Following a successful week at EMO 2019 in September, from the 1st October we will be welcoming four new machines to the line-up at our European Technology Centre in Worcester.
The first is the INTEGREX e-1250V/8S AG. It is the specialist gear cutting version of the INTEGREX e-1250V/8 range of high rigidity vertical Multi-Tasking machines specially designed for large workpieces up to Ø1,500 mm x 1,600 mm in height. The AG series, which stands for Auto Gear, are high specification machines with specialist hardware, unique software and metrology which, in combination, produce highly accurate gears compared to conventional CNC machining. The machine features a 40kW 500 rpm main spindle along with a 10,000 rpm milling spindle and is capable of rapid traverse rates of 42m/min in the X-, Y- and Z-axes.
Also on display will be the INTEGREX i-300S AM, which utilises a world-leading additive manufacturing system, in combination with a Multi-Tasking machining centre, to deliver a true DONE-IN-ONE solution combining both subtractive and additive manufacturing techniques.
The third new machine will be the INTEGREX i-450H ST. Featuring a twelve-inch chuck and an enlarged 300 mm Y-axis stroke enabling it to handle large complex workpieces up to Ø670 mm, it also comes equipped with a powerful 3,300 rpm, 37 kW main spindle and 4,000 rpm second spindle.
The INTEGREX i-450H ST will also be integrated with a highly flexible automation cell designed to maximise Multi-Tasking capability in unmanned production of complex and varied workpieces. The highly innovative cell features an articulated robot with five different stocker carts housing robot hands, chuck jaws, tooling, shaft and chuck workpieces.
The final new machine for October will be the QTG-50 SG, Mazak’s gang-tooling CNC turning centre complete with the integrated Robo-Cell automation system. Allowing for the high-efficiency machining of high-precision small components across multiple sectors, the design of its high-speed, high-accuracy integral spindle delivers more power to the tool tip. The compact Robo-Cell features Direct Robot Control providing teachingless operation easy setup
