Feeler U600 5-axis machining centre now available from TDT

The Feeler U600 5-axis machining centre, which is available in the UK from TDT Technology, offers a patented configuration whereby the machining capacity allows a workpiece diameter larger than its axis travel. Furthermore, the machine offers access to the working area via sliding doors on two sides of its periphery for ease of operation, monitoring and load/unload.

The machine provides X, Y and Z travels of 460 by 520 by 400 mm, respectively. A-axis rotation is from -40 to +110°, with full 360° rotation in the C-axis. Also featured is a 600 mm diameter table that can support workpieces weighing up to 250 kg. The BT40 direct-drive spindle rotates at 10,000 rpm, although a 20,000 rpm built-in spindle is also available.

Rapid traverse rate in the linear axes is 30 m/min, while an arm-type 24-station ATC offers a tool-to-tool change time of 2.5 seconds.
