Heckert HEC 500 D U5 MT for single set up production

Added to MTDCNC by Starrag UK Limited on 04 December 2014

With a NC swivel head providing a fifth axis, the Heckert HEC 500 D U5 MT horizontal machining centre available from Starrag UK provides the ultimate in effective and efficient single set-up production embracing turning as well as milling and drilling.

In addition to reduced cycle times and therefore reduced manufacturing costs, the machine also provides highly-accurate machining thanks to thermo-symmetrical design as well as minimised operating costs via highly efficient drive, hydraulic, pneumatic, cooling and control systems.

With X, Y Z traverses of 750 mm by 700 mm by 725 mm, and traverse rates of 65 m/min, the HEC D U5 MT can accommodate loads of 600 kgs (500 kgs when turning) and can be supplied with a range of spindle motors, from a 37kW/350 Nm torque version up to a 50 kW unit that can quickly attain 20,000 revs/min.

The head can be positioned to an accuracy of six arc/secs within the -15 to 195deg swivel range, to provide contouring in conjunction with the 900 revs/min NC rotary table and involving B and C axis routines. The head is particularly suited to inclined drilling

With a 60-tool automatic tool changer as standard (320 tools optional) and chip-to-chip times of just three secs, plus a pallet change time of only 10 secs, the machine can be used individually or within manufacturing cells with pallet storage or integrated elements of a flexible production system.

In addition, efficient chip removal ensures optimal conditions during dry machining.
