SCM pratix N15 vs. morbidelli universal36156/9
Looking at a new scm pratix N15 or morbidelli universal 3615. the sales people tell me the machines are exactly the same except for the drill block. does anybody have any knowledge of this? how do these machines compare to the Buselatto Jet Optima RT?
I've been to the factory and saw both brands under the same roof being assembled. That doesn't necessarily mean they are the same though. I have bought and used SCM, Morbidelli, and Busellato. Both the SCM and Morbidelli's performed well multiple shifts for years. Busellato came in a distant 3rd in terms of control software, maintenance costs, downtime, and repair costs. On the upside, the dealer had most of the stuff on the shelf ready to sell. This is my experience only and all of it first hand.
I believe Morbidelli back in the day were considered heavier duty machines over SCM although nowadays I am unsure.
The drill blocks for Busellato and Biesse are built by the same company in Italy, HSD.
Drill blocks are considered replacement items on newer machines and could cost as much as 15,000.
I have had only Busellato's for the last 15 years and they have served me very well, service is outstanding and their software is TPA driven which is VERY desirable.
I have a friend with an 8 year old Morbidelli and he's also had good luck with his
Whatever machine you buy, I would recommend reducing your Drill Block RPM to a maximum speed of 3200 rpm, some routers are set to run much higher which greatly reduces their service life.
The morbi is 25% faster than the n15 and it has a larger boring block. The cells are different as well.
