EMCO presents the new MAXXTURN 45

EMCO – world leading company in development and manufacturing of high-tech machine tools for industrial use and training purposes, presents the new high-performance machining centre MAXXTURN 45: Compact. High performance. And top precision. Many EMCO customers have been waiting for it with baited breath. And many new customers are looking forward to getting to know EMCO’s new high-performance machining centre. Because just like its big sis-ters MAXXTURN 65, 95 and 110, the MAXXTURN 45 is also a well high perfect solution for low-cost com-plete machining off-the-rack.

Extremely stiff Y axis

Fitted with a counter spindle, driven tools, a high-precision C axis and very fast rapid-motion speeds, the MAXXTURN 45 offers everything the customer needs to manufacture complex turned and milled parts, not only in high quality, but also cost effective. A very special highlight of the new MAXXTURN 45 is the Y axis. It has been integrated into the machine structure and stands on extremely wide-set guide rails. This ensures extreme stiffness and top precision, even when performing difficult cutting tasks. In addition, the

MAXXTURN 45 has a Y axis with a very large travel, which also increases the number of machining op-tions when turning and milling. The MAXXTURN 45 is available with either a SIEMENS or FANUC control unit – and SHOPTURN or Manual Guide are standard equipment.

Tailored automation

As with all EMCO machines, there are of course perfectly customised automation fittings for the

MAXXTURN 45 too. There is a Swing Loader for automatic loading and feeding out. For bar work there are three different bar loaders on offer: a classical 3-metre loader, the EMCO short-bar loader LM800 for limited floor space and the CompactLoad E45. The latter is on offer in a package with the MAXXTURN 45 at an unbeatable discount price.”

Finest engineering

The MAXXTURN 45 is a 75°-slant bed machine. Its extremely stiff and compact welded-steel construction is a very good foundation for precise and economical manufacturing. The MAXXTURN 45 has the very best of equipment: pre-stressed roller guide ways mounted on ground surfaces ensure the best guide characteristics. Extra large precision bearings mean a very large range of speeds and exceptional running truth.

The high drive performance of the spindles combined with ideal torque curves make cutting steel and the high-speed cutting of aluminum economical.

EMCO swing loader

The MAXXTURN swing loader is a universal loading and unloading device for performed raw parts of all kinds. EMCO Automation can equip it according to your individual needs with numerous gripper and handling systems. How we do it: we standardize the components and customize the solution. The goal: a custom tailored machine for the same price as a standard unit.

Extremely Tough Aberlink CMM

Prompted by global industry’s growing trend for component inspection tasks being performed in close proximity to the manufacturing process, Aberlink have recently launched their robust, yet accurate ‘Extreme’ Coordinate Measuring Machine. Abel to operate in previous no-go areas for CMM’s, the revolutionary Aberlink Extreme utilises high precision mechanical bearing rather than the delicate air-bearings typically employed on less robust CMM’s. This novel approach negates the need for a clean, dry, compressed air supply. The Innovative new Aberlink machine’s mechanism, scales, guideways, etc, are entirely enclosed within a tough steel structure rendering the machine totally suitable for shop-floor use. Now the largest UK owned Coordinate Measuring Machine manufacturer, Aberlink’s leading-edge drive design and low inertia/high-speed characteristics enable the Extreme to slash inspection times and remove previous, quality department bottlenecks. Available in manual and CNC formats, the cost-effective Extreme has a generous measuring envelope of 400x400x400 mm, and an impressive resolution of 0.5 um.

Complementing Extreme’s easy to use characteristics, Aberlink’s 3-D Windows based, intuitive software was designed purposefully around a simple graphical interface. A welcome bi-product of any Aberlink CMM inspection routine is that a simultaneous picture of the measured component is created on the computer screen. Dimensions between the measured features, mirroring those that appear on the component drawing, are then picked off as required. In essence this ‘smart’ software represents an intelligent measuring system that is able to automatically recognise and define the various features being measured. The company claim that their Aberlink 3D is the easiest to use CMM software currently available and that a complete novice is usually able to perform relatively involved measurement routines after just 5 minutes training.
