WFL Millturn Technologies Showcases Cutting-Edge Innovations at EMO Exhibition

by Anna

WFL Millturn Technologies, a leading provider of turning-boring-milling solutions, is set to impress attendees at the upcoming EMO exhibition (Hall 13, Stand B51). The company will present two cutting-edge machines – the M50 MILLTURN / 3000mm and the M80X MILLTURN / 4500mm – both equipped with the advanced Sinumerik ONE control system.

A highlight of the event will be a live demonstration of the M80X MILLTURN, showcasing the machining of a gear shaft with meticulous precision, including measurement of the gear teeth. The machines’ innovative design and incorporation of Sinumerik ONE ensure optimal performance and enhanced user experience.


Another attention-grabbing feature is a mobile robot deployed on an automated guided vehicle (AGV), demonstrating tool and workpiece loading and unloading processes with remarkable efficiency.


The M80X MILLTURN, boasting a generous machining length of 4500mm and a turning diameter of 1000mm, includes a grinding attachment and a vibration-damped Silent ToolsTM Plus boring bar. Visitors will witness the machine’s capabilities firsthand, as it expertly handles the machining of an 800mm diameter and 1824mm length gear shaft.


Furthermore, the M50 MILLTURN / 3000mm will be on display, showcasing live demonstrations of various tasks such as machining a power generation shaft, turbine blades, fir tree profiles, impellers, and generator shaft profiles.


One of the standout features of the showcased machines is the integration of Sinumerik ONE from Siemens, providing a modern and user-friendly control system. The incorporation of SIMATIC S7-1500F PLC results in significantly faster PLC cycle times, optimizing productivity and machining quality.

With its range of advanced technology functions, Sinumerik ONE enhances machining speed, contour accuracy, and overall quality, leading to increased productivity, flexibility, and efficiency.

The exhibition will also feature a mobile robot operating on an AGV, highlighting its capabilities in loading and unloading tools and workpieces. These robots operate autonomously, avoiding obstacles and seamlessly integrating into dynamic production environments.

Additionally, WFL will present the incorporation of smart sensors into their tools, providing detailed information on tool conditions and machining states. This sensor technology enhances transparency and process monitoring, ensuring reliable and economical production.

EMO visitors will have the opportunity to experience ultrasonic measurement live, demonstrating its potential for autonomous and low-personnel production. Ultrasonic measurement proves invaluable in assessing and compensating for tool drift in deep center holes.

Other highlights include the myWFL Cockpit operational data acquisition system, showcasing machine and program states, productivity, and energy usage. The newly integrated myWFL Energy device provides real-time power data and energy consumption metrics for each workpiece.

WFL’s new machine design will also be unveiled at EMO, featuring a modern color scheme and logo, marking a significant step forward in the company’s visual identity.
