The TRM3016 from Milltronics is a toolroom mill that offers travels of 30" × 16" × 20". With a table capacity of 35.4" × 16", an 8,000-rpm Big-Plus ISO No. 40 spindle, and a 15-hp spindle motor, the TRM3016 fits many applications. It also features a 9000 DGI WindowsTM CNC control and “drop down” door openings that allow long part pass through to help accommodate oversize parts.
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.
Old-world craftsmanship combines with precision machining on a vertical machining center and Swiss-type lathe to produce some of the only U.S.-made mechanical wristwatch movements.
Hand-scraping the mating surfaces of a CNC machine tool’s motion system offers myriad advantages.
