New 2017 BURKARDT+WEBER machines are equipped with an upgraded
Variable Matrix Style Tool Handling.
Feature upgrades of the tool magazine and tool handling system deliver more universal flexibility with BURKHARDT+WEBER machines. First introduced into the world market in 1986 this industry leading tool management design has undergone many revisions and upgrades since. While maintaining its innovative and direction setting features, it is greatly benefitting the overall machining economics, the universal machine uses, and the overall flexibility. The design is proven since decades and all new upgrades have undergone already field testing in production uses to maintain the extremely reliable concept.
The new benefits increase the overall tool storage capacity, for tools and machining heads weighting up to 75kg (163 lbs). The variable matrix style tool storage is highly economical, compact and field adaptable to handle changing tool requirements within two basic sizes for up to 608 tools. Your engineering changes or new product introductions, or changing orders for job shops can demand increased tool volumes or a change of tool sizes or more tool types needed, outside the capacity installed. The BURKHARDT+WEBER concept allows a cost-effective field expansion of the tool storage, or a modification to the automatic tool handling capabilities to the new requirements while maintaining capacity for boring diameters of up to 900 mm (35.4 inch). Factory assistance is not demanded, even when the machine is already delivered. In addition, options for handling extra-long tools with up to 1,200mm in length make any BURKHARDT+WEBER machine ultra-flexible.
And the overall networking features for today's smart manufacturing are also provided, and options for tool migration with external tool storage are offered.
The upgraded design features provide for a wider range of angular heads, special tooling, like feed out boring bars or facing heads, or deep hole drilling tools. More tools are economically stored at the machine, ready for use to keep the machine cutting.
Full tool management features, like sister tools, automatic tool data loading, and tool forecasting together with safe, operator friendly tool loading add to your productive spindle cutting time. And the large tool weight capacity eliminates manual tool handling requirements, freeing up operator attention, while adding capabilities for unattended machining.
