FERMAT’s WRF series floor-type horizontal boring mills

This optional tilting headstock is for FERMAT’s large floor-type horizontal boring mills with spindle diameter of 150 mm or 160 mm.  With a spindle extension of 1 meter and a ram stroke of 1.5 meters, milling and machining deep into the center of the workpiece weighing up to 100 metric tons is a snap.  And, with FERMAT’s tilting headstock, which tilts at angle of 0° to -8°, you can execute various machining techniques without needing to reset the workpiece, saving time and money.

Rotary encoders guarantee the accuracy of FERMAT’s tilting headstock, which is locked into place by hydraulic brakes anywhere between the absolute horizontal position of 0° and -8°.  Though, this type of headstock was designed especially for FERMAT’s customers manufacturing parts for wind turbines and offshore industries, it opens up a wide range of applications across a spectrum of modern industries.
