G500FS : GROB-WERKE GmbH & Co. KG

G500FS

Machining center for frame structure and chassis parts
Thanks to its extra large working area, the G500FS is ideal for large structural components and allows machining of parts up to a size of 1,500 x 900 mm.
Furthermore, a narrow bridge ensures the best possible accessibility to the underside of the part for optimal 6-sided machining.

Spindle versions

Besides the broad range of spindles, the motorized spindles designed and produced by GROB itself are the preferred choice for optimized process design. These are optimally matched to the G500FS and have optimized quality features.

Motorized spindle versions
  • HSK-A63, 47 Nm, 12,000 rpm (standard)
  • HSK-A63, 47 Nm, 18,000 rpm (option)
  • HSK-A63, 83 Nm, 12,000 rpm (option)
  • HSK-A100, 186 Nm, 12,000 rpm (option)
  • HSK-A100, 340 Nm, 10,000 rpm (option)
GROB-Spindle Diagnostics (GSD)

GROB spindle diagnostics is a system that automatically monitors the condition of the motorized spindle. Benefits are a prolonged motorized spindle useful life, reduced tool wear and scheduled maintenance.

GROB Chip-in-Spindle Detection System (SiS)

This system is able to detect at an early stage tool clamping faults caused by chips between the plain surface and the spindle nose from 10 μm. So the machining process is optimized and rejects and damage are avoided.

Control systems

Choose between modern and powerful CNC control systems from market leaders for the G500FS.
