CNC Woodturning Lathe All Automatic Hapfo Challenge-5000

Hapfo Challenge 5000

Hapfo build woodturning lathes on every level from the PERFORMER hand turning lathe to the fully automatic Challenge-5000 and 7000 ranges. CNC automation make this lathe the perfect choice to manufacture high volumes on an industrial scale. Extremely complex parts can be produced with the highest precision on full production runs. Sanding spindles is a thing of the past with the optional sanding unit. Fluted work and twists can be achieved with the Challenge-5000 3-axis machine.

The Challenge-5000 improves on its predecessors with a newly designed hopper system. It combines the tried and tested system used for generations with new advantages. When producing initial samples the whole hopper system can be moved to give full access to the machine. This will also be of advantage when short production runs are required, then hand loading of parts can easily be achieved. The gripper arm has rollers designed to enable it to be used as a computer controlled steady reducing production time. Due to the new gripper design, even out of true spindles can be used more efficiently. The gripper system can also be used to centre sample parts up to 130mm square. Lengths of raw material can be used between 140mm to 1300mm and with an optional addition parts as short as 100mm can be achieved.

The handling and operation of the machine can be done from the front, machined parts can be removed from the front or the back of the machine.

  • Headstock and machine bed are made from high quality grey cast iron with milled and polished bed.
  • Spindle bearing is pre-tensioned having no backlash, M33 and MT3 thread, with hollow shaft for vacuum device.
  • Tailstock made of grey cast iron can be both program controlled (actuated with pneumatic cylinder, pressure can be adjusted by pressure relief valve) and manually operated.
  • Optional CNC-controlled servo-drive motor for spindle speed from 0 to 3500rpm
