Many users of mill-turn centres from Stama are reporting time savings of up to 70% and unit cost reductions of 50%. This is all thanks to the high flexibility of the machines and their virtually negligible setup times. The integrated automation solution from Festo for loading and unloading the workpieces as well as the tool changer in the additional magazine contribute to this success.
The big advantage of machine tools from Stama is that small batch sizes and high-volume series can be processed one after the other in almost any combination. “What makes our mill-turn centres stand out is the fact that workpieces can be fully milled, turned, drilled, reamed, ground, deburred and polished on all six sides in one operating cycle,” explains Gerhard Schweicker, Sales Engineer at Stama. “With our 5-axis processing, the workpiece and tool are freely positioned and swivelled in the working space,” adds the machine expert.
Integrated automation: part loading is carried out by a linear gantry from Festo with suitable grippers.
