Tornos EvoDeco machines continue to meet the needs of the most demanding bar-turners with ease! Already recognised as highly advanced, this platform is undergoing constant improvement
During the Journées Horlogères open days (March 3 to 6, 2015), Tornos will unveil a complete overhaul of these iconic machines. We met with Massimo Tidei, project manager, and Philippe Charles, product manager, both of whom work for Tornos.
The fastest machines on the market
“EvoDeco machines are equipped with the best kinematics on the market: no other current solution is able to offer the same level of performance and sophistication as an EvoDeco. It was of crucial importance that we kept ahead of the market in this way, as it is vital to Tornos and to our customers, who need to be the best in their field! The performance of our machines is mirrored by the success to our customers”, notes Philippe Charles.
“In fact, since the trend is towards a reduction in the size of production runs, it is increasingly important that the first parts are perfect. The machine’s thermal system must therefore comprise the shortest possible loops to reduce the warm-up time as much as possible”, Massimo Tidei explains. The machine has also been redesigned in terms of rigidity to ensure it offers improved machining performance. The two new EvoDeco machines are also equipped with cyclical lubrication.
Two machines, 4 versions
Available in versions with 10 or 8 linear axes, EvoDeco 10 and EvoDeco 16 machines take two C axes as standard. The two turning machines are equipped with synchronous motor powered spindles. This technology, unique on this type of machine, means that the machine’s productivity can be increased significantly when machining parts which require frequent spindle stops. The cycle time is reduced by more than 30%!
In addition to its highly comprehensive equipment, the EvoDeco 16 machine can, for example, be equipped with a B axis for positioning in back operation, which is particularly useful for creating angled implants for the dental industry. The EvoDeco 10 machine, however, can receive up to 3 hobbing devices, one of which can be used in back operation, making it without doubt the fastest hobbing machine on the market!
