3 MACHINES READY TO RUN
We hereby announce the demonstration of our latest technology with three of our newest generation machines during week 50. (10-15 December 2001).Our demonstration highlights: Flexibility, Rotating Jaws, Cross Slides, Compact and Fast 4-Axis Multi-Process Modules, Machining from bar or from blanks, 47 CNC Controlled Axes on one Machine, 6 Direction machining in one clamping, Robot with vision system and automatic unloading of defective blanks.
OUR NEWEST GENERATION OF TRANSFER MACHINES FOR MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY
During the Open House we will be making chips on the following machines:
Furthermore we will also display our highly advanced Buffoli CNC multiprocessor
NEW Flexible Transfer for high production with the following characteristics:
- 10 rotating jaws CNC programmable;
- 13 cross slides;
- 23 ball screw units;
- Inclinable units;
- Double independent units;
- 47 CNC controlled axes.
Tooled up for the machining of a wide range of valve bodies, collectors, Tee's and elbows, with complex profiles for quick connections. The machine offers two part processing options:
a) The part is programmed normally and the machine completes up to 5 direction machining in one complete rotation of the turret;
b) The second option allows 6 directions to be machined in two complete rotations of the turret.
NEW BUFFOLI TRANS-N-CENTER is a new innovative concept of transfer machine. It is a "design concept" that integrates high production modules and flexible modules achieving the goal of machining a vast range of parts with transfer machine cycle times. It's advantages include: short cycle times, wide versatility, ease of programming and high precision machining in one clamping. The machine is composed of:
- CNC Rotating Chucks capable of executing programmed rotations;
- CNC 4-Axis Multi-Process module extremely compact and fast (tool positioning within 0.3-0.5 sec.) able to drill, tap or perform any interpolated milling operations;
- Special CNC profiling heads, able to carry out turning, recessing and single-point threading operations of high precision.
The combination of several modules Multi-PROcess and Multi-PROfile, placed around a rotating turret together with CNC programmable rotating chucks, guarantee a Transfer machine that is exceptionally flexible, and suitable for machining a varied family of parts. This eliminates secondary operations, ensuring high production levels, and at the same time, high quality parts in only one clamping.
Multi-Spindle Transfer machine for machining from
NON-ROTATING DOUBLE BAR
For the machining of valves, faucets as well as complex parts starting from bar stock of diameter 45 mm (or 75 mm).
Transfer machines of the TRANS-BAR cnc flex series machine in 2 or 3 directions (or more if custom made), starting from non-rotating bar stock of any profile and material. Manufactured in single and double bar versions (up to 8 parts/cycle and over 10.000 parts/hour). The double bar version TRDB45, which will be displayed at Buffoli, is composed of 8 stations and 12 CNC spindles.
Buffoli Transfer has introduced and developed the Bar Transfer machines over the course of the last twenty years, becoming a specialist and world leader. In our many years of experience we have installed in all the five continents more than 100 bar machines.
