Ingersoll Machine Tools says that its two-axis spindle unit eliminates the need for multiple spindle units and setups to produce complex titanium structures. The spindle unit provides speeds of 2,850 rpm, 104 kW (140 hp) of power and 3,464 Nm (2,555 foot-pounds) of torque to the tool tip (S1 continuous), enabling high metal removal rates. The spindle also offers the ability to travel ±110 degrees on the A axis and ±200 degrees on the C axis, with 12,000 Nm of continuous (S1) contouring torque. This feature enables complete five-sided roughing and finishing as an alternative to straight- and right-angle units. The two-axis unit accommodates single- or multi-spindle machines in vertical or horizontal configurations.
