TAURUS - the ideal machining center for the following applications:
Steel Construction; frames, railway bogies, fixtures, housings
Gearboxes, turbine housings, pump housings, printing machine parts
Machine tool components; machine beds, saddles, spindle housings
Engine blocks, base frames
Tooling, aerospace & die components; fixtures, mandrels, form dies
Ideally suited for machining: steel, aluminum, titanium, cast iron, composites, all types of exotic alloys
and for Your application.
Major machine components made from high quality cast iron provide superior damping characteristics. Castings are constructed with thick walls and strong ribbing to guarantee stability and rigidity. Stiffness and damping are the basic criteria for high productivity and precision.
All guideways are true hydrostatic pump-per-pocket-design with zero contact of sliding components. This results in no wear, high dynamic stiffness, and smooth motion for trouble free operation.
Absolute measuring scales, state of the art digital drives, and optimized mechanical drive components allow for precise motion control.
Sixteen hydrostatic pockets encapsulate the TAURUS-RAM creating tremendous stiffness and smooth precise linear motion.
The RAM has an integrated C-axis with infinitely variable positioning. During roughing operations the C-axis is clamped in position. The 5-axis machining package adds multi-axis contour milling capabilities.
The machining process is supported by the excellent damping properties of highly precise wear free hydrostatic guideways. The temperature of the hydrostatic oil is maintained based on the temperature of the surrounding environment, allowing the machine to maintain its accuracy even in changing ambient conditions. Additional power-hungry temperature control devices can be eliminated. The machine remains accurate even in an unfavorable environment.
The latest digital drive technology and absolute measuring systems enable energy-optimized operation with high precision and low maintenance.
Energy recovery has been in use on WALDRICH COBURG machines for decades. The space optimized X-axis transmission is designed and built by WALDRICH COBURG. With almost all parts manufactured in-house, spare parts can be supplied even after many years of operation.
The coolant cleaning system is located on the maintenance platform. A compact band-filter system is used, which is suitable for different machining requirements.
By using frequency controlled high pressure pumps for the inner and outer coolant supply, energy requirements are minimised.
By using screw-pumps the pressure for the inner coolant supply can be increased up to 70 Bar.
Stylishly designed and functionable!
The TAURUS guarding system is more than just splash and chip protection. The operator‘s raised platform, the chip conveyors and the gratings next to the table are integrated into the guarding.
The operator has a good clear view of the machining process through the large windows next to the operating panel. The sliding door into the machine has a wide opening. The large, but light hinged-doors at the front of the machine assist workpiece loading.
FOUNDATION & LEVELLING WEDGES
The installation of the machine at floor level, on a flat foundation block can reduce the foundation cost by up to 70%.
Foundation pit covers are not needed, chip deflection plates and chip conveyors are integrated into the machine guarding. The pre-installed levelling wedges reduce the installation time of the machine. The ergonomic levelling and re-levelling of the machine geometry, due to foundation changes, can be done at any time thereby extending the long term accuracy of the machine. The detailed foundation calculation as well as the shuttering and reinforcement plan can be optionally selected for TAURUS.
ERGONOMIC CONTROL PANEL
Working with TAURUS is great!
Because of the large display and the manufacturer’s original keyboard, operating TAURUS is a pleasure. The whole control station can be swivelled and the angle of the keyboard can be adjusted.
With the optionally available video camera or InPro productivity package, a separate tablet and docking station with additional functions is also included for the operator’s use.
TAURUS draws from years of refinement at WALDRICH COBURG with a focus on ease of maintenance and troubleshooting. Main electrical cabinets, hydraulic systems, coolant system, chiller system, valves, filters... are all organized for ease of access in the Energy Box.
Combined with modern tools like InPro software, energy recovery drive technology, and wear free guildeways the end user will clearly realize lower operating costs.
An optional pallet changer is available to allow part set-up in parallel with part machining. The fast double location shuttle takes only 3 minutes to exchange pallets. Extended chip conveyors keep the set-up area clean.
Fully enclosed guarding for the machine is included in the price of the pallet system.
InPro, the Interactive Production support allows ergonomic operation, increases the machine availability and contributes to machine safety. Maintenance personnel are assisted by a menu-guided system, the interactive diagnostics help for a speedy error search and the MDR gives information on machine use.
Fixture sheets, NC program management etc. are connected to a modern network. WALDRICH COBURG has used this for more than 15 years and Teleservice for more than 30 years.
