GF Machining Solutions, the Milling, EDM and Laser Texturing machine tool manufacturer and supplier of automation system solutions, has strengthened its machine tool range with the introduction of the new, Swiss-made Mikron MILL P 800 U (Simultaneous Turning) ST – a machine that provides customers with high-productivity and high-efficiency milling and turning capabilities.
GF Machining Solutions, widely respected and recognised for its innovative machine tool solutions has developed the gantry-type MILL P 800 U ST machine specifically for small and medium sized precision component manufacturers looking to improve their productivity by getting more out of their machine tool investments.
By combining two technologies (milling and turning) in one machine, the compact MILL P 800 U ST (with its 3.5m x 3.0m footprint), is inherently versatile and its size means it is easy to install and integrate into most production environments. Furthermore because the MILL P 800 U ST can effectively do the job of two machines, it effectively delivers more productivity per square metre of production space.
Although the MILL P 800 U ST is classed as being ‘compact’, the machine has an impressive 800mm X-axis travel, an 800-rpm C-axis rotation speed and a maximum table load of 800kg.
The ability to access milling and turning technologies in one machine helps make manufacturers more efficient.
Production bottlenecks and job set-up and cycle times are reduced because the machining of parts like compressor housings for aircraft, which require both turning and milling technologies to be employed to produce completed parts, can be machined in one hit. Being able to fully machine components on a single machine also eliminates transfer-related part run-out and errors.
