EMCO Maier’s Hyperturn 65 Powermill offers a spindle clearance of 1,300 mm along with a counter spindle to enable four-axis machining and a B axis with direct drive for five-axis simultaneous milling operations. An additional Y axis for the lower turret further enables machining of complex parts. Turning, drilling, milling and gear-cutting operations are completed in a single setup on the machine, eliminating additional handling and part storage and improving workpiece precision. In addition, production time, fixturing and personnel costs, and floor-space requirements can be reduced. According to the company, the machine is well-suited to serial production of workpieces for the automotive, material-handling and aircraft industries.

The 29-kW milling spindle offers 79 Nm of torque with speeds ranging to 12,000 rpm. The B-axis direct drive provides contour capabilities with five-axis simultaneous machining as well as shorter tool-change times. The 29-kW counter spindle provides 250 Nm of torque, enabling machining a workpiece with two tools simultaneously for four-axis machining. The lower turret with integrated milling drive can also be used for complex milling operations in all 12 positions, combined with the Y axis and ±50-mm travel.

The HSK-T63 tool interface can be used for both turning and drilling/milling work. It can be continuously swiveled within a range of ±120 degrees and clamped at any point. With a useful Y travel of +120/-100 mm, the spindle is capable of gear-cutting operations, as well as turning and milling work for crankpins, five-axis machining, and more. The machine can be equipped with a 20-station pickup tool magazine, or a 40- or 80-station chain magazine. The machine is controlled by a Siemens Sinumerik 840D-sl. EMCO CPS Pilot simulation software enables planning, programming, simulating and optimizing production runs using a 3D model of the machine.
