FIAT Style Centre is a division of Fiat Group Automobiles that concentrates all the research and design activities of the Fiat, Lancia, Fiat Professional, Abarth and Maserati brands into one Style department. In July 2007, in an area inside Mirafiori complex (Turin) it had been inaugurated the “Officina 83”, the new Styling Centre headquarter, landmark for all of the Fiat Group Style activities.
In this facility Belotti S.p.A. has just installed and tested a new 5-axis machining center model MDL 8040 S for 1:1 mould and prototypes creation. The MDL is the ideal answer to the needs of the automotive leading industries and it is designed for large models milling, optimizing the processing times. The machining center is equipped with a 40 kW electrospindle and a birotative fork head patented by Belotti S.p.A. Thanks to its symmetric geometry, it allows a high rigidity and an excellent stability of the head for a high geometric precision during process. In addition, to increase the rigidity of the rotary axes, the head is equipped with a hydraulic and mechanical locking system which increases electrospindle performances during roughing.
The 5 axis machining center is also equipped with lateral suction grids which remove scraps and dust during milling. To optimize suction and cleaning of the work area, MDL series was also equipped with a perimeter enclosure with motorized upper roller shutter which allows a safe access to the working area accordingly to the rules in force. Fiat Style Centre, flagship of Italian design, entrusted the experience and capabilities of Belotti S.p.A. who proudly carried out this important project in order to fully meet the needs of such prestigious customer.
