Horizontal Machining 4‑Axis


Horizontal Machining 4-Axis

High-speed, high production, single table horizontal machining center

Makino’s J-Series Horizontal Machining Centers are designed to be the core of high volume, flexible CNC based machining lines.  They feature the combination of a stacked axis design and single table configuration, while promoting highly efficient chip removal of transportation out of the machining area.  Featuring flexibility with respect to machine strokes and configurations, the J-Series HMC’s can be tailored during the pre-sales engineering phase of a program to precisely meet the needs of the program they are being integrated into, offering unmatched efficiencies related to floorspace and infrastructure requirements.

Technical Specifications

The J4 is designed specifically around machining of medium size production workpieces, with a compact floor layout yet generous axes stroke options.  The machine structure optimizes rigidity, allowing for high metal removal rates even in ferrous machining applications using the standard spindle’s peak 250 N-m of torque. 

Please contact your Makino representative to learn more about this machine, which can be tailored to your specific high-volume machining system needs.
