Articulated cage

Articulated Cages are processed on VTC 100-4 Vertical Turning Centers

Articulated cages are completed automatically on the 4-axis turning centers of the VTC series. The external turning and the window-milling of articulated cages are done in one clamping operation. The VTC 100-4 vertical turning centers load themselves independently due to integrated automation. This ensures highly efficient production.

4-axis Machining of Articulated Cages

Articulated cages are produced  in high volumes which is perfect for the VTC 100-4 4-axis turning center. Loading and unloading of the machine is done by the turrets. While one workpiece gripper (in the turret) moves a raw part into the machine, the other gripper simultaneously picks up the finished articulated cage. The entire process only takes a few seconds.

Technologies for machining of articulated cages:

  • External turning
  • Milling of windows
  • Soft and hard machining

Advantages of the VTC 100-4 for machining articulated cages

  • Simultaneous production of two cage windows due to 4-axis machining
  • Minimal non-productive time due to simultaneous loading and unloading of articulated cages
  • Integrated automation system and part-storage unit
  • Easily accessible machining area and service units
