Okuma, Events, IMTS
July 3, 2012
When IMTS 2012 opens on September 10 in Chicago’s McCormick Place, Gosiger technical staff will be seen all around the South building, from Gosiger’s own booth (S-9266) to Okuma’s booth S-8500 and Hardinge booth S-8148.
In Gosiger’s booth, the company will display a number of new products from its high-volume line and an interactive display of robotic–based automation solutions. Among the high-volume product lines represented are:
The Gosiger Automation robotic demonstrations include loading and unloading, distinguishing good parts from bad, force sensing (plug & spine), quick change End of Arm Tooling (EOAT) and more. In addition to these live demonstrations, Gosiger Automation will present videos of recent customer installations so visitors may view real-world applications of automation principles.
Experienced Gosiger technical and applications staff will be on hand to answer customer questions about both high-volume products and automation systems.
Gosiger staff will also be present in Okuma booth S-8500 in which the CNC machine company will introduce eight new machines including the MU-10000H, the largest Okuma 5-axis, horizontal, high-speed machining center. This new 5-axis CNC machine has a maximum work piece weight capacity of 5,500 pounds and can accommodate a work piece up to 59.05” in diameter by 44.29” high.
According to Okuma, other new machines to be introduced include:
Hardinge booth S-8148 features workholding products to grip parts to be turned, milled, ground, welded, assembled or positioned in the small-to-medium parts machining industry. Hardinge custom workholding products can increase precision and accuracy; reduce job setup, changeover time & operator handling; eliminate second operations; minimize expensive, bulky fixturing; add flexibility to the machine; solve gripping problems; integrate automation; and reduce the workload of your own engineering staff.
Hardinge has completed over 200,000 custom workholding designs, while offering over 40,000 standard products. Workholding Engineers will be on hand at booth S-8148 to discuss your gripping problems and Hardinge capabilities. You are encouraged to bring your part prints and machine information.
Gosiger’s team of manufacturing productivity specialists look forward to meeting you at IMTS 2012 to help you find the best possible solution for your unique applications.
