Launched at the recent EMO – Hannover the MORARA MT Multimatic is the new combined grinder from IMT MORARA for simultaneous bore, end-faces and external grinding, ideal for large production runs.
In its brand new version, the machine is available in three different sizes: 250, 500 & 900 mm, – maximum rotating work-piece diameter.
The machine bed is a monolithic structure in stabilized cast-iron, designed using 3D solid parametric modeling techniques and FEM analysis. Wheel carriages slide on hardened, preloaded guide ways with rollers and the axis movement is actuated by brush less motors via very high precision ball screws.

The internal grinding unit features two CNC controlled axes to perform several different processes: internal diameters and/or end-faces, plunge grinding with CNC-dressed wheels, etc.
The solution is given by a cross-shaped carriage with a turret for two or more spindles, swiveling on a Torque motor with movement resolution of 0.0001°.
As an option, the work head can be equipped with an automatic swiveling system driven by a Torque motor, to grind complex profiles by axis interpolation.
The external grinding unit features two CNC controlled working axes at an angle to each other and hosts a grinding wheel with diameter 610 mm x 70 mm wide with a peripheral speed of 50 m/s.
The internal wheel carriage carries a turret where it is possible to place up to two high frequency spindles.

The control is a Siemens continuous-path type 840D.
The new software is patented by IMT and was developed with the collaboration of all the brands within the group. The main aim of this development was to significantly reduce retooling times.
The grinding machines of all the brands belonging to the IMT Group feature innovative technologies, modular structures which are expandable depending on the technical issue and, like never before, are presented as a unique product. The result of the synergies among the best Italian builders of grinding machines, today united together.
