Hardinge Inc., the leading international provider of advanced metal-cutting tool solutions and accessories, introduces the Bridgeport® V1320 vertical machining center. As an addition to its Bridgeport V-series vertical milling center line, the new V1320 is the best overall working cube in its class, offering a high-quality, rugged, and powerful machine center developed for tough machining applications that is well suited for high-speed and hard metal cutting conditions.

The V1320 is a state-of-the-art advanced performance CNC machining center at the top of the Hardinge milling product line, said Michael Marshall, Hardinge’s global milling product manager. “Our machine centers provide not only highly accurate and precision detailed parts in the aerospace and medical industries but also the robustness to handle the demanding day to day operations in the automotive industry.”

The new machine is a fully digital, high-quality machine tool, designed to achieve maximum capacity and performance in the job shop, OEM, aerospace, automotive, energy, and other demanding markets.

V1320 features include:

  • Dual Y-axis ballscrews for improved surface quality and roundness accuracy, acceleration, reduced vibration, and increased tool life. 
  • Easy and intuitive to use with new touch screen control: Equipped with a 15” Mitsubishi M80 Color LCD touch screen, users can intuitively control the machine. Pinch to zoom in and out, scroll through screens, move pop-up windows on the screen, or drag with a single finger. The M80 also will come standard with two 32 Gb SD card slots for memory expansion, USB program running, high accuracy modes, and super smooth surface software.
  • Provides superior machine accuracy and repeatability with dual ballscrews: The V1320 comes complete with oversized high-class 45mm double nut Ballscrews, fixed and pre-tensioned and large 45mm linear high-quality linear guideways supported by six trucks on the X and Z axis., with dual 40 mm ballscrews on Y axis.
  • Confident cutting with a powerful spindle motors: The new V1320 has a Big Plus, 40 taper, 12,000-rpm Direct Drive spindle powered by a dual-wound Mitsubishi spindle motor. Quad set of 70mm angular contact bearings and a 60mm rear taper roller bearing provide superior thermal stability, significant radial and axial stiffness and high accuracy as well as 900 kgf tool retention for aggressive cutting applications.
