In the industrial automation market, Combybar machines are a valid alternative to traditional multi-spindle lathes, in this way becoming an extremely competitive product.
Bar transfer allows the part to be machined without needing to rotate the bar.
This gives many advantages:
The bars of theoretically unlimited length, up to 7.5 meters, therefore entail a great autonomy, greater efficiency in the bar change (fewer changes means less time used) and finally a lower bar waste which leads to savings in material and bar cutting cycle time.
The bar magazine is also quick and easy to equip: the production change is immediate. For hexagonal and round bars and for a wide range only adjustments according to the diameter are necessary. Furthermore, during production, the bar changeover time of Combybar is shorter than with the multi-spindle lathe. In fact, depending on the configuration and options on Combybar, the changeover time can be even less than 5 seconds.
Each unit can work at the most suitable values of spindle rotation speed and feed, in order to obtain:
Machines with fully electronic configuration have very low tooling-up times:
When the productions increase, it is possible to foresee double stations, with double units for the realization of two pieces at the same time.
These, compared to two separate machines, take up less floor space and have a lower cost.
High quality and reliability are guaranteed by the great experience and know-how acquired by Picchi.
