Mill-Turn Centers Integrate Robots Distributed by Absolute Machine Tools Inc., Quicktech i-42 ROBO and i-60 ROBO four-axis mill-turn centers feature integrated six-axis Mitsubishi robots for fast, automated loading and unloading of medium-diameter (i42: 42 mm/1.68", i60: 60 mm/2.36") barstock. In addition to carrying out highly productive turning, the machines can perform complex milling with standard live tools, the company says. An optional 360-degree B axis further extends milling capabilities. The Mitsubishi S series six-axis high- speed robot automatically loads, unloads or turns over parts weighing up to 13 lbs. An optional multi-tray pallet handling sys- tem enables untended operation. Accord- ing to the company, the robot is contained within the machine and is positioned to allow unimpeded operator access for machine setup and operation. The i-42 ROBO and i-60 ROBO machines operate in four axes (five with the optional B axis), with a 15-hp high- torque turning spindle that features C-axis capability, a 2-hp live tool milling spindle, and capacity for 17 tools (23 with B axis). A standard DIN-173-42B collet chuck provides capacity for 42-mm bar, while an optional with a 60-mm collet or 6", three- jaw chuck offers 60-mm bar capacity. :: Absolute Machine Tools Inc. 800-852-7825 1.800.281.5734 Germantown, WI USA We have all heard the phrase WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER.
