Automation Options for Mill-Turn Centers



EMCO, jointly with automation partner Ultra Tech Machinery, Cuyahoga Falls, OH, has introduced an automated turning cell with an EMCO Hyperturn 45 mill-turn, a Renishaw Equator high speed flexible dimensional gauging system, a part handling system and a FANUC CR-35iA collaborative robot with 35 kg lift capacity. Because of the robot's highly sensitive contact sensing technology, it is safe to work around humans without guarding.

"The cell demonstrates the high degree of reliable automation that is available to any shop, reducing cycle times and production cost while improving production quality and consistency," said an EMCO spokesperson.

With high-performance main and counter spindles, two tool systems, a stable Y-axis, a thermo-symmetrical machine construction, compact dimensions and a range of intelligent automation solutions, the EMCO Maier Hyperturn 45 turning and milling center is geared for applications in automotive and general engineering.

A 3-axis portal in the machine permits convenient automated loading and unloading. "The machine system is a complete solution providing efficiency and economy, including measurement and can also include deburring and cleaning stations if required," said the spokesperson.

The machining cell includes an Ultra Tech three-drawer part handling system. Raw parts are loaded into 42-position trays on one side of the system; the drawer opens on the robot side of the system, and the robot removes raw parts, replacing finished parts in the drawer.

Even the basic version of the Hyperturn 45 offers a Y-axis with 70 mm traveling distance in the upper and a Z2-axis in the lower carriage system. The water-cooled main and counter spindle motors provide a higher drive power of 15 kW and feature a maximum speed of 7,000 RPM and higher torque of 100 Nm. The latest Siemens SINUMERIK 840D-sl control and drive system, the "Solution Line", makes programming the machine easy. A foldout PC keyboard is an ergonomic plus.
