Horizontal Machining Centers (HMCs) are the machine of choice for fast and low-cost processing of parts that can be mounted on multi-sided fixtures. Starting with the small FA450-III (with a 23.6-inch pallet), each model varies in size and features to offer the most productive combination for different materials, part sizes, or production runs. Toyoda’s largest machining center, FA1050, accomodates parts exceeding five feet in height and/or diameter. Most models are available with high speed or high-torque spindle options, tool magazines with up to 326 pockets, and fourth (4th) or fifth (5th) axis tables.
Toyoda’s S-Series horizontal machining centers offer high speeds, maximum rigidity and enhanced productivity. Standard machines or machining cells can be flexibly configured to suit your manufacturing environment. Toyoda’s low-friction linear guides use roller bearings. This design provides twice the rigidity and three times the vibration-dampening performance of traditional ball bearings.
Toyoda’s R-Series HMCs are powerful, precision machines. With many options to choose from, the R-Series boxway machines are suitable for applications requiring heavy material removal. The R-Series boxway slide is an incomparable work of skilled craftsmanship, each guideway is perfectly handscrapped for accuracy. This design combined with dual ballscrews in each axis; give the R-Series high rates of acceleration without sacrificing rigidity.
The SX-Series of horizontal machining centers bridge the gap between boxway and high speed roller bearing HMCs for customers machining a wide range of materials, or who want to achieve faster cycle times machining steel. The high-performance spindle is supported by dual ballscrews and motors on the Y axis, giving the customer rapid acceleration and constant accuracy. Dual Z-axis ballscrews and drives share the load of the table and part.
The Toyoda FMS/FPA (Flexible Metalcutting System/Flexible Pallet Automation) allows you to expand as your business grows. Automating the metalcutting process can bring production to a whole new level of profitability. Running multiple machines from a central PC allow for automating production scheduling, cutting set-up times and reducing labor costs. Toyoda software and hardware can easily be upgraded or expanded at any time.
