Complete Machining of Complex Workpieces

"With a powerful counter spindle permitting 4-axis machining, a B-axis with a direct drive for complex 5-axis simultaneous milling operations, an additional Y-axis for the lower turret and high-quality features, the Hyperturn 65 Powermill from EMCO Maier offers major advances in productivity for series production," said a company spokesperson.

The Hyperturn 65 Powermill is designed for the serial production of workpieces, for example in the automotive, mechanical engineering, materials handling and aerospace industries.

"Complex turning, drilling, milling and gear cutting operations can be carried out in just one set-up," said the spokesperson. "Additional clampings and the temporary storage of parts are no longer necessary and workpiece precision is greatly improved. Total production time, fixture and personnel costs, as well as floor space requirements, can be reduced."

With a spindle distance of 1,300 mm, the Hyperturn 65 Powermill has a large clearance for simultaneous machining on the main and counter spindles. With 29 kW and 250 Nm of torque, the counter spindle can machine a workpiece with two tools simultaneously for greater machining productivity.

The milling spindle features 29 kW, 79 Nm torque and 12,000 RPM for machining of complex workpieces. The B-axis direct drive is designed to provide enhanced dynamics and contour capabilities with 5-axis simultaneous machining, alongside shorter tool change times. The additional Y-axis on the lower turret makes milling work possible at the same time as machining with the milling spindle.

The milling spindle with HSK-T63 tool interface can be used for both turning and drilling/milling work. The milling spindle can be continuously swiveled within a range of +/- 120° and clamped where needed. It features Y-travel of +120/-100 mm for complex machining, such as gear cutting operations, turning/milling work for crankpins, 5-axis machining, etc. The tools can be prepared according to the customer's requirements with a 20-piece pick-up magazine, or a 40 or 80-piece chain magazine.

The Y-axis was realized by two interpolating axes, resulting in a distribution of the cutting force in two levels and added stability to heavy-duty turning and milling. This means the lower turret with integrated milling drive can also be used for complex milling operations at all 12 positions, combined with a Y-axis with +/-50 mm travel.

"The 20, 40 or 80-piece tool magazines with HSK-T63 give the user more possibilities for complete machining operations of complex workpieces, with simultaneously low set-up times for individual parts manufacturing and high stability for turning and milling works," said the spokesperson. "The frontal arrangement is easy to set up and ergonomic.

"As an alternative to the VDI30 or VDI40 12-position tool turret, EMCO offers a new generation of turret with BMT interface and direct drive. Higher stability and precision, and performance data similar to a milling machine, enable the complete machining of turning/milling workpieces."

The machine versions with a milling spindle and turret, including milling drive, have a cross slide underneath with a 12-position radial turret for 12 driven tools working at speeds up to 5,000 RPM.

Automatic bar machining and/or delivery of unit loads via a robot or an EMCO gantry loader offer potential for increased efficiency in automation.

The Hyperturn 65 is equipped with the SINUMERIK 840D-sl control unit from Siemens. According to the company, the new user interface enables intuitive and easier programming of the machine.

The EMCO CPS Pilot software permits customers to plan, program, simulate and optimize production runs on their PCs using a 3D model of the machine.
