Universal turning: Performance and precision in metalworking
Quality-oriented universal turning requires stable, low-vibration lathes that offer maximum power and precision at all times. The prerequisites for this are inherently rigid machine beds, robust box guideways or linear guides and high-precision rotary encoders and linear scales. Turrets with live tools or a tailstock and/or a steady rest for machining long workpieces increase the variety of machining possibilities.
Speed, turning diameter, distance between centres – the right machine 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 centres, centre height or swing diameter – the variety of models offers suitable sizes for every application.
- Precision through inherently rigid machine beds and robust box guideways or linear guides
- Variety of machining options due to turrets with live tools and Y-axis movement
- Powerful spindles for maximum performance
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 clampings minimise the potential for error. This in turn increases component quality.
The CLX 450 TC is the entry-level tool for turning and milling. The numerous models in the CTX beta TC, CTX gamma TC and NTX series mean that there is a suitable machine for every application, regardless of the weight of the workpiece. 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 of the Turn & Mill models from DMG MORI. Its ultra-compact dimensions and large swivel range enable optimal use of the working area. Depending on the machine model, a disc magazine or chain magazine automatically supplies the spindle with tools.
- Short throughput times thanks to complete machining in one work area
- Minimised potential for errors due to fewer manual clampings
- Complex geometries due to turning and milling including Y-axis turret movement
Horizontal production turning: Economical large series production
Production turning is characterised by the efficient manufacture of large quantities. With additional turrets or spindles, as well as live 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 maximised. Various robot-supported automation solutions can be used to machine components from billet.
DMG MORI has been a pioneer in production turning for decades. Solidly constructed machines ensure rigidity and precision when machining. With the NZ series, for example, up to four Y-axis turrets can be used in the work area. 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 live tools
- Constant material replenishment using a bar loader
