Automation Options for Mill-Turn Centers

The EMCO Maier Hyperturn 45 turning and milling center is geared for applications in automotive and general engineering. It features high-performance main and counter spindles, two tool systems, a stable Y-axis, a thermo-symmetrical machine construction, compact dimensions and a range of intelligent automation solutions.

A 3-axis portal in the machine permits convenient automated loading and unloading, and users are offered a choice of automation options. The machine system includes measurement, deburring and cleaning stations.

In addition to the flexible gripper system, the machine includes a palletizing cell designed to meet the customer's workpiece requirements or blanks to be processed. The work area includes loading ports that retract downward.

Autoloading Options for Turn-Mill

  • Unloading through the counter spindle

The enlarged spindle nose (A2-5) enables the unloading of bar stock parts with a diameter of up to 45 mm through the spindle. The parts are generally set down onto an inclined surface, or alternatively onto a controlled discontinuous belt, preventing damage to workpieces.

  • Swing loader

This compact and fast loading device for any kind of pre-formed blanks is integrated into the basic machine. With a longitudinal swivel movement, the gripper picks up the blanks from the feeding system (discontinuous belt or feed track) and loads them into the machine spindle. The parts catcher typically transports and sets down the finished part away from the working area.

EMCO's NC-controlled compact swing loader is designed for easy programming. Combining linear movement with rotation, the automation process works in short strokes, quickly orienting loading of raw workpieces in the machine spindle, and removing finished parts to a conveyor. Grippers can be quickly changed to accommodate different parts or blanks.

  • TopLoad

TopLoad, also developed by EMCO, can be used to load up to 3-meter long bar stock into the machine automatically. With a patented guidance system, it takes only one to two minutes to change from one diameter to another. Steady rests adjusted to the stock diameter guide the bar stock smoothly, keeping production conditions quiet.

"Even the basic version of the Hyperturn 45 now offers a Y-axis with 70 mm traveling distance in the upper and a Z2-axis in the lower carriage system," said a company spokesperson. "The water-cooled main and counter spindle motors provide a higher drive power of 15 kW and feature a maximum speed of 7,000 RPM and higher torque of 100 Nm. The latest Siemens Sinumerik 840D-sl control and drive system, the Solution Line, makes programming the machine easy and effective. A fold-out PC keyboard is an ergonomic plus."
