Fermat
Boring mill
The Fermat WFC 10 CNC horizontal boring mill available from TOS America is suitable for four axis machining of small to mid-sized workpieces up to 5.5 ton (11,000 lb). The one-piece bed construction provides accuracy and rigidity. It features a boring diameter of 100 mm (4 in.), a boring spindle with travel of 730 mm (29 in.) up to 3000 rpm, and a spindle diameter of 100 mm (3.937 in.) equipped with a CAT 50 spindle taper. 

Fortworth
Vertical/horizontal milling
The CS-G450B vertical and horizontal milling machine is Taiwanese-built by Chung Sing Machinery. It features a three-axis power feed, rapid traverse rates (vertical 59. 8 in/m or 1520 m/min and longitudinal and cross rates of 116.5 in/min or 2950 mm/min), a automatic lubrication system, and a hand wheel on the saddle for table travel. It is equipped with a turret type milling head and a variable speed vertical spindle.

 

GF AgieCharmilles
5 axis milling
The five axis HEM 500U features a 12,000 rpm spindle and 30-tool magazine with a two-second chip-to-chip time for high speed continuous milling operations and increased spindle uptime. 

The trunnion table is 19.7 in. (500 mm) in diameter and accommodates workpiece weights up to 440 lb. (200 kg). It tilts +50 mm/-110 mm in the B axis and rotates 360° in C for 3 + 2 machining and five-side positioning. Axis travels in X, Y and Z measure 19.7 in. (500 mm), 17.7 in. (450 mm) and 15.7 in. (400 mm), respectively, while a distance of 5.9 in. (150 mm) between the machine spindle nose and rotary table surface allows for maneuverability around workpieces. 

 

Haas
5 axis, 40 taper VMC
The UMC-750 40 taper VMC offers five-sided (3+2) and simultaneous five axis machining.

Travels are 30 x 20 x 20 in. (762 x 508 x 508 mm) travels. The base machine is equipped with an 8100 rpm inline direct-drive spindle, powered by a 30 hp vector drive system (12,000-rpm optional), and comes standard with a 40+1 tool side-mount tool changer. The dual-axis trunnion table can position parts to nearly any angle for contouring and complex machining. The trunnion provides +110 and -35°of tilt and 360° of rotation for excellent tool clearance and large part capacity. 

 

Hardinge
Rigid C frame
The Bridgeport GX-250 5AX five axis vertical machining centre is a rigid C-frame machine in a compact footprint, equipped with a five axis rotary table and Fanuc 31i control with 10.4 in. LCD. The machine, ideally suited for the demanding requirements of the die/mould, aerospace, medical and automotive industries, is designed to handle small, complex workpieces that require closely held tolerances and fine surface finishes. Axis travels are: 11.8 in. (300 mm) X, 15.7 in. (400 mm) Y, and 16.9 in. (430 mm) Z.

 

  

Hyundai WIA
30-tool tool changer
F500VM is a new VMC in the Value Master range with X, Y and Z axis travels of X-axis, 43, 22 and 20 in.  (1100, 559 and 508 mm) respectively. Standard features include a 30-tool swing arm tool changer, Thru Spindle Coolant, Big Plus Tooling, and Rigid Tapping, as well as a large Y axis (1100 mm x 550 mm).

The machine can be configured with an 8,000 rpm spindle for taking deep cuts, or with a 12,000 rpm spindle for high speed precision applications. The standard Big Plus spindle system (BBT #40) provides dual contact between the spindle face and the flange face of the tool holder. Thru-spindle coolant is standard, and the machine is equipped with a 30-tool, side mount swing arm tool changer with 1.3 sec tool-to-tool change times.

 

Makino
New machining platform
The N2 and N2-5XA (five axis) horizontal machining centres for medical and small aluminum parts manufacturing feature the new N2 platform that consumes less than 26 sq ft of floor space. The overall footprint is 45.3 in. wide by 83.7 in. long by 84.6 in. high (1,150 mm by 2,125 mm by 2,150 mm). 

The four axis N2 offers a 400 mm high, 400 mm diameter cylindrical work envelope with X, Y and Z axis travels of 300 mm by 300 mm by 230 mm, and a 300 mm diameter direct-drive rotary table. The 5 axis N2-5XA shares the same linear axes and includes twin, trunnion-style direct-drive A and B rotary axes for the production of complex, contoured parts. 

  

Mazak
Improved machining accuracy
The Variaxis i-800 features a Y axis travel of 33.46 in. (850 mm), an X axis travel of 28.74 in. (730 mm) and can accommodate workpieces up to 39.37 in. (1,000 mm) in diameter and 19.69 in. (500 mm) high. A roller gear cam-driven rotary/tilt table with 360° of rotation in the C axis and +30°-120° of tilt in the Ax axis, is supported at both ends. It comes standard with a 10,000 rpm, 40 hp, 50 taper spindle with a compact nose design to increase the machine’s Z axis stroke to 22.05 in. (560 mm). The machine is available with the standard 30 tools up to 120 tools.  Rapid traverse rate of the X, Y and Z axes is 1.654 ipm (42 m/min).

 

MC Machinery
