Nicolás Correa recently participated in the latest edition of the BIEMH exhibition in Spain, showing its Correa Fox model with UAD milling head and a Norma model with rotary table.
During the event, Nicolás Correa took part in the 13th National Awards for Innovation in Digital and Advanced Manufacturing Technologies, entering the category of ‘Machine Tool, components, accessories and tools innovation’ with its UDX milling head.
The UDX is a mechanical transmission milling head with rotation every 0.02° thanks to the double Hirth coupling system (patented worldwide). UDX heads are able to perform 10,000 rpm, and were featured at the show on the Fox 50 model.
Consisting of two 45° bodies, the UDX is designed and built to withstand heavy-duty cutting conditions, as well as semi-finishing and finishing work with precision and speed, says the company. The Fox 50 also includes a 60-station automatic tool changer and a Heidenhain TNC 640 control. Furthermore, Correa says that its total symmetrical design improves the geometry of the machine, which remains more stable when faced with temperature changes.
The Correa Norma is a flexible machine suitable for roughing and finishing operations. The model exhibited at BIEMH was a Norma 25 with integrated rotary table. Also presented was the Correa Delfos 4.0 system, which allows monitoring based on the cloud, automatically recording and analysing machine data to improve efficiency and the production process.
According to AFM Advanced Manufacturing Technology, the machine tool sector has recently achieved a record annual turnover in Spain, at €1690m.
