More fexibility, even for small and medium batches

Schwäbische Werkzeugmaschinen (SW), a manufacturer of multi-spindle machining centres for the large-scale production of metal components, will give a world premiere of its new BA 711 Space will take place at the AMB 2022 trade fair in Stuttgart later this month. The new system is of interest for the production of battery housings, vehicles for rail transport or commercial vehicles, as well as for mechanical engineering or the aerospace industry.

With the BA 711 Space, SW has expanded its machine series to include single-station machines without a double swivel beam. Instead of the company’s typical double pivoting support, these systems only have a rotary axis with a clamping bridge. The elimination of the partition wall expands the available space enormously, allowing users to machine significantly larger parts with the same machine footprint.

SW has also broken new ground with regard to changeover flexibility and automation, among other things, by optionally equipping the workpiece carriers with integrated zero-point clamping systems. Three series of these new machining centres are currently available with different equipment variants.

Like the company’s previous machining centres of the BA 7 series, these systems are characterised by their monoblock design, high axis speeds and the high performance of the spindles. Robust ballscrews drive all three main axes. All of this means that the new systems are suitable for the medium and large series production of large-format, complex components.

The BA 711 Space, with a spindle and a workpiece carrier on the swivel bridge, and a working area of 1350 x 1175 x 650 mm, is available without the system taking up more floor space. SW’s sister model, the BA 721 Space, has the same significantly larger Y stroke of 1175 mm and can therefore also process longer components.
