Double column design for ultimate rigidity

The work table travels on 3 guideways and is fully supported by enlarged machine base. No overhang to cause distortion. The rigid head structure ensures precise down feed accuracy. Linear roller pack ways are designed for X, Y Z movements. Chip augers are installed at both side of the base for efficient displacement of chips. For extra precision, linear scales are placed on all 3 axes to reduce or eliminate errors caused by ball screw thermal expansion, hysteresis, and pitch errors.

Triple Guideways for cross ( Y axis ) movement

Movement of the head along the cross beam is supported by 3 roller pack guideways. 2 of the guideways are installed at the front of the beam, the third is installed on top of the beam. This design ensures the precise movement of the vertical head along the Y axis.

Fully supported down feed movement

The down feed of the vertical head is supported by 6 roller packs. 3 on each side of the vertical slide. The roller packs ensures the rigidity of the spindle under heavy machining condition.

Large Preloaded High Precision Ball Screws

High precision double nut C3 class ball screws are installed on all 3 axes. The ball screws are pretensioned and anchored at both ends with angular contact bearings. Rapid traverse of the table can reach 1,181 ipm (30M/min). Maximum table load is 6,600 lbs (3,000 kgs) Chip auger is installed at both side of base for easy removal of chips.

Easy Access to ATC Chamber

The Automatic Tool Changer is located at convenient area that allows the loading and unloading of tools to be done during machining. For safety, tool change does not opeerate upon opening of the ATC chamber door.

Window Defogger Device

The viewing window can get rid of coolant and cutting fluid that splash on to the glass. This allow clear view of the ongoing machining operation for monitoring purposes.

FANUC Oi-MF control

The control panel comes with 10” color screen and software such as high speed AICC, 200 blocks look ahead, rigid tapping, manual guide Oi, and extra M codes The operating panel is equipped with detachable MPG (Manual Pulse Generator), USB port, embedded Ethernet
