GMTA’s Rasoma DSP 450-2 double-spindle machining centers offer high rigidity, in particular machine types due to separate X and Z slides, plus the fact that the machine head is designed as a monoblock with polymer concrete fill.

Thermal stability is enhanced by cooled motor spindles and the rapid traverse on these centers ranges up to 60 m/min. at high acceleration, with feed and removal speeds to 120 m/min., less than 6 seconds from part to part and turret indexing typically under 1 second, the company says.  

According to the company, full option packages include robotic handling and part articulation, integrated metrology onboard, working inside or outside the work envelope, full tool measurement and monitoring systems and driven tool packages, all controlled by a single Siemens CNC.

  • Competing On A Multi-Spindle

    For many high-volume applications, multi-spindle automatics are the right technology for production machining. Increasingly, that production efficiency has been pressured by changes in the needs of shops in the form of shorter run jobs and higher tolerances. This article looks at some of the steps one OEM has taken to address quick change-over issues on its multi-spindle machines and their tooling.
