Koreas largest independent manufacturer of CNC machine tools, Hwacheon Machine Tool Company, is launching several new machines at EMO 2011 not previously seen in Europe.

A total of 10 machines will be demonstrated under power in Hall 26, Stand D41.

Mike Burke, UK Sales Manager for Ward Hi-Tech Ltd, the UK & Ireland importer for Hwacheon Machine Tools stated:

"We are truly excited by the new models currently coming out of the factory which will allow us to continue to offer our customers leading edge technology, excellent build quality and exceptional value for money".

The "star" of Hwacheons exhibition stand is the Hi-Tech 850L MC a long bed, heavy duty CNC turning centre incorporating "C" axis control and powerful driven tooling. With a turning length of 3500mm and a maximum turning diameter of 920mm, the Hi-Tech 850L MC is of true slant bed construction and features a 32" diameter hydraulic chuck (165mm bar capacity) and 60HP main drive with 4 stage gearbox arrangement lending itself readily to the sort of heavyweight components produced in the oil and gas and power generation sectors.
Driven tooling and "Y" axis options are available, making the latest Hwacheon turning machine a real "all round" performer.

Also brand new is the Hi-Tech 450A MC, a slant bed driven tool turning centre with a maximum turning diameter of 420mm, turning length of 760mm (or 1350mm option), spindle speeds up to 3500rpm, 30 HP main motor with gearbox drive and 12 station service driven tool turret.
The new Hi-Tech 450 range has options of "Y" axis and sub spindle arrangements allowing easy integration into auto loaded machining cells.

For fans of vertical turning, the all new VT-650 MC has a maximum turning diameter of 800mm, turning length of 750mm, spindle speeds up to 2000rpm and main drive motor of 40HP. This eco friendly design is like all Hwacheon machines past and present and offers supreme rigidity. Also appearing on the stand is its big brother the ever popular VT-1150.

The T2-2TY YSMC machine is an extremely sophisticated twin spindle, twin turret, 8 axis machine already launched in the UK at MACH 2010 and now installed in a number of UK factories.
The T2 multi axis turning centre is equipped with left and right 10" chucks (65mm bar capacity), twin 12 station turrets, high power 20HP spindle drive motors and features 30m/min rapids in all axes. A powerful 10HP driven tool motor combined with "Y" axis facility ensures the machine is an extremely versatile performer.

The Hwacheon M9 is a full 5 axis machine using the hybrid technology of Parallel Kinematics Machining. These unique machining centres have no centre tubes allowing faster, easier manufacturing and no ball joints means a stiffer bed for more accurate machining. Used extensively in the aerospace and automotive industries these machines are worth a visit to the Hwacheon stand alone.

Hwacheon will also demonstrate five vertical machining centres on their stand from the newly launched Vesta series.
