Premium class universal turning
Stability and rigidity are the key to excellent machining results, long tool service life and efficient processes when it comes to lathes. And this is exactly what was taken into consideration in the development of the NLX series. Thanks to the overhauled machine bed and flat guides with their high damping capacity, the NLX models achieve a rigidity that is up to 30 percent higher than that of the predecessor series. This is also true of the NLX 2500SY | 700 that will be showcased in Utrecht, with its counter-spindle, Y-axis (100 mm) and its turning length of 705 mm.
In particular, the larger ball-thread drives, which together with the enlarged bearings make the axes up to 50 percent more rigid, play a decisive role in the top performance achieved by this machine. In addition DMG MORI has also improved thermal stability. The cooling system integrated in the machine bed reduces thermal displacement to a minimum. Add to all this the modular design of the NLX machines and you get the perfect basis for optimum turning operations. A special highlight in this context is the BMT turret for 12 powered tools and speeds of up to 10,000 rpm.
All new NLX models are equipped with CELOS as an intelligent human-machine-interface. CELOS from DMG MORI simplifies and accelerates the process from the idea to the finished product. CELOS APPs also enable continuous and digitalised management, documentation and visualisation of job, process and machine data. In addition CELOS is compatible with PPS and ERP systems; it can be networked with CAD/CAM applications and is ready for trendsetting CELOS APP expansions.
