YES, Hwacheon does have an integrated Multi Axis Turning Center – Check out the T2

Hwacheon T2- Integrated Multi Axis Turning Center

Process-Integrated Multi Axis Turning Center

T2 can handle a variety of complex processes, from turning to milling in one setting. With optional available second main spindle, optional two longitudinal turrets and Y-axis, the T2-series turning center can be specifically configured in 8 different combinations. The T2-series turning center will reduce your down time and increase your machining efficiency drastically make your work precise and productive.

T2 incorporates the new symmetry "Box-on-Box" module design to eliminate thermal extensions and to limit thermal displacement to a workpiece. The highly rigid main spindle, turret with integrated motors to minimize vibration, noise and power loss and to ensure best process performance. The secondary spindle and turret provide same performance and specifications as the primary units, To achieve best and most stable operations all guide-ways using Linear Roller guides. The added Y-axis and the powerful milling capability allow for process integrated machining with a relatively small footprint at highest flexibility.

New Heat-Symmetrical Structure

The new heat-symmetrical structure and the box-on-box structure translate to machine stability and rigidity. T2 series of turning centers deliver high-performance machining by performing high-speed machining and roughing simultaneously. The 45-degree bed angle and the perfect vibration absorption structure provide stability in all processing situations.

Class-Leading Dual Opposing Spindles

The dual opposing spindles in T2 series completely eliminate vibration and noise and minimize power loss in the spindles. The oil jacket cooling system is equipped as standard to limit thermal displacement. The primary and the secondary spindles are driven by two equally powered motors for more accurate control of the C-axis.

Eagle Fiber Laser – The Truth of the Impact of Increasing Power

Click here for a quick video on the Impact of increasing power with the Eagle Fiber Laser

Impact of Increasing Power

Eagle fiber laser is shown cutting 1/2-inch-thick steel from 4 to 15kW of power. As you increase power you increase cut speed on thick plate, but you also increase cut speed on thin sheet, if your machine has high enough acceleration (G's). Watch and read about:

•             The Power Effect - increasing laser power lowers cost & increases profits

•             The patented eVa cutting head, with only 3 consumables

•             Reliability by design - at any power level

Premier Machine Tool Midwest is proud to be the exclusive Eagle Fiber Laser distributor for the States of Wisconsin and UP of Michigan.

Index G420: Better than Good and Extremely flexible with maximum productivity

Index G420 Better than good and Extremely flexible with maximum productivity

For many modern metalworkers, ‘done-in-one’ machining has progressed from being a competitive advantage to a necessity. Current trends – smaller lot sizes to accommodate part variants, higher power density with smaller dimensions, increased quality requirements – leave companies with almost no other options than pursuing complete 5 machining in a single setup. Hardly any other machine tool manufacturer has addressed these customer needs with innovative machine concepts as consistently as INDEX with its G and R series.

While the G series has been extremely successful within the market, advancements in machine tool design and manufacturing have provided the opportunity to improve some aspects of the basic design of the machines, especially in the larger diameter range. As a result, INDEX has implemented a new design to create an innovative special class of turn-mill center, the INDEX G420.

The machine incorporates a polymer bed in monoblock design. The selected geometry and design provides such extraordinarily high inherent stability that the machine can be removed from the hook during installation and installed on its three-point support without requiring a foundation. With a machine weight of approximately 22 t and a footprint of around 15 m², this concept offers the best deflection resistance of any comparable machine on the market and, along with the generously dimensioned linear guides in the X and Z axes, ensures very good stability and damping properties. In addition, a greater than 5-1 ratio of static masses to moving masses not only provides excellent stiffness, but also enables brilliant dynamic properties with very low vibration.

The G420’s design is also unique in that it features a vertical working area in conjunction with 2 turrets at the bottom that have no inclined stem, thus ensuring excellent chip flow. Thanks to the polymer bed and despite the high machine weight, a very favorable ratio of working area to external dimensions has been achieved. In addition, the chip conveyor can be mounted on the left or right, depending on application requirements, so that a manufacturer can optimize use of existing floor space.

Much attention was paid to ergonomics in the new design. All relevant components, such as main and counter spindle, turret, motorized milling spindle, and tool magazine, are easily accessed by the operator. The low interfering edge, in connection with the selected low spindle position, not only corresponds to the latest ergonomic findings, but also ensures a technically favorable center of gravity. In addition, the loading and unloading area for setting up tools for the motorized milling spindle has been ergonomically positioned at spindle height.

The Z axis slides with the motorized milling spindle and the Y/B axis with hydrodynamic bearing support are symmetrically designed as a gantry and located above the axis of rotation. The INDEX G420 incorporates a high-performance drive (max. 26 kW, 110 Nm and 12,000 rpm) and a B axis driven directly by a torque motor and featuring hydrodynamic bearing support. This allows an incredibly diverse range of drilling and milling operations to be carried out. A Y stroke of +/-170 mm, B axis swivel range of +/-115 degrees and large X travel of 750 mm allow an operator to produce any geometry easily and productively with up to five-axis machining.

With the motorized milling spindle and two turrets, the INDEX G420 can access a total of 50 three tool carriers, a unique feature within the market. The milling spindle operates with a single or optional double-row tool magazine, which provides space for 58 or 116 tools (HSK-T63 or Capto C6). Tools weighing up to 10 kg and with a maximum length of 500 mm can be used as standard. Enabling the use of long projecting tools proves particularly beneficial for multi-axis machining.

The Y/B quill is moved by a torque motor with a direct measuring system. Since each turret is equipped with 12 tool locations, more than enough tools are available to cover even demanding tasks without requiring additional setup. This is for a strong benefit, even for the smallest batch sizes. The two turrets are equipped with VDI 40 tool mountings and each turret provides 12 stations, all of which can be equipped with live tools. The two tool carriers provide 7.5 kW, 35 Nm and speeds up to 5,400 rpm. Both turrets can be moved +/- 70 mm not only in the X and Z directions, but also by means of a linear Y axis.

For effective complete machining of long or shaft-type workpieces, up to 3 tool carriers – all with a Y axis – can be used. A turret steady can also be mounted on the turrets as an additional tool.

Thanks to the large working area and the distance between the main and counter spindles, simultaneous machining can be conducted with the motorized milling spindle and the tool turrets at the main and counter spindles with no risk of collision. By moving the tool turrets down, away from the collision zone, each tool carrier can machine freely on both spindles.

Both the main and counter spindles are fluid-cooled and provide a clearance of 102 mm. A size 340 clamping device can be used as standard. The maximum chuck size is 400. The maximum turning length of 1,600 mm allows economical machining of a very wide range of parts. The motorized main and counter spindles allow productive turning operations through their high dynamics, power (34 kW) and torque (35 Nm).

Optionally, a 2-axis handling unit can be integrated for loading and unloading parts weighing up to 20 kg, as well as removal of remnants. In short, the INDEX G420 is exceptionally designed for low-manned or, in some cases, unmanned operation.

The control system is an adapted Siemens 840D SL, which is operated via the Index iXpanel system. Thanks to the full-surface touch-sensitive interface, iXpanel provides the user with extremely convenient setup and control via softkeys.
