The Ultrix machining centres turn workpieces both horizontally and vertically combined with the tilting motion of axis. The turning bar with a 150mm vertical travel and positioned to the side of the vertical RAM it is possible to turn workpieces with heights greater than travel Z. This solution allows for, amongst other important features, to use very short tools instead of the conventional longer tools which are prone to abrupt jerks when machining and the use of vibration damping bars is limited just to intensive turning operations when machining very hard and resistant materials. The Ultrix range of machining centres can be fitted with a turning/milling spindle which allows varying tool positions and facilitates changeover from vertical to horizontal turning operations on the same workpiece optimising, in this way, both machining operations and tool consumption. With this range of machining centres it is possible to turn in diagonal workpieces up to 1000mm.
The Ultrix range can be supplied with tool magazines for holding 30-60-150 or more tools. It is possible to choose from a wide range of turning and milling spindles. Milling spindles with S6/S1 rating, 55/48 kW (M300/14) torque 300Nm in S1, speed 14,000 rpm - 40/40 kW (M100/18) S1 torque 100Nm and speed 18,000 rpm or 28/20 kW (M38/28) S1 torque 38 Nm and speed 28,000 rpm or 55/40 kW (M16/40) S1 torque 16 Nm and speed 40,000 rpm. In S1 the milling spindles have an output power of 30 kW with a torque up to 2000 NM and speeds reaching 1000 rpm.
