IMTS: 2016: EMAG Brings Machine Tool Variety to the Show

June 29, 2016
From the vertical pick-up lathes for which the company is known worldwide, to advanced crankshaft grinding, multiple spindle turn/grind machines and new technologies including electro-chemical and laser, the EMAG family of machines will be on display at Booth N-6834 in the Gear Pavilion. Technical experts will be available for full explanation of the various machines and manufacturing technologies being presented.    At this year’s show, EMAG will present its extensive and fast-growing family of turning centers, gear generation machines, grinding, milling, vertical turning and boring equipment, plus advanced electro-chemical and laser welding machines, as well as heat treatment.   A variety of machines will be on display in the booth, running under power, plus we’ll have experts in all the various technologies we offer, available for discussions. EMAG is a family of global machine companies that includes the proprietary-branded and popular vertical turning machines, as well as Eldec, Naxos-Union, Koepfer, Reinecker, Laser Tec, ECM, Kopp and Karstens.  The company today often integrates a variety of machines into work cell arrangements at major automotive, off-highway and other power transmission component suppliers.  

Booth N-6834

Machines on Display:

  • The VL 4 is a modular vertical lathe with integrated automation, designed for maximum production at low cost per piece with a small footprint.  A pick-up spindle moves in the X- and Z-axes with 12 driven tools on a turret to cut and index parts up to 200mm (7.87”) in the shortest time possible.  The pass-thru rotary conveyor keeps blanks incoming and machined parts outgoing.  Machines can be equipped with a Y-axis for more complex geometries. 

  • The VM 9 combines turning, milling and drilling into a single machine for large part production.  With the workpiece spindle in the bottom of the cutting theatre, the VM 9 offers a turning diameter of 450mm (17.71”), max. workpiece height of 300mm (11.81”) and max workpiece weight to 300kg (660 lbs).  

  • The VT 2-4 performs dual-sided shaft machining in high-production mode with dual 11-position tool turrets for fixed or driven tools.  Workpieces to 200mm dia. (7.87”) and 630mm length (24.80”).

  • The eldec MIND-M 250 is a compact hardening system for basic heat treatment of chucked parts and shafts, provided by the eldec group of EMAG.  Heat treatment tasks are performed at 30kW in high frequency applications and 100kW in medium frequency.  Workpieces to 10kg (22 lbs).  

  • The EMAG booth will also feature a blisk (bladed disk) display to demonstrate the Precision Electro-Chemical Machining (PECM) technology now offered to the aerospace, pump and power generation markets.
