MedCenter5AX ultra-compact simultaneous 5-axis vertical machining center (VMC) with large work envelope machines highly complex, multi-sided parts in one setup.

Employing an X-, Y-, and Z-axis; additional tilting A-axis (±120°) and a rotary C-axis (360°) with a 0.001° minimum indexing command, machining high-precision, complicated parts can be completed in one operation. Maximum workpiece of 220mm x 175mm (8.7” x 6.9”) and maximum table load capacity of 20kg (44 lb) provide flexibility and versatility when machining small, highly precise, intricate parts.

Standard high-speed, direct-drive 4th- and 5th-axis rotary tables offer smooth simultaneous 5-axis movement for complex cutting applications. With a rigid design and equipped with high resolution optical scale feedback on all axes, the MedCenter5AX offers positioning accuracy of ±0.002mm (±0.000079”) and full stroke for various small part machining.

The standard, high speed 30,000rpm, 18kW (24.5hp) direct-drive HSK-E40 spindle provides rigidity and spindle stiffness for fine finishing capabilities. Offering standard air through spindle for dry cutting, the machine is also equipped to handle up to 1,000psi coolant through the spindle for deep-hole drilling.

The 40 tool magazine enables 1.5 second tool changes with the tool magazine located toward the back of the machine for optimum operator access.
