Available from Yama Seiki, the AWEA BL-series horizontal boring mill is available with two different boring spindle models: the BL-S series and the BL-FM. Both models are equipped with a 40-tool automatic toolchanger located outside the working area to keep coolant and chips off the magazine and toolchange arm. X-axis travel ranges from 78.4" to 157.4", depending on the model; Y-axis travel measures 70.9" (94.5" optional); and W-axis travel measures 23.6". The table can accommodate a maximum load of 22,000 lbs.
The BL-S series machine features a 120-mm (4.7") diameter quill-type boring spindle with 600 mm of travel designed to increase rigidity and stability during heavy cuts. The machine’s spindle motor features continuous/30-min. ratings of 22/26 kW (30/35 hp). The stepless, variable-speed, gear-driven spindle has a two-step gearbox with speeds ranging to 2,400 rpm.
The BL-FM series features continuous/30-min. ratings of 22/25 kW (30/35 hp) and a stepless, variable-speed spindle with speeds ranging to 6,000 rpm in a 480 × 480 mm square section. The spindle temperature is controlled by an oil spindle chiller.
