Hyundai Wia’s F650VM vertical machining center is designed to offer high performance at the company’s Value Master price range. Travels measure 51.2" × 26.4" × 25" in the X, Y and Z axes, respectively. Rapid traverse rates are 1,418 ipm (36 m/min.) in the X and Y axes and 1,182 ipm (30 m/min.) in the Z axis. The VMC is said to be well-suited for small- to medium-sized job shops.

A Big Plus spindle system provides dual contact between the spindle face and flange face of the toolholder, increasing rigidity and reducing runout. It features a 25-hp, 10,000-rpm spindle that enables deep cuts at high speeds. The VMC also is equipped with through-spindle coolant too keep chip flow clear of the cutting surface in deep-hole drilling and other applications. A side-mount, swing-arm-type automatic toolchanger accommodates 30 tools and provides tool-change time of 1.5 sec. The toolchanger and magazine are separated by a shutter system that closes during machining to keep chips and fluids away.

Axes are driven by high-precision double-nut ballscrews directly connected to the servodrive motors without gears or belts, eliminating backlash. Linear motion guideways in all three axes enables rapid, high-speed axis movement, reducing noncutting time and decreasing cycle times. The bed, column and saddle are composed of Meehanite cast iron to minimize deformation during heavy-duty cuts and absorb vibration for stable machining. The VMC also is equipped with the a FANUC i-Series CNC control with a 10.4" color LCD display.

    Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
