Roller vs Ball linear ways

When subjected to a load, rollers form line contact with the guide surface, which is much larger than the point contact that is formed when balls are subjected to a load. This gives roller rail guides higher load capacities than ball rail guides of the same size.

High Precision Ball Screw

Each axis is driven by a high precision double-nut ball screw that is centered between the guide ways.

The ball screws are pretensioned and anchored at both ends with angular contact bearings. Ball screws using single nuts or ones that are not pretensioned will have much greater play and backlash which can lead to problems with chatter and accuracy

High Performance Spindle

The spindle is designed with air curtain and air blast at tool change to prevent small chips from entering the inside of the quill.  Around the spindle, there are coolant nozzles for cutting operation and air nozzle for cutting dry.

FANUC Oi-MF control

The control panel comes with 8.4” 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.

Auto Grease Lube System

Superior to Oil Lube system, Grease Lube stays onto the slide ways for longer time and requires less maintenance.
