Feeler introduces HV-1100V vertical machining center

Feeler has introduced the Feeler HV-1100V, a high performance vertical machining center that features a rigid design and many innovative features to provide exceptional accuracy and machining efficiency. The newest of the Feeler HV line, the HV-1100V features a dedicated trunnion, 4+1 axis configuration and a 350mm rotary table. The trunnion is solidly built by Autocam with roller cam technology, and offers a 406mm by 356mm work envelope. The tilting A-axis has a full +/-120 degree of motion.


The Feeler HV-1100V’s reinforced cross-ribbed column structure and no counter-balance weight design dramatically improves torsional torque resistance and reduces low frequency resonance for optimal stability, according to the company. This design greatly reduces peck-drilling vibration and prevents oscillation normally caused by a counter-balance weight. The new Feeler design dramatically improves movement stability on the Z-axis and delivers 30 per cent increased rigidity for more accuracy, better workpiece finish and less waste.

The Feeler HV-1100V offers an X-Axis travel of 850mm, a Y-Axis travel of 490mm and a Z-Axis travel of 5250mm. Rigorous speed vibration control is ensured by utilising a rigid spindle that increases metal-removal rates by more than 30 per cent and improves machining accuracy and tool life. A maximum spindle speed of 12 000 RPM on 22kW direct drive and 40-taper spindle is standard.

The HV-1100V also features a 30-tool swing arm automatic toolchanger magazine with a tool-to-tool time of one second at 60Hz. A fast chip removal system with chip conveyor, automatic lubrication system and dust-proof electrical cabinet are all standard on the HV-1100V.
