FERMAT’s Favorite Table-type Horizontal Boring Mill Takes Command, with a Robust Column, Large Spindle—and Powerful Optional Ram

May 12, 2016  

FERMAT’s most popular table-type horizontal boring mill WFT 13 CNC incorporates the latest technology and design concepts affording manufactures worldwide the most efficient and cost-effective machining of large and heavy workpieces in its category.  It handles the toughest manufacturing demands with a rugged column, a robust headstock, a spindle diameter of 130 mm (or 150 mm), spindle travel of 730 mm, and an extremely precise CNC rotary table that holds and rotates a workpiece weighing up to 20 metric tons.

WFT 13 CNC can machine with ease workpieces 5 meters wide and 3.5 meters tall along 4 linear axes, plus the table’s rotary axis; and its newer version, WFT 13 R CNC, boasts a powerful ram that can punch an additional 700 mm into the center of the workpiece, creating machining possibilities along 5 linear axes.  WFT 13 CNC executes a range of machining techniques from standard hard-hitting tasks to the most complex, fine and exact.

A video describing the ins and outs of its column, spindle and ram can be seen here.

Contributing to its exceptional strength and precision is WFT 13 CNC’s Y-axis ball screw with a diameter of 80 mm and its rigid, well-designed column.  Its other features include Heidenhain linear scales, a spindle thermal monitoring system, and a no stick-slip rotary table for outstanding machining precision.
