LISSMAC Metal processing solutions offer both sides at the same time.

 

LISSMAC systems for metal processing set benchmarks in innovative sheet metal processing through highly-effective, two-sided deburring and edge rounding of punched, laser and fine plasma cut workpieces using only one work process. Unlike grinding machines, SBM-L G1S2s win over customers with more efficient processing work savings of up to 60%.

Both sides - One work step

The innovation – In the dry processing method, the highly efficient double-sided processing of all cut contours (outside and inside contours) on sheets is done in only one work process. Double-sided synchronous processing offers highest productivity in the production process of our customers. The processing principle of LISSMAC systems guarantees across the entire working with optimal tool utilization because the processing of the workpiece is always crossways to the feed direction. The LISSMAC system portfolio comprises three machine series. Depending on customer requirements, the M, L or XL series is used. These series differ in the number of assemblies for workpiece processing.

  • Deburring and edge rounding of parts up to 50 mm material thickness
  • Removal of spots on the sheet metal surface
  • Processing both sides of the parts simultaneously eliminates the need of turning heavy parts and processing them for a second time
  • Simultaneous deburring and edge rounding of interior and exterior contours
  • Dry operation
  • Simple, intuitive operation
  • The processing units can be individually adjusted or turned on and off electrically.
  • Maximum productivity while maintaining machining quality
  • The cross-machining principle guarantees optimum tool utilization over the entire working width.
  • Faster and simpler tool change within just a few minutes
  • Modular and compact in modern machine design - smaller footprint
  • Improved work environment - Reduction of dust, dirt and noise
  • Optionally available: Conveyor Technology; Handling Systems, Automation; Custom Solutions
  • Up to 60 % work time savings compared to one-side processing grinding machines

Hwacheon High Speed, High Precision Hi-M G1 VMC for Graphite

 

 

Hwacheon Hi-M G1 vertical machining center (VMC) is specially designed to cut graphite. Its quick and precise performance makes it suitable for dry cutting graphite electrode material used in die mold work. The rigid yet compact structure, with a design based on 3D/FEM analysis, and wide LM guides for X/Y/Z axes provide accuracy.

For high-speed operation, the 24,000 RPM spindle is integrated with a high power motor, and without any parts to transfer power between the motor and spindle. This design minimizes vibration, noise and power loss during high-speed rotation. In addition, a bearing grease lubrication system and synchronous temperature control decreases the influence of external temperature variation and improves smoothness.

For quality results, the Hi-M G1 is engineered with a dustproof/waterproof spindle and an advanced dust reduction system. This system includes a sealed roof design that collects the fine dust generated during the machine process. A dustproof air curtain system prevents dust inflow into each axis. Included as standard, the dust collector operates with 5 HP air volume. The design of the Hi-M G1 door enables convenient cleaning.

The user-friendly Hi-M G1 includes a Siemens 828D controller. It provides flexible, interactive programming, as well as controls that enable high productivity.

Hi-M G1 specifications include a spindle coolant system, an HSK-E40 spindle taper, a 29.52" x 23.62" table with an 881.84 lb. load capacity and a 16 tool ATC. The machine occupies 83.26" x 87.8" of floor space and weighs 10,582 lbs. The dimensions of the dust collector are 38.18" x 38.18".

Other applications of the Hi-M G1 include high precision graphite automotive parts machining.
