• 5 AXIS Machining Centres
    • AXseries

      The AX 5 Axis Machining Centre have a traditional trunnion style rotary table with 4 different sizes available within the range. The AX range comes with quality, accuracy and reliability as standard.

      The AX range is equipped with hollow ball screws incorporating through ball screw cooling to ensure accuracy and repeatability on machining cycles. The range also benefits from an innovative pneumatic counter balance system that is designed reduce vibration in the Z axis movement, resulting in high surface finishes.

      As with all Pinnacle machines the AX 5 Axis machining centre is designed with oversized castings, ball screws and guideways to ensure the rigidity of the machine, as a result you can expect a Pinnacle machine to provide exceptional accuracy and reliability for many years.

      The Spindle is available in a number of configurations allowing the user to specify a variant which is best suited to their particular machining application. Options include both built in spindle and direct drive with speeds ranging between 10,000 Rpm and 24,000 Rpm. The spindle is available as BT40 or HSK63.

      All of the spindles are equipped with spindle oil coolers to help them perform at their best and maintain accuracy regardless of the machining cycle.

      The range is available with a choice of different sized tool magazines ranging from 24 tools up to 40 tools.

You can select from a range of control systems to suit your requirements, as standard the machines are supplied with the latest Heidenhan TNC640 control system, however Siemens and Fanuc control systems are also available on the BX700 and BX500 Rotating Swivel Head Milling Machines

Features of the BX700 5 Axis Machines

  • Powerful 5 axis machining centre
  • Incredible accuracy
  • Optional turning function
  • Fast and contour accurate motion guide
  • High-quality surface finishing
  • Improved machining time

BX700, BX700DD, BX700T

High precision 5 axis machining centre with rotating spindle head, the range also benefits from a direct drive motor on the rotary table, helping to increase productivity from this market leading machine.

Swivel Spindle Head

B Axis Swivel Milling Head

Hi-Speed, Hi-Power, Hi-Torque, Built-in Spindle 15000 rpm, swivels ±120°

Unique B Axis Design

The transmission mechanism of B axis for model BX700DD incorporates a servo motor direct drive, which offers exceptional accuracy. In addition to the smooth and powerful torque, the direct drive system features higher rotational speed, improved servo response times, zero backlash, and outstanding dynamic accuracy for the optimum workpiece surface finish.

Advanced Cooling System

The external cooling system efficiently minimises the structural thermo deformation and further improves accuracy.  The cooling system also assists to ensure the output torque is stable as the temperature is constantly kept in a low and consistent level.

Incredible Accuracy

The B axis shaft is fitted with and angular positional encoder to improve positioning accuracy of the B axis.

The Integrated direct drive motor of the B and C axis increases the overall machine accuracy as well as ensuring the machine is highly efficient throughout all movements.

BX Machining Bed

By upgrading to the Pinnacle BX Machines you can improve your machine cutting time due to its ability to machine so many different angles without changing the set up.

Cost effective and highly reliable 5 Axis Machining.

BX700 is high speed, high accuracy and equipped with Heidenhain TNC640 control systems to offer simultaneous 5-axis Machining. Equipped with a  15000rpm built-in spindle and B-axis swivel head ±120°, as well as a C-axis Ø630mm rotary table (Built-in DD C-axis) to optimise machining space and allows complex workpieces to be finished in just one setup and reduces cycle time.
