New Digitally Enhanced Hawk® TC-200CX, Now on Display At IMTS 2002, Offers High Accuracy Machining Performance


CINCINNATI, OH (September 4, 2002) -The all-new digital featured Hawk® TC-200CX Turning Center from Cincinnati Machine is equipped with the Siemens A2100Di digital control and drive technology. It can be seen in action for the first time in the U.S. at Cincinnati's IMTS 2002 Both #8101.

The A2100Di digital controls, drives and motors, now featured across the entire Hawk line, are complete with Profibus interface technology for enhanced I/O communications.

The Hawk-TC-200CX offers increased power, torque and rapid traverse rates, providing faster cycle times for higher productivity, increased accuracy and improved surface finish.

In addition, it offers maintenance-free linear guideways on X and Z axes for increased rigidity and dynamic stiffness, as well as reduced friction. This also results in the virtual elimination of wear, minimal heat generation and reduced energy requirements.

Repositioning of the spindle drive motor and additional ventilation improve thermal stability to maintain consistent component accuracy. A GE Fanuc 21i-TA CNC is available as an option.

The Hawk TC-200CX maintains positioning accuracy of ±3 microns in X-axis and ±4 microns in Z-axis. Reliability accuracy of ±1 micron is achievable in both axes.

A universal 12-station turret disk is standard, allowing for any combination of OD and ID tools. This combination provides a tool-to-tool index time of 0.4 seconds.

Options for increased productivity include a swarf conveyor, parts catcher and bar feeder, high pressure coolant, and collet chuck.
