Tornos Open House announced

Added to MTDCNC by Tornos Technologies UK Ltd on 12 August 2013

For manufacturers unable to attend the world’s premiere machine tool event in Hanover during September, all is not lost. Tornos UK will be holding an Open House Event at its Coalville headquarters from 15-17th October to demonstrate the new turning and machining technology the company will have given their world premieres at EMO 2013.

As with all Tornos UK events, there will be a theme at the Open House. This year, Tornos will be focusing upon efficient one-hit machining and the reduction of bar waste. The Swiss manufacturer will highlight this with the first UK showing of the new SwissNano, Tornos ST26 and EvoDeco 32 sliding head turning centres. The new innovations will be accompanied by other established brands from the Tornos stable. The event will give visitors the opportunity to see seven machine tools in total. The technology will cover the single and multi-spindle turning disciplines as well as high precision machining centres.

The UK premiere of the Swiss ST26 7-axis turning centre will be a highlight of the event with its two independent tool platens and modular tooling arrangement. Developed by the engineers at Tornos with the remit of high performance and productivity levels with incredible ease-of-use, the Swiss manufacturer has undoubtedly ticked every box with the ST26. With 36 tool positions and up to 17 driven tools plus the ability to operate with or without a guidebush, the ST26 offers high productivity and rigidity with exceptional capability levels and all at an affordable price. Furthermore, with the guide bushless option the ST26 can turn parts beyond lengths of alternate sliding head machines whilst reducing bar waste and the associated costs for the customer.

For customers demanding a machine with the ultimate in productivity, flexibility and quality, Tornos UK will be giving the UK marketplace its first chance to see the new EvoDeco32. Equipped to cut with 4 tools simultaneously to maximise productivity plus a maximum of 10 linear axes for incredible versatility, the EvoDeco32 has been developed with the operator in mind. To this end, the EvoDeco32 incorporates Tornos’ TB-Deco software that is easy to program with intuitive graphic simulations for operator comfort. Furthermore, the EvoDeco range has a new design that gives operators ease-of-access to the work envelop as well as a large viewing area to watch the parts being manufactured. Renowned for its ability to produce high quality parts with precision and speed, Tornos has increased the power and torque levels on this 32mm diameter capacity machine to provide a robust solution for heavy cutting operations and high productivity environments.

At the smaller end of the spectrum, Tornos will be introducing its eye-catching new SwissNano series of turning centres. Primarily aimed at the watch making and small electronic component sectors, the SwissNano has a diameter capacity of 4mm with optimised kinematics for the production of extremely small and accurate parts. The product developers at Tornos have certainly broken the mould with the design of the Swissnano. It offers full 180 degree access to the work envelope and with its front opening doorway, it can be located against a wall in the workshop to minimise its impact on the workshop floor space. Another key aspect of the SwissNano is that Tornos has now made it the world’s first machine that can be operated and monitored with a tablet. As becoming commonplace with all new machines in the Tornos brand, the aesthetic appearance of the SwissNano is a real head turner. This is backed by a build quality and technology level that leaves the competition trailing.

As well as these new innovations, Tornos will be showing market leading innovations in the form of machine tools developed since the last EMO show. This will all be supported with a wide variety of tooling, accessories, cleaning equipment, cutting fluid, software products and additional ancillary equipment from some of Tornos UK’s technology partners.
