willemin-macodel machining center - serie 51 - 518JIG

The best machines can become JIG units, acquiring a great degree of static precision for finishing or boring for watchmaking. JIG machining centers are also incomparable instruments indispensable to the space or aviation industries.

  • 5 or 6 axes
  • Jig Boring
  • Usinage

main characteristics

  • Powered spindle, 50 - 20,000 rpm
  • B axis angular movement -10° to +100°
  • HSK-A63 interface
  • B axis indexing from 0° - 90° in 0.2 sec


The 518JIG machining center has been designed for high precision machining of complex parts within a maximum cube dimension of 220 mm per side, requiring surface finishes of the highest quality. The high-precision rotary divider with direct drive and the large capacity tool magazine (up to 180 tools) combine to form a production unit which offers high levels of performance, flexibility and productivity. The compact construction of this machine minimizes its footprint.

Equipped with an HSK-A63 interface, the pivoting powered spindle with highly dynamic synchronous motor is fitted on the B axis.

Willemin-Macodel's expertise and experience in the design and production of ultra high precision machines are essential requirements when it comes to manufacturing JIG BORING type machining centers (boring, reaming). The geometry and quality of the machine's constituent components must be perfect. Only a super precision machine tool that offers almost perfect straightness, perpendicularity and positioning repeatability can be further improved by a volume calibration operation.
