Hwacheon Machinery offers its Vesta 1000 VMC for stable, high-speed, precision machining and long-term productivity in job shops serving the die/mold, automotive, energy, medical and aerospace industries. The machine’s X-, Y- and Z-axis travels measure 1,000 × 550 × 500 mm with a table surface of 43.31" × 19.69" and load capacity of more than 1,500 lbs. Distance from table surface to gage plane ranges from 5.12" to 24.8" to accommodate a variety of workpieces.

Rapid feed rates of 1,417 ipm in the X and Y axes and 1,180 ipm in the Z axis promote quick tool positioning. A 24- or 30-position tool magazine, carrying tools as long as 12" and ranging to 6" in diameter, offers tool-to-tool change time of 1.5 sec., further reducing cycle time. A 25-hp motor delivering maximum spindle speed of 12,000 rpm, plus Hwacheon’s adaptive software suite make the Vesta 1000 a high-performance machine for fast roughing as well as high–quality finishing.

The software monitors environment- and machining-related variables and adjusts the machining process automatically, minimizing cycle times and optimizing machining results.Hwacheon’s Tool Load Detection (HTLD) System constantly detects and diagnoses the tool load during machining to reduce tool wear and prevent damage. HECC software provides precise contour control for better machining efficiency. Optima software controls the feed rate, reducing cycle time by as much as 25 percent, the company says.
