The ORBITEC 20, which will be demonstrated by Mazak at the MACH Exhibition in April, has been specifically developed for turning eccentric large features of an irregular shape, which are not conducive to normal turning operations.
The ORBITEC 20 moves the cutting tool while the turned part, such as a valve, remains in a fixed position. The machine is capable of completing a variety of valve features, including the facing of flange surfaces, conical boring of taper holes, face milling, end milling, threading, internal grooving, concave machining and phonographic finishing. 75 per cent of valve applications can be completed in one set-up, while maintaining high tolerances.
The seminar programme for the biennial MACH Exhibition has been announced and will include presentations from Rolls-Royce, the Business Growth Fund, the National Composite Centre, and Red Bull F1. Click here to register online – the seminar registration button is located at the bottom of the page.
