Suhner presents new SUNmic 60 Micro Motor System

SUHNER presents new grinding, milling and polishing system

Intelligent technology for tool and mold making

In many technical fields, ultrafine grinding is one of the tasks that gives the product its final polish – in the truest sense of the word. This applies equally to both precision and the visual appeal.

The new SUHNER SUNmic 60 micro motor drive system

One of the leading manufacturers of professional surface treatment tools and machines for over a hundred years, SUHNER now offers an innovative grinding, milling and polishing system, SUNmic 60.

The central element is an intelligent control unit with touch panel that can accept a range of micro motors and tool hand pieces depending on the application. The control part has modern features such as touch screen operation on a glass display, the option to save settings and a rotation speed regulator with tangible resistance.

Key settings are easily legible on a large digital display.



Micro motor system

The actual tools are driven by powerful micro motors whose 280 W place a lot of power in the user’s hand. The compact, brushless BL/DC motors provide an extraordinarily wide speed range of 1000–60,000 rpm and deliver a high torque. In practice, they can be compared with pneumatic technologies but do not need a compressed air supply, operate at lower energy levels and emit virtually zero noise, without exhaust air or oil mist emissions.

One further benefit is that they run virtually free of vibration. The high concentricity safeguards clean and reproducible results in all areas of operation. A special heavy-duty clamping system prevents the millers from shifting. Chuck diameters range from 2.35, 3.0 and 6.0 mm to 1/8 and 1/4 inch.

 
Flexible applications

The new SUNmic 60 micro motor system can be connected to a 90–240 V source, and can therefore be used anywhere in the world. It offers a large number of combinations. The tools range from straight, angle and filing hand pieces to belt grinders. The control unit can be connected to two BL/DC motors and an AC motor.

Advantage: The new control unit is compatible with available micro motors. This is a true multi-purpose tool for many applications.

The new system can be used everywhere a precision finish is desired – for instance, grinding, milling, brushing and polishing in tool and mold making; in aircraft, engine and motor building; in engine tuning; and much more. SUHNER offers a range of matching machines, tools and abrasives that have been tailored specifically to each of these applications. Also an illustrated mold making tool catalog is available.
 

The new SUNmic 60 micro motor system has been designed for complex milling, grinding, brushing and polishing work in tool and mold making; in aircraft, engine and motor building; and similar applications.

Together with the brushless BL/DC motors, the hand pieces deliver the maximum in performance.
The high concentricity and low-vibration running can only benefit the final results.

 

The most important properties of SUNmic 60:

  • Robust control unit with intelligent features and uncluttered digital display
  • Touch screen operation on glass display
  • Rotation speed regulator with tangible resistance
  • Two sockets for hand pieces with the new BL/DC motors and one for conventional motors with carbon brushes
  • Separate, nonvolatile rotation speed memory for each connection
  • Wide, continuous range of rotation speeds of 1000–60,000 rpm
  • High torque
  • Low-vibration running and noiseless operation
  • High concentricity of 0.01 mm
  • Manual and automatic workpiece clamping under high forces
  • Overload protection, dust and spray water protection
  • Option for connecting a pedal

Bulky Part Machining

See Suhner at IMTS 2014 Booth W-1464! Add them to your show schedule HERE.

Large, long or odd shaped parts present various challenges; self-contained Suhner Multi-Master flex shaft machining units provide solutions

Bulky part machining can often become very difficult to integrate into a manufacturing process, when attempting to perform multiple operations on conventional CNC machines. Limited space or axis travel, one-sided spindle or tool accessibility are common restrictions when trying to design and fit multiple tool requirements onto a rigid machine concept. In addition, cycle time demands and accessibility issues from all sides and angles can make a single tool, 3-axis CNC machine option a losing proposition.

Profilbearbeitung

Fig. 1

One new solution involves compact and self-contained single tool Multi-Master flex shaft machining units from SUHNER. These units are modular in design, which means they can be positioned in any direction around a workpiece. In most cases, all operations can be performed in one cycle, thereby reducing the overall machining cycle time to a minimum. Since all tooling modules work simultaneously, the cycle time is basically determined by the longest single machining operation and not the addition of all the tools working together. There are virtually no limitations to part size and the number of tools that are engaged at the same time, with this arrangement.gid machine concept. In addition, cycle time demands and accessibility issues from all sides and angles can make a single tool, 3-axis CNC machine option a losing proposition.

SUHNER offers a complete spindle program with optional feed systems…pneumatic, hydraulic and CNC…available in a quill feed or slide and spindle design. In combination with modern tooling technology, SUHNER  Multi-Master machining units can achieve a high degree of performance and accuracy, when incorporated into a machine design.

Solid carbide tools permit cutting speeds up to 300 m/min in aluminum, at feed rates of 0.5 mm/rev. These rates result in very short cycle times and extended tool life.

Fig. 2

Pictured transfer machine (Fig.1) illustrates a drilling station for an aluminum profile with 11 drilling operations. The actual machine time is 8 seconds for a roof rack railing. The machine is used in 3 shifts and produces a finished part in less than 20 seconds.

Depending on tool diameter, some of the drilling station units operate at 12,000 rpm.

A special purpose machine is shown in Fig. 2. This machine provides 33 holes in an automotive fiberglass- reinforced plastic part in less than 2.5 seconds. Years of experience and research with special tools and materials result in exeptional hole quality.

For all chipmaking operations including drilling, tapping, milling, reaming,  flow drilling, boring, turning, inside and outside grooving etc. with internal or external coolant supply, SUHNER offers a comprehensive machining unit program for machine builders and end users alike.
