The New 4-axis vertical lathe models “WN24-T4” are IMT Intermato’s answer to the increased market demand for the machining of large diameter light alloy aluminium wheels both for the SUV automobile market and the industrial vehicle market.
The simultaneous use of dual machining tools guarantees contained machining times and compensation of the tool cutting forces during machine operation, hence the machines produce exellent roundness and balancing of the machined wheel. With the use of semi-automatic pallet loading system, the loading of the wheel is completed outside of the machining area allowing easy and safe operation, even when machining heavier wheels.
The loading times, regardless of weight or difficulty, do not affect the floor-to-floor cycle times. The machines can operate either as stand-alone or as part of a fully automated machining line, which requires minimum man-power.
