      • Vario

      • Extremely precise. Extremely flexible. Extremely profitable.

        vario machines meet the demands of the pump and oil industries to perfection. Around the globe, the vario represents a guarantee of the successful production of single- and multi-lobe rotors and stator cores, not merely since yesterday, but for the past four decades.

        Variable. More variable. vario.

        The vario is the epitome of maximum flexibility. In one or several passes, vario machines peel rotors and stator cores for the pump industry. In addition, the machines excel in the point radius milling of multi-lobe rotors and stator cores for the mud motors employed in the oilfield industry.

        vario times five.

        vario machines are available in five sizes and can thus handle any diameter range. They combine single- and double-lobe peeling and point radius milling in a single machine and also provide the stability and precision that customers are seeking. Moreover, encapsulation ensures safety and cleanliness.

        • Suitable for any dimensions! Vario machines come in five sizes, which provides you with the advantage of being equipped to deal with every diameter range.

      • Pick up classic whirling & milling machine

      • Fast. Faster. pick up classic!

        pick up stands for high-speed unit switching. pick up is a special machining centre that in an instant can change over completely from whirling to milling operation due to an end milling spindle or angle head. pick up operates using the weinCAD® programming system.

        pick up! pick up!

        pick up has accelerated the success of the plastics industry and cuts an outstanding figure worldwide in the production of screws for injection moulding machines and extruders. The combination of machinery, plus software and support is globally unique.

        This whirling process optimises the manufacture of all standard extrusion and injection moulding screws for the plastics industry by means of end, special end, and circumferential milling and hobbing. Therefore, if you are looking for the best possible solution, you merely need to pick up a pick up.

        • machines come in four sizes and are thus suitable for every diameter segment.
        • pick up classic convinces due to the multi-functionality provided by cost-efficient whirling, circumferential and end milling in a single machine.
        • machines stand out due to maximum stability and precision during the processing of all standard screws.
        • pick up classic is a synonym for minimised machining times.
        • pick up classic machines are fully encapsulated, which increases workplace safety and cleanliness.

      • The new pick up

      • Optimised. Perfected. Completed.

        What epitomises the new generation of Weingärtner machines? Quite simply the fact that it improves the cost-efficient, complete machining of feed-, extrusion and injection moulding screws. At Weingärtner, brainwaves produce fresh ideas, which in turn solve problems and enhance customer success. The end-result? There is nothing average about Weingärtner.

        Systematic. Advanced. Thinking. The pick up.

        The new pick up machining centre represents the systematic further development of the pick up classic machine series, which has proven so successful in the plastics industry. pick up facilitates the production of complete screw geometries and once again demonstrates Weingärtner’s weakness; a weakness for perfection.

        Clear. Concentrated. Customer-oriented.

        Customers set Weingärtner a challenge and its team responded with persistence. They asked themselves how the cost efficiency of the production of “small” screws with diameters of up to 150mm and “big” screws with diameters of up to 400mm could be optimised? And the result proved convincing, as customers are now using the new pick up worldwide.

        The concept:

        In the new pick up concept, Weingärtner has linked both proven and innovative mpmc technology. Consequently, the machine employs a blend of the tried and tested cutting concept used in the pick up classic machine series, with prism jaw steadies, a stable headstock and tailstock, in combination with the powerful and flexible machining technology of the mpmc turning and milling centre.

        The result:

        A high-performance milling and optional turining machining centre for the complete processing of plastic screws.


        • A complete system from programming to the finished workpiece.
        • Time savings during programming because existing weinCAD® program data can be reused in production.
        • Increased flexibility derived from the fact that the pick up can be utilised purely for milling, or as a turning and milling centre, either with or without a tool magazine.
        • The safety and cleanliness provided by standard features that include an encapsulated working area with emulsion mist extraction, barrier-free access to the workpiece and automatic safety gates, as well as a mobile control console that can be rotated and height-adjusted along the entire length of the machine.
        • Uncompromising cost efficiency during complete screw machining derived from the highly flexible milling process in tandem with the optional turning application.

      • Multi product machining center - mpmc

      • The mpmc is our pride and joy and our team of highly qualified engineers continually strive to improve and develop it further.

        Since its conception, the mpmc with its integrated software package, has had such a high degree of customization potential that, although we still talk about a series, it really is a complete solution tailor-made to your specific and unique requirements. Be assured to receive a world-class, high-end machine that delivers on the Weingärtner promise.

        This remarkable machine regularly sets new standards for complete horizontal machining of various types of complex components, including:

        • injection molding screws
        • extruder screws
        • turbo-generator shafts
        • gas- and steam turbine shafts

        Precision, efficiency and versatility are just a few features this machine concept has to offer – a concept which increases the quality of a workpiece, at the same time reducing production costs.

        The mpmc is a modular, inclined-bed turning & milling machine with efficient chip removal. The ergonomic design of the machine guarantees comfortable and safe operation. The wide base, the excellent guide ratio and the configuration of the guideways ensure stability and prevent vibration during operation, even under extreme cutting conditions.

      • Finish polishing & grinding machine

      • Polished profitability.

        What are the benefits of using a grinding and polishing machine? Quite simply, it accelerates and completes the second rotor, stator and screw machining phase. This know-how package combines multifunctional polishing units with the weinCAD® module for polishing, spiral grinding and measurement.

        Profiling and optimising.

        One feature for genuine plastics industry success is the equipping of the machine with a grinding and polishing unit. Special devices for the application of the polish paste to screws provide exceptional quality, while the solid material disk profiles the geometry of the workpieces to perfection using its own take-off fixture. Moreover, the disk facilitates the highly cost-efficient grinding of edges and radii.

        All in all, this adds up to saved time, money and nerves.

        Single. Treble.

        Shorter cycle times and competitive advantages is the motto and for the oilfield industry, the special development of the treble grinding unit represents a genuine USP, as it reduces time, energy and financial expenditure. The uniform geometries of the Moineau rotors and stator cores make this special application highly attractive to oilfield companies and therefore particularly successful.

        Contactless measurement is a perfect addition.

        The tailor-made package for the oilfield industry can be supplemented by a measurement device, which provides the tactile and contactless measurement of Moineau components. The results are then integrated into the machine process and linked bi-directionally using weinCAD®. The polishing of bolts and Moineau design parts takes place using a grinding belt and contact or fan disk in a multifunctional polishing unit (buffing).
