Tornos Multispindle by Hydromat introduces the next generation of Tornos CNC multis, the MultiAlpha 6x32. In response to the ever-increasing need for the production of more complex components without secondary operations, Tornos Multispindle by Hydromat solves the issue with the addition of the 3 axis independent counter-spindle with 5 backworking tool positions and the latest in advancement: Integrated Independent Motorspindles.
The MultiAlpha 6x32 unit is a ‘ground-up’ re-design featuring a 1.260” (1.340”) diameter bar capacity with the work spread over 6 spindles. The new MultiAlpha 6x32 is equipped with this latest generation of spindles featuring synchronous motors. Each spindle functions independently of the others for cutting RPM, spindle stops and indexing. The spindles with independent speed settings enable the full range of cutting tools to be employed. This extends tool life and improves the quality of the components produced. With every position potentially being used as a C axis, allowing any positioned transverse milling or drilling operation to be performed at any time and on all spindles. These spindles can be synchronized in angular fashion, meaning that positioned operations such as eccentric drilling can be performed at several different stations. The advantages to this system include; optimum speed on each position in accordance with the type of machining required, unrivalled capacity for stock removal, great flexibility – C axis, “Transmit” function, stopping and exceptional spindle acceleration.
Motorspindles are equally flexible on the frontworking units. To help you achieve maximum flexibility, the end units can be fitted with motorquills. Tornos engineers have used the latest generation of motors for the motorquill units and the motorspindles. Two versions of motorquills are available; the high-performance motorquill delivers high torque starting from its’ lowest speeds, while the high-speed option retains the same torque rating right up to exceptionally high rotational speeds.
