GROB Systems, a global leader in the development of manufacturing systems and machine tools, announces its new Access Series 5-axis machining centers, which promise the best machining quality for individual and series production while offering cost-conscious entry into GROB technology.
The Access Series machines, featuring basic models G350a and G550a, are backed by GROB’s more than 90 years of experience with machine tools and are built in the USA. With a short payback time, the Access Series delivers the best machining quality and is rated for optimized reliability, high productivity and modular expandability with automation solutions.
The G350a and G550a offer almost unlimited application possibilities in milling applications and remain flexibly adaptable to suit every requirement. They meet the broadest range of part requirements with the ability to machine the largest workpiece with the longest tool at the same time.
Both models also include a rigid horizontal spindle axis optimally positioned close to the operating point with guaranteed maximum accuracy and precision. This combination, with the unique upside-down machining, allows an excellent chip fall and reduces the heat load in the component. The models offer the longest z-axis stroke and largest swivel range on the market for rotary axis. The linear guidance system of the reference axis can be optionally equipped with a temperature-controlled cooling function, and a wide-opening work area door ensures safe access and ergonomic working, with maximum machine safety. Plus, large safety glass provides a perfect view of the machining process. The Access Series is compatible with SIEMENS and HEIDENHAIN control systems.
Typical applications for the Access Series include 3+2-axis machining and volume cutting (structural components) in the aerospace, automotive, pump and valve, mechanical engineering, and job shop industries.
