For the oil and gas industry, YMT offers two lathes with oversized spindle bore for pipe threading and turning needs. The LL-750 Big-Bore CNC flatbed from L&L offers 29.5" of swing over bed, 157" of distance between center and a 9” spindle bore. With a simple thread repair function, the LL-750 is well-suited for pipes, the company says.
The second lathe, the SA-45 Big-Bore CNC turning center, features a 60 degree true slant-bed design with 14" spindle bore. The lathe is equipped with FANUC 31iTB controller with thread repair function, and is 12-station servo driven by a Baruffaldi turret. The lathe is designed for turning complicated pipe threads. YMT will also display a redesigned VL-1600ATC vertical turning center from YSP, which offers a Rigid Clamping System (RCS) for heavy cutting requirements.
YMT also offers two FMC systems from Quaser for lights-out automation. The first FMC system features a high-speed, HX-504 horizontal machining center (HMC) with an eight-pallet shuttle-type system. The 19.7" × 19.7" pallet can accommodate part sizes as long as 31.5", and is expandable per customer requirements. The HX-504 is equipped with a 240-tool ATC, full fourth-axis capability and a 15,000-rpm spindle with 1,000-psi coolant-through-spindle capability. The 40-hp spindle and 2,360-ipm feed rate are designed to increase cutting capability and machining efficiency.
The second FMC system, the MF-400U five-axis machining center, is well-suited for machining complicated medical and aerospace parts that require different fixtures and setups, the company says. The 40-pallet FMC has a 120-tool capacity designed to continuously machine parts without interruption.
Also on display is the high-speed and high-accuracy graphite AV-70S machining center from Quickjet, as well as the HIS-318 double-column machining center from Kao Ming. Both machines are designed to meet mold and die requirements for medical and automotive industries.
