LWN 100: Perfect for manufacturing EPS screwsAt this year‘s EMO, Leistritz Produktionstechnik GmbH will present a machinenovelty from its successful LWN series, amongst others.Hannover (June 21, 2017) – At the industry’s key event – the EMO 2017 in Hannover –German‐based Leistritz Produktionstechnik GmbH will introduce the LWN 100, a new machinespecifically for whirling EPS screws. “With this machine we meet the high requirementsof the automotive industry,“ says Klaus Theusner, Managing Director at LeistritzProduktionstechnik GmbH. “The degree of efficiency and quietness play a very importantrole in steering technology. They can only be achieved through highest profile accuracy andfinish quality of EPS screws.“LWN 100 advantagesThe greatest asset of the new and compact LWN 100 is its ability to whirl ready‐to‐installEPS screws. It achieves very high finish quality which optimally satisfies the latest steeringgeneration’s demands in terms of torque and noise characteristics. The whirling is a drymachining process. Not only does it bring enormous cost savings for the purchase and disposalof coolants and cutting fluids. Additionally, it is eco‐friendly and keeps the workingenvironment clean.The combination of a new digital control unit, a dynamic drive and a compact machine designresults in shorter cycle times. Thus, work pieces can be manufactured even more costeffectively.The new, high‐precision Leistritz whirling machine is therefore particularly adjustedto the high demands of series production, which in addition to a very good qualityrequire flexibility and economic processing times.“The LWN 100 even stands out when it comes to Industry 4.0 features“, says Theusner. “Byusing so‐called Smart Software Tools, the machine can easily be operated and integrated.“
