EASTEC 2013: Large-Part Horizontal Machining

Modular HMC 1250/1600 Series now features a 180,000-position A-axis tilt spindle for five-axis horizontal machining on large parts. The new 6000-rpm, 46-kW tilt spindle joins a 10,000-rpm, 56-kW spindle, a 24,000-rpm spindle, a high-torque 2600 Nm spindle and two live spindles (110 or 130-mm diam) as headstock options. The high-torque 80-kW spindle is especially suited for aerospace titanium cutting, while the live spindles extend W-axis reach by up to 800 mm, enabling deep-cavity milling to high precision with shorter, more rigid tool lengths.
