Four-, Five-Axis HMCs Fit Multiple Applications, Materials
Burkhardt+Weber’s MCC series of HMCs, with axis travels measuring 1,100 × 900 × 1,100 mm, is suited for standalone machining needs and linked production lines.
Burkhardt+Weber’s MCC series of HMCs, with axis travels measuring 1,100 × 900 × 1,100 mm, is suited for standalone machining needs and linked production lines. It fits most machining applications and materials, and addresses four- and five-axis needs.
The five-axis MCC features a rigid, dynamic A-axis concept with a 100-percent duty rated 30-kW motor spindle. It has a large swivel range for maximum flexibility, offering 10,000 rpm and a low-end torque of 300 Nm. An easy-access twin pallet makes it ideal for loading via overhead crane or gantry for payloads as heavy as 1,500 kg. It integrates all benefits of the company’s larger machines, such as accuracy, high stiffness and reliability.
The geared-spindle four-axis machine, with 41 kW and 1,300 Nm of power, addresses high-torque machining needs. Central data systems can use the machines’ networked status information to predictively organize production and maintenance to reduce downtime and ultimately increase machine availability. The MCC series is ready for digital networking in self-organizing production processes and can be fully integrated into the customer’s manufacturing execution system infrastructure.
An introduction to 3+2 machining: how it works and what it can do for your machine shop.
Speed changes the rules. To maximize metal removal rate with a high speed spindle, follow some fundamental tooling considerations and mill at just the right rpm.
Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
