CMS Balestrini—CMS Industries' brand, highly specialized in the production of machine tools for solid wood working.

In 1954 Renzo Balestrini founded his “workshop for the construction and repair of special woodworking machines”; he targeted his activity towards the research of innovative solutions in order to meet the requests of manufacturers of chairs, sofa frames and solid wood furniture. Consistently with CMS’ strong aptitude for woodworking special solutions, Balestrini became part of CMS Industries in 2011, thus widening the Group’s offer of high-quality machinery. The over 60-year-long know-how and field expertise, along with a deep knowledge of the customers’ needs, has led CMS Balestrini to the development of its most advanced generation of innovative machines which are now considered reference points for the industrial solid woodworking sector.

CMS Balestrini offers not only CNC machining centers but also tenoners, mortisers and profile shapers machines which serve the needs of several sectors, such as furnishing (doors, window and door frames, tables, chairs, staircases and garden furniture) gunstocks, musical instruments or sports equipment, funerary art, automotive and model-making.

Balestrini CUBE - overview

CMS' Balestrini series tackles the entire range of joint design concepts and provides high speed, high quality joinery solutions.

In this video, Balestrini's CUBE is shown in overview. The CUBE features two 5-axis working units working together in unison on the same part, executing their division of labor flawlessly, at high speed and fluidly.

The working heads each have 4 spindles which can be oriented in a 5-axis manner as required and carrying a variety of tools such as: saw blades, rabbeting blades, drills, etc. to cut and shape the end of the solid wood blank, machine slots, rabbets, drill holes, and a wide range of other functions.

  • This CUBE has a double table and works different parts on each table: a solid wood post on one table, and a prefinished frame part on the other.
  • CUBE loads itself, automatically re-positions the part in process during the cycle, as needed, and unloads the part when finished.
  • The work between the units is divided and distributed so that the various tasks are carried out at the same time, without delay or impeding one another. Work on all six surfaces takes place and when ready CUBE picks up the part from the clamping units, re-positions it to expose the surfaces to be work, and then re-clamps it to complete the remaining work.
  • The first table machines a solid wood post with various joints and operations being carried out on it. On the other table CUBE machines prefinished frame material carrying out a slotting operation, along with miter work and hole drilling on the ends. When one is done, the other side has already been automatically loaded and is ready for work to start there again.
  • The next part of the video shows Balestrini's special programming, anti-collision software, T-CAS, which has tested out the prior program before it ever went to CUBE. The software also is shown with its "on-screen" virtual machining and collision detection technology, which matches the machine's work "step-for-step".
  • CUBE is also shown machining the joinery for rails of various sorts, some with special angles and groups of holes, as well as machining the dowel as part of the angled joint, in high speed fashion, with automatic load/unload.
