Machining Complex Parts For The Human Body

The Deco (a-line) family of lathes comprises of four machines, including the Deco 20a, which is particularly suited for the medical sector. Because of its kinematic and high output, this unit is able to machine complex parts required for human implants, among others, with very short cycle times and without having to rework the part. The Deco 20a versatile machine has 10 axes and a counterspindle.

The Deco 20a versatile machine has 10 axes and a counterspindle. It allows for a combination of more than 20 tools to be interchanged, with 15 of them involved in turning. For the more complex milling operations, two C axes can be added to the main spindle and counterspindle. In addition, the CNC, which controls the movement of axes and speeds is part of the latest generation of Fanuc controls, the company says.
