Heavy duty cutting places particular requirements on the machine and working processes. If this involves a material such as titanium, which is particularly hard to cut, specific know-how is necessary to deal with these requirements. Thanks to its expertise, WFL Millturn Technologies GmbH & Co. KG impresses in this field with a machining solution for aircraft landing gear.
Market changes and mutual dependencies between value creation stages require both new technical and economical solutions. How can companies face these challenges with greater resilience? How can we exploit the benefits of increased cost-effectiveness? These questions are being posed by the transnational "EuProGigant" project. The aim is to ensure smart, sovereign use of data for production and bring this to Europe.
Automation tasks are becoming ever more challenging. Using intelligent software in combination with the relevant automation solutions not only enables workpieces to be loaded and unloaded but also means that machine tools can be set up fully automatically through automatic replacement of tools and clamping devices. FRAI strives to be an innovative automation partner and is therefore developing highly flexible robot systems to respond to this trend. Concepts such as the mobileCELL are a complete first and enable a wide range of expansion stages, making them as future-proof and competitive as possible.
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.
