The SAMAG Group has been manufacturing machinery since 1873. Having started out as a small company called Auerbach & Scheibe, it is now a global group known best for its ability to adapt to customer requirements. Visitors to EMO Hannover 2017 can find out what all that means in real terms as they watch live demonstrations at the group's stand. SAMAG is showcasing examples from its MFZ mechanical engineering range, specifically two variants from the latest generation of MFZ multispindle machining centers - the MFZ 8.2 for heavy-duty machining and the MFZ 7.2. linear for machining aluminum with minimum quantity lubrication.
Like all the MFZ models, the two exhibits on show are available with either a linear drive or ballscrew drive, as a two-, three- or four-spindle machine, and as a four- or five-axis machine. The benefits of the highly dynamic linear drive lie in high feed speeds and enhanced precision, particularly during circular milling. The two-spindle MFZ 7.2 linear on show at EMO Hannover 2017 also comes in the widest range of variants available within the MFZ series. Thanks to its varying housing geometries, it can be tailored to a broad spectrum of customer requirements in terms of volumes and workpiece sizes, without having to select the next largest machine type. When it comes to the heavy-duty machining of steel and cast workpieces, the MFZ 8.2 is ideal. Visitors can witness the performance and efficiency of the machine in action at the fair, where it is fitted with an HSKA-100 spindle.
