Kern Precision’s MircoPro four/five-axis milling machine is powered by the HSK40 spindle and has feed ranges up to 1,181 ipm and 42,000 rpm. All 209 toolholders or a combination of 102 toolholders can be used and an integrated workpiece changer can hold 30 Erowa or 3R pallets. According to the company, these 30 pallets enable unmanned lights-out production for several hours or overnight.  

The Heidenhain TNC640 control aligns directly with the machine. This is supported by the Ultra High Performance(UHP) UniCore Machine Platform that is thermosymmetrically designed. Engineered with dampening behavior and the capability to absorb vibrations, the UHP UniCore platform enables machine stability, the company says. 

According to the company, the UniCore platform optimizes flow through with the elimination of interfaces making it easier to clean and maintain.
