Milltronics VM8434XP

Milltronics USA’s VM8434XP vertical machining center is built with linear cross roller guides for rigidity, direct-coupled ballscrews for faster response, and a dual-wound spindle motor for faster acceleration/deceleration as well as added torque. The 35-hp machine also includes a heavy-duty belt-driven, 8,000-rpm spindle that generates 365 foot-pounds of torque with a maximum cutting feed rate of 500 ipm.

The 50-taper machining centers in the company’s XP series are designed for applications that need extra cutting power. Features such as coolant rings and washdown systems, lift-up chip conveyors and CNC height adjustment are standard on XP-series machines. The VM8434XP is the largest Milltronics XP machine with X-, Y- and Z-axis travels measuring 84" × 34" × 30", respectively, and a 86" × 34" table.

XP machines are equipped with the 9000-series control that includes 120 GB disk storage, 4 GB memory, improved graphic performance, mid-travel tactile keys and a 15" LCD touch screen. The 9000 control allows operators to run parts programmed either conversationally or by tool paths generated by a CAM system. The control also supports the optional ChipBoss feature that algorithmically calculates tool paths and manages maximum allowable cutter engagement.

    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.
