The new TH3-MT multifunction machining centre from Juaristi is optimized for milling and turning work.

The new machining centre is a development of the TH series, the JUARISTI five axis multi function centres, incorporating a turning table and a special head with a design optimized for turning operations. The centre includes a comprehensive automation package and has a renewed design to improve its ergonomics, extend useful life and optimize chips and cutting fluid management.

The TH3-MT maintains the main benefits of the TH series solutions: high dynamics (up to 40 m/min (131 ft/min) rapid feed with accelerations of 3 m/s² (9.8 ft/ s²)) and compatibility with latest generation high feed tools and excellent chip removal. Its symmetrical design and column-centred head boost precision and cutting capacity.

A new special turning head and turning table have been incorporated. The new head, developed by Juaristi and named ACD8, is a universal model that provides five axis machining and reaches speeds of 8,000 min-1, at high power (60 kW) and spindle torque (1,600 Nm).

The turning table incorporated in the machine has a plate diameter of Ø1,600 mm (optionally up to Ø2,000 mm) with a maximum speed of 400 min-1 and maximum part capacity of 5 tons in turning and 10 tons in milling. Rotation speed of up to 400 min-1.

The new machine comes with a range of automation systems that can be adapted to customer requirements, including a quick-change matrix tool changer with capacity that can be expanded to 450 tools, and an FMS multipallet system.

The TH3-MT has gone through a comprehensive redesign process to achieve a more stylized and ergonomic unit. The new design achieves a more compact layout for better use of floor space. In addition, it optimizes the chips and cutting fluid collection system by improving the autonomy of the machine and avoiding non-productive time spent cleaning it manually.

Another design improvement is the coating of the enclosure interior in stainless steel, which protects and extends the life of the machine.

More uniform grip with jaw forming ring grips
