Hartford Tornado HCMC series

The TORNADO HCMC series of HARTFORD meets a wide range of machining requirements thanks to the technological solutions adopted and the various configurations that can be obtained.

The complete range is available in 9 models (from 1,100 to 3,000 mm travel) to cover the various application requirements. In particular, the structural solidity of the table and of the spindle line make the TORNADO HCMC series extremely effective both in general mechanical applications characterised by high stock removal and in applications typical of mould and die makers, with finishing and superfinishing on various types of steel, from the hardest to the most alloyed.

The bed, made of stabilised Meehanite cast iron, is equipped with four integral prismatic guides of large dimensions, induction hardened and ground. The four guides on the bed ensure uniform weight distribution, complete immobility of the workpiece, smooth movements resulting in longer machine life and superior cutting capabilities.

The structural rigidity of the bed enables a high capacity for absorbing vibrations and absolute machining precision. The cast iron carriage is amply dimensioned to support and guide the work table throughout the working travel.

The dimensions easily allow the application of fourth and fifth axis tables or special clamping equipment. The Meehanite cast iron column with box-type structure has a wide support base. It is equipped with generously dimensioned flat guides, which ensure high spindle head stability and a high damping factor for vibrations generated by machining.

The spindle head is a monolithic structure, made of special cast iron, and is mechanically counterweighted to ensure high static stability and kinematic dynamism to state changes.
