Robot Loading Schaublin Machine Launch

Robot Loading Schaublin Machine Launch

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 13 November 2012

Schaublin Machines SA will be using the PRODEX exhibition in Basle (Hall 1 Stand C06) ) as the platform to launch its new Schaublin Machines 142 Series of Multi-Tasking centres. The new machine has been developed equally for production machining and small batch runs, as it combines flexibility with renowned Schaublin Machines precision and quality. The 142 7AX-Y-CP will be demonstrated with an automatic integrated Loading / Unloading system using a  Staubli TX90L Robot for loading of the pre machined blank components and Unloading of finished machined components.

The new 142 7AX-Y-CP machine being presented is part of a modular range that includes several models with between 2 and 7 linear axes to suit the exacting needs of the end user. The range enables Schaublin Machines to present a machining solution clearly dedicated to production environments as well as small batch or prototype machining. The 142 series is the ideal partner for any company targeting high precision, repeatability and reliability. Schaublin Machines delivers all of this in a compact and rigid turning centre with the A2-5 spindle nose enabling a maximum chucking diameter of 180mm with a spindle throughbore of 42mm for bar working.

The 142 Series can work with bars or billets with Robot Loading. With optional twin spindles and twin motorized turret each with 12x12 live tools, it is possible to work on both sides of the part simultaneously. The 23kW main and 23Kw counter-spindle simplifies the transition between front and back-end working.

Renowned for its reputation for precision, the latest addition guarantees machining accuracy with a cooling system using glycol water that passes through 17 areas of the machine as well as the main base. This ensures every part of the machine works at the same temperature to avoid any non-mastered dilatation effect that can affect precision.

The turret has been designed to be as small and compact as possible to improve the mounting of live tooling that can operate at up to 12,000rpm on every position. Working in a compact envelope with a high number of tooling requires exceptional chip removal. It is here that the 142 Series enables cutting fluid to be directed precisely to the cutting edge at a pressure level up to an optional 60 bar. This efficiently evacuates swarf from the work envelope and also prolongs tool life.

With the new machine, Schaublin Machines has identified tool pre-setting as an area where it can minimize downtime and improve productivity. With this in mind, Schaublin Machines has developed a tool setting system in conjunction with its partner Sauter Feinmechanik. The company has developed this system rather than use a universal system because accuracy is improved as it guarantees the exact position of the pre-set tools. This allows the customer to quickly change tools whilst obtaining remarkable accuracy levels that are expected from the outstanding Schaublin Machines range.

Paying attention to detail, the new 142 Series incorporates a 3D anti-collision system that enables the turret to work in close proximity.  With axis feed rates of up to 40m/min and no possibility of collision, this gives the operator confidence when working at high feed and speed rates.

The new 142 series offers modular turning centres that can be rapidly adapted to specific applications whether it is high production runs or small batches with frequent changeovers. This modularity has been an area of particular development and design focus for Schaublin Machines as it has aimed to produce a machine that can be rapidly added to with complementary devices and peripherals. Flexibility can be found throughout the machine, this includes powerful main and counter-spindle that creates balanced machining.
