Horizontal - Twin Spindle - 5 Axis | Sep 14, 2016

Direct Load, Double Trunnion or Pallet Changer – LiFLEX machining centers are available with all three options and provide the best solution for each particular application.

Whether LiFLEX II 444 with 450 mm or 400 mm, LiFLEX II 766 with 750 mm or LiFLEX II 1066 with 1050 mm spindle distance – for each working envelope Licon has the right size for  your requirements.

Through the high dynamic stiffness of the LiFLEX high force machining performance is achieved. Heavy-duty applications can easily be performed with these twin spindles – as shown in our video clip portal housings from ZF.

The LiFLEX concept allows via its specifically designed 5-axis-positioning, machining in single clamping. The working envelope of LiFLEX machining centers has been optimized for this purpose and delivers the extra height needed for upright machining.

Using a pallet changer part changeover is easy to manage. The changeover from one workpiece to another is done in only 20 minutes. Through the integrated zero-point clamping system pallets with clamping fixtures are changed and the first part thereafter that is produced is already in quality.
Now the twin spindle machining center is not only the proper solution for high-volume production, but also offers significant cost per part benefits for manufacturers of smaller batches.

i³-technology allows this twin spindle to act similar as two independent machining centers:  No compromises required. Those rotation errors are easily facilitated by individual offsets for each spindle.

The gain in productivity and space are huge advantages of a twin spindle machining center. The i³-technology is optional, while the i-technology with independent Z-axes is even standard for LiFLEX.

Status analysis is the mandatory requirement for preventive maintenance. LAVA (Licon Added Value Analysis) allows a view into the very heart of the  machining center. Recently Licon has developed a sophisticated sensor system in conjunction with analysis software for machine diagnostics.

Horizontal Machining – 5 Axis – 2 Spindles

To achieve the maximum benefit of a twin-spindle machining center the appropriate configuration is mandatory: twin-spindle machining centers of Licon are standing out by optimized alignment of travel distance and swing diameters.  Spindles positioned horizontally are making a short traction possible and contribute to success significantly.
