The DMG Mori CTX 450 ecoline and 650 ecoline are the first jointly developed turning machines from DMG and Mori Seiki and come with advanced components. The large turning and spindle passages, along with the rigid and compact design, demonstrates how much emphasis is put on ergonomics. Emphasis is placed on top technology with proven components at the best price.
The work area is designed to provide optimal chip fall and clean up. Two different chip conveyors (to the right or the rear) are available and the large doors also provide quick access to the work area. The machines offer unique precision, even under heavy machining conditions, thanks to the stable construction and high thermo stability. The large dimensional ball screws (40 x 10 mm for the CTX 450, and 50 x 10 mm for the CTX 650) and wide linear guides ensure the best rigidity values and positioning precision of 0,02 mm, with the direct distance measurement system even 0,008 mm is achieved.
Both models feature a turret for 12 tools with VDI 40 / 50 holder and rapid traverses of 30 m / min in all axes. Furthermore, the use of six block tools is made possible. The comprehensive equipment of the models promises maximum efficiency. An upgrade of the complete machine right up to turn and mill full machining is possible thanks to the task-optimised configurations.
Setting the machine apart from their competitors are a FEM-optimised cast iron bed, large ballscrews, linear guideways for high rigidity and top positioning accuracy, and small footprints of 4.9 sq m and 9.8 sq m respectively.
The CTX 450 ecoline operates at spindle speeds up to 4,000 rpm, while the CTX 650 ecoline, with its water-cooled motor, provides maximum torque of 2,000 nm for heavy machining.
Regenerative braking of the spindle and axis drives saves energy. Linear guideways minimise friction and also reduce energy consumption through the use of smaller motors. The machines also use less lubricant, which further mitigates environmental impact.
The CTX 450 ecoline can be fitted with the chip conveyor at the back rather than at the side, reducing the installation width of the machine by up to 35 percent.
