New milling solution for production of small, precise parts

Where workshop floor space and machine installation weight are considerations, producers of small and precise parts need look no further than GF AgieCharmilles’ new Mikron HSM 200 LP and HSM 200U LP Milling machines.

With three and five axes respectively, the machines are candidates for awards in the areas of compact footprint, built-in flexibility for dedicated automation requirements and production-proof axis design and chip management solutions.

The HSM 200 LP and HSM 200U LP perfectly meet high-speed Milling needs in production environments where location and available floor space limit machine installation weight and dimensions. Second-floor dental labs and watchmaking operations are two such examples. Moreover, these machines are perfectly aligned with the Milling needs of producers of smaller electrodes and higher-volume precision parts.

To be installed everywhere
Dimensions of the three-axis HSM 200 LP and five-axis HSM 200U LP during commissioning can be as little as 860 x 2,000 mm (width x height) with a weight of approximately 3,600 kg. The tables feature not only a standard automated chuck but can be equipped with up to four additional media channels to operate automated individual part clamping systems on top of a palletized standard interface. With this functionality, production of even small to medium batch sizes with short cycle times may be tackled in unattended shifts, 24/7.

Specialised needs
In medical technology, the HSM 200U LP is the new five-axis production machining solution for ceramic dental prostheses as well as implants made of titanium, cobalt-chrome, or a variety of plastic materials. As another example, the HSM 200 LP is an asset to die and mold manufacturers producing hardened tool steel inserts and copper electrodes for light-emitting diodes (LEDs), zoom cameras and microfluidics like lab-on-chip devices, and to makers of parts for watch movements with built-in COCN direct part clamping solutions.
