Our PowerBridge series is the answer to portal-type machines in the upper capacity range. The portal design grants, by its very construction, a high rigidity, allowing for example 5-sides machining of motor blocks in their installation position. The central components of our portal-type machines – bridge, headstock, milling head, rack and pinion drive – were taken from our travelling column machines and adapted to suit the PowerBridge. Simply put – for this purpose we have tilted the travelling column into the horizontal position. Excellent cutting performance, precision, productivity, reliability and flexibility of the SHW travelling column machines have been transferred to the portal concept.
We offer for each and any manufacturing concept the suitable solution – high or low – the guiding of the bridge in longitudinal direction will be executed as per your requirements.
