The 500-mm (19.7") axis travels (X, Y, Z) provide the flexibility nec- essary for small to mid-size parts machining. Features include a FANUC 31iMB Control, 400-mm pallets, a rotary automatic pallet changer and a 40-tool-capacity magazine. With dimensions of 180" × 112" × 139", the HMC is said to be useful for shops with limited floor space. | Enshu USA Corp. | South, Level 3, Booth 338592 Horizontal Machining Center Designed for Hard Metals The HMC 800 from Fives Cincinnati suits aerospace, oil and gas, and other hard-metal precision machining applications. It combines high spindle torque with machine stiffness. Its dual ball screws enable feed rates of 45 m/min, with acceleration and deceleration rates of 0.5 G. The bridge and saddle are said to feature enhanced dynamic stiffness for quality finish and extended tool life. Designed for complex five-axis and five-sided applications, the machine combines twin ball-screw- driven axes in XYZ, an infinite con- touring B-axis table, and a compact, U-frame A-axis tilt spindle. High-torque spindle options, including two offering 6,000 rpm, enable processing of hard metals. Spindles offer external flood coolant with pressure ranging to 250 psi and internal through-spindle coolant with pressure ranging to 1,500 psi (HSK100A/KM4X). Tooling options include HSK-100A, KM4X100 and Big Plus 50. | Fives Cincinnati | South, Level 3, Booth 338109
