MAG's modular HMC 1250/1600 series now includes a new 180,000-position A-axis tilt-spindle for five-axis horizontal machining on large aerospace and energy parts. The HMS1250/1600 series includes six spindle options to suit special-purpose or general machining requirements.
The new 6,000 rpm/46 kW tilt-spindle joins an all-around 10,000 rpm/56 kW spindle, high-speed 24,000 rpm spindle, high-torque 2,600 Nm/80 kW spindle and two live spindles.
The high-torque spindle is suited for aerospace titanium cutting, while the live spindles extend W-axis reach by up to 800 mm, enabling deep cavity milling to high precision with shorter, more rigid tool lengths, according to MAG. Standard on the live spindle, MAG's Z-axis thermal compensation software offsets spindle growth to maintain tight tolerances.
The HMC 1250 series offers maximum 3,000 mm work-zone swing, 2,050 mm work-height capacity and 7,000 kg pallet load capacity. Major machine components – including the X-bed, Z-bed and column – are cast ductile iron, with 1250 mm x 1600 mm pallets, headstock and rotary table housings of gray cast iron. Modular design provides a range of machine travels, 60- to 120-tool magazines and two control choices.
