Mikron recently released the HSM 400U ProdMed, the newest member of the Mikron ProdMed line of high-speed and high-performance machining centers that are specially suited for the medical manufacturing industry. The HSM 400U ProdMed offers the levels of reliability, traceability and accuracy required for machining medical implants, equipment and other components. The HSM 400U ProdMed includes a Heidenhain iTNC 530 control system and smart machining modules that provide advanced levels of monitoring critical to the production of medical implants and equipment. The system allows the machine to automatically check and evaluate tools and workpieces, inspect tools for breakage and perform measurements of the workpiece. Additionally, the smart machine modules automatically monitor spindle vibration, calibrate machine geometry and transmit process status messages to an operator’s cell phone. With powerful vector spindles available at 30, 42 or 54,000 RPM, the HSM 400U ProdMed provides excellent surface finish and part detail, while significantly reducing machining time for semi-finishing and finishing operations. The machine’s high dynamics, with 1.7g acceleration, facilitate the reduction of non-productive time and help to maximize spindle utilization. The HSM 400U ProdMed possesses the capability for 24/7 unattended machining through the inclusion of a palletchanger with 20 pallets. The machine’s automation potential is further enhanced through an automatic table and workpiece cleaning system, efficient chip evacuation and the ability to measure workpieces arranged outside the machine. The HSM 400U ProdMed’s unique monoblock bridge design achieves high precision by maintaining a high level of rigidity. The machine’s polymer concrete construction provides increased performance in the areas of dampening, thermal stability and tool life. Also, attention to the ergonomics of the machine’s design allows for uncharacteristically easy access to workpieces.
