We know your cam controlled Multi-spindle lathes are exceptionally fast and ideal for the mass production of turned parts at short cycle times. And this is why we want you to keep them.
However, the HYCAM (Hybrid Multi-spindle) concept allows you to do more:
GWM ITALIA rebuilds your machines anew, and with R-TECH, we combine the speed and reliability of your cam driven machines with the flexibility and the accuracy of CNC technology.
HyCam opens up a wide range of turned part applications. From the simple, mass produced turned part machined at high speed, to the accurate complex part finished on the machine. HYCAM offers technologically sophisticated and economically attractive solutions for the manufacture of a multitude of turned parts.
A HYBRID MULTI-SPINDLE LATHE FOR MORE PRODUCTIVITY, FLEXIBILITY AND A WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS
Every one of your HYCAM rebuilt anew machine can be equipped with up to four CNC Cross slides, a 3 axes CNC Pick up, and a CNC Taping unit depending on your needs. These CNC functions open up a new range of applications, by increasing flexibility in resetting and increasing the machining accuracy.
Using the Fanuc 31i CNC to drive our CNC cross slides, your complex operations can be freely programmed and turned with great accuracy, and you stay in control of your production thanks to dynamic offsetting. The use of standard inserts reduces tooling costs, quick-change toolholder allow for simple and rapid changeover, and resetting times are reduced as workpiece changes are handled by CNC programs. Operating the machine becomes more comfortable as corrective values for dimensional errors and tool wear can be entered via the CNC control panel while the machine is in production.
The 3 axes CNC Pick up opens up a number of possibilities for back operations with up to two (in some cases three) tools, and eliminates the need for second operations. The X-Axis is carried out by an auxiliary cross slide, and the Z-Axis and C-Axis by the Pick-up spindle that works like a sliding headstock. All axes are driven by ball screws and servomotors easily programmable to turn your back operations such as Internal or external threading operations, grooves, and complex shapes.
