Following our successful EMO Encore Open House earlier this month, we will continue to showcase a number of innovative machines and technology at our European Technology Centre in Worcester.
This includes the new UK-made CV5-500 fully simultaneous 5-axis machining centre, which was the star of the show. Developed for small workshop machine users engaged in or aspiring to 5-axis machining, it has a high-rigidity bridge construction and fully supported trunnion table, enabling accurate machining from an extremely compact footprint. The CV5-500 is well-suited to a wide range of materials, and features a 12,000 rpm spindle which can deliver a peak performance of 18.5 kW and 119.4 Nm. It is equipped with SmoothX CNC, and can be easily automated with a side-loading door and robot interface.
Standout machines from our new INTEGREX i-H Series, the i-200H ST and i-450H ST, will also continue to be displayed. As the latest additions to our flagship Multi-Tasking machine range, the series incorporates Ken Okuyama KOD design to enhance ease of operation, automation and ergonomics, while combining reduced floorspace and increased working capacity. The INTEGREX i-200H ST is equipped with a second spindle, newly designed lower turret and multiple turning and milling spindle specifications.
Both machines are equipped with SmoothAi CNC, a new artificial intelligence control. SmoothAi combines digital twinning, automation and artificial intelligence, allowing the machine to learn from information sources such as the operator, previous cutting process and environmental data input. This delivers reduced cycle times and improved cutting surfaces, while enabling easier operation and automation.
Specialist gear cutting machines from EMO Encore will also remain at the ETC this month, with the new INTEGREX e-1250 V/8S AG sure to catch the eye. The AG series, which stands for Auto Gear, are high-specification machines with specialist hardware, unique software and metrology that produce highly accurate gears compared to conventional CNC machining. These machines use INTEGREX AG Software, which includes three SMOOTH Gear Cutting Solutions – Smooth Gear Skiving, Smooth Gear Hobbing and Smooth Gear Milling, enabling easy programming by conversational input of gear data in under 10 minutes, with no need for 3D models or CADCAM software.
Finally, the OPTIPLEX 3015 FIBER III, the laser processing highlight EMO Encore will continue to feature at the ETC. The OPTIPLEX is equipped with an 8.0 kW fiber laser ideal for cutting thick materials like stainless steel and aluminium, and its powerful resonator and machine acceleration make it equally suited to cutting thin worksheets. Ease of operation and the optimum machine efficiency is also ensured through its advanced Multi-Control Torch and Intelligent Functions
