To respond to the requirements of the medical, dental, watchmaking, aerospace and micro-technology industries, Willemin-Macodel offers a range of precision, high-performance machining centers designed for complex parts and quality surface finishes. The company will showcase the capabilities of these models via machining demonstrations involving various types of components.
For turbine blades, the company offers the 518TB machining center. This machine is available in a five- or six-axis configuration and a full CAD/CAM solution. An auxiliary slide equipped with a tailstock, collet chuck or divider provides increased flexibility for blade support, the company says.
For complex, prismatic parts, the company says its 408S2 machine’s five simultaneous axes and high-dynamic, direct-drive double divider provide high performance.
For medical parts such as bonescrews, the company offers the 508MT and 508S machines. Available with six to eight axes, this machine features a three-position backworking device (counterspindle, vice and tailstock) and an automatic handling system. The high-dynamic 508S is equipped with five simultaneous axes and a Heidenhain CNC.
