Four-Axis Turning On Twin-Spindle Machine

The working area design of the Twin 65 twin-spindle turning center is a result of the CNC-controlled transverse slide with a movement from the spindle centerline of 5. 7". This means that after the angular synchronized part transfer from the left spindle to the right spindle, the work piece can be finished using the upper turret without collision.

The working area design of the Twin 65 twin-spindle turning center is a result of the CNC-controlled transverse slide with a movement from the spindle centerline of 5.7". This means that after the angular synchronized part transfer from the left spindle to the right spindle, the work piece can be finished using the upper turret without collision. This feature also accommodates longer work pieces and tooling when compared to twin machines without this feature. The part is then removed from the right spindle.

Full four-axis turning is possible on either the left or right spindles as well as parallel matching achieving the shortest cycle time with the greatest flexibility. The main and counter spindles are equipped with identical integrated spindle motors and feature a C axis as well as hydraulic clamping. Also identical are the upper and lower turrets, each of which offer room for 12 power tools. As a result, the response time from one station to the other is only 0.14 seconds.

For simple programming of the most complex parts, the company offiers a new external programming tool, the DMG Programmer 3D Turning. The work area for the Twin machines has a complete 3D support. Once the geometrical dimensions of the parts have been loaded, the 3D model is available. Supported by the menu, manufacturing can be programmed in cycles. Following real-time simulation with collision control, only a single push of a button is needed to generate an optimal CNC program.
