 Press Releases

  • In a business environment where efficiency is more important than ever, manufacturers are continually looking for new ways to optimize their production processes. Achieving higher volume at a reasonable per-piece cost without a loss in quality is a common goal across diverse industries, such as the aerospace, defense, automotive, consumer goods, electronics and writing instruments sector.

    The Mikron XT-one machining center is the focus of Mikron Machining's AeroDef (March 6-9 in Fort Worth, TX) presence in March . Mikron representatives are ready to demonstrate how Mikron can contribute to improve efficiencies and lower cost-per-part while maintaining high quality standards.

    The two independent working spindles of the Mikron XT-one enable it to work alternatively. While one spindle is machining, the other is changing the cutting tool - even at maximum spindle speed. This allows shortest non-productive times with chip to chip of 0.9 s, even at maximum spindle speed.

    A simple calculation illustrates the gain in time and cost: With the possibility of four tool-changes per minutes, 470 hours per year are saved, which equals about US$ 30,000 (16h/day, 220 days/year, 15’000 rpm (0.9 versus 3.4 seconds chip to chip time - a 2.5 second difference factor), 80% = 469.3 hours per year with 60 US$ per hour = 28’800 $US).

    Product profile Mikron XT-one

    The Mikron XT-one machining center is worldwide amongst the most versatile and

    precise machines for complex parts.

    • Chip to chip of 0.9 sec. even at maximum spindle speed: savings of up to 500 - 2,000

    hours of non-productive time per year equals $120,000 per year.

    • Two independent spindles (configured as needed 15,000 and 40,000 rpm)

    • Two fixtures for parallel operations (machining and loading)

    • Simultaneous production of different components possible

    • Invest flexible: scale up for production as needed. System expandable to up to four

    working modules

    • Six face machining capability, workpiece size up to approx. 8” cube

 Products

  • Mikron XT-one
    The Mikron XT-one machining center is worldwide amongst the most versatile and precise machines for complex parts. With its numerous configuration possibilities, every Mikron XT-one can be customized into a perfect solution for your requirements....

  • Benefit from our vast knowledge and skills regardless of whether you are using a standard clamping device or special
    clamping chucks. Multiple part clamping is possible on a single pallet. Over 100 dedicated turnkey solutions (for detailed
    clamping with dedicated or custom cutting tools…) are developed every year!
     

    The modularity and flexibility of the Mikron XT-one machining center is unique and unequalled in today’s market place.
    Mikron XT-one can be expanded to meet future production requirements at any time, with incomparable precision!
    There is one integrated loading/unloading module which can work with up to 4 machining center modules.

    Hand loading or fully automatic loading with a pallet changer. Loading and preparing for the new parts are parallel to the
    machine cutting time. The material flow of blank and finished work-pieces can be managed to reach the optimal benefit.

    The two independent working spindles of the Mikron XT-one enable it to work alternatively. While one spindle is machining,
    the other is changing the cutting tool - even at maximum spindle speed. This allows shortest non productive times with
    chip to chip of 0.9 s.

     

     

     

  • Mikron Multistep XT-200
    The Mikron Multistep achieves top results in economy and precision. With its unbeatable modularity and flexibility, production requirements can be adjusted at any time, all with unparalleled precision....

  • With a single loading module you can add from 1 up to 4 machining module extensions providing a total of 36 to 144 tools.

    For both small and large production runs, with Multistep XT-200 customisation, you can produce your precision parts
    economically. Allows to switch easily between demanding processing steps and short run orders effectively.
    Maximum size workpieces up to 200 mm x 200 mm edge length (depending on setup situation and processing tasks).

    The Multistep XT-200 combines perfectly the productivity of a transfer machine with the retooling flexibility of a
    machining centre perfectly.The design of this high precision machining system is based on individual, two-spindle
    modules fitted to each another.


    The integrated loading and unloading module feeds all of the machining modules. Any expansion with additional
    machining modules (up to 4) results in a direct increase in productivity, providing a demand-oriented investment.
    With up to 4 spindles operating independently, up to 144 tools afford excellent flexibility.

    Material flow of blank and finished work-pieces can be managed optimally. Either by manual loading, or an integrated robot!
    Thanks to systems integration, fault prone interfaces, as is so often the case with conventional machining centres, are omitted.
    Additional tasks can be processed in parallel, without any downtime.

    Each machining module is equipped with two working spindles which are used alternatively. While one spindle is machining,
    the other is changing the cutting tool. The ingenious work-piece flow through the directly connected machining modules allows
    complete machining of the work-pieces – with no downtime!

    For years our engineers have encountered a wide range of materials, shapes and geometries of workpieces.
    You benefit from vast knowledge and skills regardless of whether you are using standard clamping devices or
    special clamping chucks.
    Multiple clamping possible: more than 70 dedicated clamping solutions are developed every year!

    The Multistep machining system is a true productivity center! Its modularity and flexibility are unique and unequalled. It can
    be expanded to meet future production increases at any time with incomparable precision!
    There is one integrated loading/unloading module which can work with all the machining modules (up to 4). Therefore
    production can be increased by adding machining modules but no additional loading/unloading module has to be added.
    The investment in increased production can be tailored as needed.
