Product Information

The IM-machine series was born to meet today’s manufacturing signified by ever more closely geometric part tolerances, part and component complexity, and faster production times within the industry. The machines processing from below transforms the way we will think about generic 5-axis and component machining. So, let us think inverted.

The IM-8T combines the inverted machines’ speed and precision with mill-turn flexibility – taking machining performance to a new level with higher productivity, higher accuracy, and less installation time. Inverted mill-turn machining and an optimal chip handling system meets challenging machining processes and helps to achieve world-class quality, with shortened production times, leading to decreased overall manufacturing costs.

The inverted single spindle machine with mill-turn capability can perform multiple operations simultaneously, work very quickly and perform complex operations faster with greater accuracy. With a patented design, a single spindle with up to 200 hp (150 kW) working from below, this high-speed inverted machining center with mill-turn sets a new standard for 5-axes machining. Extreme fast cut-to-cut times make the machine suitable for industries characterized by large volumes, quick lead times, and high complexity. A stable machine with a cast iron base around the structure makes the machine extremely rigid, enabling the tool to work with extreme precision. Working inverted means easier chip evacuation with less consumption of coolant. The gravity makes the chips fall with a natural flow from the work piece and the working area. The stability, together with the excellent optimized chip handling system, yells for higher performance.

Inverted machining center with mill-turn capability

The trunnion table with turning is available in size 31″ (800 mm), allowing for a maximum part size of 28″ (700 mm) in height and an inference diameter of 47″ (1,200 mm). The IM machine series are designed for optimal use of floor space where the design makes it possible to place the machines side by side. The chip conveyor is placed in the back of the machines with easy access for chip handling. Loading of material and unloading of parts takes place either manually from the front or by a pallet system or with overhead loading. In this way, the machines can efficiently be used for high productivity in your production lines. Options for complete production cell, pallet system, robot loading, and overhead loading are available.
