EMO 2019: Burkhardt+Weber’s MCX 900 horizontal machining center is designed for accuracy, accommodating part sizes fitting within a 1,500 mm (59") swing and as tall as 1,750 mm (69").
Burkhardt+Weber’s MCX 900 horizontal machining center is designed for accuracy, accommodating part sizes fitting within a 1,500 mm (59") swing and as tall as 1,750 mm (69"). This machine is equipped with the latest features and options available for large BW machining centers in four- or five-axis configurations, the company says.
The machine’s tool magazine exceeds the company’s standard tool weight limit of 75 kg (165 lb) and length limit of 1,200 mm (47"), enabling it to apply tools for applications that would otherwise require a boring mill.
Hand-scraping the mating surfaces of a CNC machine tool’s motion system offers myriad advantages.
Years of trial and error combined with the appropriate machining technology allow this company to produce custom parts made of alumina, zirconia, boron nitride and other advanced ceramic materials. One example of key machining technology is a five-axis machining center used exclusively to produce the complex, tightly toleranced geometry that fire-hardened workpieces require.
You know how to machine metals, but what about plastic machining? More specifically, glass-fiber-reinforced plastic? This machine shop has it figured out.
