Worldwide premieres for high productivity processes

Evidence of this are worldwide premieres which will be showcased by some of the brands from the group including solutions developed for high productivity processes by MAG and VDF.

At EMO 2017, historical Italian brands of the group, Jobs, Rambaudi, Sachman and Sigma, leaders in the production of high performance milling machines and machining centres, in particular for 5-axis high speed and high power machining technologies, will exhibit three machines: the overhead gantry milling centre Jobs eVer 7, the horizontal milling centre with moving column Sachman Frazer and the simultaneous 5-axis vertical machining centre Sigma Flexi 5.

The overhead gantry milling center Jobs eVer 7 is the high productivity solution with excellent dynamic performance for large aerospace parts and automotive dies machining.

Machining large size components

Conceived for machining large-size aeronautical components and automotive dies, Jobs eVer 7 features high dynamics, high material removal rate, automatic head changing system, full enclosure for efficient containment of chips and coolant and wide possibilities of customized solutions and automation.

Frazer, in configuration with a turning table, is characterized by minimized foundation costs, maximum rigidity, high dynamics, several milling heads available depending on different machining requirements. Flexi 5 is then designed for machining of small and large batches of complex 5-side workpieces in one positioning in precision mechanics and in moulds and dies production.

Sachman Frazer is presented in a Millturn version with rotary table integrated into the fixed worktable for finishing and turning operations.

The recent acquisitions at the EMO 2017

Furthermore the rotary transfer machines from the company IMAS, which joined the group in 2016, will be presented.
Lastly, FFG continues its developing strategy with the aim to deliver a more complete service, and has recently acquired Italian brands Meccanodora, Morara and Tacchella through its affiliate company Grinding Technology Srl.

Grinding technology in the metal cutting portfolio of Fair Friend Group

With this acquisition, FFG added grinding technology to its metal cutting portfolio, enhancing the coverage of the process chain to include finishing operations.

In particular, the Tacchella brand will exhibit at the show the Pulsar product, an high volume production cylindrical external grinding machine conceived for several application fields.
