NHX series high-speed, high-precision horizontal machining centers (HMCs) feature speedMaster motor spindles with high acceleration rates, plus Celos controls with Fanuc NC technology.

The X- and Z-axis guides are arranged to maximize rigidity of the bed, column, and spindle. The third-generation NHX 4000 is more stable than previous versions, supporting 1.2G acceleration in all axes and 60m/min rapid traverses. Hydraulic fixtures support easy automation. A standard pallet changer moves workpieces up to 882 lb.

5-axis workholding

The CL5, 5-axis workholding system offers faster, more accurate fixturing setups. The CL5 consists of three components: a subplate, a riser, and top tooling made up of a vise or a fixture plate. The subplate transforms a T-slot table into a modular fixturing plate, allowing flexible clamping and locating of other tooling and/or fixtures.

Every plate has built-in clamping and locating for risers, allowing quick, accurate setups. Designed to get the part up from the machine table, the Quintus quick-change riser allows 5-side part access. The Quintus combines the riser, quick-change capability, and precise location in one piece, and various fixture plates or vises can be readily mounted on top of it. Several versions of fixture plates, vises, and jaws are available.

Optical 3D surface metrology system

MarSurf CM series Optical 3D surface metrology systems combine confocal technology with high-precision 16-bit high dynamic range (HDR) technology to deliver high-resolution 3D surface topography data.

The technology allows for physical acquisition of a true-height signal as opposed to measuring height via pixel contrast or pattern projection. Confocal technology measures any material from highly light scattering to highly reflective. Stable construction and a robust optical principle produce reliable results for laboratory or production environments.

MarSurf CM systems provide micron and nanometer resolution surface finish and micro-geometry information including: 2D and 3D surface roughness, bearing area, flatness, depth, and volume. MarSurf CM systems deliver automation as part of the standard package.
