worth savoring. You won't want to leave once you are here.
Our experienced and fully trained staff will gladly answer all your questions and show you in a live presentation what this W2-Serie is capable of. Why not write to us or simply give us a call right now!Contact
