Redesigned Turning Center Ensures Dynamic Results in Complex Milling and Drilling Operations

EMCO's MAXXTURN 65 G2 has been completely redesigned.

With its clever modular design, the machine offers a wide range of options for specific customer requirements.

The high drive power of the main and counter spindles, combined with optimum torque characteristics, ensures economic efficiency in the machining of steel as well as in the high-speed machining of aluminium.

12 driven tools and a Y-axis ensure perfect results in complex milling and drilling operations. With numerous automation solutions and the EMCONNECT digital process assistant, the MAXXTURN 65 G2 is state-of-the-art and enables low-manpower production in operation.

The core of the machine is the 40° inclined bed. Designed as an extremely rigid and compact welded steel construction, it is the basis for a robust and precise lathe. Reinforcements provide additional rigidity in zones exposed to higher stress.

As a further development of the MAXXTURN 65 G1, the machine impresses with its modern and innovative design. The optimized integration of the chip conveyor ensures compact dimensions. Instead of belt drives, spindle motors are used on the main and counter spindles, which ensures a particularly wide speed range of up to 5000 rpm and extremely good concentricity properties.

Three main spindle sizes are available depending on customer requirements: Standard Ø 65mm / BigBore Ø 77mm / SuperBigBore Ø 95mm. A symmetrically designed headstock, together with temperature sensors at the bearing points and liquid cooling, ensure high thermal stability.

The C-axis is part of the basic machine equipment and allows the positioning of the spindle within a resolution of 0.001°. Due to the directly flanged encoder, the C-axis is ideally suited for contour-precise milling; a hydraulic holding brake (option) can be additionally activated.

The Y-axis is also integrated in the basic machine structure and set at 90° to the X-axis. Extremely short projection lengths form the basis for solid turning and drilling operations as well as contour-free milling operations.

On the MT65M-G2 with tailstock, the tailstock is mounted on the roller guide track and can be moved automatically over a length of 500 mm. A drag steady rest with Ø 8-101 mm is optionally available. This ensures even more flexible use of the machine, e.g. for shaft machining.

On the MT65S-G2 with counter spindle, the counter spindle head is seated on its own roller guide track and can be moved automatically over a length of 580 mm. The spindle is driven by an integrated spindle motor (ISM) with liquid cooling. A stroke-monitored parts ejector, flooded with coolant, ensures safe removal of the finished parts.

The customer can choose between the SINUMERIK ONE or the FANUC 31i-B control system. The control panel on the MAXXTURN 65 G2 is height-adjustable on the right and can be swivelled, which ensures the best ergonomics. 22" multi-touch screens improve the view of individual control functions.
