D27 Milling Head Spindle Combination

Under the theme of “Technology Leader with Perfect Rotation,” FISCHER will showcase its D27 milling head paired with their newest technology for high-volume material removal in their MFW-2714/20 HSK-100 at IMTS 2022, Booth 237470, in Chicago, September 12-17.  With 80 years of experience in high-performance machine tool spindle design, in-house manufacturing and best-in-class repair services, the company will present this new design, a combination milling head-milling spindle that provides maximum stability and precision for aerospace and other 5-axis machining operations.

Features on this advanced milling head and spindle combination include:

Perfect Rotation - Powerful, heavy milling while maintaining accuracy and repeatability requires perfect rotation in not only the spindle but also the milling head.  This is achieved by precisely calculated mono-block structures made of high-grade cast iron paired with two cross-roller bearings for A-axis and YRT for C-axis provide the highest load capacity to handle the cutting forces in all directions during power milling.

Technology Leader – Always developing and implementing industry leading technology with customer focus is a FISCHER operating principle. Highest power, highest speed, highest precision to provide our customers with the leading edge.

New Milling Head - The FISCHER D27 milling head is specifically designed for the most powerful, as well as long-tooled, milling applications. With the high power and torque output, the D27 milling head still maintains its sleek symmetric outline while being dynamic and robust. To ensure accuracy and repeatability, the unit incorporates direct optical encoders, dual motors and dual clamps on the A-axis. The D27 milling head is intentionally designed to utilize the maximum power and torque capacity of our FISCHER 275mm spindles for the highest chip removal rate.

New Spindle Design - Paired with the D27 is the spindle type MFW-2714/20 HSK-100. FISCHER is raising the bar for highest volume chip removal.  The unit offers machine builders and end users a robust HSK-100 interface, max speed of 20,000 rpm and an S1 continuous power rating of 200kW.

Related Glossary Terms

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • milling

    milling

    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.
