The FH-SX series of horizontal machining centers from Toyoda Machinery features a newly designed column and high-torque spindle to speed through steel without compromising rigidity. Based on the success of this line and market demand, Toyoda introduces its largest HMC, the FH1250SX. The FH1250SX is designed to provide the cutting power of a boxway machine with more than 50 percent higher rapid traverse rates (1655 IPM) than the previous generation FA series machine. The machine’s 60 horsepower, 8,000 rpm high-torque spindle provides 737 ft/lbs of torque for demanding material removal applications. The column of the FH1250SX is designed to support the spindles cutting power by utilizing dual ball screws that surround the spindle housing, thus maintaining rigidity and accuracy while increasing tool life and performance. The cavernous work envelope of the FH1250SX allows workpiece sizes of 94.5”x70.9” as well as a table load capacity of 10,000 pounds.

Sharing The Big Picture
The theme of visibility in manufacturing finds expression in numerous ways at this shop. One of the most conspicuous is the use of plasma displays in strategic areas to summarize the company’s performance as reported by its shop control/data-collection system.
Managing Information Maximizes Efficiency
Using an intuitive, homegrown MRP system, this shop is able to effectively manage massive amounts of information while making necessary documents accessible anywhere they’re needed on the shop floor.
Cells To The Max
Brad Hart, president of Roberts Tool Company, in Chatsworth, California, believes that automated cells are the key to survival for companies likes his that machine complex, high-precision parts for aerospace and defense. Cellular manufacturing makes it possible to reduce lead times dramatically and minimize labor input while increasing throughput and improving quality, he says. In his shop, a cell consisting of two Toyoda HMCs and a dozen pallet stations epitomizes the lean manufacturing concepts that Mr. Hart finds so compelling. However, he says that shop owners have to get out of the business of making parts and into the business of building processes--processes such as those embodied in a lean manufacturing cell.
