Motion + Power Technology Expo Preview: WFL Millturn
September 3, 2019
WFL focuses on complete machining with a full range of Millturn machines. The possibilities for machining complex parts up to very big components are endless and more than twenty different machining methods can be performed.
The Millturn design concept is very robust and rigid with a massive cast iron bed. The main spindle as well as the high precision turning-boring-milling unit are extremely powerful. Gear manufacturing is all about keeping high quality demands, profile accuracy and reliability. The MillTurn concept offers the needed quality demands in combination with the highest possible flexibility. WFL's gearing solutions bring enormous gains and are a result of many years of development together with leading customers and partners.
These methods are supported by specific software cycles under the FLANX umbrella. Hobbing, Skiving, Profile Milling, InvoMilling and Gear Skiving are all available. In addition, the highly sophisticated InvoMilling CAD/CAM software can be offered due to a collaboration with Sandvik Coromant. With these manufacturing methods, virtually all machining challenges for gear manufacturing can be covered. Moreover, the possibility of measuring the gears in the machine improve the efficiency and reduce risk of error.
Machining of parts with gear or spline features does not mean any compromise compared with conventional machining using a gear hobber. Very tight quality demands will be kept and the possibility to machine all tasks in a single set-up gives major advantages when it comes to lead-times. Switching to 5-axis machining together with standard cutting tools, applying flexible methods such as InvoMilling enable floor-to-floor time to a fraction of what is common practice today. WFL Millturn Technologies will be located at Booth #4309.
