Today we present together with the film team of our video partner Video Vision the new WOTAN S6A external grinding machine of our brand WEMA-GLAUCHAU.
The WOTAN S6A 3000 was newly developed in Glauchau and is suitable for external and internal cylindrical grinding of heavy and long components. The machine is used in the following areas: railway, aerospace, general mechanical engineering and automotive.
The cross-slide configuration allows safe machining of components with a length of up to 3000mm and a weight of up to 1.5 tons with minimum space requirements due to the very rigid machine design, highest precision can be achieved even with high dynamics and in harsh environments. The S6A is equipped with a direct-drive workpiece spindle with a maximum speed of 300 revolutions per minute, with a run-out accuracy of up to 0.5 µ and with a maximum torque of 840Nm. It also features a hydraulically clamping tailstock with a stroke of 150mm and an infinitely adjustable rotary table, which allows angular adjustment of up to 270 degrees, depending on the equipment. The workpiece spindle as well as the reistock can be individually positioned on the machine table.
Further equipment features are:
Furthermore, the machine is equipped with the latest generation of Siemens control and is programmed via the in-house factory-satt oriented user interface. A wide variety of technologies can be implemented with this grinding machine.
The maximum travels of the axes are 4000mm in Z and 600mm in X. The equipment can be adapted according to customer requirements, for example with two grinding supports, which makes it possible to optimize the production output by simultaneous machining on one workpiece. Furthermore, the spindle turret can be equipped with up to two external grinding spindles and one internal grinding spindle. This also enables the machining of very extensive and compact components in one clamping. With the WOTAN S6A, we have succeeded in developing a machine that combines the highest precision and flexibility in the machining of the largest components.
