At their Berlin factory, Siemens Energy Global GmbH & Co. KG manufactures components for turbine rotors, generators and compressors for power generation and transmission in both the conventional and renewable energy sectors. To ensure that the workpieces are machined precisely and efficiently, the reliable and powerful UNION table-type horizontal boring mill T 110 has been set up in 2009 to supplement the machine park in Berlin. In order to ensure continued availability and efficiency for the next few years of production, the machine was modernized and moved within the factory by our experts. In the process, a compact coolant system – manufactured by Herkules Meuselwitz – and a full machine enclosure with extraction system were retrofitted, for the best possible machine safety and protection of the employees from dust, cooling lubricant and noise.
Thanks to excellent care and maintenance as well as the outstanding quality in construction, design and materials, the machine is still in almost perfect condition after 13 years and continues to achieve the highest machining accuracies. The machine impresses with travels of 2,000 mm in the X axis, 1,600 mm in the Y axis, 1,500 mm in the Z axis and 550 mm in the W axis. The work table with a clamping surface of 1,250 x 1,600 mm and a loading weight of up to 6 t max. ensures precise positioning of the workpiece to be machined. With an associated 2-axis universal milling head, complex components can be machined reliably and precisely.
The T-series of the UNION brand is used worldwide where absolute precision and efficiency are required and qualitative compromises are no alternative. The T-Series machines are the ideal 5-axis controlled machines for efficient multi-sided machining of medium-heavy workpieces weighing up to 10 t. The solid construction of the wide 4-lane bed and the cast iron column combine robust design and high rigidity, for high-precision results with virtually vibration-free operation.
