Mikron MultiX already attracted a great deal of attention at the EMO 2019 in Hanover: the MM Maschinenmarkt trade magazine for the machine industry awarded the rotary transfer machine first prize for innovation in the machine tool category.
The Mikron MultiX is consistently tailored to customer requirements. It is very easy to convert and offers unique possibilities with machining solutions for the production of 50 up to 5'000'000 parts. Among the innovative features of the new platform is the simple reconfiguration for new applications: once the application for which the system was initially configured is no longer needed, the system can be easily and quickly reconfigured with a revolutionary – patented – concept. Customers can thus save the investment in a new system.
The Mikron MultiX impresses with distinct technical features: Direct machining from the bar (turning or milling), three machining units working simultaneously at each station, multispindle-lathe and transfer machine capabilities in one single machining system.
Customers have a complete set of machining units at their disposal for their various needs: The machining units differ in size, number of axis, size of compatible spindles, strokes, stiffness, and can be exchanged within the platform and re-used in various different configurations.
Modular and user-friendly
The modular software package and the Mikron HMI interface are designed for ease of use and quick adaptability to any machine configuration. This enables a simple and efficient operation, configuration and reconfiguration of the desired machining solution.
Further flexibility is provided by scalability: customers can start producing with a single cycle Mikron MultiX configuration and add supplementary cycles according to volume growth.
