The SE 386 machining centre combines maximum stability, increased drive power to optimise machining times, quick rapid feeds, good accessibility to all components a clear design and maximum flexibility.
The basic concept is that one manufacturing cell consists of two machining modules. Each machining module basically consists of the tool area with a horizontally mounted, highly dynamic work spindle which can be moved along the X, Y and Z axes and a tool magazine along with the workpiece area with a swivel unit, horizontal swivel axis, and four clamping places with free chip fall.
To supply tools, each work spindle is equipped with a tool magazine with 30 places in the form of a plate magazine for the HSK80 tool taper.
Each machining module is assigned to a swivel table with horizontal swivel axis. There are two times two NC indexing tables arranged next to each other with individual drives as workpiece clamping places located on each swivel table. As additional workpiece clamping, there are clamping elements located at both sides of the workpiece which clamp the workpiece during machining. To turn the workpiece, it is clamped at the top and bottom and rotated with the rotary table. Two indexing tables are always in the work area of the machine while the second pair is ready in the loading station for workpiece changing. In this way, workpiece changing is done during machining.
This machining concept is especially well suited for the machining of long steel supports on all four sides without reclamping.
