Turning with highest efficency

Lowest cost per piece, highest reliability and continuous accuracy (within microns) the Flexible Turning Center 180 sets new economic and quality standards in green and precision hard turning. It is especially designed for high performance processes and for eco-friendly dry processing of chucking work pieces. The FTC reduces existing costs by up to 50% per piece, achieving turning results never witnessed before: High precision turned parts equal to grinding quality.

The extraordinary bench mark:

  • Chip-to-chip time < 1 second due to
  • loading/unloading parallel to the processing
  • in pendular machining with 2 spindles
  • Change over time < 10 min
  • Ideal for dry machining
  • Tail stock for shaft type components (option)
  • Easy operator interface with intelligent technology software package
  • Singular construction design with lift hooks for easy redeployment

For a multitude of manufacturing possibilities:

  • Green machining of precise chucked components in two operations
  • Precision hard turning

Precision to the µm, day after day, year after year

All turning machines of the FTC 180 platform have a mono-block machine base made from mineral base concrete for maximum rigidity with optimum damping characteristics and high dynamic axis servo drives. The turret with Hirth coupling in combination with the CAPTO C5 tool connection, direct driven synchron motor spindle with a front bearing of 120mm are the guarantee of highest quality and a long life of the production machine. If needed for the process driven tools for milling or grinding operations can be included in the turret.
