Designed for medical component milling, the HSM 200U LP machining center from GF Machining Solutions is available in three- and five-axis (full simultaneous) versions bringing speed, efficiency and precision to the machining of small, complex components such as stainless steel denture bars and orthopedic implants.

Its compact size allows the machine to fit into facilities such as dental labs and other shops where floor space is at a premium, the company says.

The machine is said to generate part surface finishes as fine as 0.05 µm Ra thanks to linear motor technology in its main machine axes and optimized direct-drive motors for the B and C axes. The 50,000-rpm, 11.4-hp Step-Tec spindle also contributes to precise part details and excellent surface finishes, according to the company.

Paired with optional Mikron pallet magazines with System 3R and Erowa interfaces, the HSM 200U LP can provide unattended 24/7 machining for increasing the output of existing workforces. 

A Heidenhain iTNC 530 control system and smart machining modules provide advanced machine monitoring. The system automatically checks and evaluates tools and workpieces, inspects tools for breakage, and performs measurements of the workpiece. The smart machine modules automatically monitor spindle vibration, calibrate machine geometry and transmit process status messages to an operator’s cell phone.

To avoid inconsistent loading of small tools and 3D geometry errors caused by inaccurately measuring those tools, the HSM 200U LP features Intelligent Tool Measurement (ITM). ITM records the complete tool tip up to a diameter of 0.47″ on image sensors. Special software cleans and measures the recorded tool geometry for repeatability in the micron range.
