Satellite technology

International patented technology of vibration assisted electric drilling machine.

The Satellite portable machines range proposed by A.E.I is available for drilling operations and presents the most advantageous power weight ratio of this products family. Thanks to their design, these machines include the two numerical axis necessary for a drilling operation (spindle and feed). Movements, including oscillations generation, are carried out using very high-performance electric motors and a direct drive specific patented architecture (patent AEI / A&M) with zero backlash.

Speed, feedrate and vibrations are fully programmable. Thanks to their exclusive architecture, REEL AEI machines are capable of automatically detecting multi-layers materials. Cutting parameters are constantly adapted in real time to layer change. This enables unrivaled performances for multi-layer drilling operations.

A complete range of tools is available to use the machine as a portable tool and in a light robot environment.

Spineo solution

Spineo is a compact effector equivalent to :

– An eletrospindle

– With integrated feed axis

– Equiped with a vibrant tool holder

Our Spineo technology is made with a Satellite achitecture and an additional piezo electric system. This patent is the result of CETIM, A&M and REEL AEI collaboration.

Industry 4.0

REEL AEI’s machines are industry 4.0-compatible. All data can be replaced. All data resulting from the operations are fully collected in real time and can be kept for traceability, and used for process optimisation : cutting tool life time, process duration, quality of the holes, …
