With their most recent development, the machine engineering experts from Fill have reached an important milestone for the production of future vehicle architectures. The new generation SYNCROMILL D11 (single machine) and SYNCROMILL D22 (dual machine) represent the best solution for applications involving high-precision machining of large-volume components. Side members, front and rear axle carriers, chassis components, structural vehicle parts, and battery trays are manufactured extremely economically in the highest quality on the new SYNCROMILL D machining centers. Optimizations in chip-to-chip time, an enlarged machining space, and sensational acceleration values lead to a significant reduction in component costs. With the new SYNCROMILL generation, Fill has achieved end-to-end digitalization in metalworking in the sense of industry 4.0. This allows machines and systems to be utilized even more efficiently.
20 PERCENT LOWER MACHINING COSTS
"The symbiosis of virtual and real processes – i.e., digital twin – opens up completely new perspectives in terms of planning, material utilization, productivity, and system intelligence. The entire production process is elevated to a higher level, both in terms of quality and cost-effectiveness," explains Friedrich Dallinger, Head of the Metal Machining Technology Competence Center at Fill. Chip-to-chip time has been reduced from 4.5 to 3.6 seconds. The machining area of the machine has been enlarged by ten percent within the same external dimensions. The increase in machine stiffness and optimization of feed, speed, and acceleration parameters significantly reduce the machining times even further. This in turn reduces the machining costs of the new SYNCROMILL D generation by an average of 20 percent.
