With five machines of varying capacities on show, Hartford will forcibly demonstrate the cost-to-performance reputation of its world renowned double-column, open-fronted vertical machining centres, says exclusive UK distributor T W Ward CNC Machinery (Ward CNC).

  • DBC – 4260H
  • Tornado HCMC-1892AG

  • LG-500AP.

The large-capacity, 22 kW (optionally 26 kW) DBC-4260H has an impressive table of 4,150 mm by 2,040 mm able to handle loads of 10,000 kgs. X, Y and Z axes travels are 4,050 mm by 3,400 mm by 1,000 mm (optionally 1,200 mm) and the up to 60-tool toolchanger combines with the ISO 50 taper to handle most requirements.

With Heidenhain iTNC 530 CNC, the machine will be shown with Hartford’s Universal BC head that has 2.5deg indexing and through-spindle coolant.

The 26 kW HCMC-1892AG can handle loads of 3,000 kgs on its 2,000 mm by 920 mm table. With X, Y and Z axes travels of 1,800 mm by 920 mm by 700 mm, the 40-tool, Fanuc 0iMD-controlled machine also boasts 15 m/min traverse rates in all axes.

Able to accommodate loads of 500 kgs, the 1,200 mm by 560 mm table of the 24-tool MVP-10AP is complemented by X, Y and Z travels of 1,050 mm by 530 mm by 630 mm, respectively. Control system is Heidenhain iTNC 530.

With axes travels of 1,000 mm by 600 mm by 630 mm in X, Y and Z, respectively, and a 1,150 mm by 600 mm table able to handle 700 kgs loads, the 7.5/10 kW (optionally 11/15 kW) driven Pro-1000SG on display will feature a standard 24-tool toolchanger and a geared head. Utilising the Fanuc 0iMD CNC, the machine has rapid traverse rates of 20 m/min in all axes (optionally 24 m/min in X and Y), a cutting feed rate of 12 m/min in all axes and boasts a repeatability of +/- 0.003 mm.

The 24-tool LG-500AP completes the display. Fanuc 0iMD CNC again features on a machine with X, Y and Z travels of 520 mm by 420 mm by 450 mm.
