The A590 can port cylinder heads from a wide range of engine configurations: V12,V10, V8 heads, V6, Inline 6, 5 and 4 cylinders, Import, Motorcycle, Gas and Diesel engines. The CENTROID porting system overcomes limitations of other cnc porting machines with its unique and patented technology which provides better ports with seamless transitions.
The A590 has the capacity to CNC port long cylinder heads such as inline 6 cylinder gas and diesel heads. CENTROID has simplified the porting process, now you can digitize a head in the morning and be cutting perfect copies in the afternoon. The combination of accuracy, repeatability, training and support allows our customers to produce the most powerful race winnings heads on the market.
A new level of 5-axis CNC machining performance and price point is found in the Centroid A590 5-axis machining center. Weighing in at 23,000 lbs the new A590 combines quickness and accuracy with a large work table, high material removal rates and heavy part weight capacities with an easy to use operator CNC control interface with the latest CNC software. As the name implies the A590’s B axis rotates 90 degrees in each direction for a full 180 degrees of movement of the tilting B axis spindle head. The A590 accommodates work-pieces up to 26.5” in diameter and 46” long with a weight of up to 2425 lbs. The X, Y and Z axes provide swift smooth movement with cutting and rapid feedrate up to 1000 IPM . The A590 has an optional 40 HP 16,000 RPM B axis spindle with through-the-tool coolant and the both the standard 27 HP spindle and the optional spindle are liquid cooled to tightly control thermal growth. Equipped with a heavy duty B axis drive the new design allows for ultra accurate positioning at high rotational rates which yields high metal removal rates while maintaining accuracy, tool life and providing exceptional surface finishes.
180 Degree B axis!
CENTROID's A590 was designed specifically for CNC Cylinder head porting and digitizing those hard to machine heads. Made in the USA of rigid cast iron, the articulating head provides 90 degrees of tilt in each direction (180 degrees total) so the tool can cut even the most radical ports. The design of the A560 minimize tool motion for fast smooth cutting action. The unique ballscrew drive of the articulating head produces the smoothest 5 axis action on the market. The design also overcomes back lash and maintenance problems found with our competitors machines. Where others have tried CENTROID has succeeded with this ingenious robust design which produces fantastic ports blocks and parts.
Versatile CNC Machine
Multi use machine: Port Cylinder heads and intake manifolds, machine combustion chambers, engrave letters, numbers and symbols, add o-ring grooves and more. V12,V10,V8 heads, V6 and 4 cylinders,Diesel, Import and motorcycle engines. Machine Aluminum, Cast Iron, Steel, & Composites.
Perfect Port Matching!
No other machine matches the accuracy of the the CENTROID porting system. Our superior combustion chamber side to manifold side matching guarantees that your design is being machined right where it is supposed to be.
Digitize and cut on the same machine
The A590 also has the capability to digitize in five axes. So, there is no extra machine to buy or out-of-house digitizing expense. The A590 comes equipped with on-machine 5 axis automatic cylinder head port digitizing. Copy and cut a head in less than a day, start to finish.
More than just a porting machine!
With it's +/-90° of head-tilt and a generous work envelope, the A590 excels at machining complex and difficult to fixture parts... making it well suited to a variety of applications beyond cylinder head porting.
Integrated Automatic 5-axis Digitizing!
Digitize and Cut Ports and Combustions Chambers using the same machine and the same control software. No extra software to learn, no extra CMM machine necessary to digitize a head. The same setup menus used to cut are used to digitize. Real 5-axis Digitizing method is a CENTROID exclusive time saving feature that produces better results than the competition. No comparison to the 3 axis patch method the CENTROID 5-axis intake and exhaust port digitizing is fast and accurate. No other system can beat it!
Designed for Cylinder Head Digitizing
CENTROID's DP-7 probe and software is specifically designed for digitizing cylinder head intake, exhaust ports and combustion chambers. This patented probe has special features just for cylinder head copying. Simple for users to specify copy resolution for the most accurate and best results.
Automatic Head Setup
Not only is the probe used to copy your custom shapes, the same probe automatically sets the Head zero locations on the fixture. Quick, Accurate, Automatic part setup saves you time and makes setup simple.
Ultra accurate, stainless steel construction, advanced patented circuitry, interchangeable styli, Made in the USA
