The OMNI- TURN is a totally new concept for
machining precision parts requiring accurate and heavy turning
operations combined with other shorter machining operations.
TURN machines combine rotating part and rotating tool processes,
resulting in cycle time and productivity improvements of
up to 300%. Since there is no need to split critical machining
operations, part quality is optimized .
An OMNI- TURN combines a rotary table with
several lathe units in an integrated machine. All the turning
operations are carried out independently in the lathe units
in one single clamping; thereby ensuring extremely tight
concentricity tolerances and high quality surface finishes.
The turning operations, executed with the part rotating,
can be done subsequent to, or in between those operations
performed with rotating tools. These processing options
maximize quality, precision and cycle time, when machining
complex turned parts. The flexibility of the system, completely
CNC- controlled, is also an ideal manufacturing solution
for families of parts in medium or small batches.
The transfer area is utilized to execute pre-machining
operations (such as centering and facing) and any subsequent
operations with rotating tools (like milling, broaching,
transversal holes). Loading of the blanks or of the bar
stock and unloading of the finished part is fully automated.
