Integration of diverse processes
Three spindles are installed in one machine. They enable a variety of machining from turning to drilling with power tools and flexible process configuration, such as 1-1-1, 1-1-2, 1-2-2 or 1-2-3 pattern.
Labor savings at setup changes
A self-loading configuration is adopted to move the
spindle directly to a traverse-type transfer device
for workpiece transfer. The transfer device has a workpiece turnover function, eliminating the turnover device between processes. The number of transfers between chucks is reduced, which also decreases the possibility of momentary stops, the number of setup changes, and setup man-hours.
Pursuing ease of maintenance and space savings
The inverted spindle is provided at the front of the
machine. The major mechanical parts, such as the turret, slides, and transfer device are also placed at the front of the machine to ensure ease of maintenance and space savings. In addition, oil mist lubrication is adopted for the spindle, simultaneously achieving high spindle speeds and long service life.
Proposal for total cost reduction
Three spindles and a turret are integrated into one machining chamber. The machine handles the processes equivalent to three machines, only with one coolant tank, oil controller, chip conveyor, mist collector, etc.
