HORIZONTAL MACHINING CENTERS


conditions. And when you complete that package with dynamic fi xturing like rotary tables on trunnions for fi ve-axis simultaneous profi ling and fi ve-sided ma- chining, you have all the ingredients for mixing and matching machines to your specifi c applications.


New HMC Series for Five-Axis Production There’s a sweet spot in machining automotive parts that applies equally to general engineering applications. To meet the requirements of fi ve-axis machining of complex prismatic parts, Heller Ma- chine Tools (Troy, MI) has introduced two new models in its HF Series fi ve-axis horizontal machining center line. “HF-Series machines are designed for machin- ing automotive parts including axle parts, steering column housings, and angular machining for holes,” said Markus Schlipphak, Heller vice president-engineering. The two models, the HF 5500 and HF 3500, are aimed at the popular work envelope sizes of 900 × 950 × 900 mm


Three linear axes in X, Y and Z and two rotary axes in A and B integrated into a rotary table on a trunnion enable Heller’s HF machines to do fi ve-sided machining and simultaneous fi ve-axis machining.


(HF5500) and 710 × 750 × 710 mm (HF3500), respectively. Workpieces range from lighter and smaller to heavier, up to 800-kg table load. The fi fth axis of the two machines is pro- vided by the workpiece on a swiveling trunnion with a rotary table or a pallet changer for higher volume production. Users can choose from a range of four spindle packages based on the material they are processing. Spindle speeds up to 18,000 SQN BOE UPSRVF VQ UP


/tN BSF BWBJMBCMF “With three linear axes in X, Y and Z and two rotary axes


in A and B integrated into a rotary table on a trunnion, the HF machines are designed for fi ve-sided machining and simulta- neous fi ve-axis machining. The HF machines may alternatively be equipped with a lift-and-rotate pallet changer for series fi ve- sided production. Standardized pallet automation solutions may be supplied by Fastems or Schuler,” said Schlipphak. Unlike conventional fi ve-axis machining centers, Heller’s HF Series is not only based on single-part clamping but also provides the possibility of multiple clamping or the clamping of very large components, such as transmission cases using “window-type” fi xtures.

Boring Mill Replacement with HMC Bona Fides According to Joe Kraemer, manager of national accounts, the new HCN 16000Q from Mazak Corp. (Florence, KY) is a true boring mill replacement with all the symmetrical design elements and fast and accurate performance characteristics of a horizontal machining center. “The HCN 16000Q features a 130-mm diameter quill with 550-mm of W-axis travel for ma- chining deep inside workpieces with shorter tools. For stability, reliability, and accuracy, the HCN 16000Q’s double-column
