The significant characteristics of the Flexturn are:
The flexibility to suit production from either bar stock, forging, or casting.
The part turning axis (-C-) can be used as machining (turning) or positioning (rotating) axis to execute drilling, threading, and/or inclined milling operations.
The machine tooling position is in the upper and/or radial position in each station. Each station has a motorized (driven) tool for milling and/or drilling and various turning tools. Swiss style turning/machining can be employed.
The part can be automatically rotated and re-clamped in the machine in order to machine both sides of the part like a sub-spindle lathe. The machine unloads one or two finished parts each table index.
The machine is ergonomic with great accessibility that leads to considerable reductions in tool change time.
