Machining Centers



The AF-16 is a excellent solution for producing various kinds of parts which require both, high rigidity and productivity. The high torque spindle is either equipped with a direct drive motor spindle or a strong gear system. Hwacheon’s unique Oil-Jet cooling system ensures stable cutting and high quality even during long machining times. Additionally, the stable frame structure designed with FEM analysis will enhance the quality and accuracy of your products.

The AF-16 with Hwacheon’s unique software enables users to get high efficiency, productivity, stability and convenience at the same time. High precision worm gear and rotary encoders at B-axis will maintain high accuracy. Furthermore, users can fix rotating axis by using hydraulic force for rough face cutting and drilling on fixed angle, it will ensure stability and precision.

Main features

Large Injection Mold and Part Machining

Extra-large work space and various options for factory automation offer high productivity in large workpiece machining and unmanned automation system.

W-Axis of Quill

The 3,000 rpm low-speed, high-torque quill-type spindle or the 8,000 to 12,000 rpm high-speed, low-torque spindle can be selected depending on the application. The quill-type spindle utilizes the W-axis for narrow profile machining.

Hwacheon Tool Load Detect System

"Detect and diagnose the most minute of tool-end point movement"

HTLD constantly monitors the tool wear to prevent accidents, which may occur from a damaged tool and help to stop tool wear from deteriorating the workpiece.

(The load is measured every 8 msec to ensure accuracy.)

Hwacheon High Efficiency Contour Control System

"Roughing quickly, finishing is precisely"

HECC offers an easy to use programming interface for different workpieces and different processing modes.

The system provides a precise,custom contour control for the selected workpiece, while prolonging the life of the machine and decreasing process time. The customizable display provides real-time monitoring and quick access.

Cutting Feed Optimization System

"Maximize your productivity with intelligent system"

OPTIMA utilizes an adaptive control method to regulate the feed rate in real time, to sustain the cutting load during a machining process. As a result the tools are less prone to damage and the machining time is optimized.

Hwacheon Spindle Displacement Control System

"Real-time correction for the displacement in the spindle"

When the spindle rotates at high speed, the centrifugal force drives the taper to expand, causing errors in Z axis. HSDC constantly monitors the temperature at each spindle region and makes optimal prediction for thermal displacement.

The system then makes necessary adjustments and eff ectively minimizing thermal displacement.

Hwacheon Frame Displacement Control System

“System for maintaining processing accuracy for a long period of machining"

HFDC is equipped with highly sensitive thermal sensors in the casting region where thermal activity is suspected; monitoring and correcting displacement.

Hwacheon Thermal Displacement Control System

"Hwacheon Spindle Displacement Control System

+ Hwacheon Frame Displacement Control System"

HTDC integrates the Hwacheon Spindle Displacement Control system and the Frame Displacement Control System.
