The a81nx is one of the most popular horizontal machining centers from Makino. The uniqueness of this machine relies on two pillars, design of the structure and the spindle.
From one side the robust 3-roller style B-axis table bearings, the oversized roller guides for the linear axes and the slant bed casting design ensure stable cutting throughout the work zone.
From the second side the spindle provides productivity improvements in cutting and non-cutting performance. The flexible 10,000 RPM high torque spindle is ideally suited for heavy roughing of castings and hard metal aerospace applications. The spindle features significant improvements in acceleration and deceleration that reduce rigid tapping times by up to 30%.
Reliability and ergonomics are a81nx design objectives. Proven technologies like single piece X & Z axis way covers and servo driven ATC shutters, ensure that the a81nx continues the Makino tradition of producing HMC’s with the highest levels of reliability.
