Extensive Machine Equipment
With its wide range of products, KNUTH Machine Tools was able to address both of these issues. For the lathe, Lütgert selected the Turnado 230/1000 PRO, which now has already been in use for 1.5 years. For the machining center, the choice was the compactly built Vector 1300 M. “Because the 1400 mm x 700 mm machining table has optimal room to move in the machining area, even large workpieces can safely be placed and clamped,” explains KNUTH sales associate Christoph Ziebarth concerning one advantage. The Vector M series’ standard 30-bar spindle interior cooling (SIC) and double filter, as well as the chain-type conveyor with chip container, allow deep hole boring adapted to the individual workpiece and with optimal cutting data. Also standard on the Vector 1300 M are a state-of-the-art Siemens 828D CNC control unit with Shopmill and a 24-station tool changer with dual-arm gripper.
