Technical highlights Optional: Integrated loading-and unloading handling for main-& counter spindle The MultiCenter disposes of an integrated loading-and unloading handling with a NC-axis for precise approach of both spindle noses. Workpieces are picked-up from main-and counter spindle by means of grippers. The pickup is carried out outside the machine tool right side. This enables a smooth process. Two guide rails in combination with four carriages provide for stability. The modular design allows various gripper configurations to customize requirements. There are different gripper options...

Rotational turning Gear cutting (hobbing) With the rotation turning process developed and patented by WEISSER, precisely machined surfaces can be generated with twist-free finishing precision and thus replace the expensive grinding operations. The simultaneous rotation of workpiece and tool cutting edge reduces the machining time by up to 77 % compared with hard turning. Integration of a hobbing module, being the only method to manufacture internal and external gearings with different helix angles and directions in a single machining center. This manufacturing process combines hobbing and...
