ZF Friedrichshafen:
Two spindles for heavy-duty applications

Licon knew exactly what was needed: the machining of large cubic, hard-to-machine bus chassis parts (six different components) made of cast steel of around 400,000 pieces per year.

Several machining centers with independent, uncoupled axes were delivered, which can compensate possible turnover errors that can occur in the machining process. Due to the size of work pieces that can be processed on these machines, these twin-spindle machining centers have so far no comparable competitors on the world market. In addition, the delivered machining centers also have a zero-point clamping system. The advantage of this system is that set-up costs are reduced and production times are minimized.
