Flexible, Customizable Technologies at PMTS 2017



At PMTS 2017 in booth 1225, EXSYS Tool Inc. will showcase the benefits of the PRECIFLEX tooling system, high-precision pL LEHMANN rotary tables and high-quality EPPINGER gearboxes/custom gear-making services. PMTS 2017 will take place April 25-27 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, OH.

"PRECI-FLEX toolholders offer a fast, accurate and cost-effective solution for turning machine tooling changeovers," said a company spokesperson. "The modular system is the first tooling system on the market with a single base holder and multiple tooling adapters that use the ER collet pocket." The system's conical and flat face planar interface allow the use of either an adapter or a standard ER collet and enables collets, endmill holders, expanding collet chucks and shrink fit tooling to be mounted on a single base holder.

"Available in a range of sizes, PRECI-FLEX provides enhanced productivity and reliability, with every toolholder offering repeatability within five microns," said the spokesperson. "The system also virtually eliminates machine downtime and allows tooling adapters to be interchanged between fixed and rotary base holders for fast, economical machining."

The Swiss-manufactured pL LEHMANN 500 series of modular multi-axis rotary tables allow users to upgrade a vertical machining center to increase productivity without incurring the expense of a new machine. Adaptable to nearly any workpiece or production situation, the tables are available in four basic models that can be assembled into as many as 240 different configurations. More than 20 different clamping methods and behind-the-spindle accessories that include rotary unions, special clamping cylinders and angular position measuring systems further extend the system's adaptability.

The pL LEHMANN 500 Series of modular designed rotary tables encompasses four standard single 4th axis models. The EA 507 is the smallest size with a face diameter of 70 mm (3.00") and a spindle nose load capacity of approximately 240 lbs. Progressing in size and load capacity, there are the EA 510, 520 and 530 models, along with a high-speed EA 511 model that delivers double the RPM of the standard models.

Each of these table models can also be ganged together with multiple spindles/C axes next to one another. Beyond that, they can be configured as multiple axis systems that provide 180° A-axis tilt motion along with the C-axis rotation as on Lehmann's Series 500 T1- (Trunnion-style) and TF- (Cantilever-style) model.

EPPINGER offers BT (bevel torque) and BM (bevel maximum torque) compact spiral bevel gears that are designed to bring increased torque and efficiency to gear applications requiring a high degree of reliability and variability. The company also offers PE (planetary eco) and PP (planetary precision) planetary gearboxes for applications that require low backlash, high efficiency, shock resistance and a high torque-to-weight ratio.

BP (bevel planetary) planetary bevel gearboxes, also from EPPINGER, combine features of the company's BT (bevel torque) series bevel gearboxes with the prestages of its PE (planetary eco) planetary gearboxes, creating an innovative solution for various applications. HT-type hypoid gearboxes feature a compact, robust design suitable for both specific and highly dynamic applications. To round out its product portfolio, EPPINGER develops and manufactures cycloidal gearboxes. These compact, high-transmission gearboxes are suitable for tool machinery, automation and robotics.

"In terms of custom gear-making services, EPPINGER, with more than 20 years of experience, can develop and manufacture virtually any type of gear," said the spokesperson. The crown gear diameters can range from 0.4 mm to 330 mm, depending on the transmission ratio. Examples include professional quality high-performance bevel gearboxes as well as ring and pinion gear sets.
