Chang'an Automobile decided to handle the comprehensive turning, drilling and grinding work required for this critical engine part with a multi-stage production line from EMAG that performs all of the machining processes vertically, a process that offers many benefits.
An overview of the company and its organization, products, services and capabilities.
In a typical production machine shop, the processing capabilities required can vary greatly between applications: some value power and torque over rpm, others value spindle speed more than torque or power. To ensure the highest level of productivity in all cases, all of these factors must be evaluated when considering a new investment in a vertical machining center.
The Lotus F1 Team invested in six high-performance, cost-effective Mikron HPM 450U 5-axis machine tools with integrated automation to produce its precision, complex F1 car parts in low quantities. These replaced 3-axis milling machines that were not performing at the desired productivity levels.
