LC 4-2 Laser Cleaning Machine: Focused on Fast Cleaning Processes and Optimizing Component Surface Quality

The need for industrial cleaning processes is not uncommon – many parts are contaminated with substances including oil and adhesives, or have undesired layers of oxide, rust, phosphate, or paint that needs to be removed before additional machining processes can take place. With that in mind, production planners are turning their attention to the efficient laser cleaning and coating removal...

VMC 450-5 MT Turning/Milling Center – Five Axes for Dramatically Shorter Machining Processes in the Production of Large Parts

Large components and complex geometries—in heavy machining, this combination is far from rare and is always synonymous with a high expenditure of time and rising costs. A primary reason for this is that the variety of machining processes required, from turning to gear cutting, are typically performed on different machines that are not completely linked with one another. Additionally, the variety...

VL 1 TWIN from EMAG: Drastically Lower Unit Cost for Bevel Gears

Bevel gears found in passenger vehicles are mass-produced. Supply companies produce these gears, essential for differentials, by the million—and it’s no wonder, since there are four of these in every differential. The number of all-wheel-drive vehicles, which include two differentials each, is continuing to rise leading to an increase in bevel gear output volume, and bringing more attention to the...
