SORALUCE to showcase the SORALUCE TA-D 20 5-axis machining centre at the la EMAF 2018

SORALUCE will be present at this edition of the EMAF (Oporto, Portugal) with Tecmill, its national distributor in Portugal, in the Hall 2 Stand A02.

SORALUCE to showcase the new bed type milling machine with incorporated rotary table SORALUCE TA-D 20.

The machine features a rotary table of 1,250 x 1,250 mm with load capacity for parts of up to 7,500 kg and accuracy rotational of ±1.

In addition, the machine is equipped with a vertical high-speed continuous positioning head (±92º) with an integrated high capacity motorspindle of 25 kW at 15,000 rpm for continuous machining on 5 axes.

The use of 5 axes facilitates work on parts with a complex geometry and surface, reducing the number of part set-ups and configuration times and improving the precision of the operations on different machining planes.

Given the extensive variety of combinations of the linear axes (X, Y, Z) and rotary elements (head, table), it gives us a greater amplitude in the angle, covering the greatest number of machining situations and greater operational versatility.

The machine also features the ACCURA HEADS technology by SORALUCE. ACCURA HEADS makes it possible to compensate the head articulation positioning deviation for one position of the head. It allows compensation of the head´s kinematic values in specific angular head positions. This option gives the machine maximum accuracy as the measurement cycle is carried out just before the milling operation.

The machine is equipped with complete enclosure that integrates two front sliding doors and one at the back on the left, facilitating access to the work area from the front and rear. The CNC control (Heidenhain ITNC 530 HSCI) is incorporated into in a hanging button pad arm that can be positioned to work from either the front or rear of the machine, as per customer preference, thus providing suitable control over the entire operation.

In the mould and die industry, mainly for the automotive sector, SORALUCE provides high stock removal capacity and high precision finishing results. Within its wide range, SORALUCE propose bed type milling machines and floor type milling boring machines ensuring versatility and efficiency results.

SORALUCE provides automatic universal heads and motor spindles for multiple milling and drilling operations, allowing machining from raw blocks, machining in roughing and finishing, machining in finish by interpolation and deep drilling operations of moulds and mould-holders in vertical or horizontal positions.
