The new MIND-L 1000 from EMAG eldec: Lower cost of investment and increased productivity in induction hardening

Precisely timed cycles, extremely accurate heating patterns and perfect integration in the production process—the advantages that induction hardening provides propel the implementation of the process in many application areas in the automotive industry: An increasing number of drive train, steering, transmission and engine components are induction hardened. Against this background, the newly developed MIND-L 1000 hardening machine from EMAG eldec comes at just the right time: The current generation of vertical rotary table machines handles high-precision hardening of shafts, transmission gears and the like in high volumes. With its modular design, the robust machine can be adapted to the respective production task, easily integrated into production lines or implemented as a standalone solution. Whatever the case may be, the cost of investment is lower, since the machine is more affordable than the previous generation.

EMO 2019— Complete Production Solutions with the VL 1 TWIN: Massively reduce unit costs for planetary and bevel gears

Cost pressure, high quality requirements and demand for huge output volumes—extremes collide in automotive transmission manufacturing. While meeting these demands, production quantities will also projected to continue to rise in the coming years. The authors of the current “Shell Pkw-Szenarien” (Shell Automotive Scenarios) estimate that the global car fleet could more than double to 2.5 billion vehicles by 2050. Consequently, the cost per piece almost inevitably moves as a primary focus for production planners: How can commonly mass-produced transmission components, such as planetary and bevel gears, be produced even more efficiently? The EMAG Group provides a customized answer to this question with the development of the twin-spindle pick-up turning center VL 1 TWIN. It machines two identical components simultaneously in the same machining area. This technology opens up a wide range of possibilities: When two machines are integrated into a line, the planetary gear can be machined from two sides—and all that within shorter cycle times. What exactly does the line solution for planetary and bevel gears look like?

VLC 200 GT from EMAG: Combining technologies to machine state-of-the-art transmission components

It is no secret that e-mobility is a growing market. A current study by the consulting firm Strategy Analytics, predicts the production output of “electric vehicles” will increase to 25% of the global market by 2025. It should be noted that the study uses “electric” as an umbrella term that covers all aspects of e-mobility, i.e. hybrids, fuel cell drives, and pure electric vehicles, and that the markets are highly heterogeneous. It is expected that 50% of the production will take place in China, and the other 50% will be throughout the rest of the world. Heterogeneous markets means multiple manufacturers, even more models, and diverse drive concepts. In addition, about three quarters of vehicles will continue to have traditional combustion engines.  This puts production planners and automotive industry suppliers in a difficult situation: How do you manage this product diversity and increasing production volumes? For many years, EMAG has been providing answers to these questions with a broad range of production solutions for components used mainly in powertrain applications.

HLC 150 H by EMAG KOEPFER: All-round gear-cutting solution for more flexibility and lower cost

More than ever, planners in the automotive industry are faced with the crucial challenge of flexibility in production technology. Manufacturers continually need to cope with modified ranges of components. For instance, the geometry can change very quickly. For gear cutting in particular, this development can reach new planetary gears with a length of up to 500 millimeters. It features all relevant gear cutting technologies such as gear hobbing, skiving, screw milling, worm skiving and chamfering. Workpieces up to module 3 can be finished without burrs, meeting high quality requirements. You could hardly ask for more flexibility in gear production.

PI 800—Modular (P)ECM Machine: Completing complex machining tasks very efficiently with an electrochemical process

Anyone who has had a closer look at the ECM process knows that it is an innovative technology. In order to make manufacturing with (P)ECM even more accessible, EMAG ECM, headquartered in Gaildorf, near Schwäbisch Hall in Germany, has developed a new machine—the PI 800—which boasts a modular and compact design.

Laser Cleaning Machine of EMAG LaserTec

LC 4-2 Laser Cleaning Machine for implementation in Manufacturing Lines or as a Standalone Machine
EMAG LaserTec is known first and foremost for highly productive laser welding systems. The focus is indeed on the word “system”: In addition to the actual welding process, steps that occur upstream or downstream of the welding are frequently integrated as well. Proper cleaning of the workpieces prior to welding is an important process step, as this determines the resulting quality. Impurities from upstream processes (such as coolants or residues of forming processes), as well as preservatives or surface treatments such as phosphatized coatings are “poison” for the welding process and have to be removed (without affecting the process reliability) in order to create high-quality welded joints. Currently, the commonly used and accepted method is a washing process, usually with water-based cleaning agents, in a so-called three-zone washing machine (the process steps are washing, rinsing and drying). However, this process is not desirable.
