Depending on the make, the Maxxturn 45 forms the basis for efficient machining of precision and machined parts. The range of manufactured workpieces ranges from hydraulic/pneumatic components, to machines as well as engine and automotive parts, all the way to components from the field of biomedical engineering or the fields of materials and bulk material handling. Friction and antifriction bearing parts are just a few more examples of the nearly endless possibilities.

A swing loader is included for automatic loading and feeding out of the machined parts. This extremely compact and integrated loader is controlled via the machine control. The exceptional combination of a swivel movement and a linear movement, driven by servomotors, guarantees simple and fast setup. As a result, preformed raw parts can also be inserted position-oriented into the clamping device. After machining has been completed the finished parts are transported out of the machine via the parts catcher. EMCO has two different versions of bar loaders on offer for bar work – the swing loader as a universal loading system for all types of preformed blanks and the short bar loader SL1200 as the perfect solution for automatic feeding and loading of cut-to-length bars.

One of the characteristics which distinguishes the entire Maxxturn line is that the Y axis is integrated in the body of the machine. This ensures maximum stability, as well as utmost precision of all parts manufactured. The extremely wide distances between the guides make for stable turning and offer the operator additional possibilities for complete machining.

The compact counter spindle is an additional highlight, taking over workpieces position-oriented and with utmost precision for machining the reverse side. This avoids having to clamp workpieces a second time, thereby avoiding wait time, which in turn increases productivity and makes for shorter part delivery periods. The tool turret with single-motor engineering offers space for 12 VDI25 tool holders. Each station can accept driven tools. A servo motor powers the driven tools and the swivel movement, respectively. The tool holders, equipped with EMCO joggling plates, allow easy tool insertion with repeatable accuracy without the need for time-consuming adjustments.

In the course of modular assembly customers can choose between a Siemens (incl. ShopTurn dialogue interface) and a Fanuc control interface (incl. Manual-Guide-i control interface).
