A series of 5-axis HPC horizontal machining centres for high-performance machining of titanium and aluminium has been developed by Handtmann.

The machine comes equipped with a suitable spindle for the specific material and machining requirements thanks to the flexible machine design, essential components of twhich were constructed to achieve maximum rigidity at a high table load and under dynamic conditions.

The Handtmann Spindle Monitoring System (HSMS) monitors and optimises all processes, and is said to be able to automatically define optimal feed values and rotation speeds.
