Horizontal Machining Centers For High-Production Machining

Makino's J3 horizontal machining center is a high-speed, high-production machine especially useful for high-volume parts manufacturing and numerous forms of automation and part transfer, especially for small automotive components and die cast aluminum parts. The machine can reduce overall costs by providing faster machining because of the higher spindle speeds and axis acceleration and deceleration. Non-cutting time is further reduced because of fast automatic tool changing and quick table index time, the company says.

Makino's J3 horizontal machining center is a high-speed, high-production machine especially useful for high-volume parts manufacturing and numerous forms of automation and part transfer, especially for small automotive components and die cast aluminum parts.

The machine can reduce overall costs by providing faster machining because of the higher spindle speeds and axis acceleration and deceleration. Non-cutting time is further reduced because of fast automatic tool changing and quick table index time, the company says.

The J3 Series has a flexible HSK-A50 spindle tool interface. It comes with a tool storage capacity of 15 tools, with options for additional tool capacity. Maximum tool diameter is 3.15" and maximum tool length is 12.20" with an 11-lb maximum tool weight. Tool changing time is reduced to 2.3 seconds.

The machine can use smart tools for more cycle time reductions, combining machining operations normally accomplished on special purpose machines.
