MMS SEPTEMBER 2018 152 IMTS 2018 Products On Display Milling Spindle Suits Heavy Cutting Applications WFL Millturn Technology's M120 MillTurn machining center accommodates machining lengths ranging from 78" to 315" and offers a swing ranging to 48". Along with up to 168 hp and 8,680 foot-pounds of torque in the main spindle, high feed rates on all axes are said to enhance dynamics and productivity. The 74-hp, direct- drive milling spindle maximizes power even at low speeds, suiting it to large drills and milling cutters. The clamping forces of the B axis enable the use of damped boring bars with a diameter-to-length ratio of up to 1-to- 14. A separate pickup magazine is available for heavy inner diameter tools ranging to 5 ft. in length and weigh- ing 320 lb; another is available for tools ranging to 8 ft. The company is also featuring its WFL Data Analyzer, which calculates figures such as machine and produc- tivity data, as well as its upgraded CrashGuard Studio simulation and programming software. | WFL Millturn Technologies GmbH & Co. KG South, Level 3, Booth 338666 Eight Cutting Edges Improve Cost Effectiveness Ceratizit's MaxiMill 491 is a series of double-sided, 90-degree shoulder milling inserts with eight useable cutting edges. The tools are designed for ease of han- dling and to be quickly changed inside the machine, reducing downtime. The inserts' coating technology promotes stable and soft cutting, making them suitable for most requirements, the company says. Positive insert geometry and good surface quality extend tool life. The eight cutting edges of the inserts also contrib- ute to cost effectiveness. | Ceratizit USA Inc. | West, Level 3, Booth 432426 Optimizing machine tools through automation KR QUANTEC series Where accuracy of the machine tool is not required, the robot takes over tasks such as drilling, brushing and deburring of the machine. This reduces the spindle run time per part. The KR QUANTEC offers maximum dynamic response coupled with extreme stiffness and high per performance. With its perfect balance between payload capacity and reach, there is no other product like it on the market – it offers maximum performance from every position. 1-800-459-6691 Visit us in the North Building Booth #236200
