Handtmann High-speed horizontal centres machine aluminium, titanium
The horizontal machining configuration and the large chip conveyor are said to support high chip volumes.
Handtmann’s series of 5-axis HPC HMCs for titanium and aluminium machine workpieces from 850mm to 1,700mm in diameter and have spindles matching materials and machining requirements, the supplier said.
Materials such as steel and titanium can be machined on the compact HBZ Trunnion 80 at up to 430Nm; the bigger machines, HBZ TR 120 and HBZ TR 160, even offer torque of up to a maximum of 1,010Nm. To machine aluminium quickly and economically, Handtmann offers spindles with up to 30,000 rpm at a maximum spindle power of 125 kW. The spindle achieves a high chip removal rate so that the machining time of aluminium workpieces can be significantly reduced.
