In February 2022, STAUFF commissioned another state-of-the-art CNC multi-spindle automatic lathe at its Werdohl Ehrenfeld site, which will be used to manufacture straight tube fittings and connectors from bar material.
With this investment, STAUFF is responding to the continued high demand for hydraulic tube connectors of the STAUFF Connect series.
The unit permanently uses up to 16 tools at eight machining stations, which machine the workpiece step by step until it is finished. The productivity of these multi-spindle automatic lathes is about seven times higher than that of a single-spindle machine.
The STAUFF Connect product group is closely aligned with the market requirements and contains an extensive range of hydraulic tube connectors made of carbon steel for metric tubes with outer diameters ranging from 4 to 42 mm in accordance with ISO 8434-1 and DIN 2353 respectively.
The product range is completed by check and alternating valves for inline installation, thread reducers as well as blanking plugs and screws.
Automated assembly machinery and hardened, wear-resistant tools can be provided with a range of testing and inspection equipment and enable the reliable assembly of tube connectors – both for series production in the workshop and on-site.
Because of its versatility and flexibility, the STAUFF Form EVO tube forming system is undoubtedly the best solution for series production, in particular for applications with highest requirements with regards to safety, reliability and repeatability as well as process stability.
