You often hear the phrase “the world moves fast” – and for us this quote definitely applies! Technology is certainly developing at an overwhelming speed: Self-driving cars and completely networked “intelligent” factories are the results of this unbelievable pace of innovation.
Maximum flexibility is required for gear production. EPS steering is a good example: Production planners for this application are looking for machines that can efficiently and completely cut an EPS steering gear including steering pinion, worm gears, and screws. The HLC 150 H horizontal gear cutting machine from EMAG KOEPFER is the perfect solution for this.
For EMAG, California is an exciting and growing market. To showcase our diverse product range to customers and potential customers on the West Coast, we’re very excited to be exhibiting at Westec 2017!
This September, EMAG is excited to celebrate our 150 year anniversary. In 1867, EMAG was founded in Bautzen, Saxony. Initially, EMAG was established as an iron foundry and engineering works center.
Over the years, EMAG continued to grow and by 1952 was re-established in Eislingen, Baden- Württemberg. At this point, business has evolved and EMAG focused on the manufacturing of lathes and special purpose equipment.
On Saturday, August 19 EMAG L.L.C. hosted our annual customer and employee appreciation event at the Woodward Dream Cruise in Bloomfield Hills, MI.
The EMAG Inverted Spindle Pick-Up Lathe process provides for a significant improvement in accuracy versus that of a sub-spindle lathe.
Lathes with sub-spindles pass a part from one rigid work holding system to another. This does not allow for any misalignment of the two spindles. The first spindle cannot release a part until the second spindle has a secure grip on it. Allowing for mismatches on a split turned dimension such as a bore. The accuracy and quality of the workpieces that are produced from this system are compromised because of this process.
CVT transmissions are becoming increasingly popular in the American and Asian markets. The technology improves driving comfort as the car shifts gears more smoothly. A critical part of manufacturing these transmissions is the creation of the CVT components like shafts and disks (“pulleys”) that need to be hard machined with extreme precision– all as part of a multi-stage process that uses various turning centers and grinding machines.
When a leading tier 1 automotive manufacturer came to EMAG and asked us to meet their goals and needs for new differential lines, we had our work cut out for us. One of the unique promises made by EMAG is the company’s ability to achieve each customer’s needs. With this customer, their needs/goals included:
The automotive world is constantly changing and improving. The industry strives to create vehicles with better fuel economy, while also increasing safety and reliability.
The introduction of hybrid and electric alternatives are becoming more popular, and in the years to come we will see these options continue to grow. With this change, certain components of today’s gas driven engines will be replaced with new components and technologies.
At EMAG, we know that the manufacturing market on the East Coast is an important one and with that in mind, we decided to plunge into EASTEC 2017 – and we’re so happy we did!
