Horizontal machining centers HBZ

  • Specifically designed for machining large structural parts for the aerospace industry
  • 5-Axis CNC machining centers for precise cutting combined with maximum material removal rates
  • Optimum productivity for a very wide range of applications with minimum space requirements

Application diversity

The HBZ product range with the AeroCell and CompactCell machines is all about short machining times, optimised machining strategies, and exceptional workpiece quality.

The AeroCell and CompactCell machining centers are ideal for high chip removal, 5-axis CNC machining of aluminum up to 10 meters in length and 2,5 meters in width.

The best machining conditions

The robust machine design enables stable and precise machining – even at high travel speeds, accelerations and jerk values. The horizontal spindle arrangement ensures optimal chip removal and coolant management, and thus avoid recutting.

A unique concept with optimum ergonomics

On bavius horizontal machining centers, the workpiece pallets are rotated into the machining position for horizontal cutting. The AeroCell also has a pallet rotating function, which significantly reduces downtime.
The horizontal table position allows ergonomic loading and unloading for the operator and material handling. The operator has a good view of the working area during the machining process, even with the large components.

HBZ product line

The horizontal bavius machine concept delivers a range of sizes and outstanding technology to ensure there is a solution for your 5-axis cutting application. We have become the preferred supplier to customers with large, flat precision aluminum workpieces.
