Optimal Solution For Large Precision Parts and Large Size Mold & Die

SIRIUS-3000 / 5AX is a 5-Axis Machining Center that is equipped with a high speed, high precision universal head with direct drive motor developed through Hwacheon’s technology. This unique feature facilitates quality product production even under prolonged machining.

Product Description

Large Size Precision Parts and Mold Machining

SIRIUS-3000 / 5AX is built for products that require simultaneous 5-axis machining or have complex shape requiring multiple processes within a one-time setup.

SIRIUS-3000 / 5AX is equipped with a very powerful built-in motor spindle of 69.7Kw and is capable of high-speed machining at 24,000Rpm. The high precision 2 axis direct drive milling head, designed and manufactured by Hwacheon, it’s spindle designed with Hwacheon unique Air-Oil lubrication system combined with an effective jacket oil cooling circulation system to ensure consistent performance and to provide high temperature stability while producing quality products hours after hours during high speed runs.

SIRIUS-3000 / 5AX provides a total solution from tool selection to product completion, making it ideal for large size precision parts and mold & die applications where surface quality and accuracy is essential.

  • 24,000 rpm high speed spindle with HSK-A63
  • Jacket cooling for spindle motor
  • Linear drives in Y & X axis
  • Double ball screw drive for Z axis (45m/min)
  • Fast Rapid rates at 60m/min (X & Y axis)
  • Large ATC with 90 stations
  • Compact outside dimensions
  • Almost square X-Y axis dimensions

Stable, Symmetrical Portal-Type Structure

The Gantry design provides most stable support for the Y-axis feed system, the symmetrical structure that distributes the load, vibration and heat of the upper machine area throughout the entire frame enables stable feed even during prolonged operation. Also, minimizing the distance between the Y-axis feed system and the tool’s machining point maintains rigidity and increases machining precision.

Direct Drive Type Rotation Axis

Direct-drive motors are integrated with high-precision encoder without any mechanical transmission such as gears, resulting in minimized backlash and enables high-precision angle division of 0.0001° as well as high-speed rotation feed at 50 rpm, thereby increasing precision and reducing machining time. Also, a powerful hydraulic brake system ensures sufficient rigidity during 3+2 axis machining.

High-Efficiency Multi-Axis Machining

SIRIUS-3000 / 5AX can implement multiple processes with a single setting by machining even undercut areas that cannot be cut by 3-axis. Instead of using ball-end mill to fine cut a surface, it utilizes the sweep function that cuts with the side and base of the end mill to reduce the machining time. It shortens the tool length and provides operations with the ball-end mill’s side blade rather than the end point leads to longer tool life and smooth cut surfaces.

Magazine for High Productivity

SIRIUS-3000 / 5AX is standard-fitted with automatic tool changer which enables prompt machining of parts that require many tools.
