The DL-NCD is a Numerically-Controlled Door Light Cut-Out Machine equipped with AC servo control for all three axes of cutting, “X” (Length of the door), “Y” (width of the door), and “Z” (Depth into the face of the door). The “Z” axis servo control makes it simple to program for security locks where the face bore is machined to a precise depth and also allows the operator to reduce the plunge speed to minimize tearout in the bottom face when machining small diameter holes. When the DL-NCD is used as a drill, deburring on the bottom face may be required.
The machine is equipped with an automatic feed and width adjust system to automatically receive doors, position the door against the stop, clamp the door and start the machining sequence if the instructions have been downloaded. Length of door is measured via encoder to automatically enter length of unit for correct cut-out location.
The DL-NCD can process doors that vary in height from 66” to 96”, 12” to 42” in width and 1-3/4” in thickness. Minimum distance from edge of cutout to edge of door is 1-1/4” on both sides.
The 10hp direct drive high frequency spindle motor for cutting the door is equipped with an automatic tool changer and access to eight (8) additional tool holders placed in a fixture along the fixed side of the machine. Programs can call for an automatic tool change and RPM adjustment for wood, fiberglass or steel doors.
Individual door light patterns are created at the machine console, remotely using a standard PC and KvalCAM software (included), or imported via API/.cad import tool. The DL-NCD includes an industrial PC with a standard Ethernet connection for file transfer and library backup, as well as internet support and updates from Kval.
KvalCAM on the DL-NCD allows customers to create square and rectangular template files by simply creating the geometric shape at touch screen or on remote desktop and then saving to library or downloading direct to “que”. For more difficult shapes, such as ovals, KvalCAM allows operator to import .cad or .dxf files directly which in turn auto-generates the template. The machine will then reference all queued templates to automatically generate the gcode necessary for processing.
All DL-NCD installations require that the integrated PC computer has access to broadband internet for real-time diagnostics and firmware updates. On-board diagnostic programs allow the user to determine the source of operating errors and failures, even after they have occurred.
The onboard Kval control software is easy to use and always connected: on-demand support and optimizations can be delivered rapidly
The DL-NCD can hold up to eight different tools, enabling a wide variety of door cutting options and optimizing production time
