SAMAG at the Moulding Expo in Stuttgart

“The Moulding Expo covers classic tool, model and mold making as well as plastics technology and metal working”, explains Lutz Jakob, Sales Manager of Deep Drilling Technology at SAMAG Saalfelder Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH. “For us this is a convincing concept, we are looking forward to the premiere.”

The main focus of SAMAG’s appearance at the trade show is above all the TFZ deep-hole drilling and milling centers, which have proven successful in the steel industry, among other places. For example, Böhler-Uddeholm company uses the machines for mechanical processing for a customer: They had a TFZ 3-1500 deep-hole drilling and milling center in operation since summer of 2012. Their experiences with that center were so positive that Böhler-Uddeholm has placed another order for a deep-hole drilling and milling center from SAMAG: the TFZ 2-1000 machine will be delivered at the end of March, 2015. The combination of deep-hole drilling and milling was the determining factor for the company, since frequently in addition to drilling, clients also need recesses like pockets or connection threads on the components. In addition, this eliminates cutting points and set-up processes and significantly boosts the efficiency of the pre-processing. Not least, the structural design and high rigidity of the machining center permit especially precise milling operations. With the new order there will then be three SAMAG machines in use within the group – because a TFZ 4-2000 deep-hole drilling and milling center has been in use since August of 2014 at Bruderus Edelstahl GmbH, which is part of the same group of companies.

The WBM production series is a second priority for SAMAG. SAMAG delivers these 1- through 6-spindle deep-hole drilling machines for the serial production of rotationally symmetrical workpieces as a single machine or in automated design. They are designed for universal use and facilitate the machining of a broad spectrum of components made of steel, cast iron and non-ferrous metals (NE). The machines are not only highly precise, but also extremely robust and designed for long-term use. To further reduce the piece and tools costs, SAMAG is continuously working on improving the WBM production series.
