Bridge-Type Milling Machines for Heavy Milling

Waldrich Coburg’s Taurus 25 and 30 bridge-type milling machines provide heavy milling capabilities for applications ranging from five-sided frames to five-axis contouring of complex shapes.

Waldrich Coburg’s Taurus 25 and 30 bridge-type milling machines provide heavy milling capabilities for applications ranging from five-sided frames to five-axis contouring of complex shapes. The machines are suited for larger die/mold and aerospace applications.

The company says stiff hydrostatic guideways and a heavy cast iron structure combine with high-power, high-torque spindle units to enable rough and finish machining of tough materials, such as titanium and Inconel, as well as cast iron and cast steel die set materials. The machines are being used for diesel engine blocks and precision machine tool frames, says the company. Feed rates of 30 m/min. (1,181 ipm) and an optional 20,000-rpm spindle unit provide the flexibility to cut lighter materials.

The Taurus 25 features a 2 × 4 m (78.7" × 157.5") table with a 2 m (78.7") clearance height and a 1.5 m (59") of ram stroke. The Taurus 30 features a 2.5 × 5 m (98" × 196.8") table with a 3 m (118.1") clearance height and 1.5 m (59") ram stroke. The Taurus series is available with a Siemens 840D sl, Heidenhain TNC 640 or FANUC 30i control. Basic machines include automatic tool changers with 100 tool pockets and four locations for automatic spindle unit changes.
