Process: 5-Axis


The exceptionally productive 5-axis HCR-5000 Horizontal Machining Center provides industries ranging from aerospace, medical, semiconductor/high-tech with numerous technological innovations to improve small to mid-sized aluminum component to market.

In addition to its standard 12,000-rpm spindle, the HCR-5000 offers several high-speed spindle options up to 30,000 rpm, all of which feature integral spindle/motors. The machine also has ballscrew core cooling to minimize thermal growth and achieve higher accuracy. A 40-tool Auto Tool Changer (ATC), with optional magazines up to 160-tool capacity, further boosts productivity with a chip-to-chip tool change time of only 2.8 seconds. Plus, automation options such as 2-pallet changers or full PALLETECH systems can easily minimize non-cut time and improve overall process efficiency.


  • Integral spindle/motor design minimizes vibration

  • Linear roller guides on X, Y and Z axes
  • X-, Y- and Z-axis ballscrew core cooling for machine stability
  • Base X-axis construction and high-rigidity bed ensure high-accuracy positioning
  • Center trough with chip conveyor for fast and efficient chip evacuation
  • Tilt/rotary table for 0.0001-degree increment positioning
  • Automatic tool changer (ATC) options to 160 tools
  • 2.8 second chip-to-chip ATC time
  • Automatic two pallet changer (2PC), Multi-pallet Pool (MPP) and PALLETECH are all available
  • Standard large-capacity coolant tank
