Five-axis machining centres from Dugard

Dugard (Hall 20, Stand 640) is showcasing a raft of new machines, including two five-axis models: the Kitamura MedCenter5AX for fast precise machining and the simultaneous Dugard GTX-620.

According to Dugard, the Kitamura MedCenter5AX five-axis vertical machining centre is an extremely compact and versatile machine. With X, Y and Z-axis travel of 254 x 330 x 330 mm over a 170 mm diameter table, the machine incorporates a 30 to 30,000 rpm spindle with an HSK-E40 spindle taper connected to a 40-tool ATC that can change tools in just 1.5 seconds.
Dugard’s new GTX-620 simultaneous five-axis machining centre offers 620 x 520 x 460 mm in X, Y and Z respectively, and the capacity to accept workpieces up to 700 mm diameter on the table. Available with a FANUC or Siemens 840D CNC, the GTX-620 provides spindle power up to 22 kW, a BT40 spindle taper and a 12,000 rpm spindle motor. The B-axis tilts from -50 to +110°, with the C axis capable of rotating a full 360°.
