MODIG Machine Tool is turning the machining industry upside down with the launch of the IM machine series; the world’s first inverted machining center. The IM machine series is developed to meet the increased demands on machining with tighter tolerance requirements and an ever-faster production rate. Designed to minimize unplanned stops, maximize operating time, and performance by removing one of the biggest reasons for unplanned stops in the machining process; the need to stop the production for manual chip removal.
MEET THE IM MACHINE SERIES
5-axis. Single- or Multi-spindle. Trunnion tables in various sizes. Pallet system, robot loading, or overhead loading. MODIGS’s new IM machine series exceeds the increased demands for tighter tolerances, more complex parts, and components along with faster production times that is significant for today’s manufacturing. With one or multi spindles working from below, the innovative MODIG IM machines deliver excellent results with unsurpassed precision and raised machine parameters. The machines are extremely rigid and extremely fast, with the highest level of accuracy and an optimal chip handling system. Working inverted means easier chip evacuation with less consumption of coolant. The gravity makes the chips fall with a natural flow from the work piece and the working area. The stability, together with the excellent optimized chip handling system, yells for higher performance.
The IM machine series are designed for optimal use of floor space where the design makes it possible to place the machines side by side. The chip conveyor is placed in the back of the machines with easy access for chip handling. Loading of material and unloading of parts, take place either manually from the front or by a pallet system, or with overhead loading. In this way the machines can efficient be used for high productivity in your production lines. Options for pallet system, robot loading, and overhead loading are available.
In other words, the IM machine series sets a new standard for generic 5-axes and component machining. So, let us think inverted.
AVAILABLE IN SEVERAL VERSIONS
With all its inherent machining advantages over traditional processes, the IM machine series is available in different versions: inverted machining center with a single spindle, inverted machining center with a single spindle and mill-turn, and inverted machining centers with multiple spindles. All machines standard with 5-axis. Trunnion tables in various sizes. Pallet system, robot loading, or overhead loading.
Inverted machining center: Single spindle
With a patented design, a single spindle with up to 200 hp (150 kW) working from below, this high-speed inverted machining center sets a new standard for 5-axes machining. Extreme fast cut-to-cut times make the machine suitable for industries characterized by large volumes, quick lead times, and high complexity.
Inverted machining center: Single spindle with Mill-Turn
Our single spindle machines with mill-turn capability can perform multiple operations simultaneously, work very quickly and perform complex operations faster with greater accuracy. Inverted mill-turn machining and an optimal chip handling system meets challenging machining processes and helps to achieve world-class quality, with shortened production times, leading to decreased overall manufacturing costs.
Inverted machining center: Multi-spindles
Our multi-spindle inverted machining center is available with two or four spindles. With a patented design and multi-spindles operating from below, this high-speed machining center sets a new standard for 5-axes machining. The benefits of choosing an inverted machining center with several spindles pushes for increased productivity and reduced production costs. The multi-spindle machines are a great solution for smaller complex high-volume parts.
