Arla Maschinentechnik GmbH offers CNC endworking machines in single- and double-sided models. Based on a solid frame, the machines contain one or two machining units and concentric workholding technology. All components are aligned to realize high accuracy over the length, the company states.
For double-sided machining, the unit works like a double-head machine and runs like two separate CNC lathes operating independently. The principal difference is that this endworking concept comprises a fixed workpiece and revolving tools.
All machining units are directly driven by servomotors. They are built with integrated water-cooled motor spindles, optionally available with automatic tool changing systems on both sides and integrated facing head technology.
