Quill-Spindle Horizontal Boring Machine

The Wele HB1620 horizontal boring machine (some safety guarding not shown)

JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corporation's newest addition to the boring line-up, the Wele HB1620 horizontal boring machine, combines structural stability and geometric precision for enhanced performance reliability - enabling shop floors to take on the complex demands of heavy cutting production.

"From the base to the spindle to the technology, our Wele HB Series integrates all of the carefully engineered components that you would expect to see within the design and construction of any WELE product," said Randolph Ragnini, Director of Sales at Toyoda. "What makes this machine stand above its competitors is the hydro-static B-axis table, allowing the machine to smoothly and optimally handle excessive table loads, capacities in excess of over 44,000 lbs., an absolute necessity for most boring mill users."

A combination of cast iron and stress relieved fabricated support structures have been designed for an optimum balance of thermal stability and rigidity during cutting. The machine also features heavy duty linear roller guides and standard linear scale feedback in all axes with a patented backlash-free mechanism on the B-axis.

The HB series was designed with the machinist in mind, offering a fully loaded FANUC 0iM control, CE safety guarding and direct ATC access. Together, all of these features enhance operator functionality and shop floor ergonomics - setting the pace for highly productive shop floor.

The HB Series comes standard with a 2,500 RPM geared spindle with 2,177 Nm or 1,606 ft-lbs. torque, and a 130 mm diameter quill that extends to 700 mm or more than 27" for large part line boring and deep cavity jobs. Utilizing a BIG Plus spindle (CAT #50 taper) allows for critical tool applications on an as needed basis. The optional 60 tool magazine also extends the facility of the machine for a variety of workpieces.
