The HM5L is a 5 Axis CNC Machine suitable for Milling of Aluminum Aerospace Tooling and Fixtures, Epoxy Tooling, Foam and Clay Automobile Design Studio Models.
A huge Gantry CNC Mill may at first seem like the the ideal machine for milling car models, but it is not a suitable solution for many facilities with low ceiling heights. Horizontal Arm Machines such as the TARUS OPTIMUM are better suited to milling car models compared to a Vertical Spindle Gantry machine; consider the detail at the lower portions of a car model and the long reach required to mill that model with a Gantry. An open Horizontal Arm machine is a much nicer tool for a Modeler who must pack clay or modeling paste onto a model to make modifications compared to the confinement of a Gantry Machine.
Linear Motor Direct Drive provides the highest performance and reliability combined with the latest Digital CNC Systems including the TARUS Aldebaran, Heidenhain, Siemens, Fidia and FANUC. Surface Quality and Accuracy are outstanding and the Linear Motor Direct Drive are Backlash and Wear-Free.
The 2 Axis Milling Head allows quick and easy cutter angle adjustment with RTCP, and also full 5 axis CNC milling if desired. A powerful liquid cooled HSK63 spindle quietly operates at up to 15,000 rpm with 26 kw of power.
