5 axis cnc cylinder head porting machine tool
  The A560 5-axis articulating head high speed CNC machining center is suited to a wide variety of 5 axis machining applications from medical to aerospace to high performance automotive engine building. Our machine is a complete turn-key system, including comprehensive one-on-one CNC porting training and support. Equipped with a 24 pocket automatic tool change and a high speed spinlde, the A560 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 A560 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.

5 axis maching center   Patented Ballscrew design.
CENTROID's ballscrew drive articulating head was designed specifically for CNC Cylinder head porting. Made in the USA of rigid cast iron, the articulating head provides 60 degrees of tilt in each direction (120 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.

As with the CENTROID A532, the A560 also has the capability to digitize in five axes. So, there is no extra machine to buy or out-of-house digitizing expense. The A560 comes equipped with on-machine 5 axis automatic cylinder head digitizing capability. Fast and simple to use, copy and cut a cylinder head port in the same day.


All the software needed to digitize and recreate Cylinder Head Intake and Exhaust ports along with Combustion chambers is included with every CENTROID CNC porting machine. There is no extra software or equipment to buy. Our renowned one-on-one CNC porting training ensures you will be CNC porting heads faster than any other system on the market.
