Swiss-Type Turning Machines Improve Efficiency, Accuracy
IMTS 2018: Star CNC is displaying its Swiss-type turning machines for industrial applications, emphasizing machine performance, safety and ergonomic design.
Star CNC is featuring its range of Swiss-type turning machines for a variety of industrial applications, emphasizing machine performance, safety and ergonomic design. The machines are designed for high operational efficiency, simple and logical operation, flexibility, rigid machine construction, B-axis versatility, and Y-axis control for backworking. They produce complex parts in one operation with precision and accuracy, and machine parts from difficult cutting materials with ease and precision. The company’s motion control system optimizes operations and reduces idle machine time.
Combining a rotating tool with rotating work produces a machining operation that is distinct from standard turning or milling.
A multitasking (turnmill) machine that can mill a workpiece top and bottom at the same time has advantages for long, slender workpieces such as turbine blades, propellers and aerospace structural components. Includes video.
As demonstrated at this Cincinnati-area shop, machines that both mill and turn shine brightest when workpieces are massive.
