Weingärtner’s Pick Up 400 turning and milling center is designed for the manufacture of complex screw geometries such as extrusion and feed screws. A workpiece clamping concept consisting of prismatic steady pads, headstock and tailstock combined with turning and milling capability enable the machine to machine extrusion and feed screws complete. The Pick Up 400 is available as a pure milling machine or turn-mill with and without tool magazine.

The machine is intended to be used with the company’s WeinCAD software for screw production. Operators can use their existing program data for production in a streamlined process.

Additional features include a fully enclosed working space with emulsion fog extraction and barrier-free access to the workpiece, automatic protective doors, and a control terminal that can be moved, rotated, and height-adjusted across the entire length of the machine.

  • Why Y-Axis For Turn/Mill Machines?

    Live tooling on turning centers greatly expands multiple processing capability. With the addition of Y-axis, turning and machining process integration takes a significant step further. Here's how the technology works.

    This complex milling operation is performed effectively on a machine that does turning.

  • B-Axis Turn/Mills Have Their Place

    The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.
