Mill/Turn Machine Series Redesigned to Go Beyond Standard

July 30, 2020
EMCO has revamped it Hyperturn machines, functionally and visually, to achieve productivity, efficiency, user-friendliness, ergonomic compliance, and automation.

The new EMCO GmbH Hyperturn 45 G3 is an entry-level machine for the Hyperturn series, with a 760-mm spindle distance for collision-free processing with two turrets. The expanded working space offers sufficient room for the integration of BMT turrets in 12x or 16x versions. With a precision interface for fast tool-changeover and direct drive for high-power milling of complex workpieces, it is an excellent choice for manufacturers seeking a reliable addition of mill-turn machining capability.

The Hyperturn 45 G3 has a redesigned machine base and slide geometry to enlarge the working space and accommodate a wider turret clearance, to allow integration of a 16-station tool turret and a larger Y-axis stroke of +/- 40mm.

The machine remains compact, with a 72°-slant bed supporting ergonomic requirements and optimal chip flow.

The water-cooled direct drive has 8 kW of power; it drills and mills at up to 12,000 rpm and offers 20 Nm of torque. The stable BMT interface ensures that tools have a long service life. Overall, it gives the user more possibilities in terms of workpiece processing or increasing productivity.

EMConnect — a digital process assistant for the comprehensive integration of customer- and system-specific applications for controlling the machine and the production flow — is supplied with the machine's standard equipment. As the operating sequences focus on users and their requirements, it makes it possible to create more efficient work processes without losing sight of the machine's reliability in all operating modes.

Turn/Mill-Assist — EMCO offers holistic solutions for the automation of machine tools, namely Turn/Mill Assist, the most compact solution for loading and unloading EMCO turning and milling machines, and characterized by its user-friendliness. Thanks to the "beginner friendly" control, users can get to work quickly, which results in higher efficiency, profitability, and flexibility. The work will get effectively easier; customers will benefit from longer machine service lives and have an extremely flexible solution with a wide range of applications regarding weight and workpiece type at their disposal.

With the Turn/Mill-Assist series, EMCO offers different standard automation solutions, each of which comes with specific features. Each model – Turn/Mill-Assist Essential and Turn/Mill-Assist 200/270 – offers a wide range of robot payloads as well as options and modular expansions.

Options and modular expansions — EMCO's Turn/Mill series includes a range of standard products, standard options, and modular expansions. With these components, every operator can compile his or her own, customized automation solution: additional features such as turning units, devices for placing the finished parts onto Euro-pallets or an axis extension for the handling of shaft-type components are available. It is even possible to operate the solution together with a bar loader.

New machine design — The repositioning of the EMCO brand, as reflected by its commitment to remain “beyond standard,” also is being implemented in the machines' design.

The new machines display a functional and visual upgrade reflected in a variety of design changes: In order to ensure efficient processes, user-friendliness and a clear arrangement, the machines' main interaction areas (such as the work area) have been highlighted in both color and shape. The operating panel comes with homogeneous aluminum surfaces, ergonomically adjustable controls, and an intuitive user interface. The housing features a reduced and precise design. Clean contours and precise joint patterns convey superior product quality. In order to keep track of the different product classes, price levels and equipment options also are reflected in the design features.

The machine design also is meant to convey the company's conscious decision to go beyond what is standard and thus fulfil its commitment to quality, maximum precision, and efficiency in turning and milling operations.
