5-Axis Machining Options



Heller Machine Tools will exhibit several options for productive 5-axis machining at IMTS 2016. "Heller's 5-axis milling is centered on productivity and process dependability with a goal of establishing new standards in terms of universality, flexibility and absolute precision," said a company spokesperson. "With its C head, available in several machine models, a fifth axis provided by the tool forms the basis for achieving maximum process dependability.

"HELLER demonstrates that system availability above 90% is feasible without restrictions in terms of chip removal rate as there are no restrictions with Heller's Power Cutting Universal swivel head unit. This machining unit is capable of providing 44 kW power and 242 Nm torque."

The power provided is available at any spatial angle. As a result, the Heller machining centers are capable of heavy-duty cutting, combined milling and drilling operations or 5-sided machining in a single set-up. Even in 5-axis simultaneous milling the machine fulfills requirements in terms of dimensional and contouring accuracy.

"Temperature curves of a 5-axis machine inevitably vary throughout a day of production. However, due to the precise construction and thermal stability of the Heller machine, they have no influence whatsoever on its precision," said the spokesperson. Encoded, direct measuring systems, high-resolution rotary encoders and YRT bearings with integrated measuring system provide precision down to the µ range. HELLER also combines this level of precision with the required dynamics with 5-axis kinematics provided by the tool in X, Y, C and/or A axis and two axes provided by the workpiece in Z and B.
