MILLFORCE-Series

MILLFORCE-Series Dynamic machining with a wide range of applications

The travelling column mills of the MILLFORCE-Series combine fast and exact positioning of the milling heads with excellent stability. Designed for the machining of medium-sized workpieces, they are characterized by outstanding flexibility in the machining of single parts and small or medium-sized series.

The available milling units can be changed automatically with a pick-up station. Thanks to this optional pick-up station, the application options of the travelling column mill are expanded considerably.

The advantages at a glance

Designed for heavy roughing as well as precise finishing, the machines of the MILLFORCE-series achieve the highest accuracies. With the MILLFORCE 1 and 2, this is provided by compact precision linear guidance in all axes. The MILLFORCE 3 is also available with hydrostatic guideways as an alternative.

A high spindle speed range, rapid traverses and acceleration of the axes allow for dynamic machining of the workpiece. Additional equipment permits the perfect adaption of the travelling column mills of the MILLFORCE-series to the requirements in your production facility.

The machine bed of the MILLFORCE-series machines is a a strongly ribbed welded steel costruction that reliably damps vibrations, which is the basis for precise machining results. High positioning accuracy and excellent stability are guaranteed by the compact roller guidance with zero backlash in all linear axes.

Milling heads and tools are always precisely positioned – this is ensured by the dynamic compensation of droop and and tilt and by the stiff box column, which is optimized by FEM and mode analyses.

The MILLFORCE 3 is based on the well-proven technology of the UnionChemnitz PR-series. The machines can be provided with either compact roller or hydrostatic guidance.

The machines of the MILLFORCE-series can be adapted to your application by a comprehensive range of options:

Automatic tool changer

The tools are changed via magazines with a minimum of 40 pockets.

Pick-up station

The aggregates are changed automatically.

CNC controls

Four variants are available: Siemens 840 D sl, Heidenhain iTNC 530, Heidenhain TNC 640 and Fanuc 31iB.

Process monitoring

To optimize the manufacturing processes, the following options are available: automatic tool measuring system with a wireless touch probe, laser measuring bridges, torque and collision monitoring, operating data acquisition and remote diagnostics via telephone service.

Comprehensive range of accessories

You can choose from a wide range of milling attachments, as well as rotary, traversing and tilting tables.
