Customizable CNC Machine and Automation Solutions

SW's BA 322i is a twin-spindle horizontal machining center that functions as an independent manufacturing cell.

The BA W08-12 has an extensive work area suited for the efficient machining of large nonferrous workpieces.

SW North America will host machining and automation demonstrations all six days of IMTS. The demonstrations will include live machining of a battery housing for a hybrid automotive vehicle on the BA W08-12 and a gun slide on the BA 322i. As a systems supplier, SW will also be offering information on completely automated systems solutions for automotive, firearms, medical, aerospace, construction and agriculture industries and more.

SW's BA W08-12 is suited for machining large workpieces made of aluminum and other nonferrous materials. This machine features one spindle, two worktables and a work area of 1,500 mm x 900 mm x 650 mm on the X-, Y- and Z-axis. Direct drive technology on all axes provides enhanced acceleration and speed (up to 2 g and 120 m/min), and the independent X- and Z-axes increase flexibility and accuracy. Both 4- and 5-axis machining can be performed. The large machining area allows machining of workpieces for the automotive, EV, aerospace and agriculture and construction industries and more.

Efficiency can be further increased by integrating one of SW's modularly expandable automation solutions. The FloorRob, TopRob, Robot Gantry and MobileRob AGV are all automation possibilities designed to increase productivity and eliminate the ergonomic challenges of large workpieces. This machine is also available as a twin-spindle model with one worktable, or as part of SW's new single-table series with one worktable and one or two spindles.

The BA 322i is designed to function as an independent manufacturing cell that can store enough workpieces for an entire shift. This twin-spindle horizontal machining center doubles output while using less floorspace and less energy. The integrated 6-axis robot utilizes the vertical workpiece storage tower to load and unload workpieces in parallel to machining time due to the double swivel carrier. The monoblock and box-in-box design are SW standards, providing more stability and precision. This plug & play solution is suited for the machining of impellers, brake calipers, scroll compressors, ABS valve bodies, gun slides and more.
