High Performance 5-Axis Milling

The innovative Mikron HPM series milling machines with pallet changers are ideal for both micro and macro applications involving processes from simple drilling to complex five-sided and simultaneous five-axis machining.

These innovative milling machines with pallet changers are ideal for both micro and macro applications involving processes from simple drilling to complex five-sided and simultaneous five-axis machining.

GF AgieCharmilles (Lincolnshire, IL) offers its latest innovations in high-performance and high speed milling in the Mikron HPM 450U with a pallet changer, the Mikron HPM 1350U with a Siemens CNC, the Mikron HSM 400U LP with a pallet changer, and the UPTIME+ service and support program that further leverages the competitive advantages of applications expertise, comprehensive training, technical assistance, preventive maintenance, world-class warranty coverage, and parts and consumables.

Ideal for both micro and macro machining applications, the HPM 450U is a high performance milling solution that boasts a new torque rotary/tilt table for unencumbered, interference-free five-axis machining and offers highly efficient spindle options. It is also a powerful solution for universal, automated production as it perfectly combines dynamics and stability and easily adapts to suit a variety of customer requirements, offering impressive machining from simple drilling to complex five-sided and simultaneous five-axis machining processes.

The HPM 1350U, available with a Siemens or Heidenhain CNC, is a high-performance milling solution that offers simultaneous five-axis machining, while also providing dynamic performance and high precision. By featuring linear motor technology for the rotary axis, the HPM 1350U can produce large axis movements with unrestricted access, making it well suited for heavy cutting and precise machining within the energy industry.

Built with a versatile milling tilt head and a 43.42 in diameter rotary table, the HPM 1350U handles loads up to 3,306.9 lb with a rotational speed up to 40 rpm. Perfect for processing aerospace parts, the HSM 400U LP provides five-axis simultaneous high-speed machining and delivers powerful performance and accuracy on all axes. The machine achieves speeds up to 250 rpm on the rotational axis and up to 150 rpm on the swivel axis, with a B-axis swivel range of 220 deg.

The HSM 400U LP uses a liquid cooled, linear direct drive motor technology to allow for short setting times and high dynamic rigidity of the attitude control. With powerful vector spindles available at 30,000 rpm, 42,000 rpm or 54,000 rpm, the HSM 400U LP provides excellent surface finish and part detail, while significantly reducing machining time for semifinishing and finishing operations. The compact pallet changer automation option and up to 220 tools offer a production power house solution. www.gfac.com/us
