Chevalier Machinery’s FBB-110 130 series machine is a heavy-duty, high precision design of the FBB series of horizontal boring and milling machine a with rotary table and offers a range of machining applications.

The extra rigid design of the main machine body and column ensure outstanding structural stability, the company says. The one-piece machine base includes four guideways on the Z axis for full table support with no overhang issues.

The series features a one-piece Meehanite cast iron base with heavy-duty large boxways on X, Y and Z axes and is coated with anti-friction material for consistent accuracy and smooth movement. The high-quality C3 grade ballscrews are used on all axes for high precision positioning, the company says.

The 35-hp, 50-taper, large-diameter, cartridge-type, air-purged spindle runs with German made ZF gearbox that generates a maximum of 1,220 foot-pounds at 600 rpm to overcome most tough-material cutting conditions.

Spiral-type spindle cooling system provides constant, all-around lubrication, preventing thermal deformation and substantially, prolonging the life of the spindle, bearings and gears. The spindle can be extended (W axis) for deep-hole boring with high rigidity and superior machining accuracy, the company says.
