Most work-pieces are gearboxes and other machinery housings. The user produces these items on both a contract basis for its OEM customer (i.e., to support the OEM’s new equipment production) and on an as-needed basis to support the users’ own MRO business. The customer also uses the machine to produce or remanufacture a variety of parts as needed.
Momentum Machines Employed
This installation utilizes an MVL-16M Texas Edition (TX) package machine. The TX package “supersizes” the machine main spindle power to 60/75kW (80/100HP) and adds maximum turning height via a 250mm (9.8″) ram extension and column riser. All MVL-16M models feature 240mm (9.44″) rams, 1,600mm (63″) diameter tables, and 2,000mm (78″) swing capacity.
The MVL-16M allowed the customer to not only pull in MRO-related work which they had been outsourced but also to begin providing machining for an OEM’s new gearbox production. Machining performance has been excellent across a wide variety of work.
