Enshu’s GE30Ve vertical machining center (VMC) is designed for efficiently producing small parts in a lean line with either a 13,000-rpm, 30-taper spindle or an 8,000-rpm, 40-taper spindle. The 600 × 600 × 400-mm XYZ travels provides the loading capacity and space required for an NC rotary table. The machine features rapid traverse rates of 50,000 mm/min. (1,969 ipm), a FANUC 0i-MD control and 24-tool magazine capacity.
A compact footprint of 1,150 × 3,200 mm enables side-by-side installation of multiple machines within a limited amount of floor space to reduce transport time of the workpiece. Overhead gantry access or robot loading supports the automation of multiple VMCs.
