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.
Accuracy is not just inherent to the machine—it also depends on how the machine is used. Try these techniques to let a new or existing CNC machining center achieve its potential precision.
Old-world craftsmanship combines with precision machining on a vertical machining center and Swiss-type lathe to produce some of the only U.S.-made mechanical wristwatch movements.
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
