Horizontal Machining Centres
Horizontal Machining Centres by Makino
Horizontal machining is now available in both types of centres – 4-axis machining, as well as 5-axis machining.
High speed horizontal machining is about getting those chips out of the way of the cutter. Horizontal machining with our technology can improve your production.
With an extensive line of Makino 4-axis Horizontal Machining Centres (HMCs), Makino delivers the productivity and reliability essential for efficient production of both ferrous and non-ferrous parts. The industry-leading A-Series is packed with the technology manufacturers need to produce parts faster, more accurately and at a lower cost. Our MCC-, MCD- and MCF-Series are designed specifically to handle large parts including steel molds or other hardened materials with stability and precision.
The complete line of Makino 5-axis horizontal machining centres offer unprecedented levels of productivity, accuracy and automation, helping customers around the world gain a critical competitive edge by making the parts that matter.
For the most complex, full-on 5-axis applications, Makino has developed key technology that overcomes traditional limitations of 5-axis machines. Ultra-high-accuracy rotary axes and superior motion-control systems, for example, eliminate compound accuracy errors and maximise accuracy without compromising cycle-time reduction.
All Makino 5-axis machines are configurable for automated manufacturing, whereas any Makino’s 1-Series product can be configured for full 5-axis applications, making them ideal systems for efficient machining in aerospace and medical manufacturing.
Return on investment can also result simply from the switch to horizontal high speed machining. Horizontal machining centres eliminate the need for costly time and labor overheads by taking the need of manual chip removal, because the chips fall away instead.
