The DS1500/450C machining center features two machining systems:
The 1200mm diameter U-axis contour-head has three tool pocket positions on the 450mm travel u-axis slide, suited for small to large diameter turning operations, using the same tool. It can also perform virtually any type of turning operation – spherical or tapered turning, as well as boring, back facing, and single point thread-cutting using standard boring or threading tools.
The high speed spindle, located below the contour-head, is used for milling, drilling, tapping, and other machining center operations. For high speed boring and turning applications the high speed milling spindle incorporates a CNC controlled differential system, for programming tool changeable contour-heads.
During turning operations the tool works just as a lathe, utilizing constant surface speed to obtain optimum tool life and metal removal. The U-axis contour head is locked in place anytime the milling spindle is in use.
Quality and production processes have become our strong points for over half century, right from the first phase of creation and design inside our technical office.
Control and excellence follow to a series of choices held as being fundamental for guaranteeing a quality result: all machining processes are carried out inside the company in order to control each production phase of the machine.
Boring machines, milling machines and lathes are all part of the production machine inventory, some of these were specially designed by Girolamo Trevisan for specific applications.
