The Mikron HPM 1350U is a high performance machining center that offers simultaneous five-axis machining, while also providing dynamic performance and high precision. Specially designed with linear motor technology for the rotary axis, the HPM 1350U allows for large axis movements with unrestricted access and is the ideal choice for heavy cutting and precise machining. Built with a versatile milling head and a 43.42 in. diameter rotary/tilt table, the HPM 1350U handles loads up to 3,306.9 lbs. with a rotational speed up to 40 rpm. A direct drive high torque motor drives the milling head, assuring faster and more dynamic machining with a 38kW spindle output at 15,000 rpm with 193 torque. Mikron’s use of the torque motor precludes the need for a gearbox, as well as any belts or wires that could affect the machine’s precision. Additionally, the milling head is constructed to swivel simultaneously with a spindle up to 136 degrees, and the swivel axis can be indexed degree by degree to make precise use of the spindle motor’s high torque ability. The presence of a hydraulic clamping device for the spindle allows boring and machining procedures to be carried out from any position. The HPM 1350U is also outfitted with Mikron’s revolutionary Smart Machining Modules, which use sensors to allow machinists to utilize the Advanced Process System (APS) for monitoring and recording spindle vibrations. Designed to switch between vertical and horizontal multi-axis machining processes in 1.7 seconds, the HPM 1350U can accommodate a wide variety of applications, ranging from production type prismatic parts to complex tool and die work, in a single set up. Mikron also suited the HPM 1350U with a standard 46-position tool magazine, and a powerful Heidenhain iTNC 530 control system that offers a host of features, including 3-D graphics and cutter compensation, advanced high-speed functions, a 2.0 Gigabyte hard drive, and a 15 in. TFT flat screen.
