- Time advantages of up to 80 % in comparison to milling.
- Additional increase in efficiency as no spindle stop is required.
- Increased process safety with Schwanog PWP polygon cutter.
With polygon turning, not only can you manufacture flat surfaces, but also radii. Since no spindle stop is necessary, as it is the case with milling, polygon turning with Schwanog leads to an enormous time advantage and a striking reduction of part costs.
How does it work?
Part and tool are turning and require the same conditions as with polygon turning of flats:
A corresponding driven tool or a tool spindle is turning synchronically to the main spindle.
The turning direction of the tool and the cutter are now reversed, in comparison to polygon turning of flats, so that the part and the cutter run in the same direction. Due to the higher circumferential speed of the tool, the cutter passes the part and a radius is established on the turned part.
Important to know:
- The size of the radii is mainly dependent on the fly circle diameter.
- Therefore this diameter must be checked and adapted in design for each application.
- Radii from 7.5 to 20 mm can be produced if the tool holder and fly circle diameter permit it.
- If two radii, offset by 180°, are to be cut, then considerably larger radii can be produced, since the transmission ratio between the tool spindle and the main spindle can be changed from 1:1 to 2:1.
