Hardinge Group is maximising its presence at the forthcoming MACH 2012 exhibition with two stands of its own and a further machine demonstrating workholding equipment on a suppliers stand.
In total there will be eleven Hardinge Group machines in fully operational mode at the exhibition with the main stand - 5438 in Hall 5 - featuring four Hardinge machine tools and four grinding centres from Kellenberger and Jones & Shipman. In addition this stand will also showcase a Biglia multi-axis turning machine and a Quaser 5-axis milling centre, Hardinge UK Ltd being the main distributor for these brands in the UK.
A second stand - 4021 in Hall 4 - is dedicated to Hardinge workholding products and promoting the recently launched ‘ShopHardinge’ concept.
The Hardinge machine tools being featured are an XR1000 5 axis machining centre, a T42 Super Precision T series turning centre, a Bridgeport GX600 VMC and a GS150 CNC lathe. In addition, there is a Biglia Smart Turn ‘S’ multi-axis turning machine and for the first time in the UK the Quaser MF400C, a 5 axis multi-face machine which features both tilting and rotary axes.
“The theme of the stand is to show visitors the breadth of machine tools on offer from the Hardinge Group in the UK,” explains Martin Doyle, Hardinge UK sales and marketing manager. “A machine such as the GS150 is a highly adaptable ‘all rounder’ in the machine shop whereas the XR 5 axis machine, the T42 Super Precision and the Biglia Smart Turn and Quaser machining centres are all high end, high precision models.”
The workholding stand in Hall 4 will be featuring for the first time a Hardinge designed and manufactured gear driven 5th axis table. Having a dedicated colletted spindle, this unit will be particularly suited for use with Hardinge 5C tooling with benefits being better clamping options amongst others.
Visitors will also be able to see live demonstrations of how to access the ShopHardinge on-line store with its 65,000 product inventory.
Finally, on stand - 4005 in Hall 4 - a Bridgeport GX480 VMC will be demonstrating Micron Workholding products. The 480 machine has established a reputation for outperforming the average machine in its class and offers fast rapid rates, high axis and spindle acceleration/deceleration, and a powerful Fanuc control.
