This machine is available in two versions: the HDL2600-SD and HDL2600-HD. These are extra large capacity ultra-precision machining systems used for single point diamond turning advanced optical surfaces along the diameter of large generation drums. This machine accepts drums up to 650mm diameter and 3100mm long (between chuck faces) with a weight capacity of 1800 Kg (3000 Kg on HD version). Maximum optical cutting zone length is 2600mm.
The machine was developed with the latest "precision engineered" designs and components, including high stiffness hydrostatic oil bearing slide ways, programmable CNC controlled W-axis (tailstock) with integrated “Nanolock” braking system, state-of-the-art linear motor drives, and exclusive oil hydrostatic head and tailstock spindles; with liquid cooling for increased thermal stability. The “Nanolock” hydraulic braking system provides maximum tailstock rigidity during diamond turning and facilitates both flexible & rapid machine set-ups.
