The C 50 U Dynamic large-scale machining center from Hermle Machine Co. (Franklin, WI) is the company’s largest machining center to date, and extends its best-selling C series capabilities to larger, heavier parts and molds. The unit features X-, Y-, and Z-axis travels of 1000, 1100, and 700 mm respectively, and carries a generous maximum workpiece weight of 2,000 kg. Production potential is optimized by a rapid traverse linear rate of 60 m/min in the X- and Y- axes and 55 m/min in the Z-axis. The Y-axis provides tandem drive for higher machine dynamics. The unit is available with a single NC swiveling rotary table ¬ featuring a clamping surface of up to Ø700 mm ¬ or the optional NC swiveling rotary table with a clamping surface of Ø1150 mm x 900 mm. Both tables utilize an integrated torque motor (C axis) and a tandem drive motor (A axis). The A and C axes also increase flexibility by offering a swivel range extending +30º/-115º. The unit is ideal for the full simultaneous 5-axis and/or 5-sided machining of large sized automotive and aircraft parts or molds requiring high precision operation. The maximum part dimension is a diameter of 1,000 mm and height of up to 810 mm, with precision in the single-digit µ range.
