Looking to the future: why multi-spindle machines and automation modules are the right choice.
Industries such as e-mobility in particular place great demands on manufacturers in terms of flexibility and future viability. SW has been successfully supporting its customers in these areas for years, and has always focused on multispindle machining centers. This year at AMB, for example, the benefits of energy-efficient multispindle machines are once again coming to the fore. “A four-spindle machine shortens cycle times by up to 60 percent compared to single-spindle machines. At the same time, it saves around 70 percent of the footprint and consumes only about half the amount of energy,” says André Harter, citing important factors for a future-proof and sustainable investment. The latter in particular is ensured by the fact that SW also supports its customers with customized automation solutions that can be flexibly retrofitted. “Reducing non-productive time, increasing quality, improving ergonomics – with a modular system divided into hardware and software, we always find the optimum solution. In this respect in particular, I’m looking forward to interesting discussions at the trade show.”
