High rigid casting frame

Rigid casting frame
The most advanced FEM technology has been utilized to design an extremely rigid casting frame. The machine is composed by 3 separate casting parts: machine bed, X axis column and spindle headstock.

Outstanding Accuracy
High-end standard equipment guarantee both outstanding accuracy and high performances of the machine. High precision linear scales on 3 linear axis X Y & Z. High precision direct rotary encoders for the B & C axis.

Axes technology

Ball screws
High precision Φ50mm ballscrews on 3 axis are directly coupled to powerful AC servo motors to provide the utmost results in high speed cutting with best finishing quality.

Roller Guideways
Highly rigid – heavy duty roller type linear guideways, provide low starting inertia, low friction, high acceleration rates and optimize machine response in high speed cutting.

Ladder bed
The one piece casting ladder bed has been designed to increase column resistance and rigidity.

B Axis Innovative Swiveling Head
The latest technology torque motor manages the B axis continuous swivel milling head and guarantees maximum dynamic and linearity: the absence of traditional mechanical transmission allows much higher quality of surface finishing. The reading system with a direct angular encoder, grants precision and reliability. Suitable clamping torque is grant by an hydraulic brake system.

The fully automatic 0.001 degrees indexing from vertical to horizontal positions gives the operator all the flexibility for multi-sided machining without re-setting the workpiece. Moreover, 5 axis machining is performed by the rotary table in combination with the swiveling head

C Axis durable rotary Table
The table incorporates a standard 1000 x 800mm clamping plate and is driven by AC Servomotor. It can be indexed 0.001° by an high precision worm gear and high precision direct rotary encoder. Clamping torque over 4.000 Nm is grant by an hydraulic brake system.

Wide Throat Distance
The very wide distance, 700mm between spindle center and X axis slideway cover, gives the operator a great convenience for different workpiece setup.

Automatic Tool Changer
40 positions chain type with a double swing arm ATC is a standard.
Optional is a 52 position version.

UHE 1600

Latest innovation in combination of both bridge type machine and travelling column type machine for heavy duty 5 axis simultaneus machining.

Main characteristics:

  • 1620 x 1260 x 1050 mm travels on X/Y/Z
  • Ø 1320 mm torque motor rotary table, with 4000 kg work load
  • 0.001° swiveling head with torque motor
  • Standard 8000 Rpm HSK-A100 /BT#50- 36/45 kW 340/418 Nm with Ø 100mm Ceramic bearings motor spindle (Optional 15.000 Rpm HSK-A-100 20/26kW 290/317 Nm)
  • Exclusive 4 linear guideways system on X axis grants maximum rigidity and allows heavy duty cutting operations
