Hartford's 5BC X300 Five-Axis Machining Centre - The Highly Efficient Solution for Aerospace Users

Hartford's 5BC X300 Five-Axis Machining Centre - The Highly Efficient Solution for Aerospace Users

Added to MTDCNC by TW Ward CNC Machinery Ltd on 27 October 2016

With powerful 12,000 and 15,000 revs/min spindle options, plus an innovative swivel-type fork head with +/-240 degrees of C axis movement and +/-100 degrees of B axis swivel, the new Hartford double-column 5BC-X300 five-axis machining centre delivers all the power and versatility demanded by aerospace OEMs and their top tier suppliers.

Available from T W Ward CNC Machinery (Ward CNC), Hartford’s exclusive UK and Ireland agent, the 5BC-X300 has been specifically developed and constructed for the efficient (high metal removal rates) and effective (high accuracy) single-set-up machining of a wide range of workpieces – especially those processed by aerospace-focused companies and including engine components in difficult-to-machine materials through to larger, aluminium airframe parts.

Two spindle options are available, the HSK100 12,000 revs/min unit as standard and the HSK63 15,000 revs/min option, with both offering excellent torque characteristics of 325 Nm and 88 Nm, respectively.

The machine can be supplied with beds from three to six metres long and 2.1 metres wide, offering working envelopes from three to six metres by three metres by 1.1 metres, to cover all machining demands.

In addition, the machine’s rapid traverse rates of up to 16 metres/min are complemented by automatic tool storage options up to 60 tools.

Of rigid construction for consistently highly stable machining, the machine’s Fanuc CNC routines include functionality such as Dynamic Collision Monitoring - which increases operator safety by monitoring the working area to prevent collisions – as well as kinematic options that streamline rotary axes re-calibration and therefore take volumetric accuracy to a new, higher level.

Hartford’s new double-column 5BC-X300 five-axis machining centre will meet all the demands faced by aerospace OEMs and their top tier suppliers
