Description:
Vantage 33 M Core Technology
Machine Bed with S/C Tech® inside
Construction with S/C Tech®
The Vantage 33 M CNC Routers incorporate a vibration and impulse damping
technology that combines welded steel I-beam construction with a cast composite core.
The basic shape and strength of the machine comes from the steel main structure. The
composite core provides vibration damping characteristics similar to those of gray cast
iron. The rapid dissipation of induced and resonant vibrations assures high quality
machining of parts, improved tool life and extended machine life.
High Acceleration with S/C Tech®
The most important aspect of S/C Tech® is the high performance that may be achieved
with the Vantage 33 M. The Vantage 33 M acceleration rates are up to 7 times faster
than those of other machines. High speeds and high acceleration rates induce large
stresses on a machine. S/C Tech® permits the Vantage 33 M to operate more quickly,
efficiently and reliably than others in its class.
High Performance with S/C Tech®
High acceleration rates are very important in extending tool life and achieving consistent
cut quality at high machining speeds. The faster a machine accelerates, the sooner the
tool is operating at its rated feedrate and RPM. Long acceleration times translate into
more friction between the tool and the machined material. This friction quickly wears
out tooling.
Features molded into the S/C Tech® composite core enhance air flow and efficiency of
the vacuum hold-down system. Solid vacuum holding power is important for accurate
machining of parts and minimization of scrap.
S/C Tech® Means “State-of-the-art” Machine Design
The Vantage 33 M combines state-of-the-art machine design, construction and control
technologies to take Nested Based Manufacturing to a new level of productivity for the
small shop.

Weeke Vantage 33 M specs

Vantage 33 M Configuration
Working Table
The Vantage 33 M provides a work table size of 49”x 122”. This permits easy loading of
4x8 or 4x10 panels.
The worktable surface is a machined grid or matrix of high strength resin machined on a
high speed Weeke CNC router in the machining department of the Weeke factory.
Parts Location
The Vantage 33 M is equipped with pneumatic reference pins for single parts and full
sheet location. Four pins are located on the front left corner of the machine table for
referencing smaller single parts. Loading full sheets is simply a matter of pushing the
sheet to the location pins to the rear of the machine table.
Bridge
The Vantage 33 M bridge is a built-up weldment with engineered-in internal support
plates with superior, rigid support for Weeke’s innovative and flexible machining head
design. The bridge is driven by a pair of servomotors and hardened helical gears on a
pair of helical tracks and linear guides that provide maximum thrust and eliminate the
effects of backlash. The pair of servo motors is precisely and continuously synchronized
through the motion control software in the Vantage 33 M control system.
Routing System
The Vantage 33 M is fitted with a low maintenance 7.5/9kW electrospindle with ceramic
bearings. The tooling interface on the electrospindle is HSK-F63 standard. The spindle
is cooled with forced air from an independent electric fan.
Automatic Tool Changing
An 10-position tool magazine is located at the rightmost end of the machine. Eight
positions are dedicated to tool storage. One position holds a phantom tool used during
drilling operations. Another position called the Tool Pickup position is located toward
the front of the machine. This position is optically interlocked and is the site where the
operator loads tools that are then to be stored in any of the other eight tool positions.
Tools of up to 135mm in diameter may be accommodated by the system. Tool change
times are from 8 to 12 seconds from chip-to-chip depending upon the machine condition
at tool change time.
Drilling System
The Vantage 33 M incorporates Weeke’s unique 7500 RPM drilling block with integrated
locking mechanism. Weeke’s patented locking mechanism assures drilling depth even in
dense or inconsistent materials. The boring gear box is driven by a frequency controlled
2.7 kW motor which provides programmable drilling spindle speeds of 1500 to 7500
RPM to accommodate varieties of materials and boring bits.
The drilling head on the Vantage 33 M contains seven (7) vertical drilling spindles on
32mm centers for line drilling and drilling for other hardware.
Vacuum System
A 300 cuM/Hr vacuum pump from Becker is included with the Vantage 33 M. This
pump has proved to be a reliable component of the Weeke machines and provides a high
degree of flexibility for a variety of material types. The pump is wired directly to the
main machine power cabinet eliminating the need for separate electrical disconnect.
NOTE: The Vantage 33 M is not fitted with spoilboard material from the factory.
Spoilboards are consumables that must be acquired from local sources.
High Flow Dust Collection System
The machining head uses a large capacity dust collection hood. The hood dramatically
reduces the amount of dust remaining in the work area. Manually positioned air jets near
the main spindle serve to disturb dust so that it may be drawn up into the dust collection
system.
Hand Remote Unit
The Vantage Machines include an easy-to-use hand unit that permits the operator to
control feed speeds during parts machining. The unit may also be used to position the
machine in manual mode.
Machine Protection
Weeke’s attention to detail is evident in their selection of components and machine
preserving features. Weeke incorporates guide-way covers on all linear guides so that
abrasive materials will not prematurely damage bearings. This is especially important
when machining solid surface or MDF materials.
All cable tracks are fully enclosed to prevent damage from impact or wedged scrap.
Safety System
The Vantage 33 M includes Weeke’s light barrier system with full safety fence
surrounding the machine. Weeke adheres strictly to CE norms to protect the machine
operator.
Control System
Weeke has teamed-up with a leader in the PC-based industrial controls sector, Beckhoff
GmbH. Beckhoff has specialized in distributed controls, industrial controls and software
based on industry standard PC-hardware and operating systems. The Beckhoff control is
a software system that runs under the Windows XP-Embedded platform. This means that
machine control strategies not possible with traditional controllers may be achieved
easily with the Beckhoff architecture. The Beckhoff control communicates via fiberoptic
cables to SERCOS (international standard for high precision motion control) axis
drives from Rexroth/Indramat and distributed I/O components from Beckhoff.
Significant gains in performance and user friendliness have been direct results of the
strong partnership between Weeke, Beckhoff and Rexroth/Indramat.

    WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.

    Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).

    Libel:   Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.

    Improper Decorum:   Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).

    Advertising:   The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).

    Repeated Forum Abuse: Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.

    There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).

    The staff of WOODWEB assume no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted at WOODWEB's Message Boards. Participants should undertake the use of machinery, materials and methods discussed at WOODWEB's Message Boards after considerate evaluation, and at their own risk. WOODWEB reserves the right to delete any messages it deems inappropriate. (return to top)
