HBZ® horizontal machining centres

Outstanding application diversity and highest chip removal rates. For excellent productivity combined with small footprint

Application diversity

With its HBZ Trunnion, HBZ CompactCell and HBZ AeroCell series, Handtmann offers a product line that stands for short machining times as well as optimum machining strategies and quality. The machines in the HBZ CompactCell and HBZ AeroCell series are specialists for cutting-intensive 5-axis machining of aluminium and cover a wide range of applications for small parts with an interference contour of less than 1,000 mm up to workpiece sizes with a length of 7,000 mm and width of 3,000 mm. The HBZ Trunnion series additionally extends the material spectrum by hard-to-machine materials such as steel and titanium.

Ideal machining conditions

The intrinsically rigid machine design ensures stable and precise machining even at high travel speeds and accelerations. The horizontal spindle position guarantees optimum chip and coolant management without recutting.

Optimum ergonomics

HBZ horizontal machining centres ensure optimum user friendliness thanks to their intelligent design: loading and unloading take place ergonomically in a horizontal table position. Good visibility into the workzone is ensured during the machining process.

ONE PRODUCT LINE - THREE SERIES

The HBZ product line comprises three machine series with different technological highlights and sizes. This allows us to cover a wide range of applications in 5-axis cutting and to provide the optimum machine for your application.

Application example for HBZ Trunnion 80: Aluminium hinge (aerospace)

HBZ Trunnion 120 - Ergonomic machine concept

In addition to good ergonomic design for the machine operator, the HBZ Trunnion 120 has a compact footprint of only approx. 7,400 x 8,900 x 3,800 mm.

HBZ CompactCell 5-axis horizontal machining centre

5-axis HBZ CompactCell horizontal machining centre. Transport of the pallet into the workzone, which was set up ergonomically at a comfortable working height.

HBZ CompactCell – 5-axis aluminium machining

5-axis aluminium machining with the HBZ CompactCell horizontal machining centre: dynamic, powerful and precise.

HBZ CompactCell – Ergonomics

Perfect view into the workzone and ergonomic operation of the control panel on the 5-axis HBZ CompactCell horizontal machining centre.

HBZ CompactCell – Application example for aluminium

HBZ CompactCell application example: Aluminium wing panel (aerospace)

HBZ CompactCell – Automation with pallet rack

HBZ CompactCell with pallet automation, integrated pallet rack and set-up station for set-up parallel to production. An example of complex process automation.

HBZ AeroCell – Integrated pallet changing system

HBZ AeroCell: Using the swivel unit of the integrated pallet changing system, the pallet with the raw part to be machined is docked back-to-back on the pallet which is currently in the workzone. After an automatic pallet change, where both pallets are rotated together, the new pallet is moved into the workzone and the next machining operation can start. The pallet with the finished part is moved to the horizontal position for unloading and renewed set-up parallel to machining.

HBZ AeroCell – Workzone

HBZ AeroCell horizontal machining centre with optimum chip and coolant management thanks to horizontal spindle position.

HBZ AeroCell – Application example for aluminium

HBZ AeroCell application example: Aluminium wing rib section (aerospace)

HBZ AeroCell – Ergonomic machine operation

In spite of the generously dimensioned workzone of the HBZ AeroCell, there is always an excellent view of the workpiece and cutting process, and operator friendliness is guaranteed.
