Suhner’s BEA 16 spindle machining unit has a new drive and control concept to integrate servo drive and control technology from Bosch Rexroth. Software developed additionally allows the user to program six different basic cycles without prior knowledge of CNC, the company says.

The six cycles of drilling, combined drilling, thread cutting, drilling with chip removal, drilling with jump function, and undercutting, has expedited the programming process. Plus, should the required machining cycle not be found among the standard selections or prove more complex, the unit can be switched to sentence programming.

The spindle machining unit itself has been designed for continuous use in multiple shift operations. It has a drilling capacity of 16 mm in diamter in 450 Nmm2 steel. The max feed path is 140 mm, and the max speed is 500 rpm, the company says.
