Convinced by the durability, reliability and quality of WaldrichSiegen machines, Raahen Konepajatyö Oy from Finland has decided to purchase a UNION brand PCR II 150 floor plate-type boring mill.
Raahen Konepajatyö Oy is a contract manufacturer specializing in the machining of large components for the mining and paper industries, among others. The main criterion for investing in a new UNION boring mill was to manufacture large steel and welded frames while maximizing flexibility.
With a boring spindle diameter of 150 mm and a maximum torque of 2,750 Nm, the machine is ideally suited for machining large and complex workpieces with changing machining requirements, where the focus is primarily on high efficiency and shortened machining times. With travels of 12,000 mm in the X-axis, 5,000 mm in the Y-axis and 1,500 mm in the Z-axis, as well as a DV45 rotary and positioning table, an additional generously dimensioned floor plate (10,000 × 2,000 mm) and an UC-U 50 NC universal milling head, the machining of large workpieces with complex requirements and low tolerances will no longer be a challenge in the future.
Not only different workpiece sizes, but also different machining methods are flexibly covered. This is made possible by the UC-U50 NC universal milling head, which can be continuously swiveled in two directions and is manufactured in-house. It can be positioned quickly and with absolute precision on the various machining planes – A basic requirement for machining of a wide variety of workpieces.
