Education, FABLAB and R&D
As a supplier of industrial equipment, MECANUMERIC's CNC machines are used in the training of students in secondary schools, high schools and apprenticeships. They also integrate the numerous research processes within FABLABS and R&D departments.
Students and researchers can thus use CNC machines for THP waterjet cutting, the manufacture of 3D printing parts or the turning of parts for the creation of prototypes and small series, for example.
CNC machines for education and research
MECANUMERIC CNC machines are designed to facilitate the learning and handling of industrial tools by students. They are easy to use and their ergonomics have been studied so that the greatest number of students progress quickly.
They machine all types of parts such as engine mounts, siren housings and model car chassis. The performance of the CNC machines allows them to work on many materials (wood, aluminium, PVC, etc.) and also to use industrial 2D and 3D manufacturing tools.
At the forefront of innovation and technological developments, FABLABS and R&D departments are in need of industrial equipment to continue their work and put the results of their research into practice.
Very high pressure water jet cutting and additive 3D printing are used in many manufacturing processes. These processes are used on a daily basis for research in FABLABS and R&D departments.
Advanced technologies for CFAs, high schools, colleges, FABLABS and R&D departments
- THP waterjet cutting
THP (very high pressure) water jet cutting can be carried out by several CNC machines in the MECANUMERIC range, depending on the projects carried out by students in secondary schools and CFAs or researchers in FABLABS and R&D departments.
Indeed, CNC waterjet cutting machines are particularly suitable for soft materials thanks to the pure water cutting process (rubber, plastic, leather...) and for hard materials (metal, ceramics, glass...) thanks to the abrasive water cutting process.
LABJET industrial equipment is compact, safe, powerful and precise. It meets the most rigorous safety requirements for teaching in CFA and college while remaining within a controlled budget. The same applies to the new QUICKJET II waterjet cutting machine, which benefits from a combination of features such as ultra precision, safety and high productivity, making it unique on the market. It facilitates even more the research carried out in the FABLABS and R&D departments.
- Additive manufacturing - 3D printing
MECANUMERIC, an industrial equipment supplier, offers CNC machines for 3-axis digital milling. Students from colleges, CFA as well as researchers from FABLABS and R&D departments use CNC milling machines equipped with a 3D printer for the manufacture of numerous parts during their work and training.
Thus, the Charly4U/Charly2U 3-axis digital milling machines are designed for the additive manufacturing of parts via an easy-to-use 3D printing mini-module. The machining with this type of CNC machine is of high quality and finesse. It is possible to machine and mill many metals such as aluminium and brass.
- CNC turning
MECANUMERIC's Charly4T numerically controlled lathe is a popular industrial tool for colleges, high schools, CFAs and FABLABS. This technology combines simplicity and performance. Students and researchers appreciate being able to perform the main turning operations such as facing, turning, grooving, boring, threading or following complex profiles.
Charly4T also allows the turning of prototypes and small series. The performance of this industrial tooling is matched only by its ease of use and the perfection of the work carried out.
