Keeping with the theme of flexibility and productivity, Buffoli Transfer SpA, Brescia, Italy, builds the Omni-Turn transfer machine. This patented mill-turn transfer machine handles heavy turning operations along with milling, angular or transversal drilling, threading, broaching, marking, and gaging. Designed for productivity while maintaining the versatility and quick-changeover capabilities necessary for batch processing, machining operations are processed in a single clamping, not sequentially as in traditional transfer machines. Several independent lathes permit parallel processing while being fed by an internal manipulator, keeping cycle times short. In the meantime, the transfer machine is used for previous or subsequent operations, allowing for the complete machining of particularly complex parts.
