High productivity in ultraprecise machining

PowerCube by Thielenhaus Microfinish

(PresseBox) (Wuppertal, ) High productivity is also possible in the precision-machining of wave-like components, bearing and sealing seats: For this purpose Thielenhaus Microfinish has developed an extremely fast tape-finish machine. The four-spindle automatic PowerCube doesn’t reduce the duration of the tool action; instead, it reduces the machine’s non-productive time to one second and the set-up processes to an absolute minimum.

The spindles are integrated in a round table and can be sealed off from each other. Through 90° strokes, a completed workpiece can be removed and a new one can be loaded. In this way, two workpieces can be machined simul-taneously, whilst the detergent wetting for the third spindle is centrifuged. Or, alternatively, a different machining operation can take place. The fourth spindle allows loading and unloading that is unaffected by the main time. Similarly, double-loading, multi-stage processes and combination machining with very short cycle times are possible.

Thanks to a simplified tape and printing roll changeover system and a high level of accessibility in the working space, set-up times are reduced to a minimum. Optional NC axes support the set-up process with the most common kinds of changeover. With its speedily adjustable tape-finish units, the modular construction guarantees flexible, cost-neutral configuration for the most varied workpieces; in the standard working area, these can have dimensions of up to 50 mm diameter and 400 mm length.

The self-explanatory user operation surface with its pull-down menus is ahead of the field in innovation. All settings can be carried out quickly and easily by the operator him- or herself, without special training. The machine’s interface allows the adaptation of a great range of automation solutions. Despite its high performance, the PowerCube is surprisingly compact: its foot-print measures only 1,200 x 1,940 mm.

Thielenhaus Technologies GmbH

Thielenhaus Microfinish, a division of the German Thielenhaus Technologies GmbH, has been building high-precision, high-productivity machine tools for over 100 years. In the last 70 years, Thielenhaus Microfinish has become the leading manufacturer of extreme-precision machine tools for Microfinish/Superfinish and double-disc grinding applications.

Microfinishing, also known as superfinishing or short-stroke honing, is the ideal machining process for achieving extreme precision surfaces and component geometries, and removing amorphous surface layers in the magnitude of 2 µm. Honing stones, cup wheels and microfinishing tape or film can be used to generate surface roughness or geometrical accuracy within a previously defined window that often spans a few tenths of a micron. Indicated below are a number of parameters which can be optimized using Microfinish:

With facilities in Europe, America and Asia and a worldwide service network, Thielenhaus has adapted itself to the market conditions and to the customer needs all over the world.

Commitment to quality: Thielenhaus machines are employed by leading manufacturers across the world for a good reason - their high reliability, productivity and production quality. Thielenhaus continuously pushes the limits of precision machining, enabling its customers to achieve workpiece qualities that were previously impossible.

All solutions from a single source: Extreme precision is the specialty of Thielenhaus, and over the years the manufacturer has built the world's largest portfolio of Microfinish solutions, ranging from industrial equipment for large and small manufacturers to just-in-time tool delivery and other services. When it comes to Microfinish Thielenhaus is the one-stop shop.

The flexibility of Thielenhaus is its customer's advantage: The manufacturer adapts the machine solutions to the customer's component, loading/unloading preferences, cycle time requirements and other specific needs. The modular design of the machine platforms accommodates even tricky components.

New challenges and innovation are the passion of Thielenhaus: They are proud of their 430+ patents in surface finishing technology as well as of numerous market-leading platforms and pioneering innovations. Thielenhaus constantly seeks to improve the machining concepts, always keeping in mind the challenges of tomorrow.

Customer support all over the world: With customer service locations in six countries and service agreements with a network of agents and distributors, Thielenhaus is able to provide quick service on short notice practically anywhere in the world. The customers also benefit from a 24/7 hotline and Online Direct Service.

Thielenhaus is known as a highly experienced problem solver: Anyone can be a problem solver, but with more than 70 years of developing Microfinish solutions, the Thielenhaus staff have probably seen and solved more Microfinish problems than anyone else in the industry. When it comes to splitting microns, the Thielenhaus in-depth knowledge of the microfinishing process is unsurpassed.
