Hyundai Wia’s KF5600 vertical machining center, designed through years of expert engineering and using state-of-the-art control technology, maximizes production rates while maintaining rigidity and accuracy. Standard on this machine is the 8,000/12,000-rpm high-speed direct-coupled spindle, which is directly driven by the motor to simplify the drive system structure and maintenance procedures as well as to reduce noise, vibration and heat generation compared to a belt-driven machine.

A quick tool-change time of 3.2 seconds (the shortest in its class) reduces idle time and improves productivity, making the KF5600 the ideal machine for all your high-volume, high-precision machining applications.

Key features include:

  • Dual-contact spindle (BBT40) – Increased tool rigidity

  • All-in-One mold package – Standard KF5600 feature

  • Linear roller guideways – Reduced non-cutting time and increased rigidity

  • 3.2-second tool-change time

  • Rapid traverse rate (X/Y/Z): 40/40/36 m/min. (1,575/1,575/1,417 ipm)

All-in-One Precision Mold Package

To enhance mold machining, the Hyundai Wia All-in-One Mold Package (20K spindle) is provided as a standard feature on this machine. With cutting air blow, auto power-off, heat distortion compensation and an automatic tool measuring device, the KF5600 ensures accurate and consistent surface finishing and contouring.

  • For Many Machining Facilities, the Mindset Now Must Be “Radical Automation”

    What if there will never, ever be enough talent in your local labor pool to meet the still-growing demand for skilled manufacturing employees? The real challenge might lie in our expectations about how much skilled labor we need. Let IMTS 2018 be the beginning of facing this challenge.

  • New Machines Are Only Part of the Story

    Haas Automation has sixteen machines on display in its booth (S-8119), but those tell only part of the story for a machine tool builder that markets its products globally. “Building the brand” is a consistent effort that goes well beyond introducing new models at every major manufacturing show.
