The FH630SX-i horizontal machining center from JTEKT Toyoda Americas is said to achieve complex part machining and multi-surface processing in one setup by combining high torque and simultaneous five-axis machining. 

“From the highly rigid platform to the flexible swivel spindle, our newest 5-Axis addition combines the stability and versatility that shop owners look for and need with complex cutting production”, says Graham Roeder, national product manager. “Combining the FH630SX-i with four-axis machines on a shared RGV system allows shops to increase performance, enhancing autonomous production.”

For increased flexibility, the machine is capable of traveling 12" past the pallet centerline in the vertical orientation. For spindle speed flexibility, the machine features an interchangeable spindle cartridge supporting the special-purpose 15,000-rpm, 74-hp high-speed spindle. An 8,000-rpm, 107-hp high-torque spindle is available as an option. Both spindles are designed with Toyoda’s replaceable taper for easier repairs and maintenance. The tilting spindle also comes with a C-axis drive train and an enlarged C-axis swivel range of 230 degrees for better workpiece access. Furthermore, the base, which supports the spindle, minimizes displacement from external forces that affect processing accuracy, enduring huge cutting forces in addition to the inertial force of feeding acceleration/deceleration, according to Toyoda.
