The Mikroturn Twin Spindle is our new redesigned “high volume” hard turning machine. Hembrug engineers have succeeded in simplifying the design without having to compromise on functionality and precision. Existing modules of the Mikroturn 100 have been used as much as possible influencing the cost price and production time positively.The hydrostatic main spindles with integrated motors are positioned closer together. This has improved access to the processing space. In addition, both spindles are now loaded directly by a KUKA robot without the addition of a further pivoting system, as was the case in the first generation of the Mikroturn® Twin Spindle. The linear motors in the guide ways have been replaced by high-precision ball screws. These supply the necessary speed and precision, but at much lower cost. The redesign has reduced the price by a third compared to the first generation.
Improving quality requirements, shorter cycle times and a desire for higher productivity requires a process and machine tool capable to meet these demands. Hembrug designs and builds the Mikroturn series of unique, high quality and ultra precision fully hydrostatic machine tools. These machines give you full control over the hard turning process. This process provides greater accuracy, higher productivity, more flexibility and cost savings when compared to cylindrical grinding. These machines are able to achieve form and size accuracies between 0.1 - 2 micron and surface finishes of 0.1 – 0.4 Ra in hardened workpieces up to 68 HRC.
