Universal turning: Performance and precision in metalworking
Quality-oriented universal turning requires stable, low-vibration lathes that offer maximum performance and precision at all times. The prerequisites for this are inherently rigid machine beds, robust guideways or linear guides and high-precision position measuring systems. Turrets with powered tools or a tailstock and/or a steady rest for machining long workpieces also increase the variety of machining.
Speed, turning diameter, distance between centers – the right machine data for every application
Both in the entry-level range with the attractively priced CLX models and in the high-tech segment with the proven CTX and NLX lathes, DMG MORI sets standards in the machining of demanding precision workpieces. A powerful main spindle ensures that all models offer the right speed and the required torque. Distance between centers, center height or swing diameter – the variety of models offers suitable sizes for every application.
- Precision through inherently rigid machine beds and robust guideways or linear guides
- Variety of machining options through turret with powered tools and Y-axis
- Maximum performance through powerful spindles
Turn & Mill: 6-sided complete machining of complex workpieces
In order to produce complex geometries, for a long time it was common to first turn workpieces and then finish them on milling machines. DMG MORI was one of the first manufacturers to integrate both technologies in one workspace. The advantage: Turning and milling in one work area reduces throughput times. Fewer manual re-clamping processes minimize the potential for errors. This in turn increases component quality.
The CLX 450 TC is the entry-level tool for turning and milling. The numerous models of the CTX beta TC, CTX gamma TC and NTX series also offer a suitable machine for every application in this area – regardless of the weight of the workpieces. The Turn & Mill machines are equipped with the compactMASTER milling spindle.
Complex geometries thanks to the compactMASTER spindle
The patented compactMASTER milling spindle is the heart and soul of the Turn & Mill models from DMG MORI. Its ultra-compact dimensions and its large swivel range enable optimal use of the working space. Depending on the machine model, a disk magazine or chain magazine automatically supplies the spindle with tools.
- Short throughput times thanks to complete machining in one work area
- Minimized potential for errors due to fewer manual re-clamping processes
- Complex geometries through turning and milling including Y-axis
Horizontal production turning: Economical large series production
Production turning is characterized by the efficient manufacture of large quantities. With additional turrets or spindles, as well as powered tools, even complex turned parts can be machined from bars quickly and economically. Bar loaders ensure a constant supply of material so that machine run times are maximized. Various robot-supported automation solutions can be used to machine chuck components.
DMG MORI has been a pioneer in production turning for decades. Solidly constructed machines ensure rigidity and precision in machining. With the NZ series, for example, up to four turrets including Y-axis can be used in the work area. The WASINO automatic lathes, on the other hand, represent maximum accuracy, especially in series production in the automotive sector.
- Efficient production of large quantities
- High component complexity due to additional turrets and powered tools
- Constant replenishment using a bar loader
