The Agilus 180TH features a universal and highly productive multi-functional concept capable of machining shaft and disk-shaped workpieces in a single setup (one-piece flow).
This machine provides state-of-the-art technology and machining processes for all kinds of cylindrical gears which can be produced by hobbing. The tool turret for locating fixed or driven tools allows turning, drilling and milling operations as well as hobbing and subsequent generating chamfering and deburring to be performed in the same setting. The CNC-controlled tailstock enables the machine to clamp a broad range of workpieces with support on both sides to guarantee optimum rigidity during machining.
Gleason's Quik-Flex® workholding concept, the quick-clamp option for the cutting tool and optimal accessibility satisfy requirements for rapid, user-friendly workpiece change.
The Agilus 180TH can be operated fully automatic in conjunction with one or more turning cells. This innovative concept allows complete manufacturing tasks to be performed within a small, compact footprint.
