Pole position for the 5-axis universal machining center

  • The swiveling/rotary table and the horizontally arranged spindles ensure a high degree if productivity, best accessibility and high stability. The 5-axis universal machining centers are ideally suitable for workpieces requiring 5-sided machining, with compound angle holes and surfaces with forms and flow profiles and for precision components.

    First of all the 5-axis universal machining center with its swiveling/rotary table has the advantage over the swivel head machines that angled surfaces need not be interpolated over two or even three axes. Equally sized workpieces can be machined with shorter linear axes. In competition with swing table cinematics and a vertical milling spindle, our 5-axis universal machining center has the obvious advantage of a horizontally positioned spindle and the associated improved chip discharge as well as increased stability.

    With their automatic pallet-changing options and an additional tool magazine they are ideally equipped for any type of automation. They combine the substantial experience potential of the GROB engineers in the field of automated production systems. The excellent accessibility to the working area is a distinct advantage for job shops with small production batches that need to change over frequently.
