With the new “iControl” process monitoring system, WFL gives the future machine operator a whole bundle of functions to ensure reliable and economical production, particularly in series production. On the one hand, the machine and tools should be used with maximum productivity; on the other hand, the process should run as stably and reliably as possible. The software package that WFL provides for this is extremely diverse and offers a suitable monitoring tool for practically every processing situation.
At EMO Milan WFL was presenting the new M20 MILLTURN complete machining center for the first time. The most ground-breaking aspect, however, is the machine’s new design. The continuous toughened-glass front features an integrated performance data display and a touch panel for conveniently operating the tool magazine from the front of the machine.
Universal machining solutions are also possible with the new generation of the M50-G MILLTURN, with greater axis distance and improved performance. The optional centre distance of 6000mm enables efficient machining of long shaft parts. The machine’s existing potential is fully utilised, particularly in terms of the increased drive power, combined with the HSK-A100 or Capto C8 tool accommodation. A separate pick-up magazine is also available for very long and/or heavy tools. Workpieces with a length of 1600mm can be automatically inserted and changed.
The M20 MILLTURN has been celebrating its world première at EMO in October 2021. The aim when developing the M20 was to introduce a particularly robust machine with the highest possible long-term accuracy. The machine frame is made from spheroidal graphite iron, ensuring optimal stability plus outstanding damping properties. This also means heavy roughing cuts can be made without compromise. The most ground-breaking aspect, however, is the machine’s new design. The continuous toughened-glass front features an integrated performance data display and a touch panel for conveniently operating the tool magazine from the front of the machine.
MTDCNC caught up with Simon Pollard from Kyal Machine Tools at EMO Milan 2021 on WFL’s stand. Simon explains that their new M20 launch gives their customers a complete Millturn solution with added benefits like automation and a bottom spindle. The M20 is WFL’s latest concept in ‘smart’ machining which includes new software.
At EMO 2021 in Milan MTDCNC caught up with Simon Pollard (Managing Director of Kyal Machine Tools) to not only discuss a new launch machine from WFL but also of the investment in Steve Malone joining the company as their UK Sales Manager. Steve brings a wealth of experience to Kyal Machine Tools within the machine tool and automation sectors. Also watch out for their new website launching before the end of this year.
