B-AXIS-SWIVEL MILLING HEAD

Hi-Speed, Hi-Power, Hi-Torque, Built-in Spindle 15000 rpm, swivels ±120°

Unique B-axis Design

The transmission mechanism of B axis for model BX700DD is innovated from dual worm wheel/shaft to direct drive. In addition to the smooth and powerful torque, the direct driving system features higher rotation sped, high servo response, zero backlash, and outstanding dynamic accuracy for the optimum workpiece surface finish. The external cooling system efficiently minimizes the structural thermo deformation and accuracy deflection, moreover, the output torque is upheld since the temperature is constantly kept in low and stable level.

The rear end of B axis shaft is fitted with and angular position coder to boost positioning accuracy of B axis. The application of direct drive motor in B and C axis increases the overall accuracy as well as machining efficiency of the machine.

Pinnacle BX is the best cost-effective manufacturing investment of 5-axis simultaneously controlled machining centers, it brings positive and instant results by improving machining accuracy and reducing cutting time.

BX700 / BX500 is high speed, high accuracy with HEIDENHAIN TNC640 5-axis simultaneously controlled machining center. Equips 15000rpm built-in spindle, B-axis swivel head ±120°, and C-axis Ø630mm rotary table (Built-in DD C-axis) to optimize machining space and allows complex workpieces to be finished in just one setup and reduces cycle time.

Outstanding Craftsmanship

Pneumatic Balance System

The Z-axis is pneumatic counter-balanced via high response pneumatic cylinders. Plus an air reservoir tank to boost the balancing performance, ensuring fast and stable Z-axis movement, giving high surface finish.


Cooling System to Spindle

The spindle oil cooler permits the spindle to keep a constant temperature running and ensures long service life. It also provides high efficiency machining and high accuracy.

Linear Roller Guideway

X/Y/Z axes adopt roller guideways for optimum rigidity and speed. 6 rolling shoes on X/Z axes minimize damping effect.

Hollow Ball Screw with Cooling System

Oil cooling through ball screws on X, Y, Z axis minimizes thermal deformation and backlash, while ensuring smooth motion during rapid traverse.

CNC CONTROLLER SYSTEM

BX series is high speed, high accuracy with HEIDENHAIN TNC640 5-axis simultaneously controlled machining center. Standard with 15000rpm built-in spindle.

PLANE Function

The PLANE feature makes it easy to define a tilted working plane so that making everything much.

Tilting the Working Plane

Use tilting the working plane. With Cycle 19 with swivel heads or tilting tables. You program the operation as usual in the working plane, for example in X/Y. The machine runs the program in a plane that has been tilted by one or more rotary axes with respect to the main plane.

DCM (Dynamic Collision Monitoring)

DCM enables you to check for collision in the test run mode before acutally machining a part. To avoiding machine dowtimes. Simulation for a safety process.

TCPM function (Tool Center Point Management)

In five-axis operations, TCPM function to move the tool reliably on the contour and ensure that the work surface is not damaged. Maintain the position of the tool tip when positioning with tilted axes.

With the aid of the TCPM function, the iTNC 530 automatically corrects the tool path for the machine geometry and the tool length as well as compensates the tool radiusin three dimensions.

Chip Flushing System

Chip flushing system is equipped to remove cutting chips inside of enclosure, which prevents chip accumulation and any possible damage to the linear guideways and ball screws.

Coolant Through Spindle (Option)

20 Bar high pressure pump and sub tank assure CTS system offers the highest efficiency of chip disposal.

Chip Conveyor (Option)

Hinge type or scraper type chip conveyor in front side of machine (able head to left or right) removes chips from machine.

Kinematice Opt. (Option)

KinematiceOpt. is an important component to help you meet these high requirements: With a HEIDENHAIN touch probe inserted, a 3-D touch probe cycle measures your machine's rotary axes fully automatically. The results of measurement are the same, regardless of whether the axis is a rotary table, a tilting table or a swivel head.
