INDUSTRY 4.0 at Röders
The German machine tool manufacturers organized in the machine tool association VDW currently define standards for INDUSTRY 4.0 digital networks with machine tools. The OPC UA technology will be the basis of those networks. Röders therefore already has implemented automation projects for its customers based on OPC UA technology. In consequence, it will be very easy to take over the standards of the VDW for INDUSTRY 4.0 once finally defined. Röders machines will be immediately fully compatible.
Moulds for Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR)
Parting surfaces of injection moulds for liquid silicone rubber (LSR) are machined with high precision to final dimensions. No rework is necessary. The moulds are directly used for flash-free production.
HEIDENHAIN®# and ISO-Code (G-Code)
For minimizing training periods and facilitating the change of operators among machines with different NC-Controls, Röders machines may be programmed in HEIDENHAIN®#-NC-Code (with limited scope) or ISO-Code (G-Code). The NC-Program is created with simple macros at the control. Operators knowing the NC-commands in the respective code do not need extra training.
#Heidenhain is the registered trade mark of the Dr. Johannes Heidenhain GmbH
Reflector, material ELMAX 58 HRC
- Machining results:
• Precision +/- 1 µm
• Surface quality Ra 0,010 µm
New possibilities in the watch industry
The combination of high precision air bearing spindles running up to 90000 rpm with the linear motor direct drive technology of the Röders HSC machines allow for up to now unknown qualities in the watch industry. On the exhibition EPHJ in Geneva specialists were convinced of the superior quality directly at the machine. With the long-standing competence of Röders in automation the machine may be adapted to a highly efficient manufacturing process at the customer.
