Soraluce will celebrate the 22nd Open House

16-11-2011 - 16-11-2011
The BIMATEC-SORALUCE OPEN HOUSE is held annually since 1990 in Limburg , with the attendance of customers from all over Germany and German-East Europe plus the visits and collaboration of usual suppliers and other partners. During the OPEN HOUSE, seven latest generation and technologically advanced machines will be exhibited; six milling-boring machines and one vertical lathe, all of them machining different applications. Bimatec-SoraluceTechnological Centre in Limburg Three models of “T' range milling centres will be shown:
  • Rotary table milling centre model TA-25-D.
  • Bed type milling centre model TA-35-A, with longitudinal stroke of 3500 mm, vertical stroke of 1250 mm and cross stroke of 1000 mm with step-less automatic indexing head indexing at 0,001ºx0,001º with 24 kW at 5000 rpm. The machine is equipped with a frontal tool changing system with magazine prepared for 20 tools.
  • Bed type milling centre model TR-35, with longitudinal stroke of 3500 mm, vertical stroke of 1800 mm and cross stroke of 1300 mm with compact orthogonal head indexing at 1ºx1º with 32 kW at 5000 rpm. The machine is equipped with tool changing system with magazine prepared for 40 tools.
One “S' type fixed table travelling column milling centre:
  • SP-8000 milling centre was shown with the following characteristics:  8000 mm length table, longitudinal stroke of 6500 mm, vertical stroke of 2000 mm and 1500 mm cross travel, equipped with compact orthogonal head indexing at 1ºx1º with 32 kW at 5000 rpm and automatic tool changing system with magazine prepared for 40 tools.
Amongst the F range, three floor type milling machines were exhibited during the open house:
  • FL-7000 model milling machine with 6500 mm longitudinal stroke, 1800 mm vertical stroke and 1200 mm cross stroke.  Machine is equipped with automatic indexing head at 2.5ºx2.5º of 32 kW at 4000 rpm.
  • NEW F-MT milling-turning machine, which has been exhibited in the previous EMO Hannover for first time. This model enables the integration of several processes in one machine: traditional milling machine operations + turning capabilities for heavy duty components, providing the possibility of manufacturing complex components in one machine and in one single setup. Remarkable versatility which leads to effective real time saving and the associated cost savings for end users working for industries such as the aeronautics, energy and precision engineering both for unitary and serial production. This Multi-Task machine can complete all operations in a single setup – turning, milling, boring, drilling, tapping – on very intricate parts for industries such as the aeronautical, energy and precision engineering components, being suitable for unitary and serial production.

The exhibited machine has a longitudinal travel of 3500 mm, vertical travel of 1800 mm and cross travel of 1200 mm with a milling table area of 4000 x 1200 mm. The spindle power goes up to 43 kW and including an automatic indexing head at 1ºx1º of 32 kW at 5000 rpm for milling operations and a turning head of 32kW at 6000 rpm.

  • FR-12000 model milling-boring machine with 12000 mm longitudinal stroke, 3600 mm vertical stroke and 1600 mm cross stroke. Machine is equipped with orthogonal indexing head at 1ºx1º of 46 kW at 4000 rpm, fixed boring horizontal head of 46 kW at 4000 rpm and automatic tool machining system prepared for 80 tools. The machine includes automatic head changing system which provides the machine with the necessary exceptional versatility and enhanced productivity benefits.
One vertical lathe:
  • For third consecutive year at the BIMATEC-SORALUCE Open House, one DANOBAT vertical turning centre will be exhibited: the VTC-2500 with a turning diameter of 2500 mm on a workpiece weighing up to 20 Tn and rotating at speeds up to 260 rev/min. The DANOBAT VTC features excellent accuracy, high production yield and diversity of operations: turning, grinding, milling, drilling and threading. Highly interesting workpieces will be machined on the machine for the visitors.
Additionally, other applications will be shown among the pavilion, showing different applications of SORALUCE milling-boring machines and DANOBAT vertical turning machines for strategic sectors such as energy, ship-building, earthmoving and general machining. As every year, the presence of suppliers will be also remarkable, such as Heidenhain, Siemens, M&H, Vohlhaupter, etc. With over 900 milling-boring machines sold in the German market and with a team of over 50 people, BIMATEC-SORALUCE is a very powerful platform to provide excellent technical, commercial and service support for SORALUCE milling-boring machines and DANOBAT vertical turning centres on the German market. BIMATEC-SORALUCE is a fully customer orientated company. Since 1991, BIMATEC-SORALUCE has created a reference list which includes first class German companies from sectors such as railways, energy generation, transmission systems, moulds & dies, industrial vehicles and general machining.
