Burkhardt + Weber MCX industrial machine

The MCT Range

The six MCT machining centres are designed specifically for multitasking applications. Milling, drilling, turning – all on one machining centre with high power density thanks to NC-controlled tilting spindle, strong turning tool holder and fast-turning torque table. Integrated horizontal and vertical turning replaces use of multiple additional lathes.

Machining Unit

Machining Unit Made by BURKHARDT+WEBER
Powerful and generously-supported horizontal/vertical head
To accommodate the optional turning tool holder, the swivel head is equipped as standard with a sturdy four-point clamping system
Assembled by highly experienced employees
Strictest quality controls
24-hour load spectrum on BW test stand with programmable counter-loads
NC-controlled as HVP positioning head or as a fully-fledged 5-axis HVC swivel head
Each with 8,000 rpm an up to 42 kW / 2,000 Nm thanks to two gear stages
Swivel time 2 s at full speed
Turning tools are automatically loaded from the tool magazine into a special turning tool holder
Turning tool holder with quadruple hydraulic clamping on the spindle unit
The vertical precision spindle bearing arrangement bears no stress whatsoever during turning. All forces are absorbed by the 4 hydraulic clamping sleeves, which also feature large support spacing for reliable absorption of all lateral forces

Machine Table and Pallets

Machine Table and Pallets Fast-turning, high-performance milling/turning tables
Speeds up to 650 rpm
Loads of up to 7,000 kg, 4,000kg in turning mode
Automatic balancing cycle with unbalance monitoring during turning operation
Display of the position and weight of balancing aids
Reliable disconnection in milling mode by means of a generously dimensioned brake disc, no rotating of the position when hydraulic brake pressure is applied
High-performance, all-round cooling of the torque motor from 4 sides to prevent heat growth in one direction. Special pallet surfaces are possible, because they are produced in-house
Optional hydraulic couplings. Turning is performed contact-free and consequently virtually wear-free. Multiple pressure levels possible
Quality and functional acceptance testing on specially designed table testing station at BW
