EASTEC 2013: Modular Multitasking Turning Center
The new S-10 multitasking turning center features two turrets with 8 or 12 stations each, one main spindle and an optional subspindle for simultaneous machining in one loading. The S-10 features improved ergonomic design in which the main spindle faces the operator; higher productivity with twin turrets; and a choice of gantry loading (shown), bar-feeding, or manual loading. Parts are chucked in the main spindle, which provides standard turning, indexing for multiside milling, drilling, bring and threading. Im coordination with the C axis, each turret is independently capable of simultaneous three-axis motion for continuous motion contour milling. Miling/drilling heads are offered in high-torque X-axis and Z-axis version, which approch the work from perpendicular planes. An angular drill head uses the turret’s multiaxis motion to drill holes at angles ranging from 8 to 35° from the primary machine axes.
