Unique upside-down machining,has excellent chip fall and reduces the heat load in the componentClick image to enlargeGrob Systems’ new Access Series 5 axis machining centres deliver high machining quality and are rated for optimized reliability, high productivity and modular expandability with automation solutions.

Basic models G350a and G550a, are backed by Grob's 90 years of experience with machine tools and are built in the U.S. 

The G350a and G550a offer almost unlimited application possibilities in milling applications and remain flexibly adaptable to suit every requirement. They meet the broadest range of part requirements with the ability to machine the largest workpiece with the longest tool at the same time.

Both models also include a rigid horizontal spindle axis optimally positioned close to the operating point with guaranteed maximum accuracy and precision. This combination, with its unique upside-down machining, has excellent chip fall and reduces the heat load in the component. The models offer the longest z-axis stroke and largest swivel range on the market for rotary axis.

The linear guidance system of the reference axis can be optionally equipped with a temperature-controlled cooling function, and a wide-opening work area door ensures safe access and ergonomic working, with maximum machine safety. Plus, large safety glass provides a perfect view of the machining process.  The Access Series is compatible with Seimens and Heidenhain control systems.

Typical applications for the Access Series include 3+2-axis machining and volume cutting (structural components) in the aerospace, automotive, pump and valve, mechanical engineering, and job shop industries.

Multi-Tasking: Is it Right for Your Shop?

For manufacturers looking to achieve that competitive edge, you can do no better than a multi-tasking machine. They eliminate the need for separate milling and turning machines, multiple set-ups and, most importantly, they improve productivity.

The Rules of X-Ray Micro CT (and When to Break Them)

Offer the term “metrology equipment” to a group of industrial or manufacturing engineers in a word-association test and it's highly likely CMM (coordinate measuring machine) would be the response.
