Modular 5-Axis Profiler reduces aerospace parts machining time.

October 1, 2014

Used to machine structural aluminum parts, Cincinnati XP carries 1–5 A/B-axis spindle heads in traveling-gantry or -table design to allow completion of up to 5 parts per cycle. Rail-type design allows any practical X-axis length for carrying multiple gantries and creating multiple work zones. Rotary axis feedrates to 2,400 dpm are complemented by matched feedrates of 1,000 ipm on X/Y/Z axes. Spindle configurations include 3 spindles with 1 or 2 m center distance or 5 with 1 m center distance. Read More
