3 axes in the tool /
2 axes in the workpiece
due to thermo-symmetric design
In mineral casting technology
5-axis milling and turning, also simultaneously
Pallet changer / handling systems / robot systems
The large working area in relation to the installation area is unparalleled. Whether 3- or 5-axis, the workpiece can be optimally processed, even with heavy and/or complex components. Problem-free crane loading of all components possible.
MODIFIED GANTRY DESIGN
The machine bed in modified gantry design has been realized in mineral casting technology. This combination offers optimum main axis support with excellent damping properties. For perfect results in high-precision machining using up to 5 axes.
Drive technology and tables
Hermle’s swivelling rotary table concept has revolutionised 5-axis machining. Delivers maximum dynamics, whether single-sided or tandem drive, even with heavy components. The C-axis drive is available with worm drive or torque motor. All tables can also be configured for automation with pallet clamping systems.
The C 42 can be equipped with two-piece or compact spindles. All tool spindles can be replaced quickly and easily during servicing. With the various speed ranges and tool interfaces, the tool spindles are suitable for a wide range of machining tasks.
Bed flushing/production cabin
For reliable machining processes in automated systems. The production cabin with chip-waste-optimised stainless steel cladding and integrated bed flushing ensures ideal chip disposal.
Tool change in pick-up technology
Quick and reliable tool change from the pick-up magazine to the tool spindle.
Pick-up tool magazine
The C 42's tool magazine holds up to 42 tools in the standard version and is integrated into the machine bed to save space. The special magazine bearing ensures extremely smooth running for maximum precision, even when tools are loaded main-time parallel.
Additional magazines for long running times and complex machining above all, particularly in automated systems. A wide variety of designs with up to 528 magazine pockets. The specially developed tool management software ensures use of an intelligent retooling strategy when loading the pick-up magazine.
