BHC stands for «Big Horizontal Center», and has the same structure as the HEC range. The «Big Horizontal Centers» are ideal for milling, turning and drilling very large housings, or prismatic workpieces with a maximum interference area diameter of 5,400 mm and weighing up to 25,000 kg. The key features of the range are the extremely long axis traverses, optimized workspace conditions and versatile range of spindle options.
The modular machine design allows the centers to be optimally adapted to individual customer requirements. The choice of working spindles provides excellent flexibility: The possibilities include high performance fixed horizontal spindles, NC controlled traversing spindles for machining deep surfaces and holes, and the Planetary TurnMill device (PTM®) with facing and lateral slides for milling, drilling and turning operations.
