The G550T Horizontal Machining Center features an innovative design that allows it to simultaneously machine parts in 5-axes as well as turn them. The unique feature of the machine is its table that operates in the A & B axes and can also turn parts at 800 RPM. This turning capability opens up new opportunities for manufacturers to machine wheels, certain housings and parts requiring both turning and milling in just one set up.
The G550T model’s horizontal spindle design provides access to the workpiece on all faces including the inside of hollow parts in addition to using the maximum tool length. The three linear and two rotary axes permit five-sided machining as well as five axis simultaneous interpolation. The G550T design also provides excellent front and side access for part loading as well as optimized chip flow. Its compact design has a small footprint.
The G550T machining strokes are 31.4″ (800mm) in the X axis, 37.4 (950mm) in the Y axis and 40.1″ (1020mm) in the Z axis. The table has maximum rotation of 240° in the A and 360° in the B axes as well as it 800RPM turning capability. The table is driven by a torque motor for the turning feature and will be capable of various clamping systems depending on part requirements. Linear glass scales are provided on all axes.The GROB G550T provides a high level of flexibility, ideal for general machining and configurable to the agile needs of contract machine shops while its proven longevity, rigidity and precision are suitable for high-volume cell and system tasks.
