The a61nx-5E five-axis horizontal machining center is manufactured specifically for high-efficiency aluminum machining of small to mid-size, complex five-axis components and monolithic aerospace parts.
The design is based on nx-series machines.
Its unique slanted pallet changer configuration integrates the chip shedding capability of a horizontal spindle with lay-down part loading on the pallet station.
The a61nx-5E enhances the capacity through the inclusion of twin direct-drive rotary axes for “one-and-done” efficiency. The a61nx-5E emphasizes an original automatic pallet changer design, which directly loads the pallet into the 5th axis rotary table. At the same time, these features provides a flat surface for ergonomic work piece loading.
Axis options for the a61nx-5E extend from the standard 14,000 RPM high-power spindle, to a unique 24,000 RPM, 80kW (duty rated) spindle for aluminum machining in aerospace. This under-race-lubricated, core-cooled axis is suitable for metal removal rates of up to 300 cubic inches per minute in the machining of aluminum. The a61nx-5E led the elimination of the metal and high capacity of Makino’s MAG machines to a smaller platform. Thus, enabling aerospace construction to “right size” their parts production.
