DMG MORI’s 2nd Generation ULTRASONIC 20 linear features a new functional design and a reduced footprint of 3.5 m2 with in parallel improved rigidity and dynamics. Spindle rpm has been increased to up to 60.000 min−1 for HSC applications.

The machine also features an optional mill-turn-table with max. 1.500 min−1 for cylindrical grinding operations with advanced materials. Other notable features include:

  • Up to 50 percent increased drive motors (A-axis)
  • A higher table load of 15 kg
  • Tool diameters of up to 50 mm
  • Flexible exchange based on a standard HSK-E32 / HSK-E40 holder
  • Optional high performance spindle (HSK-E 32) for HSC-milling with up to 60,000 min−1 and ULTRASONIC with up to 50,000 min−1

The new ULTRASONIC 20 linear is also now equipped with DMG MORI’s CELOS interface and a newly developed ULTRASONIC App.

The Mikron MILL P 800 U ST (simultaneous turning) from GF Machining Solutions is based on the Mikron HPM 800U.

Complete machining on the Mikron MILL P 800 U ST is intended to establish quicker more accurate work pieces. Needless rechucking results into a more precise runout, faster work piece handling and setup time. The machine can be integrated into production using various automation solutions, which are also compatible with the Mikron HPM 600U/800U series.

The Mikron MILL 800 U ST features travel of 31.496 x 31.496 x 21.654 in (X, Y, Z) and rapid traverse of 61 m/min along the three linear axes.

At IMTS 2016, MC Machinery Systems will be featuring the Android super-precision machine by Roku Roku. At the booth, the company will be demonstrating the Android drilling a .0008 diameter hole. That’s equal to 1/5 the thickness of a human hair. The machine will also be milling a mirror finish into hardened steel.

The Android’s features include:

  • 60,000 RPM spindles
  • Advanced control features for high-precision machining
  • Extensive counter measures for thermal growth
  • 16 monitoring points to achieve accuracies of +/- 1 mm
  • Glass scales on all axes
  • Table sizes from X: 550 mm, Y: 330 mm.

The Okuma GENOS M560-V is designed to be an affordable vertical machining center featuring a high column design for an increased work envelope.

Highly rigid, thermally-stable construction allows this vertical machining center to withstand thermal deformation resulting in reduced thermal growth and improved machining performance.

Max machining volume is 1,050mm x 560mm x 460mm (41.34in x 22.05in x 18.11in) and spindle speed is 15,000 min-1.

According to Okuma, the machine can handle a variety of materials, from titanium to aluminum, and does so without sacrificing finish quality or productivity. The GENOS M560-V is designed on Okuma’s Thermo-Friendly Concept and controlled by an open-architecture OSP-P control.
