As the exhibitors explain, attention has focused on providing flexibility and the task in hand defines the machine. Among other examples, the X, Y and Z axes of the two-spindle machine can be corrected independently of one another. Four sizes and two types of drive offer options for high-speed machining and heavy-duty cutting. The number of spindles, the variable distance between them and the extendable tool magazine allow the machining of diverse workpiece dimensions and capacities. All models are available with a linear or ball screw drive and up to four working spindles. Five-axis simultaneous machining and workpiece feeding during primary processing time are feasible. According to the exhibitors, the machine bed filled with Hydropol is thermally stable and features outstanding damping capabilities. As a result, users should be able to enjoy the benefits of increased productivity, extended flexibility, high precision and energy efficiency.
The workpiece is the yardstick
With Fit-2-Part Samag has developed the modular construction kit for its multi-spindle horizontal machining centers consistently from the standpoint of the workpieces to be machined.
