AV-Tech Machine Tool has added the HT-500A and HF-380 series CNC HMCs to the Twinhorn line. The machines are designed with high-tensile Meehanite cast iron on all major parts to increase rigidity. They also feature a three-layer, T-shape, box-type design. The base structure’s multiple layers and enforced ribs prevent deformation and reduce vibration during high-speed operation, the company says.
 
To further enhance stability and resistance of column motion, the machines feature a differential slide base and high-/low-level X-axis guideways with a 580-mm-wide span.
 

Other features include external spindle cooling systems, air-lock systems on spindle noses and floating-tool clamp/unclamp systems to reduce noise and vibration

  • 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?

  • Milling with Air

    ... not to mention grinding with air. Thanks to high speed spindles powered by shop air, this job shop expands the work its VMCs can do.

  • 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.
