IMTS Information Management Technical Specialist . It comes in the shape of a new CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) See numerical control.
CNC - Collaborative Networked Communication rotary transfer manufacturing system.
Called Kaufmanflex 2000 Gold, this system features a 36,000-position rotating pallet for its B-axis positioning. As the manufacturer notes, it's ready to meet the real-world demands of autodom.
Three Hirth coupling four-, six-, or eight-spindle turret heads (Mach.) a vertical cylindrical revolving tool holder for bringing different tools into action successively in a machine, as in a lathe.
See also: Turret on axis slide assemblies are designed to improve tool change time. Moving at 1180 ipm, the slaide assemblies bring speed and precision to the machining of parts such as automtotive steering knuckles, compressor compressor, machine that decreases the volume of air or other gas by the application of pressure. Compressor types range from the simple hand pump and the piston-equipped compressor used to inflate tires to machines that use a rotating, bladed element to achieve housings, master cylinder Noun 1. master cylinder - a cylinder that contains brake fluid that is compressed by a piston
brake cylinder, hydraulic brake cylinder
piston chamber, cylinder - a chamber within which piston moves , and hydraulic pump bodies and valves that fit in a 10" or 15" cube.
All these system allow for five-sided piece-part machining including compound angle holes, under an Indramat MT-CNC controlled system that facilitates last-minute product design changes and process capability demands.
