Machining centres with gear spindles

Milling machines with gear spindles can generate enormous advances in productivity when used to machine hard-to-cut materials and high-volume components for which high cutting rates are required and/or where large-diameter tools are used.

HWACHEON develops and produces its own drives for heavy duty cutting. Particular use of these is made in the VESTA B series and the horizontal machining centre (H series). The gears and spindle bearings are actively cooled with oil and maintained at a constant temperature.

Using the high-torque spindles with large measuring heads, taps, and drills, high cutting rates can be achieved.

Vertical machining centres with box guideways for heavy duty cutting

Cutting particularly tough and hard materials is the preferred area of application of the machines in the VESTA B series, which are equipped with box guideways and gear spindles. Thanks to their broad box guideways and solid cast iron bodies, their stability and damping characteristics are extremely well developed.

Horizontal machining centres with extremely high performance and stability

By means of twin drives on the X and Y axes, very wide box guideways and 30-tonne machine beds, the series constituted by the H6 and H8 (630 mm and 800 mm pallets) ensures high precision and high cutting rates. Gear spindles of 8,000 rpm and 1,653 Nm and motor spindles of 12,000 rpm and 420 Nm are available.
