Kitamura Mycenter-HX300iG/400: Compact HMC with large work envelope

Kitamura Machinery offers the Mycenter-HX300iG/400, a small footprint horizontal machining center (HMC) that features a large work envelope of 460mm by 510mm by 560mm (XYZ) with a maximum workpiece diameter of 500mm and maximum workpiece height of 745mm.

An available 400mm table option offers additional workholding possibilities. An additional 5th-axis can be added to both pallets in the field for increased flexibility and less handling of more complex parts.

A 22kW, 15 000RPM, #40 taper, direct drive, dual contact spindle offers the rigidity to handle a variety of exotic materials. A 20 000 RPM high-speed, dual contact spindle is an available option.

The HX300iG/400 is automation ready and field expandable up to an 8-station pallet pool for unmanned operation potential. FMS connectivity is an available option. The standard fully integrated 4th axis rotary table with integral drive motor enables high speed rapids of 150RPM, reducing out of cut time, eliminating backlash and providing positioning accuracy of ±2 arc sec.

A field expandable 50-tool fixed pot ATC allows for the addition of up to 200 tools as needs change. A fast 1.3 seconds tool-to-tool change contributes to the reduction in overall cycle time.

The Mycenter-HX300iG/400 is manufactured in Japan with premium grade castings that are meticulously hand-scraped and assembled.

Positioning accuracy is ±0.002mm/full stroke with 67 million pulse encoder technology. Rapid/cutting feeds of 60MPM, ballscrew cooling and state-of-the-art fine resolution (10 nanometer) optical linear scale feedback in XYZ linear axes are all standard features.

Kitamura’s interactive touchscreen icon driven Arumatik-Mi control offers user friendly features such as on demand HELP guidance, visual work setting, maintenance support functions, Anywhere-Remote E-mail status update technology and a 19″ swivel colour LCD to easily guide the user in a completely customizable and expandable control environment.
