Machining small batches requires a high degree of flexibility. However, short setup times are also a prerequisite for cost-effective production. STAMA Maschinenbau GmbH believed that its mill/turn centers had the potential to achieve just that. These highly flexible machining systems process all six sides of a workpiece in a single work cycle. Built-in and ready-to-install solutions from Festo handle the tool change in the additional magazine as well as loading and unloading the workpieces.
