Visitors will be able to see for themselves how WFL is setting trends at the 3-day trade fair with exhibition space spanning over 4,000 square metres. Workpieces with diameters ranging from 100mm to 1180mm and lengths of 150mm to 5240mm will be machined live at the exhibition.
One of the innovations being showcased is the mobile robot automation on the proven M65 MILLTURN. Visitors can also look forward to exciting expert discussions about pioneering industry trends and developments.
At this year's WFL Technology Meeting, you can experience two new M20-G MILLTURNs live. One of the counter spindle machines is equipped with an innovative automation solution – the intCELL. The turning-boring-milling unit with integrated spindle motor and a B-axis with torque motor is completely new. Another highlight is the individual tool holder with B-axis on the lower slide.
The upper and lower system can be used simultaneously. Both systems are supplied from a joint magazine by a reliable, dynamic tool changer. Highly complex components can therefore be produced extremely efficiently on both spindles at the same time without the usual setting-up of the tool turret.
As the centre of the milling spindle can travel up to 100mm below the turning centre, drill patterns on the face up to Ø 200mm can be produced with high precision without rotation of the C-axis.
Another key advantage of this machine is that a wide range of automation options can be integrated with ease. The new, integrated "intCELL" production cell is mounted on the right-hand side of the machine and the workpieces are provided on a strip accumulator. Thanks to the integrated loading concept, WFL has reduced the space required compared to a conventional production cell by 50%.
The integrated M20-G loading is designed for chuck parts up to 300 mm in diameter and workpieces up to 15 kg in weight. In the case of shaft parts, a workpiece diameter of 100 mm and a workpiece length of 300 mm is possible.
