Complex Milling Capability on Hybrid Mill/Turn Center

At IMTS Absolute Machine Tools demonstrated the QuickTECH T8 HYBRID mill/turn processing center.

The QuickTECH T8 HYBRID features nine total axes, two turning spindles, two live milling spindles and a minimum capacity of 38 tools for complete part machining, including complex milling functions. The main spindle features a 4,000 RPM, 15 HP high-torque integral spindle motor with either a three-jaw chuck or collet chuck as standard. The sub-spindle has a 4,000 RPM 7.5 HP high-torque integral spindle motor for backworking. Its bar capacity is 65 mm (2.55") with the 203 mm (8") three-jaw chuck or 60 mm (2.36") with the DIN-185E-60B collet chuck. Sub-spindle bar capacity is 32 mm (1.259") with its standard DIN-173E-42B collet chuck. Maximum turning length is 350 mm (13.8"). Synchronized for fast and accurate part transfer, both spindles feature a full continuous C-axis with braking system and employ P4 high precision bearings for stability and heavy cutting ability.

"The power, precision and versatility of the QuickTECH T8 HYBRID mill/turn center enable it to totally machine an extensive range of complex part sizes, contours and configurations," said Nicole Conrad, Absolute's Chief Marketing Officer.

The high-production CNC milling and turning center features a rigid 12-station BMT-55 live tooling turret with a 5 HP spindle motor and 80 mm of true linear Y-axis travel. The turret has fast servo motor indexing and rigid hydraulic clamping; all 12 stations can be live. The sub-spindle features a 4-axis gang tooling system consisting of linear X-, Y- and Z-axes plus a rotary 360° B-axis. The sub tool post features 5 OD turning tools, 9 ID turning tools and 12 live tools, the latter of which are mounted in a continuous 360° B-axis and are powered by a 2 HP spindle motor. Rigid tapping is standard in both the turret and the B-axis.
