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.
