Exeron HSC MP9 supplements the MP line in the mid-range segment

Editor: Steffen Donath

With the new HSC MP9 milling machine, the mechanical engineering company from the Black Forest is now closing the gap between the two HSC MP7 and HSC MP11 machines.

The development of the new team member was preceded by intensive discussions with users in order to gain a clear understanding of customer requirements and subsequently translate them into concrete developmental progress. Like the entire series, the HSC MP9 is characterised by maximum accuracy, large machining volumes, efficiency, reliability and longevity. “In a nutshell: all-round efficiency”, sums up Ulf Albrecht from the Design Engineering department at Exeron. “As part of our model upgrades, we have introduced numerous innovative improvements to our MP line to ensure maximum precision and have thus managed to produce a highly interesting result for our customers”.

The HSC MP9 sets the benchmark for modern high-speed milling machines in the high-end range – just like its little sister MP7 and big brother MP11. This includes numerous innovative developments, including in the area of temperature control, automation and workspace design. These innovative steps will further increase the precision and high reliability that the Exeron machines with linear drives from Oberndorf are already renowned for on the market, the company states.

The modern machine cladding of the MP line is evidence that Exeron’s management is clearly focused on the future. The design is characterised by functionality, clear structures and dynamic lines. It visualises the high claim to precision and high quality.

The HSC MP9, which is constructed in the gantry design, is only available in a high-performance 5-axis configuration. With these features, it firmly builds on the great success of the HSC 600. This 5-axis version deliberately relies on the counter bearing solution for the 4th and 5th axes. The possibilities of wet and graphite machining round off the wide range of applications. The latest generation of Heidenhain control and axis control technology ensures excellent results in interaction with the maintenance-free linear direct drives. The touchscreen, which is integrated in the HSC MP9 as standard for the first time, ensures even simpler, more direct and intuitive machine operation. In sum, also the HSC MP9 stands for optimum dynamics, maximum precision and perfect workpiece quality in finishing, electrode and part production.

Pioneering cooling and modern control

Meeting the highest standards during productive operation requires a sophisticated cooling system, Exeron states. The pioneering cooling concept of the HSC MP9 encompasses combined gantry and bed cooling, spindle and surface cooling as well as the cooling of all axes, including slides, linear guides and drives. The control also represents the future: the latest generation of the Heidenhain path control TNC 640 features an optimised motion guide, short block processing times and special control strategies. In conjunction with the consistently digital structure and integrated digital drive control including inverter, the highest machining speeds are possible with the greatest possible contour precision. As standard, it is also possible to resolve the control accuracy to 0.01 µm. In summary: the best components for more power, more precision, more durability!
