United Grinding Technologies, Inc. announces the Stratos Series, the CNC multitasking center from Studer Schaudt.
The series offers a design that combines dual processing--turning and internal/external grinding--and integrated material handling in a single machine and a single setup. Up to four workstations allow turning and grinding bores, diameters and end faces in one clamping.
The number of workstations and workpiece size define each of the three models. The Stratos S is especially useful for rapid processing of large batches, has two workstations and machines workpieces up to 100 mm in diameter. Chuck diameters range from 125 mm to 210 mm. The Stratos M provides processing versatility with up to four workstations. Workpiece capacity is up to 150 mm, and chuck diameters range from 210 mm to 260 mm. The Stratos L has up to three workstations and handles workpieces up to 200 mm. Chuck diameters range from 260 mm to 320 mm.
