One exhibit will be the TM70H Duo, a horizontal machining center with two spindles. Since multiple parts can be machined simultaneously, productivity is effectively enhanced, as the manufacturers point out. The two spindles can be driven independently of each other and it is possible to compensate each X, Y and Z axis individually. The bed-less machining center is billed as a pioneering invention that does away with the need for a traditional machine base. It is reportedly characterized by high precision, high efficiency, and a space-saving design. The exhibitors also announce the development of an innovative cutting method based on their energy-saving technology iMQL (internal Minimum Quantity Lubrication) that is claimed to achieve a high chip discharge rate.
New developments in innovative machine technology
Horkos, a Japanese company that has focused on the development of machining centers, transfer machines and mass production processing lines, will be showcasing their new machining centers and machining technology at the EMO Hannover 2017.
