Centroid Announces its A590 5-Axis Engine Shop Machining Center

A new level of 5-axis CNC machining performance and price point is found in the Centroid A590 5-axis Engine Shop machining center. Create billet blocks and heads and CNC port and blue print Diesel blocks and heads faster than ever before.

A new level of 5-axis CNC machining performance and price point is found in the Centroid A590 5-axis Engine Shop machining center. Create billet blocks and heads and CNC port and blue print Diesel blocks and heads faster than ever before.

Weighing in at 23,000 lbs., the new A590 combines quickness and accuracy with a large work table, high material removal rates and heavy part weight capacities with an easy to use operator CNC control interface with the latest CNC software. As the name implies the A590’s B-axis rotates 90 degrees in each direction for a full 180 degrees of movement of the tilting B-axis spindle head.

The A590 accommodates work-pieces up to 26.5˝ in diameter and 46˝ long with a weight of up to 2,425 lbs. The X, Y and Z axes provide swift smooth movement with cutting and rapid feedrate up to 1,000 IPM. The A590 has an optional 40 hp 16,000 RPM B-axis spindle with through-the-tool coolant and both the standard 27 hp spindle and the optional spindle are liquid cooled to tightly control thermal growth.

Equipped with a heavy-duty B-axis drive the new design allows for ultra accurate positioning at high rotational rates, which yields high metal removal rates while maintaining accuracy, tool life and providing exceptional surface finishes. The A-axis employs a roller cam drive with high torque capacities for heavy cuts and fast rotational rates even with heavy parts.

The massive wide machine tool base and column provides the stability needed with dual pair extra large linear ways on the Y-axis, which allow the large work table (23.6˝ x 59˝) to be loaded at any point since it is fully supported. Equipped with a standard 24-position swing arm tool changer, a 40-position tool changer is optional for shops that need a large number of tools to complete a job.

With unlimited G-code file size, the A590 is equipped with a Centroid M400 CNC control with its fast block throughput, high speed 5-axis machining is a standard feature specifically designed for high feedrate, tight tolerance machining of short vector G-code created by modern CAD/CAM systems. Large part programs can be handled with ease. The M400 is equipped with a large Solid State Drive and is also easy to network for easy part program downloads and backups.

Designed for machining complex 3D contoured work-pieces the A590 holds tight tolerances with flawless blends and matches of the part geometry. Built in the USA, the Centroid A590 is backed by USA-based technical support and service.
