Cell-Con to Roll Out New Generation HMC
for Production

The new horizontal spindle H-15 Series 06A Machining Center from Cellular Concepts debuts in Booth A-8369 at IMTS 2000. Designed to be a benchmark for production-oriented machining centers, the Series 06 is heavier, cleaner, tougher and loaded with new features from the base to the CNC. The 3-axis Series 06A is simple to install, ecologically friendly, and beefy enough to easily make high-torque cuts with ease. With a base price of less than $100,000, the Series 06 reduces the cost of capital and cost of operation for production job shops while providing the necessary flexibility and machining power without unnecessary features and options.

New features include:
   stiffer system overall, including the rigid new integral base and heavy ribbing, permitting heavier chip loads, higher torque and higher metal removal rates.    dry-floor operation with 1-piece guarding, including closed top, illuminated work area and heavy-duty, coolant-tight door system.
   3-point leveling eliminates the need for expensive anchoring or foundations
   Quick evacuation of all types of chips from stringy steel to fine iron

The Cell-Con® Model H-15 machining centers feature a traveling column design with a 24" x 29" table. Axis travels are 24" (X), 21" (Y), and 18" (Z). Positioning accuracy is ±.0001". The 6 or 12 tool ATC, with chip-to-chip time under 8 seconds, is engineered for high duty cycles and designed for low maintenance. Standard spindle speed ranges are 0-2000, 3000, or 6000 RPM; or users can choose the optional 8000 RPM range.

The H-15 can be provided as stand alone machining center, as a Duplex version with two opposed units with a single table; or as a pallet index machining center with integrated 180-degree bi-directional pallet type index table with 21.5"X17" surface. The H-15 is ideal for machining cell applications due to its compact, ergonomic design.

From high and medium production metal cutting manufacturers, to small job shops with short runs, the Cell-Con® H-15 Horizontal Machining Center has found many suitable applications. Customer base consists of metalworking shops in automotive, marine, aerospace, appliance, and general manufacturing segments. Users can be up and running quickly with the machine of their choice. That translates into more production per employee per year at lower cost.
