The F-MT turn-mill combines both boring/milling and vertical turning technologies to enable users to manufacture complex components on a single machine. The machine is based on the company’s FL model and can be configured with one or multiple working stations, and with fixed and rotary tables usable for both milling and turning. In a single setup, it can complete all operations — turning, milling, boring, drilling and tapping — on intricate parts for industries such as aeronautical, energy and precision engineering.
The machine features a high-torque, direct-drive spindle motor with 32 kW of power and 6,000 rpm (900 Nm at S1) for high chip-removal capacity, low heat, minimum maintenance, reduced noise, and high precision and efficiency, the company says. It is equipped with an 80-station automatic tool changer, but alternative tool changer capacities also are available.
Also on display at the show will be the company’s FXR floor-type boring/milling center and TR milling center, as well as its Ram Balance, Accura Heads, Modular Quill and Easy Tools design concepts.
