The EvoDeco single-spindle turning machine offers fully synchronous drives with acceleration/deceleration to reduce cycle times for parts that require a lot of stopping. The machine can be used with or without a guide bush.
The company also offers Almac milling machines and Esco by Tornos coil-fed turning machine lines. The complete Tornos/Almac product range includes horizontal milling machines with three or more axes, vertical milling machines, high speed machining centers and drilling machines.
Esco by Tornos turning centers accept coil stock in addition to barstock ranging to 12 mm in diameter. According to the company, coil stock requires less floor space and eliminates downtime caused by barstock change-over. It is also said to produce less scrap than barstock for parts in the Esco range. In Esco by Tornos machines, the cutting tools (mounted onto the spinning tool head) rotate around the material.
Robotic Cell Cuts Cycle Time, Improves Part Quality
Sew-Eurodrive Inc. worked with Okuma America’s authorized systems dealer, Gosiger Automation, to design an automated cell that includes an automatic, magazine bar feeder that loads 6-ft. lengths of barstock into the machine. The shop also switched to an Okuma twin spindle, twin turret turning center so all of the machining operations are completed in one setup, thus eliminating additional fixtures and operator intervention. The resultant system reduces cycle times and requires much less operator involvement. As a result, production time per part was more than cut in half – from about 5 minutes to 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
