VARIO 5-axis

VARIO 5-axis dynamic 5-axis center is a machine tool designed and prepared for continuous machining in five axes. A rotary-tilting table Ø450 mm allows for precise and quick execution of complex details. Torque motors used for the rotary axes guarantees dynamics and backlash-free operation for years. Precise encoders mounted in the center of the rotation of axis provide the angular position.

VARIO 5-axis machine tool is perfect for comprehensive machining of molds and dies, as well as for machining very accurate parts with complex spatial shapes and body parts using continuous 5-axis machining.

Travel in Y axis of 600 mm ensures full coverage of the worktable surface without the need to rotate the details by 180˚, which is important when making molds. Z axis travel is 460 mm and allows optimal use of space for detail and fastening.
Digital control: Heidenhain TNC640 with 19″ touch screen. Digital servo drives and motors for axis and spindle drive. Single block machining time 0.5 ms. Klartext dialog programming. LOOK AHEAD function (512bl). Wide selection of built-in fixed cycles. Software 1 (plane tilt) and Software 2 (SPLINE) options from Heidenhain as standard.
