The GenMill T-500 mill/drill/tap center from Ganesh Industries features a 12,000-rpm spindle that can tap at 6,000 rpm. Rapid traverse rates are 2,362 ipm in all three axes, and table travels measure 20" × 17".  A 21-station tool turret offers 1.6-second, chip-to-chip tool-change time. The machine features six air-vises. An enclosure with a top cover is included along with automatic power-off and pre-installed, fourth-axis wiring.

The machine also features roller bearing ways, a dual-contact Big-Plus spindle, and the Mitsubishi M80 control with 1,350 block look-ahead and 135,000 block per minute processing speed. It also includes a 32-GB data server and Nano Smoothing.

The machine will be shown with a fully integrated Mitsubishi robot, pallet and tool changing system featuring teach-point programming.

    The recipe for best results is simple: Start with a rigid machine, add a high pressure through-the-spindle coolant system, then combine these with the right drill geometry plus the right speeds and feeds.

    Though it won’t replace high speed machining, Boeing sees “low speed machining” as a viable supplement to higher-rpm machines. Using new tools and techniques, a shop’s lower-rpm machining centers can realize much more of their potential productivity in milling aluminum aircraft parts.
