With the huge investments at FAMOT, DMG MORI on the one promotes increased capacities, on the other hand the machine tool manufacturer concentrates on further developing its universal machine portfolio made in Poland. The latest example is the CLX 450 with its larger turning length of 800mm.

Automation solutions ex work from a single supplier are another focus at FAMOT. The portfolio includes the flexible robot Robo2Go for CLX turning centres, the WH CELL, a robot solution for CMX V and CMX U machines, and the PH 150 pallet handling, also for the CMX machining centres.

DMG MORI extends its portfolio of universal turning centres adding the new CLX 450 with its longer turning length. The turning centre will be presented in a version with an 800mm turning length and counter-spindle for 6-sided machining. It has a turning diameter with Y-axis – which has a travel range of around 120mm – of ø 315mm. Without the Y-axis its spacious work area can accommodate components up to ø 400mm. Bar machining up to a diameter of ø 80mm is possible and ø 210mm, ø 250mm and ø 315mm chucks are available. With its counter spindle the CLX 450 enables 6-sided complete machining of complex parts. The main spindle impresses with a high torque of up to 426 Nm. Direct travel measuring systems from MAGNESCALE in the X- and Y-axis ensure high precision, optionally also in the Z-axis. On the control-side, DMG MORI offers both SIEMENS and FANUC.

CLX 450 with a higher turning length for workpieces up to ø 315 × 800mm in the version with Y-axis and counter spindle.

This strong total package requires a mere footprint of 6.7mÇ, which means that all CLX universal turning machines from DMG MORI are available in all technological levels, starting from turning operation up to sub-spindle operations, and with numerous technology cycles as well as hard and software options – and can be configured individually in accordance with the application-specific requirements of our customers. The new CLX 450 will be produced in the Polish factory FAMOT as well as in the Italian factory GRAZIANO that has a long-lasting FANUC experience.

Automation ex works from a single source

Automation solutions are one of the most important key topics for DMG MORI, so that FAMOT has also expanded its range in this field. Customers receive a wide range of productive standard automations here ex-works from a single source. All CLX lathes can be automated by means of the new Robo2Go 2nd Generation. The robot is optionally available with 10 kg, 20 kg or 35 kg load capacity and moves workpieces up to ø 170mm. Its dialog-guided control is easy to operate even without previous robot programming skills. Additionally, the CLX series can be equipped with the gantryloading system GX6 that can be individually customized to the customers’ needs.

A robot solution for the milling machines of the CMX V and CMX U series is the WH CELL. The modular automation system is designed for many different workpieces and is available with single or double gripper – including customized gripper jaws. The CMX V and CMX U series can also be automated by means of the PH 150 pallet handling. The load capacity is 150 kg or optionally 250 kg, while two pallet sizes are possible: ten pallets with 320 Å~ 320mm each or six pallets with 400 Å~ 400 mm each.
