The DBF 1000 / 1250 enable complete machining in one clamping position, hence the name DBF (which stands for turning-drilling-milling in German) which has a decisive effect on the productivity of the overall production system. The working spindle of the DBF heads carries out all the machining on the tool that is attached. When turning is required on a clamped work piece, the rotating lathe tool can be radially shifted by ± 35 mm (servo-axis).
Balancing weights integrated in the head compensate for the imbalance set off by the balanced tools, which means that up to 1,200 rpm is possible for turning work.
For boring and milling, a 35/45 kW spindle achieves speeds of up to 3,500 rpm. The DBF 1000 / 1250 enables complete machining with a consistent axial and radial run-out of 5 - 6 µm on the part, which reduces the time and other effort required for clasping, temporary storage and new setting-up each time.
