Mikron Provides Machining Flexibility

September 16, 2016 / , Editor-in-Chief Production Machining

In a business environment where efficiency is more important than ever, manufacturers are continually looking for new ways to optimize their production processes. Achieving higher volume at a reasonable per-piece cost without a loss in quality is a common goal across diverse industries. Visitors to Mikron Machining’s Booth S-8481 will find representatives ready to demonstrate how the company’s new XT-one machining center can help improve efficiencies and lower the cost per part while maintaining high-quality standards.

The XT-one’s two independent working spindles enable it to work alternatively: while one spindle is machining the other is changing the cutting tool, even at maximum spindle speed. Booth guests will also learn about its chip-to-chip capability of 0.9 second; the machine’s two independent spindles, configured as needed to 15,000 and 40,000 rpm; its two fixtures for parallel operations such as machining and loading; and the possibility of simultaneous production of different components. In addition, the system is expandable to as many as four working modules, and it has a six-face machining capability on workpieces ranging in size to approximately 8 square inches.

With production facilities in Switzerland and Germany, Mikron Machining’s U.S. headquarters is located in Monroe, Connecticut.
