Independent Manufacturing Cell

Schwäbische Werkzeugmaschinen's (SW) BA 322i is designed to function as an independent manufacturing cell that can store enough workpieces for an entire shift. This twin-spindle horizontal machining center produces twice the output while using less floor space and less energy.

The BA W02 and BA 3 series are available with a loading module with an integrated 6-axis robot and vertical workpiece storage. SW's double swivel carrier enables loading and unloading in parallel to machining time. The vertical workpiece storage is conveniently located to the side and has been trimmed down to require minimal space. The new BA 3 series features the monobloc design in combination with the box-in-box 3-axis unit, double swivel carrier and one, two or four horizontal spindles with 300 mm spindle distance.

The new BA space3 was built with the EV market in mind. With a working range of 3,000 mm x 1,800 mm x 875 mm on the X-, Y- and Z-axes, it can accommodate large, light metal structural components.

The machine is available in two base variants: a 5-axis machining center with a 2-axis swivel head, or a 3-axis version with rigid spindle. The 2-axis swivel head variant enables machining from all angles while the rigid spindle version allows for straightforward correction in all axes for high flexibility and quality. The tool magazine for the BA space3 is a chain design with a capacity of 40 or 80 tools.

There are linear drives in all feed axes, meaning that not only can the BA space3 machine large workpieces, but it does so quickly. The C|one Control Panel is a multi-touch display that introduces Industry 4.0 seamlessly into the production line and creates a seamless user experience. SW Core software comes integrated and access is authorized via microchip.
