MOTION CONTROL: In 2009, Ondrives saw the purchase of more state-of-the-art machines by, including:
A Doosan HC400 twin pallet horizontal machining centre, to compliment the high precision high speed 7 pallet version we already have giving more flexibility and capacity. This is a linear scale high precision machine with probing.
TESA-Scan 50 CE Plus optical non-contact scanner purchased to enhance Ondrives measuring capabilities.
To complement its existing Gleason-Pfauter P90 Gear Hobber, Ondrives has introduced a twin to maintain its trend toward precision engineering. The company is, even on these new models, able to thread grind with CBN wheels making ground worms for extreme precision even after the hardening process.
Ondrives says this continued investment in high-end machinery enables the company to offer its customers the very best level of quality and precision components as complete control is maintained in-house to exacting standards.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
