Kern Precision Inc. has introduced an ultra precision five‐axis HSC machining center. Besides its precision high speed, five‐axis capabilities, the Triton has a large, three‐axis work envelope making the machine ideal for a range of three to five axis parts in a variety of materials from stainless steel to titanium in hard or soft materials. The Triton has a reinforced Armorith granite base with a hydrostatic guiding system with a newly engineered robust headstock in a monocoque design. The machine is equipped with a high speed spindle with 40,000 RPMs and 18 Nm of torque along with a 25-position ATC (or optional 50 or 75 position ATC).

Additionally, the machining center can be configured with an automated workpiece or robot handling system. The control unit of the Triton is the industrial standard Heidenhain control, which provides users with a remarkable graphical user interface that is both friendly and easy to use. Further, the optional Dynamic Collision Monitoring system provides users the security of three- to five‐axis collision protection. The five‐axis table features an integrated pneumatic chuck configured to handle virtually any part that fits in a space of 250 mm in diameter and 228 mm in height. The precision trunion table is German engineered with hydrodynamic torque drives for high speed five‐axis simultaneous machining. Further, there is sufficient space for a separate table chuck, a clamping device or vice in front of the 4th/5th axis table.
