New turning centers for more efficiency

The third of three newly acquired double-spindle turning centers went into operation at GfA on Monday.

The worm shafts for GfA ELEKTROMATEN are machined on the ultra-modern CNC machines. Two spindles with the respective tool turrets and automatic workpiece transfer allow complete metal-cutting turning operations in one operation, before further processing in grinding processes as well as forming machining of the worm shafts on the cold rolling machines begins.


The new machines work more efficiently, which is noticeable, for example, in lower energy consumption and a longer service life of the coolant / lubricant - important aspects, especially from the point of view of the increasing importance of ecological requirements.

The new turning centers are part of GfA's permanent modernization processes in all divisions of the company.
