CNC Lathe Features Integrated Robot
IMTS 2018: Fortune’s Vturn-NP16CM CNC lathe with Easyway robot features a 6" three-jaw hollow hydraulic chuck, a BMT-45 live turret with 12 live tools and more.
Fortune’s Vturn-NP16CM CNC lathe with Easyway robot features a 6", three-jaw, hollow hydraulic chuck; a BMT-45 live turret with 12 live tools; a machine width of 63"; rear chip disposal; a Meehanite, one-piece casting; and roller-type LM guide.
The Easyway robot is seated on the slideways of the tailstock and has three servo motors. The robot accommodates parts as heavy as6.6 lbs, diameters ranging to 4.7" and lengths ranging to 4". The work feeder consists of 10 pallets with dimensions of 6.7" × 15.7" to load up to 120 pieces with part diameters ranging to 1.65".
The company will also display its Vcenter-P136 machining center, its Vturn-Q200T2Y2 CNC lathe and a hybrid plastic injection molding machine with 15" touchscreen.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
