Customer-specific solutions with measurable results

Productivity in a new dimension

Task Setting

  • Complete machining of cast-iron ring.
  • Machining of large workpieces to the full capacity.
  • Imbalance testing and correction.
  • Achieving a superior surface finish.
  • High demands on HSK100 spindle due to protruding length of the tool.

Project scope and solution

  • Use of HELLER milling/turning centre model CP 8000.
  • Fully-fledged milling and drilling functionality on a single machine.
  • State-of-the-art 5-axis machining with pallet changer.
  • 60 kW spindle power.
  • 1,456 Nm torque.
  • 8,000 rpm torque.
  • Optimal use of tools for turning, milling, drilling/deep-hole drilling, reaming and thread-cutting on the same machine.
  • Optimisation of process parameters provides superior surface finish.
  • Integrated balancing function enables machining of precise surfaces and ensures high repeatability of centric clamping for turning operations.
  • Designed for highest availability and productivity.

Result

  • Production mill-turning of workpiece weights up to 2,000 kg.
  • Use of 5-axis machining centre provides shorter production chain whilst reducing handling requirements and the number of setups.
  • Integration of turning functionality into the machining centre enables complete machining of the component in a single setup.
  • High machining reliability due to high repeatability of centric clamping.
