5-Axis Machining and Automation

GROB Systems will showcase the G-Series universal machining centers at IMTS 2016. Based on a horizontal machining center platform, these 5-axis machining centers are built for precision, low maintenance and for shops requiring accuracy.

A retractable spindle and swivel-rotary table help provide accessibility to the workpiece, even with long tools.

The highlight of GROB's booth will be the G350 - Generation 2. The new model has improved dynamics, faster tool changes and expanded tool magazine capacity. By redesigning the tool magazine, the overall width has been reduced from 2,450 mm (96.5") to 2,000 mm (79") for a compact footprint. The maximum part size is 600 mm in cylinder x 600 mm in height.

The mid-size G-550T will be shown with the turning option for parts up to 900 mm in cylinder (O35.4"). The table rotates at 800 RPM while compensating for uneven loads. Maximum part height is 730 mm (28.7"), and longest tool is 500 mm (19.6"). All G-Series models feature the GROB designed and built table with 225° of rotation in the A-axis, and continuous 360° in B-axis. It is possible to completely invert the table for upside-down machining while chips free-fall away from the part.

GROB also provides a range of automatic pallet-changers, automation systems and expanded tool magazines. GROB will show the new rotary pallet storage system (PSS-R), available in three sizes to accommodate five to 13 pallets (630 mm x 630 mm pallet size). The system can be integrated and retrofitted to existing machines.

All GROB machines are MTConnect compliant with an optional adapter.
