smaller and larger mill-turns is that a total of four three-axis modules can be mounted from the top of the ICON 6-250 machine so that there can be two spindles cutting simulta- neously on the workpieces at four positions in unison. Each 6-150 or 6-250 machine has four CNC rotary


tables installed on stations 2, 3, 5, and 6 with position ac- curacy of ±4 sec. Each table is equipped with an EROWA zero-point clamping system to securely and accurately clamp the base pallet to the table with pallet positional repeatability of less than 0.002 mm. Workpieces are se-


tion, they are transferred to fi ve other stations for cutting or auxiliary operations. With processes spread over four cutting stations, cycle times are greatly reduced yielding higher productivity in a smaller footprint over multiple stand-alone machining cells,” said Boswell.

center from Methods Machine Tools Inc. (Sudbury, MA) features complete parts machining in one operation with a built-in load/unload automation system and advanced operator recognition man- agement software. “The NTRX-300 off ers state-of-the-art multitasking, automation, and software all in a compact heavy-duty machine,” said James Kucharski, national sales manager. “The NTRX-300 has the ver-


satility and fl exibility required for machining aerospace, automotive, medical, and other complex low-volume parts. Smart X Operation software makes it ideal for pro- cessing families of precision parts,” said Kucharski.

Explore the potential of additive manufacturing


Renishaw’s additive manufacturing systems use powder bed fusion technology to produce fully dense complex metal parts direct from 3D CAD.


Also known as 3D printing, this technology is not constrained by traditional manufacturing design rules. Create complex geometries such as conformal cooling channels for tooling


inserts, reduce component weight by only placing material where it is needed, and consolidate multiple parts in one assembly. Additive manufacturing is also complementary to conventional machining technologies, and directly contributes to reduced lead times, tooling costs and material waste.


 No requirement for tooling.


 Increased design freedom—complex geometries and hidden features.


 Rapid design iterations right up to manufacture.
