As Seen In Modern Machine Shop
December 2014 Product Spotlight Slideshow: Machining Centers
View the December slideshow to see some of the latest vertical, horizontal and five-axis machining centers.
HMC Designed for Faster Cycle Times
OKK’s HMC500 horizontal machining center features a 500-mm pallet to accommodate large workpieces and is intended to provide faster cycle times.
Presetting Becomes Prevalent
Next Intent implemented presetting and shrink-fit toolholding when it bought a five-axis machining center, but it has since seen these resources deliver value to machining centers throughout the shop.
HMC with Lightweight Column Promotes Rigidity
OKK’s HMC400 horizontal machining center is designed for high-speed machining with a lightweight column featuring a rigid, stepped-X-axis rail design.
VMC Designed for Increased Rigidity
OKK USA Corporation has upgraded its VM vertical machining center line to include the VM-76R, which is designed for increased rigidity, accuracy and work area.
Die/Mold VMC Designed for Increased Precision
OKK USA’s VB53 VMC is designed to achieve quality surface finish, high precision and high speed for die/mold applications.
Vector Programming Eases Five-Axis Aerospace Machining
Because the CNCs on this shop’s largest five-axis machining centers accept vector coordinates as program input instead of traditional G codes, critical jobs can be shifted readily from machine to machine.
HMC Features 50-Taper Spindle for Heavy-Duty Cutting
Featuring a 50-taper spindle, OKK’s HM500S/50 HMC is designed for heavy-duty cutting of small parts as well as hard-to-cut materials, such as titanium.
Five-Axis Machining Center For Tough Materials
The VG5000 five-axis machining center is said to offer stability and accuracy when machining difficult materials such as titanium and stainless and tool steels. Its large cross-roller guideways and cast-iron body offer good damping characteristics, according to the company. The machine features a 50-taper spindle t
From Mold Making To Mold Manufacturing
Pro Mold had to change its entire shop culture to make the move to “net machining.” The experience made the company stronger.
Under One Roof
In bringing multiple manufacturing processes in-house, this medical shop parallels its customers' efforts to be one-stop sources for hospital equipment.
Breaking The Electrode Bottleneck
This company uses high speed machining to slash the time it takes to make graphite electrodes for EDMing of molds and dies. From days to hours. Sounds like a simple, straight-forward formula for cutting costs and lead times, doesn't it?
