Toshiba Machine offers its BP-150.R22 planer-type horizontal boring and milling machine, featuring an extended, 140" Y axis. With a diameter of 150 mm, the spindle provides increased accuracy in high-speed, deep-hole boring applications. The machine features a long-nose spindle head, extending the spindle by 200 mm and providing improved access to the workpiece and stable, accurate machining in heavy-duty applications. The spindle also includes a spring-necked turning option to enable composite machining of any shape along any plane, according to the company. Spindle speeds range from 5 to 8,000 rpm, with a through-spindle option for coolant. A built-in rotary table enables milling and boring along multiple sides of a workpiece with little or no repositioning, reducing production time.
