Press release: LiCON at the EMO 2023
Individual independent compensation of both work spindles in X, Y and Z: i³-technology enables independent compensation in all three main axes.
More power for electromobility
LiCON expands service and product portfolio
At this year's EMO in September, the Laupheim machine tool manufacturer will present several market innovations. These include the single- and twin-spindle LiFLEX I+I for 5-axis machining of cubic structural components, the further development of the i3-technology as well as customized automation offers. The company is thus taking into account customer and market requirements to save space, costs and energy as well as to meet new processing demands.
For Managing Director Winfried Benz, EMO Hanover as the world's leading trade fair for production technology is a very special opportunity to present new solutions to the professional audience. "Especially the drive of the latest electric vehicle generations, e.g. for stator housings, requires the highest machining precision. The requirements in the non-automotive sector are also increasing. All in all, the variety of components for which we receive requests for processing is constantly growing. We are responding to this with new and innovative solutions."
These include the 'I+I' variant of the LiFLEX machine concept, in which the two spindles can perform different machining operations at the same time. Various pallet changer systems also enable the machining centers to be loaded during machining time and thus significantly increase productivity compared to directly loaded machining centers.
Increase production flexibility and production quality
LiCON has also further developed the i3-technology to meet customer needs. "This complete decoupling and independence of both spindles increases both production flexibility and production quality. Special compensation strategies enable consistently high machining quality right from the start of production without warm-up intervals," Winfried Benz continues.
In addition to the twin-spindle machines, which can be optionally equipped with i3-technology, the LiCON modular product system also offers solutions in the area of single-spindle and four-spindle machining centers for a wide range of other applications in both the automotive and non-automotive sectors. All machining centers are developed, designed and built in-house at the headquarters in Southern Germany. The LiCON product portfolio is completed by offers for automation – all from a single source. These turnkey solutions further increase the economic efficiency of the production systems.
