Horizontal Boring Mills

A Horizontal Boring Mill holds the workpiece stationary on a vertical table whose position can be adjusted. The machine has its work spindle parallel to the ground and work table. Typically there are 3 linear axes in which the tool head and part can move. The main axis that drives the part towards the work spindle is the Z-axis, with a cross-traversing X-axis and a vertically traversing Y-axis. The work spindle is referred to as the C-axis and, if a Rotary Table is incorporated, its centre line is the B-axis.

WFT11 Table Type Horizontal Boring Machine

Horizontal Boring Mill WFT 11 CNC is a smaller version of Fermat Bestseller machine WFT 13 CNC. The ball screw of Y Axis (diameter of 63 mm) a rigid column made of grey cast iron and a powerfull spindle with a diameter of 110 mm guarantees the quality of this machine. The high accuracy of WFT 11 is supported by the use realiable components such as Heidenhain linear scales or a monitoring and stabilizing temperature systems. Moreover the high positioning precision is achieved by two servo´s on the axis that prevent a backlash of the table (part of a standard configuration).

Machine Axes - WFT 11 CNC offers four linear (X,Y,Z a W) and one rotary axis (B). A full servo rotary table option allows  continuous B-axis rotation (contouring) simultaneously with X, Y, Z, or W axes.
