Single-Machine Milling and Turning System

The new Mikron MILL P 800 U ST (Simultaneous Turning) machine from GF Machining Solutions performs both milling and turning operations for enhanced productivity, accuracy and cost effectiveness. The ability to fully machine components on a single machine also eliminates transfer-related part errors and the occurrence of stacked tolerances to further boost finished part quality.

The MILL P 800 U ST is capable of 4-axis simultaneous turning, which is especially beneficial when cutting tools must be positioned at 90° angles to workpiece surfaces to avoid tool shape errors. For milling, the machine incorporates a 20,000 RPM HSK T63 Step Tec HPC190 spindle.

The compact MILL P 800 U ST provides 31.5" (800 mm) of X-axis travel, 800 RPM C-axis rotation speed and a maximum table load of 1,763 lbs. (800 kg). Water-cooled high-torque motors on the machine's A-axis and C-axis help ensure accuracy and stability, while a 0.3-second clamp time in any position further contributes to overall part processing speed.

GF Machining Solutions developed the MILL P 800 U ST with its gantry-type concept as a direct response to the needs of shops serving the automotive, aerospace, energy and general machining industries. The machine's small 137" x 118" footprint makes it easy to integrate into existing operations, replacing two machines in the process. With the new machine's gantry concept, workpieces on the 31.5" x 31.5" table are fully accessible without rotating the table. This eliminates errors related to table rotation and helps reduce the need for hand polishing part surfaces. The tool changer for the machine is also located so as to avoid having to move the table during tool changes.

GF Machining Solutions' Machine and Spindle Protection (MSP) system protects the machine and spindle in the event of crashes during set-up and/or machining. MSP eliminates not only spindle damage, but also misaligned machine geometry as well as downtime and costs related to unexpected crashes.

The MILL P 800 U ST is automation ready and equipped with pallet changers for two, seven, nine or 12 pallets. It also easily integrates into existing automation systems, such as System 3R automation solutions.
