March 2014 Product Spotlight: Machining Centers
This slideshow features the machining centers we cover in the Modern Equipment Review Spotlight section in our March issue.
Compact HMCs Promote High Precision
Sugino’s Self-Center H15 and H15B horizontal machining centers are designed for high-precision milling, drilling, tapping and boring operations for small to medium-sized workpieces.
Waterjet Cutting System Reduces Cutting Allowance
Sugino’s Katana2 high-precision waterjet cutting system is well-suited for cutting titanium, stainless steel, carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer, and other hard materials such as copper and glass into flat shapes.
High-Pressure Water Washing, Deburring Machines
Sugino’s Jet Clean Center line of fully programmable machines is designed for precision washing and deburring simple and complex parts.
Drilling Unit Designed For Aerospace Applications
The Pneucon Selfeeder family of portable pneumatic drilling units from Sugino is designed specifically for the aerospace industry to streamline drilling applications on large wing and fuselage assemblies. The air-powered units feature a TIR of less than 0.
Compact, Five-Axis VMC
Sugino’s Xion II-5-AX is a compact, high speed, five-axis machining center that only requires approximately 21 square feet of floor space. The company says this is half of the room taken up by traditional five-axis machining centers.
Flexible Drilling Unit Achieves Tight Tolerances
Sugino says its selfeeder drill unit, the MS7 Mechatric, delivers an increase in the depth and diameter of drilled holes in ferrous and nonferrous metals. Featuring a 3. 7-kW spindle motor and 7,800-N thrust, the unit is capable of facing and end milling operations.
Picking The Right Automatic Drilling Units
There are many ways to create holes in metal. Some machine tools, including machining centers and turning centers, drill holes as one of several operations performed. This article discusses different kinds of automatic drilling units, each of which is dedicated to making many holes - fast.
