Buffoli Trans-N-Center is a new innovative concept in transfer machines.
It is a "design concept" that integrates high
production modules and flexible modules
achieving thegoal of machining a wide range of parts with transfer machine
Its advantages include: short cycle times, exceptional versatility,
of programming and high precision machining in one clamping.
Precision CNC indexing chucks
capable of executing programmed rotations;
CNC 3-4 axes multi-process
modules extremely compact and fast (tool positioning within 0.3-0.6
sec.) able to drill, bore, tap or perform any interpolated milling operations
(Buffoli Multi-PROcess modules);
Buffoli special CNC profiling heads,able to carry out turning, recessing and single-point threading
operations of high precision with standard inserts (Buffoli Multi-PROfile
CNC Programmable inclination and translation
of the spindles.
The combination of several
modules Multi-PROcess and Multi-PROfile,
placed around a rotating turret equipped with CNC programmable indexing
chucks, guarantees a transfer machine that is exceptionally flexible, and
suitable for machining a varied family of parts. This eliminates secondary
operations, ensuring high production levels, and at the same time, high
quality parts in only one clamping.
TRANS-N-CENTER machines are simultaneously transfer machines, machining
centers and turning centers and are capable of single clamping machining
of complex parts. Complete change over between 15 and
Short operations can be
incorporated into our patented Multi-Process Centers with tool
change in 0.3-0.6 sec. They are compact Multi-axis modules, with up
to 4 different tools, capable of discrete machining processes performed
sequentially or randomly (e.g. centerdrill, tapdrill, tap or any kind
of interpolated milling). They allow the reduction of the number
of spindles and of the machine size; thus improving process capability,
set-up time and machine versatility.
