CNC machining center EPICON 7235: the powerful all-purpose genius for any workshop
The EPICON 5-axis C-N-C opens up new horizons for your creativity.
Machining lengths of 3,680 to 7,280 millimeters in X-direction and a remilling dimension of 1,650 millimeters are achieved with all drills and units. The extreme machining height of true 300 millimeters from the top edge of the vacuum cups with a generous Z-stroke of 565 millimeters provides sufficient clearance even for complex workpieces.
The optimized design of the gantry bridge and the machine column provides the optimum basis for absolutely precise and perfectly milled workpieces and at the same time allows extreme acceleration and milling speeds.
In addition, there are high-precision servo direct drives, wear-free couplings and covered precision linear guides on which HOLZ-HER provides a 10-year warranty.

Machining head - optimized for practice
Drilling, sawing, cutting, grooving – the machining head on the EPICON series is equipped for multifunctional use and is perfect for rational production of simple and complex case parts in continuous operation.
The integrated and compact design makes this machining head a paragon for dynamic action, acceleration and positioning accuracy. Even in the basic equipment, the EPICON series offers a wide machining spectrum.
Highly flexible machining tables
Console table – the workpiece support for optimum work progress
Precise machining requires exact and secure positioning of the workpieces. For this purpose, the EPICON series is equipped with a console table. It offers maximum flexibility in all areas of machining; even workpieces with complicated shapes can be clamped quickly and easily.
- Solid consoles with single circuit vacuum system, six easily movable cross-members – with pneumatic clamping feature in X direction. Both right-handed and left-handed users can easily operate the consoles pneumatically at the touch of a button.
- Measuring tapes in the X direction for quickly positioning consoles, laser pointers for precise position of suction cups. Other consoles and suction cups available as options.
- 125 Millimeter high suction cups provide machining head with sufficient clearance on all sides.
- Moving stops, eccentric in hardened guide bushings. Stops can be lowered pneumatically.
- Four pneumatically operated charging aids can be raised and lowered to position heavy workpieces easily. Additional charging aids available as options.
- Two large surface pushbuttons for clamping.
- Additional processing fields for higher capacity (optional).
- Individually switchable vacuum zones prevent vacuum losses.
- High performance vacuum pumps – 100 m³/h.
Optional: Vacuum pumps for 140 m³/h and 250 m³/h.
SynchroDrive machine table
State-of-the-art production technology with up to 50 servo-axes
For high speed, precise and reliable suction cup positioning on workpieces with varying sizes:
- Optionally available with six to ten consoles and three or four suction cup assemblies per console
- Each console and each suction cup assembly has its own high precision servo-motor for positioning
- Up to 50 servo-axes on the SynchroDrive table are synchronized, controlled and positioned to reduce table set-up times to an absolute minimum while simultaneously ensuring exact positioning of the consoles and suction cups on the table
- Various suction cup sizes as well as special suction cups for solid wood and frame clamps adapt the SynchroDrive table to every application
Well-thought-through workpiece clamping
CNC machining centers are becoming ever more efficient with the use of intelligent software combined with proven technology. One-piece complete production is now the measure of all things. All parts must be produced to the highest quality standards and with all conceivable processes in a single pass. The concept of "more product capability" opens new horizons. In addition, CNC machining also ensures the resurrection of traditional woodworking joints. Where earlier manual methods involved high-cost processes and large tolerances, these days it's only a matter of a few clicks of the mouse and complex joints are created to the highest levels of precision. In this way, mortised frame doors and swallow-tailed connections are being rediscovered.
Variable system of matched suction cups and workpiece clamps for surface machining including straight and curved frame parts.
Intelligent solid wood machining
The EPICON series offers virtually unlimited possibilities for machining. Constructed for the most highly demanding work, the solid and well-thought-out construction of both machines represents the latest in modern and application-friendly industrial design.
The extreme machining lengths in the X direction make the console table on the CNC machining centers ideal for machining long parts such as components for stairs, winter gardens, etc. Even large door components can be machined in a highly efficient and trouble-free manner in pendular operation. With 1,650 mm in the Y direction as well as a Z stroke of 565 mm, the EPICON is perfectly equipped for individual and highly variable machining operations.
Plenty of space for all tools
The traveling disk tool changer with 18 or optionally 24 tool positions ensures short changeover times and maximum productivity. A special pick-up tool changer is available for saw blades with dia. up to 350 mm.
In addition, there is a 14-position pick-up linear changer for extensive tool equipment.
Innovative changeover units
Your advantage for high product quality
A variety of changeover units for highly varying applications is available for all machines in the EPICON series. These range from conventional multi-spindle machines, lock box and sawing units to special applications such as hollow cutting chisels and cutting units for machining foam materials, etc.
Angular slewing gears with angle display and central angle adjustment are available for precision angle cuts and holes.
Laser pointers as standard feature
Laser pointers for exact position of the suction cups or for tracing the workpiece contours, attached on the right and left sides of the machining head.
Contour laser – the complete positioning solution
Contour laser – projects entire workpiece contour and all required vacuum suction cups simultaneously as well as all console positions without limitation for number of lines to be projected.
Variable safety concepts
Operator safety has absolute priority. This is why the EPICON provides free selection between the extremely robust multiple field foot mat or proximity type light barriers.
Efficient vacuum technology
Extremely high performance, efficient vacuum pumps ensure workpiece is held securely. These low maintenance, dry-running pumps are also distinguished by their low noise emissions and extremely low maintenance requirements.
Moreover, our intelligent ECO VAC vacuum control uses a software program to ensure that the required vacuum power is always present when several pumps are used.
Flexible evacuation – programmable for eight positions
Fully automatic positioning in eight positions on machining head, for perfect adaptation of hood to workpiece height. This guarantees optimum evacuation of chips.
Mobile control panel
Ergonomic design of your workplace is of increasingly greater importance. HOLZ-HER offers a mobile control panel as a standard feature for all EPICON models. This control panel is equipped with a 21.5”, 16:9 Multi-touch screen offering perfect user convenience. The attached rollers allow the control panel to be positioned for optimum support of the working process.
