  • A modern CNC Lathe must be productive, reliable, and cost-effective. The Orion T series combines all of these characteristics in every model
  • The servo turret provides precision and efficiency at the workpiece, complemented by advanced drive technology with rapid feeds up to 36 m/min
  • Fast: Linear guides for reliable precision
  • Productive: VDI Turret with driven tool stations
  • Reliable: Fanuc control technology
  • Expandable: many options available

Machine bed

  • The heavily ribbed 45° inclined bed frame features premium linear guides for superior thermal and structural stability
  • This design is very spacious, featuring a large work space for tools and improved chip removal
  • A wide support saddle with maximum guide length will result in significantly more stability and much less vibration
  • The preloaded ball screws connect to powerful drives via a zero-loss transmission clutch, and extensive bilateral bearings ensure high axial and radial rigidity

Main spindle and headstock

  • Excellent rigidity and minimum influence of fluctuating operating temperatures are possible due to an innovative and massive spindle head design
  • Thermal stability is achieved by strictly symmetrical builds and cooling structures that ensure consistent cooling air circulation around the entire spindle
  • The main spindle is designed for demanding loads and lasting accuracy

Tailstock

  • The rigid tailstock for shaft machining provides additional flexibility in production operations
  • The design with 2 additional box ways ensures collision-free tailstock movements. Extra long guideways, superior rigidity and precision of guides result in excellent vibration damping even during heavy machining operations
  • Automatic tailstock is available as an option.

Equipment

  • Perfectly organized layout and well-designed details ensure maximum operator comfort and a comfortable work environment
  • Every machine can be customized to fit the respective requirements with options like soft jaws for the lathe chuck, tool measuring systems (fixed & removable), parts catcher, high-pressure coolant supply, oil separator, and filter
  • STAHLWERK machines can be retrofitted at any time with useful accessories to meet increasing power and productivity requirements
  • Quick EWS turret with high-torque servo-motor and bidirectional tool selection ensures shorter tool-changing times
  • Solid structure and powerful clamping virtually eliminate vibrations completely resulting in a significantly longer tool life.
  • The powerful main drive for milling, drilling and thread cutting tools provides a maximum capacity of 3 kW and speeds up to 5000 rpm
  • High C axis resolution allows precise contour milling and exact positioning
  • Additional center widths are available for even more capacity

Fanuc 0i TF control

  • Easy programming and operation, short learning curve
  • User-friendly graphics display for visual verification of parts programs
  • Use of existing programs without reprogramming requirements
  • High-speed machining and standard nano-interpolation
  • Fixed cycles and custom macro B for simplified parts programming
  • State-of-the-Art functionality, like jerk limitation, nano smoothing, and Al Contour Control ll - compatibile with previous version series 0 and series 0i models A, B, C and D
  • Series 0i Model F are the successor models of the Series 0 and Series 0i, which are the most popular CNC controls worldwide with over 700,000 installations. STAHLWERK also features the latest FANUC drive technology.
  • With up to 4 controlled axes, the CNC Series 0i provides the best controls to meet the high demands of STAHLWERK Premium Line machine tools.

Alternatively available with a Siemens Sinumerik 828D.

  • Compact, robust, maintenance-free control panel-based CNC
  • comfortable program and parameter input via QWERTY keyboard
  • 100 adjustable zero offsets
  • Synchronous actions, and quick output of help functions
  • Maximum machining precision
  • Siemens Sinumerik 828D CNC highlights, specifications and features
  • programGUIDE: fastest machining time and maximum flexibility for high-volume series productions
  • Animated elements: unique operation and programming assistance with animated sequences
  • Advanced data transfer options via USB stick, CF card and network (Ethernet)
  • Easy message: maximum machine availability due to process monitoring per texting (SMS)
  • Jerk-limited acceleration
  • Dynamic feed-forward control
  • 4-axis simultaneous interpolation (X, Y, Z and rotary axis)
  • Linear, circular and helical interpolation
  • Tapping without compensating chuck, plus thread cutting
  • Oriented spindle hold
  • Toggle between inch and metric units
  • FRAME concept for individual coordinate transformations, rotations, scaling and mirroring
