The Hardinge Group Releases New Bridgeport 5-Face V-Series Machining Center

The Hardinge Group, a leading international provider of advanced metal-cutting solutions, announces the release of the new Bridgeport 5-Face (4+1) Vertical Machining Center – the V 320 5F.  The new 4+1 axis vertical machining centers are high quality machine tools designed to achieve maximum capacity and performance ideal for the medical and dental market and that complements the automotive, aerospace and other industries as well.

The V 320 5F is manufactured to the highest industry standards to exceed the requirements of the demanding metal-cutting market. 4+1 machining allows the part to be machined on 5 faces in one single set up. The part remains in one fixture instead of being moved from one fixture or vise to another, drastically reducing setup time while improving accuracy.

Bridgeport’s innovative technology provides superior accuracy, repeatability, a large load rating, stable accuracy, high rigidity and low friction optimum for small to medium parts. All of the robust features are designed into a small cost-effective footprint machine.  The machines come packed with standard features including a BIG-PLUS spindle, oil chiller, chip conveyor, coolant flush system, preparation for through spindle coolant (with rotary union), coolant wash down gun, tri-color stack light and many standard control features.

“These new Bridgeport 5-Face Machining Centers offer a high degree of sophistication and functionality in a small footprint at an attractive price,” states Brooke Sykes, Director of Sales and Technical Support, North America.  “Like all Bridgeport machining centers, these machines reflect Hardinge’s commitment to quality and performance without compromise.”
