VENTURE PRODUCTION WORKSHOP MATERIAL HANDLING MACHINE
The Techno CNC Systems Venture Production work cell is designed with the high production cabinet shop in mind. The customer is able to streamline the material handling, CNC routing, and offloading operations, seamlessly and efficiently. The Techno CNC System is G-Code based and compatible with the most popular cabinet and closet design programs.
HOW IT WORKS
The Techno CNC Systems Venture Nesting work cell will automatically load a sheet from a pallet by way of a scissor lift located at the rear of the CNC machine and a movable gantry system equipped with suction cups. The material sheet is safely and accurately guided onto the CNC platform by the gantry using retractable guide rails and stops on the table. Once the sheet is placed, the operator turns on the vacuum hold down and starts the cut cycle for the CNC to execute. After the sheet is fully processed, it is then pushed off to a conveyor table at the front end while another sheet is simultaneously loaded from the rear of the machine again. During this whole process the residual dust, that is not picked up from the dust collector, is swept off the table and conveyor into various chutes keeping the work cell clear of dust and debris. Upon completion, the individual parts are labeled by the operator through an integrated barcode system. This facilitates clear identification of the finished parts for quick and easy assembly later on.
All frames are designed using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM software which analyze stresses applied to the frame’s structure, also known as Finite element analysis. This state-of-the-art leading edge technology assures the support foundation is structurally stable that will last the test of time. Each frame is stress relieved assuring long term stability in the frame structure mechanics.
The Venture Series ME4 Production work cell comes standard with a 12HP HSD high frequency automatic tool changer. This precision spindle requires no maintenance, uses industry standard ER collets and ISO 30 tool holders. Fully programmable speeds from 6000 to 24000 RPM, and comes complete with pneumatically retractable vacuum hood.
The hand-held pulse generator allows the operator to maneuver around when setting up tooling.
The Venture Series ME4 Production work cell uses precision Helical gear racks on the X- and Y-axes. The use of Helical precision rack n pinion assures smooth precision cutting at high feed rates. In addition, the method in which the racks are mounted help reduce maintenance.

Other configurations are available upon request.
DRIVE TRAIN ASSEMBLY
The XY Drives include a precision gearbox which is directly coupled to the Servo motor and pinion. This eliminates belt stretch inaccuracies assuring high-speed machining while the system positions the spindle accurately.
The Venture Production work cell includes an 8-position rotary carousel that moves with the machine while the gantry travels. The use of a carousel speeds up tool changes assuring faster cycle times increasing production capability.
The vacuum plenum table surface is multi-zoned which allows the operator to easily switch from full sheet processing to smaller part processing, (which requires a smaller segmented area). Zones can be turned off easily via control valves on the side of the machine
The New Venture Series Production work cell utilizes high-powered Yaskowa Digital Servo motors & powered by Delta Drives. These motors are brushless, therefore, requiring no regular maintenance, thus, reducing any maintenance downtime.
MATERIAL ALIGNMENT SYSTEM
Venture Series Model – ME4 Production work cell machine comes standard with a material alignment system. The material is centrally aligned with the machine’s origin assuring the operator does not have any intervention with realigning the machine’s start origin point
M.A.S. POP UP SIDE RAILS
The pop up side rails keep the previous routed nest uniform as the material is pushed onto the conveyor
SUCTION CUP LOAD SYSTEM
The rear suction cup load system attached to the Venture ME4 gantry can easily load a sheet on to the bed surface. As it loads, it automatically sweeps the deck clean of any debris assuring a clean scavenger board surface for maximum vacuum hold down as it processes each and every sheet.
REAR SCISSOR LIFT
The automation work cell includes a rear scissor lift which supports and raises the stack of material to the machine’s vacuum bed height, which is monitored with optical eye-sensing stack material height and machine bed surface.
Conveyor table is located at the front end of the machine.
AUTOMATIC LUBRICATION SYSTEM
System applies oil to the THK linear bearings and ballscrews automatically
CNC Windows-Based G-Code Interface is included with each Venture Series Production work cell machine and is an indispensable tool in any CNC Router application. It’s open architectural design accepts G-Code files from any industry standard CAD/CAM software package. The jogging buttons, speed controls and run displays are all visible on the main page. The intuitive single-screen design and functions are easy to use and remember. Customers that are new to automation find the Techno CNC Interface easy to learn and operate. Most are up and running in less than one day. Customers soon discover that just because the Techno CNC Interface is easy to use does not mean that it is not a comprehensive CNC program.
