Vitap The Innovators of the Industry
VITAP GROOVING Machining Center
Vitap uses 3-dimensional solid modeling systems to design its working centers which are built with a mobile carriage and stationary basement. The carriage moves in a longitudinal direction with respect to the basement (Y axis) and supports a pair of mounts which determine the movement of the Z axes for the drill block and electrospindle. The infinite X axis is accomplished through a patented Double Dynamic clamp system which moves the panel back and forth through the machine. This configuration allows a remarkable reduction in the machine’s overall size and improves the machine’s performance and functionality.The basement and the beam are made of electrically welded steel and are ribbed and strengthened internally to guarantee maximum rigidity even under intense working.The structures undergo a thermally-controlled normalization cycle.
All phases of assembly undergo conformity checks according to special testing procedures. The alignment of all the linear guides is carried out using an electronic level guaranteeing straightness and parallelism tolerances to be within 0.02 mm per linear meter. On all machines, positioning precision and bi-directional repeatability of the axes is checked using an interferometer laser system. Bi-directional positioning precision is guaranteed within a tolerance of ±0.05 mm. An electrical test of the whole system is carried out on each machine according to CEI EN 60204-1 legislation.
LINEAR MOTION SYSTEMS
The X axis movement is obtained throught the use of the patented DDT or Double Dynamic Transport system. The system is composed of a two gripper system which are driven by two brushless motors. By using two grippers, material can be seamlessly and continuously moved along the X axis without interrupting the milling or channeling processes. The system also provides considerable stability of the piece as it is being milled. The use of a single clamp is also used in the case of a smaller piece where the use of both grippers is not feasible. The Movement of the grippers in the X and the carriage in the Y axis are by brushless motors driving eplcyclic reduction gear, rack and pinion with a high degree of precision. The mobile beam or carriage moves on high precision pre-loaded ball runner blocks and linear guides made of rectified and hardened steel. Ball runner blocks for all axis are equipped with a seal guaranteeing maximum protection from dirt and dust.
The GROOVE uses one strategically located dust extraction port to evacuate dust and debries away from the machining area to help maximize efficiency and maintain surface quality of the piece.
The machine is equipped with automatic Centralized 22 Point lubrication system with progressive distribution. The system has a single feeding point for the group of distributors, which send automatically and safely, an adequate volume of lubrication to each lubrication point. The system is fed with a cartridge-doser that utilizes a 2Kg grease cartridge LIKO EPO.
The machine is self contained and all working units are shielded from the operator from all four sides. Additional safety systems: push buttons for emergency stop, software and hardware to monitor the safety distance, check sensors for the air level.
The electrical cabinet is integrated in the right hand side of the machine base and is tested according to the strict international regulations (EN 60204).
TELE-SERVICE VIA INTERNET
Allows remote connection between the machine’s PC and Vitap's Authorized Service Center allowing direct intervention on the control for checking parameters of the whole machine, single programs and installation of eventual software updates. Internet access and connection is the responsibility of the customer.

GENESIS EVOLUTION SOFTWARE TRAINING
Online Software Training:
Online training avoids travel expenses and allows training sessions in shorter segments; especially effective for those familiar with Busellato software or any CAD or CNC programming software. We can offer up to 8 hours of online training in 2-hour minimum sessions. These online sessions are conducted by a qualified software trainer and offer the flexibilty of changing screens from trainer to trainee during the session.
