GROB Systems Brings G-Series to IMTS 2016
GROB Systems will feature the G-Series universal machining centers at IMTS (Booth #S- 8574). The proven horizontal machining center platform makes these 5-axis machining centers like no other. GROB machines are precise, low maintenance, and ideal for shops requiring ultimate precision and accuracy.
A unique retractable spindle and swivel-rotary table provide unmatched accessibility to the workpiece, even with long tools. Many manufacturers find the GROB design allows them to buy a machine with a smaller footprint than other brands, but the same workpiece capacity.
The highlight of products featured at IMTS 2016 are the next generation universal machines, the G350 – Generation 2. This new model has significantly improved dynamics, faster tool changes, and expanded tool magazine capacity. By redesigning the tool magazine, the overall width has been reduced from 2,450 mm (96.5 in) to 2000 mm (79 inches) for a more compact footprint. The maximum part size is 600 mm in cylinder x 600 mm in height.
The mid-size G550T will be shown with the turning option for parts up to 900 mm in cylinder (Ø 35.4 in). The high-speed table rotates at 800 rpm while compensating for uneven loads. Maximum part height is 730 mm (28.7 in), and longest tool is 500 mm (19.6 in).
All G-Series models feature the GROB-designed and built table with 225 degrees of rotation in the A axis, and continuous 360 degrees in B axis. It is possible to completely invert the table for upside-down machining while chips simply free-fall away from the part.
If high-volume or lights-out production is needed, GROB provides a full range of automation systems, expanded tool magazines and automatic pallet-changers, which will feature at IMTS. The new rotary pallet storage system (PSS-R) is available in three sizes to accommodate five to 13 pallets (630 mm x 630 mm pallet size) and is easily integrated and retrofitted to existing machines.
All GROB machines are MTConnect® compliant with an optional adapter.
