ROTARY B-AXIS MILLING HEAD
UNIQUE B-AXLE DESIGN
The BX700DD's B-axis gear mechanism has been upgraded from a double worm wheel / shaft for direct drive. In addition to smooth and powerful torque, the direct drive system features higher rotation speed, high servo response, zero backlash and exceptional dynamic accuracy for optimal surface finish of the workpiece. The external cooling system effectively minimizes structural thermal distortion and accuracy deviation, in addition, the output torque is maintained as the temperature is kept constantly low and stable.
The rear end of the B axis shaft is equipped with an angular position encoder to increase the positioning accuracy of the B axis. The use of a direct drive motor on the B and C axis increases the overall accuracy and efficiency of the machine machining.
Pinnacle BX is the most profitable production investment for 5-axis simultaneously controlled machining centers. It brings positive and immediate results, improving machining accuracy and reducing cutting time.
The BX700 / BX500 is high speed, high accuracy with a HEIDENHAIN TNC640 5-axis machining center simultaneously controlled. Equipped with built-in 15000rpm spindle, B-axis swivel head ± 120 ° and C-axis rotary table Ø630mm (built-in DD C-axis) to optimize machining space and enable finishing complex parts in one setup and reduce cycle time.
PNEUMATIC BALANCING SYSTEM
The Z axis is pneumatically balanced with high response pneumatic cylinders. Additional air reservoir installed to increase balancing efficiency, ensuring fast and stable Z-axis movement, ensuring high surface quality.
SPINDLE COOLING SYSTEM
The spindle oil cooler maintains a constant spindle temperature and ensures a long service life. It also provides high machining efficiency and high accuracy.
ROLLER LINEAR GUIDE
The X / Y / Z axes have roller guides for optimal rigidity and speed. 6 rollers on the X / Z axes minimize the damping effect.
RIGID BASE AND MACHINE SADDLE
Drive motors directly coupled with preloaded and oversized ball screws to ensure cut quality.
BLANK BALL SCREW WITH COOLING SYSTEM
Oil cooling by ball screws on the X, Y, Z axes minimizes thermal deformation and backlash while ensuring smooth movement during high-speed feed.
CNC CONTROLLER SYSTEM
The BX series is a high-speed and precise 5-axis machining center HEIDENHAIN TNC640, simultaneously controlled. Standard with built-in 15,000 rpm spindle.
The PLANE function makes it easy to define a tilted work plane so that everything happens faster.
TILTING DOWN THE WORK JACKET
The possibility of tilting the working plane. With cycle 19 with swivel heads or tilting tables. The operation is programmed normally in the machining plane, for example in the X / Y axis. The machine runs the program in the plane that has been tilted by one or more rotary axes in relation to the main plane.
DCM (DYNAMIC COLLISION MONITORING)
With DCM, you can check for collisions in test run mode before actually machining the part. To avoid machine downtime. Simulation allows you to maintain security processes.
TCPM FUNCTION (TOOL CENTER POINT MANAGEMENT)
In five-axis operations, the TCPM function reliably moves the tool along the contour and ensures that the work surface is not damaged. Maintain the position of the tool tip when positioning with tilted axes.
Using the TCPM function, the iTNC 530 automatically corrects the tool path in terms of machine geometry and tool length, as well as compensating the tool radius in three dimensions.
CHIP FLUSHING SYSTEM
The chip flushing system removes chips inside the housing, which prevents chip accumulation and possible damage to linear guides and ball screws.
COOLING THROUGH SPINDLE (OPTIONAL)
A 20 bar high pressure pump and an auxiliary tank give the CTS system the best chip removal performance.
CHIP CONVEYOR (OPTION)
A hinge or scraper type chip conveyor at the front of the machine (left or right head option) removes the chips from the machine.
KINEMATICE OPT. (OPTION)
Kinematice Opt. is an important component that helps to meet these high requirements: when the HEIDENHAIN touch probe is inserted, the three-dimensional touch probe cycle measures the rotary axes of the machine fully automatically. The measurement results are the same whether the axis is a turntable, tilting table or turret.
