HCN-6800 NEO

Process: Horizontal


The next generation of the HCN-6800 Horizontal Machining Center has arrived with the HCN-6800 NEO. Along with it comes unsurpassed performance, precision, reliability and production value. This configuration provides the same world-class horizontal machining performance in a redesigned, space-saving enclosure and includes numerous improvements that allow it to handle high volumes of large, heavy parts with even greater ease.

Improvements throughout the machine – from an expanded set of spindle and automation options to new innovations for ATC shutters, tool magazines and pallet-changer doors – help save time on every cycle. Greater tool length and moment, new AI-powered software and larger Y-axis LM guides all contribute to a level of performance that enables shops to manufacture more parts of even higher quality.


  • Improved standard 10,000 rpm spindle and newly developed optional high-torque and high-speed spindles.
  • Reduced next-tool wait times.
  • Available with standard 43-tool drum-type magazine and optional 60-tool drum-type or 80, 120 or 160-tool chain-type magazines.
  • Optional high-torque direct-drive motor table yields best-in-class indexing time with high-accuracy rotary scale positioning.
  • Integrates with a wide range of optional automation systems, from integrated 2-pallet changer to PALLETECH, for lights-out operations.
  • Faster, more accurate thermal displacement minimization with machine learning using Ai Thermal Shield.
