The increasing complexity of modern tool, die, mold and medical part designs call for a new level of 5-axis machine performance. The Makino D200Z 5-axis vertical machining center answers these challenges by combining the quickness of machine movements and accuracies with the latest software developments for high-precision, high-speed motion control. From roughing to high-speed finishing of multifaceted, contoured 3-D geometries, the D200Z boosts productivity with the most competitive processing capabilities for complex dies and molds typically found in the automotive, injection molding, packaging, medical and optical markets.
Makino is pleased to reveal the next-generation MAG3.EX 5-axis horizontal machining center, a proven machine platform updated with expanded capabilities for the processing of complex aluminum structural parts for the aerospace industry. With its speed, power and motion control enhancements, the new MAG3.EX provides aerospace manufacturers with the productivity necessary to exceed customer demands for costs, quality and lead-times.
The HS flex handling system marks the continuation of Hermle AG’s commitment, lasting almost 20 years, to the automation of its machining centres, with the company introducing a powerful, compact and extremely attractively priced automation tool onto the market. Despite not yet being marketed or presented, several units have already been sold, which clearly emphasises the economic benefits that automation represents.
Building on its highly successful PS-Series product line, Makino is excited to announce the next-generation PS65 and PS105 vertical machining centers. Both models feature enhanced design characteristics and next-generation technologies that expand upon the capabilities of their predecessors. With an ideal blend of power, accuracy, speed and reliability, the PS65 and PS105 are redefining the standard for vertical machining center productivity within the aerospace, medical, automotive and general manufacturing industries.
SEW Eurodrive of Lyman, S.C., first began looking into automated manufacturing systems during the late ’90s. The company sought automation as a means to enhance efficiency and competitiveness. SEW appointed a team to begin researching automation solutions to help improve productivity, growth, safety and quality of life for their employees.
