Generation 2 Universal Machining Centers with Automation

GROB Systems, Inc. offers the G550 Generation 2 Universal Machining Center with automated solutions, such as the Rotary Pallet Storage System (PSS-R) for meeting the requirements of aerospace, medical and die/mold machining and more. GROB machining centers are made in the U.S.A. at the GROB Systems' 400,000-sq.-ft. full production facility in Ohio, and can include advanced automation solutions for increased productivity.

The G550 Generation 2 5-Axis Machining Center offers optimized milling performance for a broad range of part materials and is equipped with a Siemens 840D SL control, 16k RPM spindle and an HSK-A63 tool interface. The G550's machine concept includes a horizontal spindle position that permits the longest possible Z-travel path and optimum chip fall. The arrangement of three linear axes offers maximum stability by minimizing the distance between the guides and the machining point (TCP). The G550's tunnel concept allows the largest possible component to be swiveled and machined within the work area without collision-even with extremely long tools. Three linear and two rotary axes permit 5-sided machining, as well as 5-axis simultaneous interpolation, with a swivel range of 230° in the A-axis and 360° in the B-axis.

Available for integration with the G550, the PSS-R900 rotary pallet storage system is a modular system with three different level configurations that can store up to 13 pallets with sizes of 630 mm x 630 mm (24.8" x 24.8"), increasing machine utilization and productivity with longer unmanned periods. This system offers optimum entry into automated, highly efficient production with a small footprint. The PSS-R has a high storage capacity and offers an easily accessible set-up station next to the machine control panel, which can be rotated and locked. The system offers clamping on the external set-up station during automatic mode and is equipped with a double loading fork that enables fast pallet exchange.
