Complex workpieces of both turning and milling operations, are usually machined on different machine tools which entails time-consuming clamping and shifting works for the operator. WaldrichSiegen offers an innovative machine concept which allows for efficient machining of such workpieces with only one machine.
In order to be able to turn and mill heavy workpieces in one set-up at low cost, WaldrichSiegen further developed its high-performance turning lathes. Renowned customers all over the world machine challenging workpieces with the horizontal turning lathe ProfiTurn H with its integrated milling unit at highest precision. The responsibilities of this machine tool range from turn-milling of heavy shafts of up to 500 tons in the general engineering to the manufacture of heavy pinions with a maximum weight of 100 tons and gearing qualities according to DIN 8/9.
The mill-turning machine ProfiTurn M has been designed for all applications that require complex mill-turning operations. Whether turbine or generator rotors or heavy forged parts – the ProfiTurn M has been developed for the precise and efficient machining of demanding workpieces with a diameter of up to 4.2 m, a length of 25 m and weights between 20 and 250 t. The extremely rigid box-in-box construction of the milling tower guarantees highest stability, even when great cutting forces are involved.
