Dual-Station Transfer System Machines on Six Faces in One Setup

Mikron’s Ideo 2 dual-station transfer machining system is designed for the execution of complex geometric machining on six faces in a single clamping.

Mikron’s Ideo 2 dual-station transfer machining system is designed for the execution of complex geometric machining on six faces in a single clamping. The machine handles workpieces in materials such as steel, brass, casting or aluminum as large as 250 × 250 × 250 mm. The two stations each have their own individual spindles, enabling not only complete machining on six faces, but also double machining for increased productivity in parallel machining.

The machine’s clamping device is intended to be universally applicable, comprising two fixture jaws that open and close automatically. This system can perform multiple clamping, and positioning precision is ensured by an infrared probe.

The spindles are capable of machining at high speeds, offering as much as 33 kW of power to reach 14,000 rpm. Two tool magazines, located above the machining area, provide a 32-tool capacity each. The HSK-A 63 toolholder includes through-spindle coolant capability.

The Ideo 2 uses the FANUC 31i control with two channels. This setup enables two simultaneous five-axis machining operations.
