The Felsomat FlexLine is a highly productive solution for gear manufacturing. The complete systems includes besides all the machine tools also the complete material handling, from rough to finish part, without interface, from a single source.
The consequent combination of all manufacturing technologies into one production system. All process steps are linked together in integrated synchronized flow production. Elimination of single process steps and the drastic reduction of inventory and through put time. The focus of our machine design principles, are a high rigidity and short travel ways. Only premium quality components of first class rated European manufacturers are used for our machine components such as, spindles, turrets, guide ways, machine bases and controls. With the intelligent configuration of our machines, they are constantly cutting chips. There are no unproductive idle times neither at turning or hobbing chip to chip < 1 sec. Based on the two spindle design of our machines, the loading and unloading as well as the chamfering deburring is done in parallel to the machining. The Felsomat FlexLine is a highly productive solution for gear manufacturing. The complete Flexline system includes all machine tools and the completely integrated material handling system. Complete gear manufactuirng from end to end from a single source, Felsomat.
The individual production machines can be linked together based on the requirements with automation concepts of the Felsomat building blocks. The criteria for the FlexLine configuration is the fast and flexible start of production, volume variations, or simple production with mixed batches. The guiding idea behind the Felsomat FlexLine is based on the high production assembly line invented by Henry Ford. Therefore the Felsomat Flexline eliminates the disadvantage of the rigid line tact with simple decoupling modules.
The Felsomat FlexLine offers the possibility of the optimum gear production solution, utilizing innovative building block design modules that are easily reconfigurable. The result is a highly efficient integrated standardized production system, built from interchangeable technology modules and automation components, for lowest cost per part and a maximum of profit without compromising quality and process stability.
