Hermle Compact 5-axis centre has big machine features
The unit accepts cubic parts weighing up to 100kg.
Hermle said it has responded to customer demand for smaller installation area requirements with its C 12 5-axis machining centre. The unit is said to round out the smaller side of the company range but equals the larger models in every way.
The centre is for machining cubic parts up to 100kg. The workpiece cube is approximately Ø 320mm with a height of 265mm.
The traverse paths of 350 x 440 x 330mm provide an ideal basis for simultaneous 5-sided/5-axis machining – with linear traverse and acceleration speeds of 30m/minute at 4 m/s2 and in the dynamics version 50m/minute at 8 m/s2, Hermle said.
The NC-swiveling rotary table swivels and turns in the working area with a torque drive in the C axis and an adapted drive in the A axis out of the working area on the right side, the company said. A dynamic version can also be selected for the standard values.
