SMTCL-Americas’ VMC850B vertical machining center has been one of its most popular models, the company says. The machine features the Japanese Fanuc 0i Control which features seven-year mean time between failures (MTBF). SMTCL uses the complete Fanuc package including drives, motors, resolvers, and other key components.  

In addition to the control components, SMTCL uses a Taiwanese GIFU 24 position side tool changer and a Taiwanese Spintech 10,000 rpm spindle featuring a high-quality rotary union for providing coolant through the spindle. In addition, SMTCL uses Japanese THK Linear Ways featuring way lube pumped directly to the high-quality bearings. Quality is also enhanced by Taiwanese Hi-Win ballscrews, a United States Bijur lubricating system, and Grundfos pumps which is headquartered in Denmark, but manufactured throughout the world. 

According to the company, SMTCL’s power for the VMC850B comes from the rigid design, standard coolant through the spindle, and the Fanuc drives and motors.
