YMT’s Quickjet GTV-97 gantry-type machining center features a one-piece casting with a double-wall box design for a rigid structure that prevents deformation during machining. The crossrail Y axis is guided by four linear guideways to avoid the yawing effect. The X-, Y- and Z-axis travels measure 35.5" × 23.6" × 19.6", respectively. A Fisher built-in 39-hp vector-controlled spindle motor with Shaft Cool technology provides high roughing at a low speed range, the company says. The spindle is the HSK-A63 taper interface. Three internal sensors monitor temperature changes on the front and rear bearing sets and the motors.

  • How One Shop Machines Advanced Ceramics

    Years of trial and error combined with the appropriate machining technology allow this company to produce custom parts made of alumina, zirconia, boron nitride and other advanced ceramic materials. One example of key machining technology is a five-axis machining center used exclusively to produce the complex, tightly toleranced geometry that fire-hardened workpieces require.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?

  • Don’t Forget The Drawbar

    The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.
