Talent® 51

Bridgeport Hardinge


The Hardinge TALENT® Series machines offer an exceptional combination of features for accuracy, flexibility and durability in a compact design. The unique collet-ready main and sub-spindle design will increase part accuracy and improve surface finish. The TALENT® Series offer’s two separate base structures which feature a robust one-piece cast iron base, heavy duty roller linear guideways and ballscrews, with many standard value-added features – through-tool and headwall air / coolant for both main and sub-spindles, foot switches, chip conveyor interface, barfeed interface, air hose with air gun. The machine features both Fanuc OiTF and Siemens 828D CNC controls which include many value added features.

  • Total Flexibility, one spindle takes all available collet systems
  • Greater working envelope
  • Keep the workpiece close to main spindle bearings, higher stiffness due to integrated design
  • Easy changeover between the system (less than 5 minutes)
  • Quick Change, high repeatability < 0,003mm
  • Established Proven Technology – High Market Acceptance of Flex Type Collets
  • Built in Crash Protection – In terms of a crash the Centrex Ring and the Adaptor needs to be replaced instead of rebuilding the spindle
  • Better Process, lower vibration, better tool live in complex and difficult to cut materials
  • Full use of machine turning capability (Turning Length gain from short design of Adaptors)
  • Quality of Spindle will remain the same (Part Runout)
