Hardinge announces the newest members of the GX-Series of Vertical Machining Centers as a standard product offering in North America. These machines are designed and built for a production environment. The machine can literally overlap one another to better utilize valuable floor space and to promote cell manufacturing. The unique design provides service and operator interface to only the front or back of the machines. This design allows the machines to be stacked in a line side by side since there is no need to access the sides of the machines. Donít let the small footprint fool you as the GX 300 & 510 packs a powerful punch.
A unique feature of this machine is the spindle torque and horsepower compared to other small footprint machines. With 20 horsepower and 99 ft-lbs of torque the GX300 & 510 is able to provide a solution for the aerospace, medical, defense, 3C, automotive and other industries, requiring high-value, complex parts from difficult to machine materials.
Some of the key differentiators of these machines are: Heavy-duty linear roller guide-ways ensuring a stiff machine design. High acceleration rates of the spindles and axes required for high production. Standard with swing arm ATC, required for high production. Also, this machine is designed to support single piece flow and/or automated parts handling.
The machines come standard with a Fanuc I Series OiMC control. The ATC is magazine capacity 20 Tools.
