These systems are designed to be highly productive for the manufacture of large volumes.

        One ANGER HCX machine can, depending on the complexity of the work piece, achieve a cycle time and production quantity equivalent to two double-spindle traditional machining centers. When compared with a single-spindle traditional machining center, the HCX can replace 4 and sometimes even 8 of them.

      • The Fastest Double Spindle Machine in the World
        The new ANGER double spindle machine increases the productivity of your production thanks to two double tool changers and a clamping cycle time of 1.2 seconds. In pendulum operation, the workpiece is moved from one tool changer to the other. While one side is being machined, the tool is changed on the other, reducing non-productive time to a minimum.

        Depending on the number of tool-change processes, the 2PLUS is up to 30 percent faster than a conventional double spindle machine. The ANGER 2PLUS can be used to great advantage especially for components with many different machining processes, which take a long time on a conventional machining center due to the multiple tool changes.

        • TRANSFER CENTER ADVANTAGES

        • a single transfer center can replace multiple machining centers
          In a traditional machining center, the work piece is clamped in a fixed position and the tool is loaded for machining by the tool changer in the main spindle. By contrast, in a transfer center the components can be (milled, drilled, threaded etc.) processed with just one set-up. The processing method of the work piece is therefore the opposite than in a traditional machining center. Work pieces are automatically clamped into position and are then moved, controlled by the CNC, from one tool to another. By this process, multiple work pieces are often machined simultaneously.

          It thereby also reduces floor space, energy, servicing and labor requirements. The total costs (TCO) can be reduced significantly with this technology. With fixed-position spindles and by implementing special tools, you can achieve the highest levels of accuracy.

          SMART PRODUCTION

        • ABOUT STRUCTURAL PARTS

        • Increasingly intensified environmental requirements have a great impact on the development of new vehicles architecture. The manufacturers have to develop ever smaller and more efficient engines and have to drive the vehicle weight further downwards without losing the weight or the quality. In this lightweight construction, more and more aluminum is used as a material. On the other hand, composite materials are used.

          Currently, an average of 140kg of aluminum is built in one vehicle. According to current development, within 5 years, this proportion will increase to over 30%.

          CHALLENGE OF MANUFACTURING STRUCTURAL PARTS
          Big parts such as longitudinal beam or battery tray are too big for standar machines nowadays.
          Integration of new machining technologies in the process chain.
          The processing machines currently available on the market are therefore unnecessarily precise for the processing.
        • SMART PRODUCTION

        • "smart" conversion in cycle time

          Industry 4.0, smart production, digitalization – no matter how we call it, eventually it is always about seamless connection of the digital and the real world. Digitally connected processes in the industry 4.0 enable the products to be manufactured more flexibly, energy efficiently, individually and cheaply. This also results in totally new possibilities in the field of machine tool. However, the basic principle of cutting machines can hardly be changed due to the physical limits.

          The focus is on the integrated view of the automated production cell. ANGER MACHINING has identified the major challenges for the cost-effective operation of these cells (robot, machine tool, storage): cost-effective production of a variety of series – the typical challenges of many OEMs, T1, T2, and SME factories dealing with the machining of the serial parts. In many cases, changeover processes during the workpiece changing are very tiresome and cost-intensive. Due to lack of specialists, the necessary expertise is missing.

          ANGER MACHINING has developed a solution that opens new possibilities for different workpieces with a lot sizes from 10,000 pieces. With ANGER 2PLUS, a new system concept was introduced to the market, which allows considerably greater variability. It not only allows the flexible production of smaller batches but also the production in chaotic workpiece sequence, with minimum changeover time and without any intervention of a person.

          The intelligent system uses all the information about the process: the workpieces are tracked via QR-Code and tool and clamping data are transmitted by RFID chips. The robot, which takes over the handling, has the same standardized interface as the processing machine. It takes up the clamping device, takes the raw part, and hands it over to the loading shuttle of the machine in the clamped state.

          The system works fully automated and adapts the data corresponding to the entire process of the next components to the master computer system. Depending on the component type to be manufactured, the right clamping devices, tools, and even the machining spindles of the two component nests in the cutting machine are adapted thanks to automatic micro fine-adjustment.

          The ANGER MACHINING solutions achieve an extremely low chip-to-chip time of about one second between the processing steps. Such record-breaking values reduce downtime to minimum. In combination with a continuous networked process, high profitability is achieved with full flexibility.
        • SMARTFIX

        • innovative loading method
          When machining different parts in the past, it was always necessary to replace the robot gripper with each specific clamping fixture. ANGER is set to change that situation, however, and bring complete flexibility to production with its new "Industry 4.0-type" loading concept. A universal robot arm & machine table interface makes it possible to machine different parts or operations in one machine (e.g. pre-machining or fine machining) without the need for manual retooling or conversion.

          The new ANGER clamping fixtures SmartFix are fitted with a universal interface. On the robot, the clamping fixture also becomes the gripper that picks up the raw parts and hand over the Smartfix to the machine by the use of a loading shuttle.

          INDUSTRY 4.0
          ENSURING THE FLEXIBILITY TO ACCOMMODATE VARYING QUANTITIES OR CHANGES TO PARTS
          "Changeover" to other parts is fully autonomous and does not require any form of manual intervention whatsoever. This means not only that conversion (retooling) can be done during the machine's cycle (e.g. "chaos operations"), but also that any subsequent changes made to the part will only affect the clamping fixture for the part in question. New parts only need one tool change.

          TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION
          • 4- and 5-axis machining possible
          • Clamping system repeatability: 5 μ process capability
          • Total pallet weight: up to 150 kg
        • TCO SAVING

          Taking the whole product life cycle into consideration, ANGER MACHINING systems score well with its total costs (TCO) in many application areas, which are by far the lowest compared with other solutions. Because of the usage of the different machining modules combined with the customer fitted automation, the result is a perfect system.
          The lower total costs (TCO) are thanks to:

          • lower per unit costs due to high productivity

          • high process capability and capacity

          • and low running costs
