Hard machining

Hard lathing

The technology at a glance.

  • Automated CNC lathes with modern industrial robots are in use from different reputable machine manufacturers to lathe hardened components following heat treatment.
  • The production of cylindrical and conical bores is supported by in-process measurements.
  • Other specialities are position-oriented lathing with a centre offset, in which the workpiece is clamped from the centre, as well as dry lathing without cooling lubricant during machining.
  • Various materials, such as alloyed case-hardened steels and sintered materials, are processed.
  • Hard lathing is possible up to a max. tip diameter of 1,250 mm and a max. length of 900 mm.
