Multi-functional tooling system GE 100
Efficient end machining
Whether in vehicle construction for the machining of brake, hydraulic and fuel lines, shock absorber housings, gas pressure absorber housings, pipes for side impact protection, hydro mount housings or in the sanitary industry for the machining of fittings, water lines, buffer storage and heat distributors: Users from small enterprises to market leader in numerous industries swear by the advantages of GE 100.
Facing, turning, internal and external chamfering of pipes and rods in only one operating step. The flexibility of this modular tooling solution again and again turns the standard tool GE 100 into a “special tool” for the most varying of machining tasks – and this ex-stock.
GE100 – Multifunctional Toolsystems
Intelligent modular system: One holder, flexible adaptation
The standardised modular system impresses with its adaptability to different diameters, materials and requirements on precision. Thanks to its flexibility, machining diameters from 5 to 240 mm are possible with GE 100.
The tool head is universally applicable: It allows the adaptation to all known machine holders, including all quick change systems. By exchanging the holders or the clamping sleeve the machining of different workpieces with one and the same basic holder, i.e. tool head is possible.
The bore in the tool head serves as a clamping sleeve holder for centre drills, step drills, form drills or boring bars. The setting of axial and radial movable holders is simply via a screw.
The standard DIN/ISO insert programme for the holders is specially adapted to the GE 100 user requirements. The indexable inserts are highly precision ground. This enables maximum component precision, repeatability, low cutting forces and therefore also a high process reliability. Ground chip grooves produce controlled short chips that are absolutely essential for precise machining in a multi-insert application. The insert programme consists of various carbide qualities as well as diverse coatings. Therefore, optimal tool life, cutting values and low unit costs can be achieved.
Combine up to 5 operating steps with only one tool!
- Depending on machining task the tool heads are available with 2, 3 or 4 holders for clamping holders.
- Alternatively, the GE 100 system can be combined with all tool holders with an interface within the tool head.
- Bore to hold clamping sleeves for centre and step drills. Simple assembly of drilling tool from the outside.
- The clamping holders are axially and radially adjustable via setting screws, making the machining of different workpiece diameters possible with only one tool.
- Precision ground ISO indexable inserts with application oriented chip groove (indexing accuracy ± 0.013mm).
- Two to four adjustable clamping holders in combination with a centre or step drill make complete machining in a matter of seconds.
Fields of application:
- Machining of pipes, shafts and housings
- Machining of rods
- Pin machining
- Facing and centering as preparation for the turning between centres
- Long pipe manufacture
- Manufacturers of pipe fittings
- Automotive industry and engine manufacturers
- Fittings industry
- Steel manufacturers
Whether in vehicle construction for the machining of brake, hydraulic or fuel lines, shock absorber housings, gas pressure absorber housings, pipes in side impact protection, hydro mountings, housings or in the sanitary industry for the machining of fittings, water lines, buffer storage and heating distributors: Users from small enterprises to market leader in numerous industries swear by the advantages of GE 100.
Special requirements – multi-functional solutions
With the most varying components in vehicles of any type countless pipes and shafts are installed. In addition, a multitude of housings require several operating steps in various materials. The modular structure of the GE 100 system enables the assembly of the modular tool from standard products. Designed for the machining strategy of the user, it creates an individual customer solution. Inserts in various tool material qualities, diverse coatings as well as insert and tool geometries furthermore allow an economically efficient machining of numerous materials.
- Seat cross bracing
- Shock absorbers
- Fuel and oil lines, injector systems, brake lines
- Transmission housings
Special requirements – multi-functional solutions
Pipes and containers for the sanitary and building technology are often machined to shape. The multi-functional tooling system GE 100 permits an economically efficient machining.
- Pipe fittings
- Water lines
- Heating manifolds
