ZERO GRAVITY DRIVE

SIMPLY TURN THE 3-D UNIT BY 90°, AND THE MASS TO BE MOVED IS CUT IN HALF!

ZERO GRAVITY DRIVE – OR THE OF THE MASSTURN

Due to the turn and the resulting reduction of the mass to be moved – by about half – with the ZERO GRAVITY DRIVE we are able to implement an incomparably dynamic, precise and stable type of spindle movement in all three linear axes.

This kinematic concept is unique among multispindle machining centers. On the one hand it enables the highest efficiency and absolute precision and on the other hand maximum utilization and extreme profitability.

ZERO GRAVITY DRIVE – MOVING THE 3-D UNIT HAS NEVER BEEN SO EASY

  • Shifting the moved mass from the Y-axis to the horizontal X-motion axis
  • highest machining performance and higher model diversity through modular concept
  • Reduction of masses to be moved up and down
  • Lower acceleration and braking forces necessary
  • Increase in energy efficiency
  • Increase of machine dynamics
  • Reduction of machining and idle times
  • Enables “stretch variant” and separate spindle axes X, Y and Z (for 2 spindle version)
  • Modular machine module allows optimum adaptation of the machine to the workpiece

LINEAR DRIVE

  • Higher rapid traverses and axis accelerations, as a result shorter non-productive times
  • Precise positioning
  • Wear free, since contact-free
  • Permanent current consumption and active cooling of primary and secondary parts

Linear drive is ideally suited for multispindle horizontal machining centers. For minimum time loss in the event of lots of machining and positioning operations coupled with frequent tool changes, linear drive technology is an essential element for more productivity.

BALL SCREW DRIVE

  • Robust and reliable design, suitable for very high feed forces
  • Standard drive for machinig centers with a comparatively low power consumption

The ball screw has an attractively high service life and has been continuously improved in development. In the process it combines a reliably stable and compact design.
