Automatic milling generally leads to more precise results than manual milling and is widely used in industry.
HSM-MODAL® can perform 5-axis milling. This means that customers can easily and directly produce objects with curved or complex, uneven surfaces themselves using the machine. As a result, mould construction in shipbuilding and foundries, for example, is simplified considerably. The customer can achieve a milling accuracy of ± 0.2 mm regarding mould preciseness with HSM-MODAL®. This accuracy is achieved through several machining procedures, as is usually the case with automatic milling, and includes the basic milling procedures “roughing” and “finishing”.
HSM-MODAL® is distinguished by the fact that it can achieve operating speeds of up to 150 m/min. This speed can also be employed as milling speed. The milling speed obtainable in practice depends on different influencing factors such as the composition of the material to be milled, the rotational speed of the spindle, the tools used and the desired surface quality.
Independent of these factors, and in contrast to comparable 5-axis machines presently available, with HSM-MODAL® the customer can, however, mill at the maximum cutting speeds recommended by the material manufacturers for different surface qualities.
