The Hyperturn 45 turning center is designed for applications on barstock ranging to 45-mm in diameter. The machine is equipped with main and counterspindles, two tool systems, a stable Y axis, water-cooled spindle motors, dynamic digital drives, a thermo-symmetrical machine construction and compact dimensions, the company says.
The machine contains two spindles, two turret tool systems with a total ranging to 24 driven tools and a VDI25 rapid change system, as well as several automation options. The turning center includes a Y axis with a 70-mm travel in the upper slide system and a Z2 axis in the lower slide system. A 45-mm (standard 32-mm) through-hole counterspindle is available for longer parts.
The main and counterspindles are equipped with integrated water-cooled spindle motors with drive power of 15 kW, a maximum speed of 7,000 rpm and a torque of 100 Nm.
According to the company, the spindle’s nose is also larger: With A2-5, the counterspindle can be used to remove barstock parts with diameters ranging to 45 mm. The maximum turning diameter is 300 mm.
The machine is suited for applications in general mechanical engineering, job shops and the automotive supply industry, as well as precision machining such as dental technology.
