willemin-macodel machining center - serie 51 - 518S

Powerful, high-precision machining center designed for milling/turning complex parts. A high level of thermal stability, a compact design, and multiple automation options.

  • 5 or 6 axes
  • Machining on 3 to 5 simultaneous axes
  • Usinage

main characteristics

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


The 518S 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. As an option, the 518S machining center can be equipped with a powered spindle with a high capacity for swarf removal and a maximum torque of 130 nm.

Benefiting from the latest technological developments and Willemin-Macodel's comprehensive expertise in high-precision machining from slugs, the 518S machining center is perfect for cutting-edge industries such as the aerospace sector and high-precision mechanical sub-contracting.
