Machine Concept [Content -Only Text Element with 2 column]

AM - a successful concept in the fifth generation

The AM is the result of cooperation with the German machine manufacturer ELHA . Here, as the base a proven base engine , more than 300 pieces are from the currently operating successfully , used .

His many years of experience taking advantage , ALFING has this type of machine specially adapted and developed for connecting rod . Thus, the AM Manufacturing module provides advanced technology in all respects.

Construction / Design Features [Image 3-Columns with Grey Background]

Hydrostatic Rundpinole

Hydrostatic Rundpinole

The centerpiece of the AT 's their hydrostatic Rundpinole . It is characterized by high rigidity and integrates the feed movement in the Z- axis coincides with the rotational movement in the C- axis. Compared to the previously used parallel linear guides , which are biased due to their static overdetermination and therefore subject to wear , the Rundpinole has the advantage that they practically do not wear out and can not be adjusted . The oil film of the hydrostatic sleeve bearing results in high attenuation of the process and a decoupling of workpiece vibration and machine .

The Kragarmkonzept

The Kragarmkonzept

Quick load paths and short levers give high rigidity . The operations take place in the retracted Pinole mainly . Thus, the projection length corresponds largely to the standard length of the quill .

Success Factors AM Production Module Overview [Content-Image 2 column]

High productivity

The quick change between the processing steps and high accelerations and travel speeds are the basis for excellent production performance.

Flexible use

You want to switch production to another Pleueltyp? With the AM They are flexible. Often enough the hardware side, a new device and new tools to convert the machine to another Pleueltyp. Take to the extensive process know-how of Alfing. Even the replacement or supplement of tool spindles is possible.

Security in access and good view

The editing room for AM is accessible through a door from the front. The tools and workpieces are sure to achieve without the dangerous area between the tools and workpiece carriers must be entered. During processing, it has good visibility through the glass door to the machining process.

Time savings in construction and conversion

The AM is a crane hook machine with integrated circuit technology. PICK and PLACE - when loading or switching is thus only once the entire machine to take on the hook. The integration of circuitry reduces the installation effort.

optimize chip disposal

The arrangement of the tools on the sides and the ceiling of the treatment space allows at any time a free chip fall. From processing space allow any chips into the hermetically delimited engine room.

Cheap temperature behavior

The good temperature characteristics of the AT makes additional cooling measures, such as a stator cooling unnecessary. A heat input by hot chips is prevented by the rapid removal from the machine.

Cutting with retracted Z-axis for maximum precision

The processing spindles are arranged at right angles to the Z-axis. Thus, the Z-axis must be extended by a maximum of the depth gauge. Most operations are possible with retracted axis.

Lower energy consumption, less wear and tear

The waiver tool change also means lower energy consumption per processed workpiece. The tools are hidden time accelerated and decelerated in the AM. Compared to a processing center, these processes can therefore be made more energy efficient and less prone to wear. The optimal design of the spindle sizes of the tools used brings a further energy savings.

Connecting Rods [Content- Text+Image 2-Columns]

connecting rod without changing tools

For each machining step, a dedicated spindle series - this is the machine principle of AM. A tool change is not necessary to account for tool change times. The advantages of this concept: high productivity and low energy consumption

.

ideals process design

In the individual process design the longstanding expertise of Alfing in the connecting rod comes to fruition. In this way, the performance potential of the machine is fully utilized.

All machining in one clamping

tool spindles may be mounted on two sides and the ceiling of the processing space in the AM. Therefore, it is possible to perform pre-processing in one clamping and screw hole machining or complete finishing. And in an optimized installation space.

chip-to-chip time under one second

Unlike a machining center no tool change is in the AM in the operation required. The chip-to-chip time of less than one second in superposed rows of spindles.

Beladung und Automatisierung [Content -Only Text Element with 2 column]

Beladung und Automatisierung

Ob manuell oder automatisiert: Flexibilität und Vielseitigkeit bei der Beladung. Die AM kann für eine Beladung von vorn, von rechts oder von links ausgeführt werden. Für die Beladung von vorn wird ein Roboter eingesetzt.

Bei der seitlichen Beladung kommt ein Shuttle zum Einsatz, das durch eine zusätzliche Öffnung in den Arbeitsraum fährt. Beide Systeme können manuell oder automatisiert bestückt werden. Eine Automatisierung ist ohne nachträglichen Umbau möglich.
