FERMAT’s new electric-spindle, right-angle automatic milling head (E-PHAmi) combined with FERMAT’s WFT 13 CNC is the perfect solution for customers looking for a powerful table-type horizontal boring mill with a strong output and continuous 5-axis milling and machining.  It can machine large workpieces of iron and steel weighing up to 15 metric tons on its special rotary table and execute perfect 5-axis milling and machining synchronized along the linear X, Y, Z axes and rotary B and A axes.

FERMAT’s electric-spindle, right-angle milling head can be positioned on the A axis and rotate ±95°.  The accuracy of the milling head positioning is 0.001°.  It utilizes Siemens Sinumerik Operate 4.8 control system and a Weiss independently powered electric spindle with a max of 15,000 rpm for machining soft metals, like aluminum (used in the aircraft industry), and 8,000 rpm for machining steel.

FERMAT’s tough E-PHAmi milling head is independently powered and positioned by 2 motors, master-slave, for powerful and precise continuous 5-axis CNC milling and machining. The electric spindle works independently of the main spindle of the headstock, utilizing its own drive and bearings.  The milling head E-PHAmi is designed and manufactured by FERMAT, which guarantees high quality of the components.

Watch the video showing FERMAT’s new electric-spindle, right-angle automatic milling head in action.

When 5-axis continuous milling or machining isn’t required (no rotary movement along the A axis needed), the milling head can be hydraulically clamped into position.  Or, it can be automatically removed and you can tear and rip deep into the center of large workpieces of iron or steel using the headstock’s boring spindle which has an extension of 730 mm.

The specially-built 15-metric-ton CNC rotary table operates in two modes: turning at 2 rpm during normal milling and machining and at 5 rpm for continuous 5-axis milling and machining.  The table has a finely ground rack-and-pinion construction with a stronger gearbox and servo motors.

Excellent laser measurements and ballbar tests, 3D volumetric measurements with industry-leading results showing extremely high-precision on such large horizontal boring mills, ensure the table’s spot-on accuracy.

An important feature of FERMAT’s new electric-spindle, right-angle automatic milling head (E-PHAmi) is that it can also be used on FERMAT’s floor-type horizontal boring mills to handle even larger workpieces.
