Modular Machine Platform offers Productivity, Flexibility

Mikron’s Multistep XT-200 combines the productivity of a transfer machine with the flexibility of a machining center.

Mikron’s Multistep XT-200 combines the productivity of a transfer machine with the flexibility of a machining center. The system consists of a loading and unloading module, and as many as four machining modules. The machining modules contain two working spindles, each of which can access a magazine disk with 18 tool slots with chip-to-chip change time of less than one sec. Workpieces with dimensions as large as 200 × 200 × 200 mm can be machined without the need for re-clamping, even when being transported between modules.

A range of measuring and monitoring systems, the clamping device with Erowa quick-change interface, the rigid design, and the stable B and C axes all promote precision, the company says. The system machines workpieces on five and a half sides in a single clamping. The entire process, including loading and unloading is fully automated.
