                                                  Welcome to vhf!
                                                  It is a pleasure for me that you are inter-
                                                  ested in our engraving and milling systems.
                                                  You probably have already noticed the most
                                                  significant change of this new catalogue is-
                                                  sue: for the first time we have printed it fully
                                                  coloured. But this is by no means everything
                                                  that’s new – again we have improved many
                                                  system modules and integrated new ones.
                                                  A new module is for instance an optical work-
                                                  piece and register mark recognition with a
                                                  camera system. So the milled contours will
                                                  fit perfectly to a printed workpiece. Very in-
                                                  teresting for processing metal is the resource-
                                                  saving minimum quantity lubrication. And
                                                  everyone who attaches importance to a com-
                                                  pact and protected control computer will be

                                                  Often improvements have been made in the
                                                  details, but achieve great effects. As examples
                                                  we could name a cover for the automatic tool

                                                  loads or a pneumatic tangential cutting unit
                                                  which can cut also stronger materials.

n   Active Pro Line
                                                From 2005 on we have been offering all systems of the Active line also in a
                                                much more stable “Pro” version. This performance package has proven to
                                                be so successful that we have finally decided to offer just the Pro model in
                                                Here is a brief summary of its most important advantages: The drive units
                                                have become more powerful and precise by the use of high-revving motors
                                                with gearing. Two sliding carriages in x and y direction as well as an addition-
                                                ally doubled linear guide in x direction and a strengthened bridge construc-
                                                tion increase the rigidity of the whole system. See page 20 for more details.

n   Minimum Quantity Lubrication
                                                In addition to the already very economically working cooling and spraying
                                                unit, vhf now offers an electronically controlled minimum quantity lubrica-
                                                tion which reduces the required amount of lubricants to a few millilitres per
                                                hour. This lowers costs and workplace exposure and improves the quality of
                                                your workpieces at the same time.
                                                The primary goal of this kind of tool cooling is not to dissipate heat with cool-
                                                ing liquid, but to prevent the generation of heat by applicating the atomized
                                                spray directly onto the machining spot between cutting edge and workpiece.
                                                See also page 49.

n   Line Laser Unit
                                                You can now adjust your workpieces quickly and accurately with the help of
                                                laser beams. This adjustment is being made easy by two thin red lines which
                                                will be projected in a right angle onto the machine table.
                                                So a mechanical stopper won’t be necessary any longer. Moreover, such a
                                                stopper can probably interfere with the machining process. A decisive ad-
                                                vantage of this kind of workpiece alignment lies in the possibility of placing
                                                the workpieces at any position of the machine table. The two line lasers are
                                                mounted in an angle of 90 degrees at the bridge of the machine and so they
                                                change their position when the CAM system is moving. See also page 44.

n   Optical Workpiece Recognition
                                                This module – consisting of a CCD camera mounted at the z axis and appro-
                                                priate software – is used for an optical recognition of workpieces or register
                                                marks which are printed on them. The software independently aligns, scales,
                                                stretches or compresses the output graphics according to the captured posi-
                                                tion of the marks on the workpiece.
                                                This method is especially interesting when you want to cut or mill work-
                                                pieces which have already been printed. Alternatively, it is also possible to
                                                recognize the edges of the material when there can be/shall be no marks
                                                printed on the workpiece. See page 45 for further details.

                      vhf will be the right partner for you, too, if
                      you want to save your liquidity. We would
                      be glad to work out a leasing or financial
                      concept for a CAM system which is tailor-
                      made for your budget.
                      Especially leasing a CAM system has advan-
                      tages in the commercial sector: Your line
                      of credit remains untouched – so a leasing
                      contract does not have a negative effect
                      on the future engagement of your bank.
                      Moreover leasing rates are immediately
                      fully tax-deductible and remain constant
                      during the whole contract period. In most
                      cases, they can be financed directly from
                      your earned proceeds. And when the con-
                      tract period has ended, you can take over
                      the system for a defined residual value.

  Installation Service
When you order a new CAM system, it will
be delivered free of charge to Germany,
Austria and Switzerland. Friendly and com-
petent staff members will install the system
ready to use in your premises. For all other
countries we offer graded rates; within the
European Union, we only charge a well-
priced lump sum.
However, the service of vhf does not end
with the installation. In order to enable
you to start using your engraving and mill-
ing machine productively right away, you
will also get a comprehensive introduction
into the usage of the system. You will learn
about the operation of hard- and software
and about basic safety regulations. Addi-
tionally, you will get some tips and tricks
concerning the use of tools and materials.

System Modules                                            Basic Systems

These system modules are units which you can use
for assembling a complete system according to the
modular design principle. Such a CAM system can
exactly meet your specifications. All modules har-               Units
monize with each other so that you can choose from
any of the following four categories. You just start
your assembly with the basic system which has to be
equipped with different spindles, fixing devices and
further accessories.
                                                          Fixing Devices
We deliver the complete systems free domicile with-
in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Moreover, our
staff members will install and assemble your new
CAM system and give you an introduction so that
you can start using it productively already at the day
of delivery. You will also get a parts warranty for two     Accessories
full years on all systems.

  The first step to your new CAM system is to choose
  a basic system which consists of the mechanics and
  the CNC controller. You can choose from three model

          The systems of the Classic line are robust and
          highly precise. They cover the smaller and me-
          dium positioning ranges and are also available
          as pure table systems.

                                                                     1. Basic Systems
      n   The systems of the Premium line have been
          developed especially for challenging industrial
          applications. They distinguish themselves by a
          more stable construction and more powerful
          drive units.
      n   The Active Pro line is particularly suitable for
          sign making, but also for similar purposes. It of-
          fers the largest positioning ranges – and this at
          an extremely favourable price.
  It is common to all type series that they can be used
  for real 3D works. All systems may be extended with
  further vhf system modules. On top of that, every type
  series is available with numerous different positioning
  ranges and passage heights – so there will always be
  a system which has the optimum size for your applica-

          rotary current spindles – much power for great
          removal performance; they can also hold the
          biggest tool diameters

                                                                   2. Machining Units

          results with these precision spindles when you

      n   dot embossing unit – ideal for inscriptions in

          many materials can be processed quicker and in
          better quality.
  For selecting your suitable spindle, you can ask your-
  self two guiding questions. Of course, we would be
  glad to advise you in considering all relevant details.
  When should one choose a spindle with a high maxi-
  mum rotational speed? Usually you can follow for
  working on most kinds of plastics and non-ferrous met-
  als with smaller tool diameters (up to approximately
  8 mm) the principle “high rotational speed instead of
  high torque”. Here less force will act on the workpiece,
  this means an advantage of safety during the machin-
  ing process and smoother edges of cut. Furthermore
  you can process your workpieces at higher rates of
  And when should one choose a spindle with a high
  power output? A spindle with much force and torque
  is especially suitable when a high chip removal rate
  should be achieved using bigger tool diameters (from
  approximately 10 mm onwards) and when the work-
  pieces will be fixed solidly on the machine table.

Please note that you need for the dot embossing
unit a dry and oil-free compressed air sup-
ply which has to provide the unit with 8 bar in
continuous operation. Depending on the whole
equipment of your CAM system, it is possible to
choose between different types of compressors.
Several questions may lead you to the right mod-
el: how high is the consumption of blocking air,
is there a cooling/spraying unit or a pneumatic
tool change, how long are the hoses, what is the
maximum noise level of the compressor?

                                                For making soldering easier, the isolation
                                                channels can be broadened artificially with
                                                the so-called Blow Up function (very useful
                                                for SMD boards).

                                                                                      Very convenient for HF applications is the

                                                                                      So you will achieve true to original results

              For milling the outside or inside contours of special
            PCBs, Cenon automatically performs the appropriate
                                             tool radius correction.

                                                   You can label your PCBs with logos which
                                                     you can import from any DTP program.

Pneumatic Clamping Devices
n   Pneumatic clamping devices offer great advantages, especially for
    the serial production. These clamping devices consist of a moveable
    and a fixed clamping jaw and a lifting cylinder. In combination with
    the fixation bars, it is possible to fix workpieces of any size quickly and
    hold them reliably. The two models offered here differ mostly in their
    size and clamping force. On request, the pneumatic clamping devices
    may also be switched automatically by the controller electronics.

n   The vises can be fixed over the T-slots directly on the working table.
    They are available in two sizes and made of cast iron. Vises can be rec-
    ommended especially for fixing smaller workpieces or objects with a
    special form which cannot be fixed with other devices. They are also
    very well suitable if you want to process the narrow sides of objects.

Polystyrene Stripes, Self-adhesive
n   The polystyrene stripes (width: 40 mm each) will be fixed directly
    on the working table and can be trimmed by surface milling. The T
    slots of the working table remain accessible, however, so that your
    workpieces may also be fixed with the T slot fixing material. It is also
    possible to mount a vacuum table over the polystyrene surface.

Reducing Bushes
n   Reducing bushes are used to clamp tools with a smaller shank diam-
    eter into a bigger collet chuck. So it becomes for instance possible to
    clamp a tool with a shank diameter of 4 mm into a collet chuck with a
    diameter of 6 mm when you use the reducing bush RH-46. The reduc-
    ing bushes can be also used with the automatic tool change.

                   n   Especially systems of the Active line demand a lubrication of their
                       toothed racks from time to time. Linear guides which are not pro-
                       tected (e. g. those of the dust extraction unit) should be lubricated,
                       too. EP plus is a strongly penetrating lubricant with long-term effect
                       for high pressure loads. It has an excellent creep effect, cleans and is
                       dust and dirt repellent.

In addition to our CAM systems, we offer a full range of high-quality tools. Not only the long endurance and the sophisti-
cated cutting edge geometries, but also the short delivery time are arguments which support the choice of vhf tools. As we
always have about 20,000 tools on stock, it only happens rarely that you have to wait longer for your delivery. The cata-
logue provides a detailed description of each tool, including its respective fields of application and many tips and tricks. If
you order via our Online Shop (, the delivery will be even free of shipping expenses.
