The MMH 500 horizontal machining center (HMC) comes with 60m/min linear axis speed and a 12,000rpm direct drive spindle (optional 15,000rpm) for increased machine throughput per spindle and high-speed cutting capabilities.

An infinite contouring B-axis table delivers higher precision part cutting. Designed for 480V power connections, the MMH 500 is designed and built with North American Controls Design and Safety Standards, conforming to U.S., Canadian, and Mexican safety standards.

Heavy-duty, continuous dress creep-feed grinders

The Blohm Profimat XT heavy-duty, continuous-dress, creep-feed grinder offers rigidity, power, and fast axis speeds for higher grinding productivity.

Table speeds greater than 1,500ipm, along with a quick changeover wheel-dresser system and improved acceleration/deceleration rates, offer optimal positioning speeds and short cycle times.

With an 80hp spindle and up to 8"-wide grinding wheels, the Profimat XT can machine large parts with high stock-removal requirements. Speed improvements double axis movement and triple acceleration/deceleration. Overall grinding cycle times fall as much as 30%. To improve stiffness, the machine uses a ribbed base and column casting with dual ballscrews for Z-axis cross-grinding stability.

A Siemens Sinumerik 840D sl control features a touchscreen monitor and Windows-based graphical user interface, optimized to provide grinding process data, machine health monitoring, operational efficiency, and graphical product information.

Aluminum rougher end mills

An expanded line of aluminum rougher (AR) end mills are designed to provide performance and tool life within aluminum and non-ferrous roughing applications. Available in 2- and 3-flute configurations, coolant or non-coolant through, the tools provide high material removal rates and are optimized to slot 30% faster than standard AF series tooling. The coolant-through design directs coolant directly at the cutting edge, aiding chip and heat removal, even during deep-pocketing applications.
