The Hardinge Machine Tools stand at Mach 2010 will combine the latest cell and stand-alone machine-tool technology for turning, milling, grinding and workholding.

With nine machines under power, visitors will be able to realise the benefits of equipment that is able to recoup productivity in each sector of machining and receive company development updates.

Hardinge’s operation now incorporates Hardinge turning and workholding products, Bridgeport vertical and horizontal machining and special grinding centres, Hauser jig grinding, universal ID/OD grinding from Kellenberger, OD grinding from Tschudin, and internal and production grinding from Tripet.

With the addition of Jones and Shipman, the grinding portfolio is further expanded to include cylindrical, surface and universal machines, as well as creepfeed machines.

The compact Hardinge GS51A three-axis production cell has a 10-platen patented modular magazine and colletready spindle to provide precision, high productivity and machine-utilisation capability.

Suited to meet the challenging demands of hard milling and turning with 22kW power and 365Nm of torque, the Hardinge RS 65 MSY turning centre has the added flexibility given by a Y-axis cross-feed to the 12-station turret that services the main and subspindle.

High precision is guaranteed through the use of linear scale positioning, enabling a continuous machining accuracy within 5um.

The five-axis GX 250 AX is a compact VMC that is said to combine the high level of functionality available from Heidenhain iTNC 530 simultaneous control with Heidenhain’s drives and linear scale positioning technology.

The trunnion and rotary table has a component capacity of 250 (D) x 240mm (L).

The machine also has an optional 20,000rev/min high-speed spindle.

A Bridgeport XR 1000 heavy-duty build VMC now features the latest 18,000rev/min HSK A63 spindle development to complement options of high-torque 9,000 and 15,000rev/min spindles.

With 30 tool positions, X-axis travel is 1,020mm with Y and Z travels of 610mm.

Control options are Heidenhain iTNC 530 and Fanuc 18iMB.

The Bridgeport GX 480 480 x 400 x 330mm capacity VMC, developed for the subcontract industry, is upgraded for Mach 2010 with the latest Siemens 828D control system featuring Shopmill graphical programming with simplified tool management.

Setting is through CNC direct keying functions.

Jones and Shipman’s Suprema cylindrical grinding machines can be specified with multiple wheelhead options from plain external straight approach or universal wheelhead with two external and one internal wheel spindles.

Fanuc hardware and touch-screen control ensures fast setup, minimising changeover times.

For toolroom, batch and production environments, the high-precision J and S Techmaster ‘easy’ surface grinders feature surface- and profile-grinding software designed for quick setup.

The J and S range has table capacities from 200 x 500mm to 600 x 1,200mm and a range of dressing and workholding options including indexers and rotary tables.

From Kellenberger, the Kel-Vista CNC cylindrical grinding machine will feature the Kel-Portal automatic loading system.

It is compact, flexible and integrated into the machine to enable changeovers to be accomplished in under 15min.
