Special machinery S-14000-Duo: Stacked twin spindle horizontal machine for front axle beams

The processing of truck front axle beams with a length of approx. 2,000mm requires processing machines with a large working area. With our double-spindle, horizontal machining center with a vertical stacked spindle arrangement, we make optimum use of the workspace:

The challenge with front axles is that the raw parts differ in overall length by up to ±8mm. There is also a requirement for the minimum wall thickness of the cone bores.
This means that the distances between the cone bores must be manufactured in relation to the workpiece length.
