Makino offers the Track Pallet Magazine (TPM), which enables companies to reduce setup times, increase machine and spindle utilization, and raise the production capacity of a machine. This machine addition is perfectly suited for low volume and high mix production lines and is easily implemented into any shop.
Part Three: Kyndall Brown concludes our series by having our panel of experts compare how machining different types of materials affects vibration, looking at gear-driven vs. direct drive spindles, and comparing hand-scraping mating surfaces vs. other methods.
Part Two: Kyndall Brown continues a panel discussion on how machine vibration can be monitored through the latest technologies and controlled through spindle design.
Kyndall Brown facilitates a three-part series on how machine controls and structural design are used to damp vibration in machine tools begins by comparing box ways vs. linear guides.
Makino’sTrack Pallet Magazine (TPM) is their latest addition to automation technology, enabling companies to reduce setup times, increase machine and spindle utilization, and raise the production capacity of a machine.
A flexible manufacturing system is traditionally comprised of several similar machining centers, each capable of one type of machining. Makino has demonstrated that different machine types can be easily integrated into a single cell with an automated pallet handling system.
Makino’s MAG series of 5-axis horizontal machining centers are specifically suited to meet the just-in-time manufacturing needs of the aerospace industry.
