Multitasking Turning Center Performs Complex Machining

Hyundai Wia’s L2100SY multitasking wedge-type Y-axis CNC turning center features an 8" chuck on the main spindle and a 6" chuck on the subspindle to support complex machining in a single setup.

Hyundai Wia’s L2100SY multitasking wedge-type Y-axis CNC turning center features an 8" chuck on the main spindle and a 6" chuck on the subspindle to support complex machining in a single setup. The gearless, 20/14.6-hp main spindle is designed for high-precision applications at speeds ranging to 4,500 rpm, with features that ensure minimal thermal growth at high speeds or under heavy cutting loads. The subspindle with C axis is driven by the B-axis ballscrew and servomotor to promote precision and accuracy, with speeds ranging to 6,000 rpm.

The machine provides 24.8" (630 mm) swing over the bed, a maximum turning length of 17.91" (455 mm) and bar capacity of 2.56" (65 mm). The X-and Z-axis travels measure 8.27" (210 mm) and 22.83" (580 mm), respectively, while the Y-axis travel ranges from 3.15" ±1.69" (100 ±50 mm). Cutting is reinforced by an all-axis box guideway design, which provides rigidity and accuracy. A three-step gearbox is ideal for low-torque, heavy cuts as well as high-speed fine finishing.

Programming Considerations for Inverted Vertical Turning

Since its inception, the self-loading/unloading design of inverted vertical turning machines has evolved to include multitasking operations that augment its original task of turning. This article looks at ways to optimize the programming of these machines and to take advantage of the multiple operations available for workpiece processing.
