The basis of this machine is a bed made of granite millions of years old – material that has outstanding thermal and vibration dampening characteristics. These are prerequisites for high precision HSC milling of steel (up to 64 HRC), aluminium, copper, graphite, plastic etc. These characteristics together with the horizontal milling spindle for optimal chip removal make a truly unique combination. Milling, drilling and threading up to max. 26 kW. Gearless drives on the rotating and swiveling axis up to 100 min-1. The 5-axis simultaneous machining allows much shorter production time of the work pieces. The reason for this is the reduction of the number of converting processes, the reduction of manual rework, paired with a high machine availability. The machine MC 500 is equipped with sliding doors, which allow loading and unloading by crane or other devices from two sides.
Control and drive technology from the same source!
The increasing demands of automation and technology require a close cooperation between machine building and open control technology. The MC 500 has great fl exibility and possibilities for customer solutions, for example automatic insertion and removal of the work piece and coupling machines together for sequential operations.
