FERMAT machine tool manufacturer horizontal boring mill new CNC 5 axis continuous milling machine FGU with Servo drive universal automatic milling head

FERMAT’s new 5-axis horizontal milling machine utilizes FERMAT’s own servo-drive universal automatic milling head (UHAmi SDHS) that rotates ± 180° on 2 axes (A and C), driven by a total of 4 servomotors with pinions, 2 on each rotary axis, master-slave, that eliminates backlash. It has a speed of 5,000 rpm, thanks to 12 bearings on the drive mechanism and an advanced form of lubrication.  With the 4 servomotors, both A and C axes can be moved simultaneously, allowing uninterrupted, continuous milling using all 5 machine axes at the same time. When the A and/or C axes are not rotating, they are firmly locked in place by hydraulic brakes.

The machine’s headstock is built inside a double column on 4 linear guideways. In the place of the boring spindle is a drive shaft transferring power from the 53 kW, water-cooled motor all the way down to the milling head.

All main components, such as the headstock, column, beds, tables, and milling head are designed and manufactured by FERMAT.
