A solid base, the highest removal rate in its class and lowest required maintenance allows for a longer tool and machine life. Toyoda’s FA1050 five-axis horizontal machining center is all that along with all the capabilities wanted in boring, end milling, finish cutting, threading and U-axis machining while maintaining accuracy at the industry’s fastest removal rate. At IMTS 2016, Toyoda will show off the FA1050 five-axis during a simulation featuring the trunnion table and rotary table capabilities on machining airframe components.

At Toyoda, we start at the core of the machine—giving you not only the longest machine life, but minimizing tool breakage and unneeded upkeep. Toyoda’s FA1050 five-axis machine begins with a solid cast iron base combined with full-plate clamping mechanism withholding up to 26,000 lbs of table clamp force. Shop owners can expect to achieve stable axial feed at high speeds—590 ipm on the X, Y and Z axes—during heavy workloads due to the machine’s rigid core.

Spindle support from four heavy duty bearings—robust double-row cylindrical roller bearings and dual angular contact thrust bearings—eliminates vibration. The boxway machine performs rapid acceleration and consistency with its 60 hp spindle drive motor at 6,000 rpm of geared head tough cutting.

Unstable machining on difficult metals is a recipe for disaster. The FA1050’s solid structure secures versatile, accurate and highly competitive machining on difficult materials such as Hastelloy, Inconel and Nichrome among other exotic metals.

Cutting Tools Resist Heat, Hold Size

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Crystallume had its Demon line of cutting tools, which is designed for extended cuts in difficult materials.
