Single Set-up Machining of Large Parts with Turn-Mill Center



INDEX G420 - New dimensions of turning and milling

Optionally, a 2-axis handling unit can be integrated for loading and unloading as well as removal of remnants up to a part weight of 25 kg, so that the INDEX G420 has everything for low-manned operations.

Due to the large working area and the distance between the main and counter spindles, simultaneous machining is possible with the motorized milling spindle and the tool turrets at the main and counter spindles with no risk of collision.

INDEX's G420 turn-mill center features identical 3,500 RPM twin spindles with 315 mm (400 mm optional) chucks and a robust 5-axis milling spindle that provides up to 12,000 RPM with an HSK-T63 interface or 18,000 RPM with a Capto C6 interface. "The machine's high inherent stability and dynamic response make it a suitable choice for working with difficult-to-machine materials, providing significant value to aerospace manufacturers looking to complete large, complex parts in a single set-up," said a company spokesperson.

The G420's main and counter spindles each accommodate bar stock of up to O102 mm and can chuck parts up to O315 mm (O400 mm optional). The large work area provides space for parts up to a maximum length of 1,600 mm and incorporates an ergonomic design to optimize operator accessibility. Additionally, an optional workpiece handling system can be incorporated for loading, unloading and transferring parts of up to 20 kg and O120 mm.

A powerful milling spindle offers 26 kW, 150 Nm and 12,000 RPM with an HSK-t63 interface or 27.5 kW, 100 Nm and 18,000 for the Capto C6 option. Optimized Y/B quill kinematics allow for highly productive simultaneous 5-axis milling operations to tackle complex geometries.

Designed as a modular system, the G420 can accommodate up to three tool carriers in its workspace, each equipped with a Y-axis. Turret steady rests are available to ensure maximum stability when machining long or shaft-shaped parts.

"Ergonomics and flexibility were major considerations when designing the G420," said the spokesperson. All relevant components are easily accessible to operating and maintenance personnel. A chip conveyor can be mounted to either side of the machine, allowing customers to make optimum use of available floor space. Furthermore, automation solutions, including conveyor belts and robot handling units, can easily be integrated to provide additional enhancements to productivity.
