Elha will be showcasing the further development of a longstanding production module concept in the form of their new FM3+X SRR module with drum-type turret (SRR) technology at the EMO Hannover 2017. As the company explains, the technology deployed has several advantages, for instance that the tools can be exchanged easily and conveniently from outside. There is space for up to four SRR units in the production module, in two-, three- or even four-spindle machining configuration. The octagonal shape offers eight positions on each turret for different cutting tools in HSK-A63 format, with HSK-A100 as an option, which allows a total number of 32 different tools as a maximum per machine. Irrespective of the number and type of turret, each tool is driven by a separate, water-cooled direct drive with 29 kW and maximally 16,000 rpm. Another highlight is the possibility of a fast change of the work fixture through a special quick-change system. Moreover, the technology can also be combined with fixed multi-spindle units for large-diameter tools, for example, which allows a customized configuration.
