5-Axis Machining Center Offers High Capacity and Performance



Hardinge Inc. has released its Bridgeport XT 630 5-axis vertical machining center (VMC).

"Bridgeport's new generation full 5-axis vertical machining center is a fully digital, high-quality machine tool designed to achieve maximum capacity and performance in the aerospace, mold and die, medical and automotive industries and many other manufacturing sectors," said a company spokesperson. "This machine has been developed to provide a powerful and precise solution to meet the requirements of the most demanding metalcutting user."

Manufactured from quality sourced grey cast iron, the machine offers a sophisticated yet user-friendly Siemens 840D control with a 19" LCD.

Axis travels:

  • X: 762 mm (30")
  • Y: 630 mm (24.8")
  • Z: 610 mm (24")
  • A: 30° to -120°
  • C: 360°.

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
  • 24 tool swing-arm ATC
  • Through-ball screw chiller
  • Preparation for through spindle coolant (with rotary union)
  • Remote MPG hand wheel
  • Auto central grease lubrication
  • A-axis encoder.

Options include through-spindle coolant (280 PSI), XYZ linear scale, coolant system with chip conveyor, part probe, tool probe, C-axis rotary encoder, dynamic collision monitoring, tool changer options of 40, 48 and 60 and a mist collector.

"The Bridgeport XT 630 5-axis machining center is priced as a productive 5-face (4+1 axes) VMC, although it includes the high degree of sophistication and functionality of the simultaneous 5-axis machining platform that it is," said Brooke Sykes, Director of Sales and Customer Services North America.
