This machine is a new milestone in the range of large scale horizontal machining centers in regards of dimensions, rigidity and flexibility.
Conceptual the SMX 5239 was designed for cutting of frame parts for sheet metal machine tools.
The machine base structure consists of a massive travel column for pre-positioning, which integrates another dynamic 2-axes unit for main work movements.
The Z-axis movement is realized by a turnable, hydrostatic round ram, which is designed for adapting various interchangeable working heads for different operations.
The tool spindle is integrated in the hydrostatic round ram and provides high speed and torque by a 2-step gear box.
In front of the base machine, the X-axis saddle unit carries a large NC rotary table with Ø2000 mm, which is capable to clamp pallets with a size of 4500 x 2000 mm.
Another highlight is the possibility for unmanned production by utilizing a pallet changing system for automatic change of 3 pallets in succession.
For high flexibility as well as for shortest setup times a tool magazine with a large capacity of 360 tools automatically changes the tools into spindle by robot.
