HSD at IMTS 2022: an experience for becoming part of the evolution of components.

IMTS is back. The main trade fair for manufacturers worldwide is scheduled to take place from 12 to 17 September 2022, at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago. Innovation, modularity, flexibility and ground-breaking components: these are the key words for defining the HSD solutions on display in stand n. 338988- South Building, Level 3.

“We're ready to come back "live" with our technologies and the professionalism of our sales team, to recapture the pleasure and excitement of meeting and interacting face-to-face. The Milan-IMTS event has always been a point of reference for the manufacturing industry” says Fabrizio Pierini, HSD Division General Manager, “which is why HSD has to be there with its latest important innovations. IMTS also guarantees a specific safety protocol to protect the health of all participants and visitors”, concludes Pierini.

At IMTS, the new range of electrospindles, ES10 Line, is the starring item at the stand. Designed to be used on vertical machining centres to process components of varying geometry of both small and large batches, and with different types of material: from aluminium to cast iron and advanced materials. In addition, thanks to the variable pre-load on the bearings, the ES10 Line can adapt to suit various machining processes. To meet every possible machining requirement in terms of torque and speed, there are three asynchronous versions: 15kW (entry level), 25kW (high speed) and 30KW (high torque). The ES10 Line electrospindles are fitted with a shaft kit for minimising machine downtime during maintenance work. ES10 Line is designed to be modular so it can adapt to all our customers' applications and offer a wide choice of optional features: high-pressure cutting fluid via the axis, vibration sensor, sensor for measuring the shaft lengthening, heat probes on the front and/or rear bearings. Furthermore, a shaft locking system can be mounted upon request so that not only milling operations but also lathe work can be carried out. The modular, flexible ES10 Line is 100% Made in HSD: it takes motors designed in-house, to guarantee top quality and efficiency.

“IMTS is an important appointment and it's an opportunity to present our collaboration with an outstanding technological partner– explains Laura Alesi, HSD Marketing Manager - like Kuka Italia whose leading role in technology, innovation and digital skills is recognised worldwide. In the current technological scenario, HSD is facing the challenge of the digital revolution, seizing the advantages and opportunities it can offer: thanks to its partnership with KUKA Italia, the company is supplementing its own specific skills and knowledge with those of its new partners, putting the customer at the heart of everything and reinforcing the value of the solutions it provides.”

"Robotic application" means work islands - also known as milling islands or robotic cells - formed of man-like industrial robots equipped with electrospindle and, depending on the specific needs, with a fixed or rotating table (embedded or tilting) where the workpiece is held in place. The aim is to publicise and support the companies that make the robotic cells, showing products that HSD has developed. Thanks to our team of experts, three macro-classes have been created: W+, W++ and W+++. Each one is made up of a set of electrospindles compatible in terms of weight (and therefore with the "payload" or the robot capacity) with a certain range of KUKA industrial robots. All the specifications of the three electrospindle lines and of the other lines for robotic applications are included in the new Robot catalogue, with an indication of all the types of material that can be machined. HSD covers every application requirement: from wood and composite materials to light alloys, steel, cast iron and even glass and stone.

Apart from these two important innovations, HSD will also be presenting an entire range of solutions dedicated to the machining of metals and alloys, including milling heads with with HSD Direct Drive motors, single-sided and double-sided rotary tables (also with HSD Direct Drive motors), and an extensive selection of electrospindles for machining metals that covers a wide range of power and rotation speed levels whilst at the same time guaranteeing top performance and reliability.
