The Mikron HPM 1850U is a high performance, traveling table type machining center that offers simultaneous five-axis machining for workpieces up to 56.5 ft3 in volume. Weighing 661 lbs. less than comparable machines containing conventional cast slides, the HPM 1850U boasts a pallet size of 49.2” x 39.4”, as well as high dynamics in the X and Y-axes and greater accuracy and surface finish. The HPM 1850U is equipped with a HSK63 tool interface and a milling head driven by a direct drive high torque motor, which generates torsional force without the use of belts or gears. The machine offers a 35 kW spindle output at 15,000 rpm with over 190 Nm torque. Additionally, the spindle housing is tightly attached to the rotor, allowing gear clearance and virtually eliminating signs of wear and tear. The Mikron HPM 1850U contains a number of user-friendly features optimized for use in the workshop. Mikron’s revolutionary Smart Machining Modules enable the HPM 1850U to use sensors that allow machinists to utilize the Advanced Process System (APS) for monitoring and recording spindle vibrations. Further, the machine’s iTNC 530 Heidenhain control system provides operators with free contour programming, freely definable sub-programming, and pre-set work cycles for automation during unmanned hours. Operators also benefit from the presence of two stations to minimize downtime, as well as a 3-position pallet changer that enables a response to urgent orders without requiring the tear down of set-ups. Designed with the operator’s comfort in mind, the HPM 1850U is equipped with a lifting mechanism on the pallet changer that provides a comfortable loading height. The machine is also fitted with rotating loading and unloading stations that contain equipment ideal for turning and securing large workpieces. As apart of its innovative design, Mikron removed the pedestal typical to large machines from the HPM 1850U and replaced it with an apparatus that lifts the pallet to the height of the worktable. This innovation makes the HPM 1850U the only machine of its size with ground-level access to both loading stations.
