All Eldorado deep hole drilling machines include a robust high-pressure coolant system, a PC-based control system, and various fixturing options to suit your needs. These machine systems are designed, engineered, and manufactured in-house for unsurpassed performance and reliability.
Eldorado high-pressure coolant systems are suitable for either oil or water-soluble coolants and feature a two-stage cartridge-type filtration process to remove the metal chips from the cutting fluid. Pressure switches on the filters indicate a clogged filter.
The temperature of the cutting fluid is controlled either by an air-cooled radiator or with a shell-and-tube heat exchanger utilizing water from the facility or Glycol from an external chiller unit. Coolant system parameters, such as coolant flow, temperature, and pressure, can be monitored and adjusted.
Eldorado machines use an embedded PC-based control system featuring Beckhoff Controls. This system emulates the typical PLC-based control while also providing features commonly associated with a PC.
The control panel features a touchscreen for easy menu navigation, and also large push buttons for added durability in a shop-floor environment. The control also features CNC G-Code programming, providing the ability to write your own gundrilling programs.
Beckhoff Controls use the Microsoft Windows® OS with built-in Ethernet capability. The system utilizes a solid-state disk drive instead of a typical PC magnetic hard drive, providing increased reliability in a production environment.
The control system also features a robust EtherCat communication technology for high-speed interface with the machine spindle and servo drive, resulting in dynamic performance of the servo system.
The Beckhoff Controls package is also available for control retrofits, either as a field installation or as part of a full factory machine rebuild.
To suit your application needs, we offer various workpiece handling options to accommodate different lengths and diameters of parts. Fixturing options include:
