Productivity and cost pressure forces market actors to refine their machining processes towards quality and efficiency. To achieve that goals, parts should be finshed with at least steps as possible. Even with a lot of material removal the parts should feature the required quality without additional handling.

Material challenges

The materials within the Machinery and General Mechanics industry vary from steel, over cast iron, inox to aluminum parts. Cost efficient single touch machining and stable precision inspite of dynamic machining are some of the major challenges. To overcome these we provide platform solutions to take opportunities for business development thanks to reduced cost of integration. Furthermore we offer monitoring solutions to mantain compliance and improve process quality.

Our market-oriented solutions

Step-Tec HPC 150 platform

The HVC/HPC 150 Spindle platform offers a minimal diameter of 150mm and can accomodate  higher diameters. This platform combines the advantages of a HVC platform, first of all the high speed and the advantages of the HPC platform, the power and torque for extended roughing. This platform solution is perfectly suited when it comes to high material removal combined with high surface quality. Therefor it offers many advantages:  In-house manufactured extrem round shafts for surface quality, Cool-Core technology and Opticool-System for polar temperature stability and thus enabling realiability and optional an AE-sensor for advanced grinding. 

 

 

The HVC/HPC 150 One Touch spindle is ideal for finishing parts in a single clamping, with a maximum speed of 24,000 rpm and 41 Nm (S6 40%) of torque.

Step-Tec HPC 190 platform

The HPC 190 Spindle platform offers a minimal diameter of 190mm and can accomodate  higher diameters. As an HPC platform it provides the necessary power, torque and speed for part production, roughing and finishing requiring Machinery and General Mechanics industry.
