FEMCO’s BMC-110R2 horizontal boring mill features stress-relieved Meehanite castings for all major components and uses induction-hardened boxways on all three axes. The headstock, column, base and cross-slides are lined with Turcite to promote wear and slip-stick characteristics. Designed for large workpieces, the machine’s 56.69" × 62.99" worktable offers a load capacity of 13,889 lbs.
The BMC-110R2 features a 35-hp, 50-taper spindle motor and a two-speed gearhead to enable maximum metal removal during heavy machining operations. The 4.33"-diameter spindle provides a stroke of 19.69". X-, Y- and Z-axis travels measure 78.74" × 70.87" × 66.93", respectively, and precision glass scales on all three axes help to ensure accuracy and repeatability.
The machining center also features a 60-station automatic toolchanger or an optional 90-station tool magazine. It is equipped with a FANUC 32i MB CNC control and FANUC servo-drive system. An external chain-type chip conveyor system quickly and efficiently removes chips. Options include a through-spindle coolant system and a full B-axis rotary table with contouring capabilities.
