After aluminum has been extruded, it is sent to the machining center to be cut, sawed, and processed. Our aluminum fabrication capabilities include precision sawing, horizontal machining and manufacturing, long length CNC machining, 5-axis CNC machining, as well as high speed vertical machining capability.
Our focus today is our HMC 500 horizontal machining center. Built for speed and faster cycle times, this machine features a 500mm pallet designed to accommodate some of the largest work pieces in its class. The fully-loaded HMC 500 works with 50 horsepower and a lightweight column featuring a rigid stepped X axis rail design. This column enables a rapid feed rate of 63 meters per minute, 2480 inches per minute, with acceleration of 1G.
Delivering added time & cost savings, the OKK HMC 500 Horizontal Machining Center helps Taber continue to provide customized, versatile, high-quality market-oriented products that can satisfy a wide range of applications.
