Newest Toyoda Best-In-Class 5-Axis Machine for a 630 mm Platform Performs Complex Parts Production and Multi-Surface Processing in One Setup

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL (June 19, 2019) – JTEKT Machinery Americas Corporation is excited to introduce its’ newest addition to the 5-axis family, the FH630SX-i 5-Axis Horizontal Machining Center. The machine combines best-in-class performance, high torque and simultaneous 5-axis machining – achieving complex part machining and multi-surface processing all within one setup.

“From the highly rigid platform to the flexible swivel spindle, our newest 5-axis addition combines the stability and versatility that shop owners look for and need with complex cutting production”, says Graham Roeder, National Product Manager at JTEKT Machinery. “By taking full advantage of the performance reliability and machining scope of the JTEKT Machinery FH630SX-i 5-axis, shops have the ability to dramatically increase profit opportunities, while keeping costs, time, fixture preparation, and waste at a minimum - reducing the risk of improper setup. Additionally, combining the FH630SX-i 5-axis with 4-axis machines on a shared RGV system allows shops to increase performance – enhancing autonomous production.”

JTEKT Machinery built upon its renowned highly rigid spindle design, adopting a tilting swivel motion to enable exceptionally efficient processing of large workpieces. For increased flexibility, the machine is capable of travelling 12” past the pallet centerline in the vertical orientation. Whether cutting aluminum or titanium, the FH630SX-i 5-axis features spindle speed flexibility due to the interchangeable spindle cartridge supporting the special-purpose optional 8,000 RPM, 107 HP high-torque spindle, or standard 15,000 RPM, 74 HP high-speed spindle. Both spindles are designed with JTEKT Machinery's patented replaceable taper for easy repairs and high maintainability. The tilting spindle also comes with a robust C-axis drive train and an enlarged C-axis swivel range of 230 degrees for better workpiece access. Furthermore, the base, which supports the spindle, minimizes displacement from external forces that affect processing accuracy; enduring huge cutting forces in addition to the inertial force of feeding acceleration/deceleration.
