Stama Highlights Vertical-Spindle Mill-Turn Series
December 26, 2018
The MT 733 series from Stama (Chiron Group) allows all six sides of a workpiece to be machined on a single five-axis center. The machining center's gantry design lends it optimized static, dynamic and thermal rigidity. This offers advantages when machining complex or difficult-to-machine workpieces, which can now be milled and turned with particularly high levels of accuracy using the MT 733. The high process stability means that even the very first part to be produced is always correctly dimensioned, both when manufacturing single items and in series production.
An optional feature of the new series is active temperature control for linear guides, chip channels and the whole machine structure. This allows for even higher precision in combined milling/turning machining. An integrated automation system facilitates the supply and removal of bar stock and/or chuck parts to and from the machine. Customers can choose from four MT 733 models in total, and can customize their machining centers to suit their specific requirements.
The MT 733 machining centers from Chiron and Stama are fitted with the newly developed "TouchLine" operating system from their market launch as standard. The system guides the user step by step through operation, adapting its interface depending on the task and the context. If required, the full machine documentation and the maintenance instructions can also be called up on the 24" panel. This means that folders and paper are things of the past. TouchLine can be operated intuitively and interactively with the same familiar motions as for smartphones and tablets: Press, drag and swipe. The user receives further support in the form of condition messages, which display critical parameters, detect causes and suggest rectification solutions.
