Machining Centres

CNC Machining and Processing Centre for Woodworking (Homag)

Homag’s CNC machining and processing centre for woodworking is used to examine DC technology within a production machine. The CNC machining and processing centre for woodworking is a flexible CNC woodworking centre. This enables the complete production of large wood panels with more than 30 tools. It was selected for DC-INDUSTRIE because larger masses are accelerated and decelerated. In order to reduce the peak power requirement, a chemical energy storage system has been integrated.

Here too, direct comparison with AC technology is part of the investigations. An additional purpose is to observe the function of the energy management in a single machine.

Key Research Topics

  • DC micro grid in a single production machine
  • High precision servo drives from different manufacturers operating on a shared DC bus
  • High energy flow peaks from large accelerating and decelerating masses
  • Battery integration for lowering peak power demands
  • Comparison of energy balance between AC and DC technology
