Hwacheon’s Hi-Tech 750A YMC turning center is designed for machining high-precision, heavy-duty parts. It comes with a wide range of features to maintain precision and accuracy throughout the entire machining process. According to the company, machining accuracy is largely due to a high-torque, built-in gear-driven spindle that reaches up to 1,800 rpm, which reduces machining time and further enhances productivity when combined with its Y-axis and live-tooling functions.
The machine is equipped with an 18" chuck and can handle up to a 24" chuck with a maximum cutting length up to 4,250 mm and maximum cutting diameter of 760 mm. It also features a wide door window, enabling better visibility when machining large materials. The company says the machine also includes a highly rigid built-in tailstock, wide disc turret and powerful milling function, making it suitable for the heavy transport, construction and agriculture, and oil and energy industries.
Because endworking is often considered only as a preliminary step for shaft work typical of the automotive industry, potential productivity gains are being passed by. Newer technology has enabled these machines to handle far more applications.
Hard turning can be a cost effective alternative for shops looking to streamline part processing.
