Overview

This is a versatile machine with 2 spindles, vertical and horizontal. By taking out the locating pins and swivel the overarm to the desired position it can switch between vertical and horizontal milling operations. It allows the work piece to stay at the same fixed position and perform various milling works. Thus it avoids losing accuracy due to the loading  and unloading of work. The vertical head allows easy tapping operation via a joystick to move the rotating quill up and down. A separate lever control the boring operation of the quill.

Features

Double Box Ways

The saddle moves on double box ways on top of the knee that gives extra support to the cutting force along the Y axis. 

Gear Driven 3 way Table Movements

The gear box drives the table, saddle and knee with different feed rate and rapid traverse for positioning

Joystick for Easy Tapping

The vertical head is equipped with joystick for moving the rotating quill up and down for easy tapping operations.

Precision Quill Movement

A turning handle instead of a lever is used for the movement of the quill for more precise depth. This allows boring operations to be performed on the machine.

Easy Speed Change

A crank handle is used for changing speeds of the vertical spindle

Full Featured Vertical Head

The vertical head is designed with many features that enhanced the milling operations such as automatic kick off at depth setting, quill feed by lever or hand dial, and electric magnetic spindle brake.

EASY CONVERSION FROM VERTICAL TO HORIZONTAL MODE

The overarm can swing around, and put on the arbor, and the arbor supports (standard accessories) to convert the machine to a horizontal milling mode.
