Dual-Spindle Machining Center Includes Automation Features
Eastec 2019: On display will be Emag’s VL 3 Duo, a multi-spindle machine for the high-production manufacturing of chucked parts up to 6 inches in diameter.
On display will be Emag’s VL 3 Duo, a multi-spindle machine for the high-production manufacturing of chucked parts up to 6 inches in diameter. It is equipped with two separate machining areas, which shortens cycle and setup times.
The machine integrates all of the most recent of Emag’s machine developments, including self-loading spindle, the TrackMotion automation system and modular machine design. The TransLift system is responsible for the complete transport of parts, taking care of loading and unloading as well as part change between operations. With these features, the VL 3 Duo is said to be ideal for high production while maintaining a minimum footprint.
Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
Milling complex forms in hardened tool steel involves more than just fast, light cuts, says this maker of medical-related injection molds. Here are some of the ingredients of an effective hard milling process.
