As the energy sector continues to advance, efficient and high-precision methods of producing components are a crucial aspect. One area that requires special attention is the machining of crankshafts. WFL Millturn Technologies is responding to this need by offering ground-breaking solutions for the complete machining of crankshafts in small series.
Energy production, energy efficiency, energy crisis—the topic of energy concerns us today more than ever. The growth of clean energy technologies is relentless, companies want to manage their energy budgets efficiently and the carbon footprint of products will probably become a sales criterion soon.
At the CIMT 2023, which takes place from April 10th–15th, WFL will present its technology and software solutions, such as WFL iControl, scanning technologies, or the new operational data acquisition system myWFL. But that is not the end of the story. The actual highlight of the show is the presentation of the M30 Millturn and a machining demonstration of a roots rotor.
At AMB 2022, WFL Millturn Technologies will be presenting the new M20 MILLTURN complete machining center for the first time. Alongside gear skiving technology, there is clear trend toward automation and the integration of sensors. The latest solutions from WFL range from smart software to screw programming through to intelligent tools and clamping devices.
IMTS visitors can experience live machining with the WFL M50 MILLTURN/3000 mm. The multifunctional turning-boring-milling center is designed for complete machining of complex chuck and shaft parts up to 670 mm swing over bed. Turning, milling, drilling, hobbing, shaping, gun drilling as well as ID machining can be performed under any angle of the tool.
The WFL Technology Meeting takes place June 21-23, 2022. Visitors can look forward to expert discussions on the latest industry trends and developments. Highlights during the event include machine demonstrations, measurement technologies, automation solutions and more.

Multitasking machines have a pretty clear sales pitch: They can do what you need them to and make a gear, but if you’re a job shop with fingers in a lot of pies, you can also use them for anything else you might need to make. Hobbing, cutting, milling, now even gear skiving; if it’s a cutting process, a multitasking machine can probably do
