Horizontal shaft turning center

The horizontal shaft turning machine is equipped with a main spindle with a tailstock or a counter spindle. The highly productive simultaneous machining in one machine with up to two powerful disc turrets (4 axes) enables intelligent technology processes with high savings potentials and also offers highly precise machining results. In addition to good dynamics and the high rapid traverse speeds, this series has excellent damping properties and thus first-class accuracy behavior. Workpieces can be machined up to a workpiece length of 800 mm.

Rotational turning
With the rotation turning process developed and patented by WEISSER, precisely machined surfaces can be generated with twist-free finishing precision and thus replace the expensive grinding operations. The simultaneous rotation of workpiece and tool cutting edge reduces the machining time by up to 77 % compared
with hard turning.


Hard turning
Hard turning describes the turning of steel with a hardness of more than 45 HRC. It is an efficient alternative for grinding hardened workpieces. The advantages of this process are shorter cycle, set-up and tooling times as well as the relatively lower investment costs and the options of wet and dry machining.
