Abstract

A reconfigurable machining center (1), which comprises: - a base structure (2) which extends longitudinally in a first direction (X), - a first movable crossmember (3) which is supported so that it can move with respect to the base structure (2) in the first direction (X) and is provided with an equipped machining head (4), - supporting elements for supporting the movable crossmember (3) on the base structure (2) so that it can move along the first direction (X), - a first leadscrew rack (5), integral with the base structure (2), which comprises a first helical circular toothed sector (51), the leadscrew rack (5) extending along the base structure (2) in a longitudinal direction parallel to the first direction (X) for the entire extension of the base structure in the first direction (X), - a first screw (6) rotationally coupled to the movable crossmember (3) by way of a moving assembly (7), the screw (6) engaging with the corresponding first leadscrew rack (5), the screw having its rotation axis parallel to the first direction (X), wherein the longitudinal extension of the base structure (2) in the first direction is an integer multiple of the pitch of tooth of the leadscrew racks (5), and wherein the base structure (2) further comprises elements for coupling (8) that are adapted to couple the base structure (2) to a following and/or preceding adjacent base structure (2') along the first direction (X).
