Turning, Milling, Grinding and Workholding to be Featured

Hardinge Inc. will exhibit turning centers, milling machines, grinding machines and workholding at its IMTS 2016 booth.

Hardinge Turning

The all-new Hardinge TALENT 51 MSY CNC turning center will make its debut at IMTS. This machine features the Hardinge quick-change collet-ready spindle, designed for better part accuracy and surface finish capabilities. The machine also comes standard with live tooling, sub-spindle and Y-axis to meet demanding machining challenges and allow for part-complete operations. The TALENT 51 MSY features a 5,000 RPM 25 HP main spindle with 2" bar capacity. It offers a turning diameter of 12.2" and a maximum turning length of 24.9". The 12-station turret uses 3/4" square shank and 1-1/4" round shank tooling and 6,000 RPM maximum live tooling capability is standard. The turret also provides 1/2 station index for up to 24 tools. The machine is offered with a FANUC 0i-TF control including many standard control features.

The Hardinge CONQUEST H51 will be displayed with a newly released hydraulically operated steady rest. This new attachment is designed to support long workpieces without distorting or deflecting the part. The machine features a 20 HP, 5,000 RPM A2-6" main spindle with a 2" bar capacity. It offers maximum turning diameter of 12.3" and a maximum turning length of 25.5". The 12-station turret offers 1/2 station index for up to 24 tools. The machine comes with many standard features such as through-tool coolant, bar feed and chip conveyor interfaces, three position stack light, PCMCIA memory card, USB capability, rigid tapping and many others including state-of-the-art machine crash protection.

Bridgeport Milling

On display for the first time will be the new Bridgeport XT 630 5-axis vertical machining center (VMC). This new-generation machining center is engineered to be a fully-digital, high-quality machine tool, designed to achieve maximum capacity and performance in the aerospace, mold & die, medical and automotive industries and many other manufacturing sectors. "Manufactured from quality sourced grey cast iron to the highest standards, the Bridgeport XT 630 5-axis is packed with features," said a company spokesperson. "The machine is offered with a highly sophisticated yet user-friendly Siemens 840D- SL control with a 19" LCD." Axis travels are X=762 mm (30") Y=630 mm (24.8") and Z=600 mm (24"). Standard machine equipment includes BIG Plus CT40 spindle, 15,000 RPM direct-coupled spindle with oil chiller, coolant chip flush system, three color stack light, 40-tool swing-arm ATC, pre-wiring for Renishaw part probe, through-ballscrew chiller, preparation for through spindle coolant (with a rotary union) and A- and C-axis encoder.

"The Bridgeport CONQUEST V480 APC VMC with integrated automatic pallet changer is a compact yet rugged machine, developed for applications that require speed, accuracy as well as high volume production," said the spokesperson. The Bridgeport CONQUEST V480 APC features rapid traverse rates of 1,417 inches per minute X, Y and Z and acceleration rates of X=6 m/sec2, Y=4.6 m/sec2, Z=3.75 m/sec2. The user-friendly Mitsubishi M70V control with NAVI MILL programming is standard. The Bridgeport CONQUEST V480 APC is suited for both job shops and OEMs and designed with flexibility and throughput in mind.

The Bridgeport CONQUEST V1000 provides rapid traverse of 1,692 inches per minute on X- and Y-axes and 1,417 inches per minute on the Z-axis and a user-friendly Mitsubishi M70V control with NAVI MILL programming and 10.4" LCD. The machine features a direct-drive 20 HP, 10,000 RPM (12,000 and 15,000 RPM option) spindle motor with 110 ft-lbs. of torque, and a 30-tool swing-arm automatic tool changer. The machine is designed for rigidity. Large, robust 45 mm ball screws provided on all axes and 35 mm linear guides are standard on the X-axis with 45 size guides on the Y- and Z-axes.

Hardinge Grinding Group

The Kellenberger VARIA Universal Cylindrical Grinding Machine has been recently updated with a larger work space, longer machine table, and the distance between centers of 1,600 mm and is now capable of even more grinding possibilities. The machine combines functional design with high-precision technology. Hydrostatic guides guarantee maximum dimensional accuracy in grinding tasks with interpolating axes and high positioning speeds and accuracies are assured by direct drives for the rotary axes.

The Usach 100-T4 CNC grinding machine is suited for grinding both I.D.s and O.D.s. The machine has four high-frequency motors with speeds ranging from 6,000 to 90,000 RPM. The machine has a swing diameter of up to 17.71" and is offered with the latest Siemens 840D control and Usach Open Architecture software system.

Hardinge Workholding

The Hardinge Workholding Group will feature some productivity displays at IMTS:

  • Quick Change FlexC Collet Systems

Hardinge Quick Change FlexC Collet Systems are designed for fast changeover, high accuracy and a wide gripping range for stock variation. A new line of accessories for the FlexC system including I.D. gripping solutions, additional O.D. gripping solutions, special part ejectors and more can be seen. FlexC is available in 42 mm, 65 mm, and 80 mm sizes and can be installed on all machine brands.

  • Sure-Grip Expanding Collet Systems

"I.D. gripping is made easy with the patented Hardinge Sure-Grip Expanding Collet System. The extremely accurate Hardinge Sure-Grip Expanding Collet provides for part length control built into its design and provides fast changeover times," said the spokesperson. Also, Hardinge provides custom I.D. gripping solutions to meet difficult I.D. workholding requirements.

  • Swiss-Style Collets and Guide Bushings

Hardinge manufactures collets and guide bushings for all brands of Swiss-style machines. On display at IMTS will be the full range of Hardinge Swiss workholding including overgrip collets, Meehanite collets, carbide lined collets, special slot collets and guide bushings, bar loader collets and more. Hardinge collets are precision ground to meet the TIR and surface finish specifications required in the Swiss industry.
