Two 5-Axis Systems in One Machine

Esslingen-based machine manufacturer INDEX has combined two complete 5-axis machining systems in its R300 turning/milling center. In two independent sub-systems, one motorized milling spindle and one assigned work spindle are able to completely machine complex parts, in particular short bars and chuck parts with clamping device diameters up to 315 mm, simultaneously, providing extreme productivity…

Creep-Feed-, Profile- and HEDG-grinding with the MICRON machine range

They are space-saving, compact designed, combining rigidity and dynamic with high-precision accuracy. The machine type “Macro-S”, for example, has a width of only 1500mm but all the properties to perform efficient profile-grinding operations. MICRON – machines are fitted with high-precision linear guides, ball screws and digital servo-drives on all axes. The modern Siemens 840D CNC…

TRAUB Automatic Turning – Quick, Accurate and Efficient

With the CNC automatic lathe TNK42, developed for high productivity and precision, TRAUB GmbH & Co. KG replaces the previous TRAUB TNK36, extending the successful CNC sliding/fixed headstock automatic lathes of the TNL18 and TNL32 series with a fixed headstock lathe in the larger diameter range. The user-friendly production control TRAUB TX8i-s and the use…

The AC 700-F: high-precision double-sided precision grinding in a new design

However, it also features new technical refinements “under the bonnet”. The AC 700-F double-sided precision grinding machine from PETER WOLTERS has proven its worth in use with renowned customers all over the world, and is now presented in a completely new design. The innovative design line with its striking surfaces, new colours and conspicuous shapes gives…

Press deburring with new hobbing machine LCH 180 two

Continual loading and press deburring occur in parallel during machining time. Separate machine operations take place on two machine tables, each able to swivel 180 degrees and easily accessible: roughing in two phases, pressing, and finishing. After the blank is locked in and tightened, it is swivelled and the first cut of the gear takes…

New LC 180 hobbing machine combines high chamfer quality with one-cut machining

After hobbing with the usual one-cut strategy, the Chamfer Cut tool additionally generates precise and reproducible chamfers, that are increasingly demanded by the market. The newly developed solution eliminates the former main disadvantage of Chamfer Cut, namely that the chamfering process prolongs machining time. In the past, hobbing and chamfering took too much time at…
