Machine enabling highly productive turning now available in table design
With batch sizes decreasing, achieving cost reductions and increased productivity whilst shortening delivery times requires increasingly leaner manufacturing processes. For some time now, mill/turning centres have been providing a solution to achieve these goals. HELLER has responded to these new requirements with a machine evolved from the company's modular system. Model CT 6000 is the first size-6000 machine from the C series mill/turning centre range available in table design.
For HELLER, this machine represents a natural and consistent product evolution from its modular system. Model CT 6000 is the first size-6000 machine from the mill/turning centre range available in table design.
The turning function is a valuable addition to the proven milling capacity of the classic machining centres. For this purpose, the machine is equipped with a fifth axis provided by the tool combined with a direct driven rotary table.
Vertical and horizontal turning operations of outer and inner contours can be accomplished without any problem with the C axis and optional A and B axis. This highly productive machine provides economically efficient cutting data with workpiece rotations of up to 500rpm for pre-machining and finishing true to the final contour.
For model CT 6000 HELLER has compiled an almost unique performance package in this range. 5-axis machining centre model CT 6000, which HELLER will be presenting to the public for the first time at CIMT 2015 in Beijing, features an HSK100 spindle taper and a Power Cutting Universal spindle with 60kW drive power, a maximum speed of up to 8,000rpm and 1,146Nm torque.
Combined processes have been on HELLER's agenda for quite some time now. That is why technical prerequisites such as the high-speed rotary table, spindle growth compensation and spindle locking ensuring torsional stiffness and high repeatability already existed.
The expansion of the C series with model CT 6000 is a systematic further development tailored to the needs of the power generating industry, plant engineering and construction as well as power train engineering.
