Five-Axis VMC Performs Complex Contouring

The FSP-80V vertical machining center from SNK America is intended as a cost-effective alternative for applications requiring complex, simultaneous five-axis contouring of difficult-to-cut materials.

The FSP-80V vertical machining center from SNK America is intended as a cost-effective alternative for applications requiring complex, simultaneous five-axis contouring of difficult-to-cut materials. The rigid box-frame spindle head houses a dual-face spindle driven by a 30-hp motor generating 1,407 Nm of torque. The A and B rotary axes employ a highly rigid double-pinion drive system that ensures stable, continuous five-axis machining even under demanding loads.

The VMC’s table size is 31.5" × 78.7" with a maximum table load capacity of 8,800 lbs. Turcite slideways ensure accurate machining of difficult-to-cut materials by greatly reducing cutting vibration. The machine’s XYZ travels measure 90.5" × 33.4" × 27.5". Spindle swivels (A, B) span ±30 degrees.

A FANUC 31i-A5 CNC includes control features that simplify complex contouring operations while delivering good workpiece finishes.

Chip conveyors at both sides of the table promote efficient chip evacuation. A 40-tool, high-efficiency automatic toolchanger system shortens cycle times for increased production. ATCs accommodating 60 and 80 tools are also available. Other optional features include an air blow device, through-spindle coolant, large-capacity coolant tanks, a splash guard and a spindle overload prevention function.
