KITAMURA MYCENTER-HX400 HORIZONTAL MACHINING CENTER
The Right Horizontal Machine for High Production Machining!
Dimensions: 180"x95"x128"H Weight: 38,860 lbs Loading Fee: $1500
If you machine precision parts in medium to large quantities, large parts with extensive machining, or parts made from touch materials, consider the Mycenter-HX400 as your new partner in productivity!
Within a compact footprint is a powerful 25 HP AC motor, rock-solid box ways with precision ballscrews and blazing 1969 IPM feeds on each axis, rigid #40 taper spindle, incredibly quick 5 second pallet exchange and the versatility of a standard full 4th axis rotary table for both multi-part tombstone fixturing and complex multi-angle large part machining.
¢ Simultaneous X,Y and Z strokes: 26" x 24" x 22" (X,Y,Z) plus full 4th axis rotary table (0-360 degrees/0.001 degree increments) - The Mycenter-HX400i has a 15.7" x 15.7" table and utilizes table traverse design for the X & Y axis movement, a feature that reduces workpiece/spindle interference (by 2/3) common on machines with a traveling column design. The Mycenter-HX400i can execute simultaneous full travels throughout all 4 axes.
¢ High speed and high torque spindle: 35~13,000 (35~15,000 available) - The Mycenter-HX400i features a 25 horsepower AC spindle motor that drives Kitamura's advanced design 2-speed geared head and provides 13,000 rpm (15,000 rpm optional) maximum spindle speed and up 199 foot-pounds of torque for real machining power. The Mycenter-HX400i features the Dual Contact spindle system that provides dual contact of the spindle taper and flange face. This thermally stabilized #40 taper spindle is supported by double angular contact bearings to handle high thrust loads, and roller bearings for accuracy. The standard spindle chiller maintains a constant temperature at the spindle jacket to insure the highest level of precision.
¢ High speed rapid feed: 1,969 inch/minute (X,Y & Z) on solid box ways - Twin high-precision fine pitch ballscrews and twin servo motors deliver 1,969 ipm feedrates on all axes. Computerized lubrication is standard. Special rubber/copper way wipers. B-axes rapid feed is 15,000 degrees per minute (0.36 seconds per 90 degree rotate). Kitamura 5 year warranty on box ways.
¢ Ballscrew cooling system standard - The ballscrew cooling system circulates chilled oil through the X, Y & Z axes ballscrew shafts. This standard feature holds the ballscrew temperature at a constant, thereby minimizing thermal displacement allowing for higher accuracy through continuous operation.
¢ High speed 180 degree rotating 2-pallet APC - The Mycenter-HX400i features one of the fastest pallet changes of any machine in its class. It takes only 5 seconds to exchange pallets. The operator has easy access to the pallet in the loading station, and can reach all sides of a tombstone being loaded and unloaded of workpieces by simply activating a push button. Guarding between the work envelope and pallet station allows you to perform high velocity machining while another tombstone is being safely unloaded and reloaded.
¢ High speed ATC: 1 second (tool to tool) / 3.2 second (chip to chip) - Kitamura's Fixed Pot ATCs deliver tool storage capability without sacrificing productivity. The tool magazine keeps the next tool in the stand-by pot for fast, efficient tool change. 50 tool capacity is standard with 100 optional. œNo need to fear tool crashes with Kitamura's fixed pot design toolchanger because tools are always returned to the position you expected. What's more adjacent tool pots can be left empty to easily accommodate large diameter cutters, said a company spokesman.
¢ IAC (Intelligent Advanced Control) system 1 standard - The IAC System 1 controls the effects of heat displacement in order to ensure continuous machining accuracy. A combination of regulating sensors and machine efficiency monitors provide data on variable compensation values to the machine offsets thus minimizing inaccuracies in spindle axial growth and head casting growth.
¢ Exclusive Kitamura AI Nano control is standard - Delivers Â±0.00012" positioning accuracy per full stroke on all axes. This high response feedback system also increases contouring accuracy by 150 times, said the spokesman.
¢ High performance CNC - The Mycenter-HX400i features a state-of-the-art Kitamura-Fanuc 16iM control. Kitamura has packed this control with a numerous high-performance features as standard that other manufacturers offer as optional. Kitamura understands that shop floor space is valuable so the control folds flatly into the machine when it isn't being used.
