Suited to large-sized parts in the die/mold and aerospace industries, the eVer 7 milling center from Jobs SPA features an overhead gantry structure that slides on fixed columns or a concrete base. Design principles emphasize high dynamics and chip removal capacity through the machine's crossbeam "MT-frame" structure. The gantry's kinematic properties enable high acceleration and speeds ranging to 1,260 ipm. The company says the machining center reduces hourly operating costs, simplified maintenance, and provides flexibility with an ergonomic design and easy load/unload feature. A compact design allows for a full enclosure to contain chips and other machining residue. The machine features dual-drive, longitudinal X-axis travels of either 157", 275" or 335", with 59" extensions; transversal Y-axis travels of 118", 138" or 157"; and vertical Z-axis travels of 49", 59" or 69". The machine also comes with a distance between columns of either 144", 163" or 183" and a worktable width of 98", 118" or 138". Optional rotary options are available.
The machine can be equipped with an automatic toolchanger system compatible with a range of three- and five-axis, mechanically driven milling heads and universal heads offering as much as 5,000 rpm and 59 hp. The five-axis heads can also mount a 12,000-rpm or 20,000-rpm electrospindle for high-speed semi-finishing and finishing operations. Available accessories include tool change systems, pallet systems and production control devices, among others.
