Note: For video the recording, we substituted brass so we colud run without cutting oil.

Part: Throttle Shaft

Material: 3/8" 12L14 Cycle Time: 2 min. 5 sec. (3 min. 19 sec. with engraving)

No. Of Tools Used: 10 (tooled with Sandvik QS quick change system)

Barfeed: MCC – C320 with quick change channels

Coolant: Blaser Vascomill 22

Notes: We are utilizing a barfeed parameter setting for front ejection and programming the main spindle collet to release the material for the last part from the bar. We use the sub-spindle C axis and S2 spindle rotation to finish the end of the part while still in the guide bushing side. If we used standard programming, this part would have an 18” long remnant. With this creative programming, we are getting a 2”-3” remnant. 

We are also showing the long work piece device and the 3PM (formerly ATAM) tool monitoring system for this process.

Key features:

  • Low Cost but very rigid design utilizing "roller" linear guides
  • Fanuc 32i control with Citizen Streamline Control features
  • 1” drill sleeves / 6 turning tools / 4 front / 4 back / 4 live
  • Able to machine from the sub spindle to the GB gang for milling or turning.
  • 32 mpm rapids (1260 ipm)
  • C2 axis following C1 axis command standard
  • Pre-Processing function is user switchable
  • Sandvik quick change and 100% Sandvik tooling shown at IMTS
  • Long Workpiece Support used to eject and support the shaft
  • 3PM tool monitoring used to monitor all tools. The system is using three sensors; two are on the main gang plate and one is on the sub-spindle. You can see a tool signature in the picture to the right.

Part: Hydraulic Steering Valve

Material: 1.0” 12L14 (supplied by Banner)

Cycle Time: 1 min. 54 sec.

No. Of Tools Used: 12 (tooled with Kennametal KM quick change system)

Barfeed: Citizen C332

Notes: This part has heavy turning. We are cutting .3125" per side DOC. 

Using a built-in control function, we are using a blank carbide tool to probe a turned diameter using servo torque sensing and then auto adjusting the turning tools offset. This process is accurate to about +- .0005”.

Key Machine Features:

  • Very rigid design, "roller" linear guides.
  • Mitsubishi M70 control with Citizen's Streamline Control features
  • 1” drill sleeves / 6 turning tools / 4 front / 4 (8) back / 4 live
  • 45 mpm rapids (1771 ipm) which makes it the fastest Swiss in the World!
  • T700 is ER16 and is 2:1 gear reduced for heavier cuts requiring more torque.

 

Note: For video the recording, we substituted brass so we could run without cutting oil.

Part: Hydraulic Spool - 3.75" OAL

Material: 303 Stainless Cycle Time: 4 min. 27 sec.

Number Of Tools Used: 14 - tooled with NTK turning and Sandvik/Dormer Drilling

Barfeed Used: New CAV16E - 35 sec barload time. Its new quick change channel system permits an entire channel change in about 8-10 minutes.

Coolant: Blaser Vascomill 22

Note: The new K16e has a 90 deg. live tool (GSS1430) for back work. We're using it in the video to do slotting on the cut-off end.

Part: Medical Device Piece Part

Material: 10mm 303 Stainless 

No. Of Tools Used: 21 (still more tool stations unused)

Barfeed: CAV 20E with approximately 8 min. channel change time

Coolant: Blaser Vascomill 10

Notes: The L20e-X compliments the L20e-IX. The gang slide tooling is the same as the L20e-IX. The primary difference is the Type X also has a Y axis on the sub-spindle side. This Y2 axis enables two (2) rows of front ID tools two (2) rows of backworking tools. 

For starters we can offer (6) front working ID and (8) backworking ID tools mounted. As we always utilize the modular concept there are optional live tools to enable cross milling/drilling from the T20’s or T30’s. With these tool holders we can pinch mill off the GB side or Pinch cross drill, and with superimposition we can cut different features simultaneously while superimposed.

Part: Trophy Cup assembled from three different parts out of the sames set-up

Material: 1 ¼” brass Cycle Time: approx. 6 min.

No. Of Tools Used: 20 (mixture of Sandvik/Kennametal/Mitsubishi)

Barfeed: Citizen CAV32

Coolant: Blaser Vascomill 10

Notes: This demo features a special sub-spindle collet that can pick-off three (3) different parts. It has two diameters and also has slots down the inner length to accommodate clearance for the handles to enter the collet.

K16e-VII - IMTS was the U.S. debut of The K16e debuted in the U.S. at IMTS-2010. It is faster than its.predecessor and now includes back live tools at part of its standard equipment. It is also now equipped the the Mitsubishi M70 control (same as the A32 and the L20-IX) and it all comes at a new lower base price.

307120 810124L20e-X  - The L20e-X began shipping in 2011. The gang slide tooling is the same as the L20e-IX so the primary difference is the Type X also has a Y axis on the sub-spindle side. This Y2 axis enables two (2) rows of front ID tools two (2) rows of backworking tools. You can choose from both versions, the Type IX and X, depending upon your tooling needs.

307120 808777A20-VII - In this demo we ran a 12.75" long "throttle shaft". Normally, such a long part would result in an approximately 18" long bar remnant. However in this case, even though the bar end was out of the main spindle, we used the sub-spindle to drive the last part while it was still supported by the guide bushing. With this creative programming, we are getting a 2”-3” remnant.

307120 810123A32-VII  - This part features heavy turning with a .3125" depth of cut per side.

Also, using a built-in control function, we used a blank carbide tool to probe and measure a turned diameter with servo torque sensing and then auto-adjusting the turning tools offset. This process is accurate to about +- .0005”.
