EloCrank™ for high volume production
FOR CHANGING GEOMETRIES
EloCrank™ represents the system solution for surface hardening of passenger car crankshafts and the machine can be realized with one or two stations.
EloCrank™ with one station is suited primarily for medium and small series and focuses on hardening of different workpieces. EloCrank™ with two stations is ideal for large series and thus for hardening with high throughput. With EloCrank™, Elotherm has created highly efficient conditions required for a flexible plant structure and use.
FOCUSED ON VERSATILITY
The option packages make the two machines expandable in a varied way. With basic equipment they can be loaded and unloaded from one location. Additionally,the machines can be connected to a gantry loader and are of course equipped with inline transport.
Thanks to the flexible package, the plant can also be adjusted fully automatically to various workpiece lengths and different pitches. The machining range is just as diverse and all crankshafts are machined with high cycle rate.
EloCrank™: SIMPLY CONVINCING
The EloCrank™ hardening machine is convincing in its compact structural shape and high flexibility as well as in its simple changeover capability to other shaft geometries. By control command the plant changes fully automatically to different distances of the main and pin bearings. Manual adjustment can be dispensed and the productive time of the plant is significantly increased.
120 CRANKSHAFTS PER HOUR
On continuous duty in industrial environments, the EloCrank™ with two stations attains cycle times of less than 30 s for a four-cylinder passenger car crankshaft. It means a profitable throughput of up to 120 crankshafts per hour – namely in constantly high quality and within closest tolerances.
