Star's original motion control system facilitates driving of high-speed oriented machine configuration equipped with counter-face gang tool post +4-axis ATT.
Improved turning performance exceeds that of conventional CNC machines, increasing productivity and reducing cycle time. Using the Star motion control system, tool selection is optimised and the accommodation of of continuous, smooth tool path control cam be achieved without interference, slowing or stopping.
Machine construction completely separates front and back machining. In this way the productive division of processes is optimised which reduces machining time significantly.
By controlling both longitudinal and vertical movements of the tool posts during counter-facing while using the main spindle reduces idle time appreciatively. This also makes the simultaneous machining of selected operations feasible. Again this reduces cutting time and delivers marked improvement in productivity.
