Products: Principles of Variomatic rotary transfer machines

In the heart of each rotary transfer machine is a horizontal switching table with component clamping devices, around which machining stations are arranged. Equipped with versatile combinable machining units, components are thereby bored, milled, turned, pierced, coiled or broached. Other processing steps can be optionally configured.

A loading and unloading station supplies the components (prefabricated blanks or cut shaped material) to the individual component clamping devices. The table turns evenly at the combustion cycle of the machine and moves each part from machining station to machining station and/or from processing step to processing step.

All operations take place at the same time, so that the longest processing step determines the cycle time of the machine.

In comparison with the use of sequentially working machining centers, the times of the individual processing steps are not added up, but a finished component is ejected and a new blank is supplied to the machine per cycle.

Extremely short production times and/or very high outputs in particular make Variomatic rotary transfer machines economically interesting for medium-scale and large-scale production.
