Seven machine HD VMC range launched by XYZ Machine Tools

The ongoing development of its machine range continues at XYZ Machine Tools with the announcement of the arrival of its seven machine HD (Heavy-Duty) range of vertical machining centres. These new machines supersede the previous range of box-slideway machines in the XYZ range and compliment the new Linear Rail machines that have been added to its catalogue.

The XYZ HD range will allow maximum metal removal rates thanks to their solid Meehanite cast beds and columns, along with induction hardened, ground and Turcite-coated box slideways. With X-axis travels ranging from 660 mm through to 3000 mm there is a machine in the range to suit a majority of machining applications across a variety of industry sectors. The range starts with the XYZ 660 HD which features increased X and Y travels over its predecessor of 660 mm and 450 mm, yet retains a compact footprint making it ideal for most machine shops. The other machines in the range are the XYZ 800 HD, 1100 HD, 1510 HD, with three ‘super-heavyweight’ machines, the XYZ 2010, 2510 and 3010 HD completing the range.

The four smaller HD machines all feature increased axis travels, as well as increased spindle power where it was deemed necessary. For example, the XYZ 660 now has a 25 kW spindle, an increase of 123 per cent over its predecessor. Spindle speed is also improved by 25 per cent to 10,000 revs/min, with other machines in the range gaining around 66 per cent extra spindle power. As with all machines from XYZ Machine Tools, the HD range is well specified, using the Siemens 828D ShopMill control with 15-inch touch screen fitted as standard, with the control pendant-mounted on several machines in the range for further ease of use. In addition to the standard specification across the range users have a series of options, such as 4th and 5th axis attachments, swarf conveyors and on-machine tool and workpiece probing.

“With our decision to add linear rail machines to our range in 2017 the opportunity to upgrade our HD machines was one that we did not want to miss. This new range sees performance and productivity enhanced, while maintaining the XYZ reputation of value for money. With the HD machines now in place we have a solution for every metalcutting application, from those company’s making their first steps into CNC machining with a ProtoTRAK controlled lathe or mill, through machining and turning centres to the flagship of the XYZ range the UMC-5X Gantry-style five-axis machining centre. Of course, XYZ now extends beyond the world of metalcutting with our partnership with Hewlett Packard and HP Jet Fusion 3D printing technology,” says Nigel Atherton, Managing Director, XYZ Machine Tools.
