High-Efficiency VMCs Maximize Spindle Life
The NTV158 series of vertical machining centers from YCM Americas is designed for moldmakers and job shops.
The NTV158 series of vertical machining centers from YCM Americas is designed for moldmakers and job shops. The machining center offers a high rapid feed rate with large Y axis. The Z-axis double-ballscrew drive system and roller-type guideways on all axes ensure accuracy at high feed rates, the company says.
The machining center features a T-base structure with overhang-free table movement to support heavy loads. The 10,000-rpm spindle ensures inline direct transmission and is said to maximize spindle and tool life under harsh conditions. A high-speed axial movement with roller-type guideways provides durability and rigidity. Double-nut high-precision Tsubaki ballscrews are directly driven by a servomotor to eliminate backlash and vibration.
The VMC includes a YCM control by FANUC with high-performance AC digital servo and spindle drives with precise absolute-positioning encoders.
