DETAIL OF MACHINE BASE
The machine Trans-N-Center ULTRA-52 is a high productivity flexible machine weighing 90 tons. It is equipped with 52 spindles on 3-axis slides , with 12 CNC rotating chucks and 5 CNC recessing heads for a total of 167 controlled axes. At EMO 2015 we will present a TECHNOLOGY TOUR of 168 sqm through the latest innovations for the flexible manufacture of forgings/castings or machined parts from non-rotating bars, together with a series of precision applications, especially in the automotive field and with the latest management and diagnostics software designed by Buffoli to offer your next installation the maximum reliability and efficiency.
plus
DETAIL OF ROTATING CHUCKS
The machine Trans-N-Center ULTRA-52 is equipped with 12 CNC rotating chucks that allow the part rotation on 360°. All the six faces of the part can be machined thanks to the possibility to operate with double clamping, both with single or double table indexing. The part loading, unloading and repositioning is performed by means of a high efficiency robotized system. The machine is hyper-flexible and can work extremely complex parts within a cube of 200mm side with differently inclined machining operations.
plus
DETAIL OF MODULES
The machine is equipped with 22 CNC 3-axis modules (X, Y, Z) with 1, 2 or 3 independent spindles, as shown in the picture above, for a total of 52 spindles mounted on cross slides. The tool change is performed in less than 1 second chip-to-chip.
plus
DETAIL OF RECESSING HEADS
On all modules can be installed the Buffoli recessing heads of high precision or other foreheads for special machining operations.

EMO Milano 2015At EMO 2015 we presented a TECHNOLOGY TOUR of 168 sqm through the latest innovations for the flexible manufacture of forgings/castings or machined parts from non-rotating bars, together with a series of precision applications, especially in the automotive field and with the latest management and diagnostics software designed by Buffoli to offer your next installation the maximum reliability and efficiency.

EMO 2015 Milan 5-10 October 2015
HALL 5 - BOOTH D03



In the BUFFOLI TECHNOLOGY TOUR we showed an innovative 4-independent-spindles Patented Module with tool change in 0.7 sec (2 sec chip-to-chip at 12000 rpm).

For purposes of flexibility, we also presented some solutions for tool change from magazine since many years used to realize both multi-center machines with supported and horizontal spindles and multi-center machines with suspended table and vertical spindles as well as flexible turning machines. These machines can manufacture complex parts up to 600mm cube or highly precise shafts up to 800mm in length.

For longer shafts the Buffoli production program includes also linear transfer machines fed by bars.
We will exhibit a series of CNC rotating jaws, also in continuous. And a continuous rotating chuck driven by torque motors.                                                                    

A section of the booth will concern the units, from the standard ones with the Buffoli features of precision and centering to the motor spindles and the Heavy Duty operating units.

In the tour will be also presented the compact module MPM (Multi-Process Module) with 3 spindles and 3-axis tool change in only 0.4 seconds chip-to-chip. It is based on a patented rotating hydrostatic sleeve which allows to realize a module with 3 axes X, Y, Z exceptionally compact. It allows to make in a single unit up to three short operations, without affecting the total cycle time.
So far we have mainly spoken of flexibility and reduced cycle times, but among the subjects discussed in the Technology Tour there  will be especially the precision that better characterize the Buffoli machines, together with the great experience in the production of precision machines for automotive sector and of turn-key machines from bars for the machining of complex parts.

The Buffoli machines produce automotive parts of high precision - such as engine components, transmission, suspension, steering, brake systems, hinges, pumps, filters ... - but also precision valves, pneumatic and hydraulic components, components for locks ... and a variety of turned parts, from the simplest that require extreme productivity and efficiency to the most complex, that require precision and flexibility.
