Kitamura’s new Mycenter-HX800G horizontal machining center delivers precision, accuracy and repeatability required to produce close tolerance parts from the toughest of materials, says the company.

Consistent accuracies of ±0.002 mm (±0.000079 in.)/Full Stroke and ±0.001 mm (±0.000039 in.) repeatability are guaranteed, says the company. Net weight is 28,400 kg (62,480 lb).

Use of proven techniques such as induction hardened solid box way construction, hand-scraping of all mating surfaces and four-step gear driven spindles all contribute to superior results and stability when machining larger heav duty parts for the automotive, oil and gas machinery, aerospace and heavy machinery industries.

Solid box ways and high grade Meehanite cast construction provide superior vibration absorption capabilities for improved surface quality, elevating finish capabilities to a higher level, at the same time overall life of cutting tools.

Extended travels of (X) 1,550 mm (61.0 in.), (Y) 1,300 mm (51.2 in.), (Z) 1,400 mm (55.1 in.) showcase Kitamura’s patented twin ballscrew and servo motor technology on all axes, delivering  “world’s fastest” 60 m/min (2,362 ipm) rapid rates on solid box ways. Work envelope of Ø1,525 mm (Ø60.0 in.) x 1,550 mm (61.0 in.) high beats the competition.

Easy accessibility for a machine of its size, it offers an easy to access work envelope with a one piece, easy grip sliding doors, large windows and door openings along with easy spindle access. All combine to reduce and simplify operator work load and help to promote a safe work environment.

The Mycenter-HX800G comes standard with a 54 hp, 12,000 rpm four-step geared, dual contact spindle delivering 586 N•m (432.1 ft/lb) of max. torque for large drill/tap applications as well as those applications that require heavy material removal, combined with high rpm for fine finish capabilities-in a single set-up.

An optional 8,000 rpm high torque spindle is an available option with output max torque of 1226 N•m (904.2 ft/lb). The Dual contact design offers the benefits of greater machining rigidity, improved surface finishes, higher cutting accuracy and extended cutting tool life.

The Mycenter-HX800G comes standard with full 360° 4th axis simultaneous machining capabilities needed to machine complex, multi-sided parts, reducing set-up time. In addition, Kitamura’s two-station automatic pallet changer allows for the loading of parts while machining–improving spindle cutting time while allowing for in-process verification of component quality.
