Hyundai Wia’s KF5600 vertical machining center, designed through years of expert engineering and using state-of-the-art control technology, maximizes production rates while maintaining rigidity and accuracy. Standard on this machine is the 8,000/12,000-rpm high-speed direct-coupled spindle, which is directly driven by the motor to simplify the drive system structure and maintenance procedures as well as to reduce noise, vibration and heat generation compared to a belt-driven machine.

A quick tool-change time of 3.2 seconds (the shortest in its class) reduces idle time and improves productivity, making the KF5600 the ideal machine for all your high-volume, high-precision machining applications.

Key features include:

  • Dual-contact spindle (BBT40) – Increased tool rigidity

  • All-in-One mold package – Standard KF5600 feature

  • Linear roller guideways – Reduced non-cutting time and increased rigidity

  • 3.2-second tool-change time

  • Rapid traverse rate (X/Y/Z): 40/40/36 m/min. (1,575/1,575/1,417 ipm)

All-in-One Precision Mold Package

To enhance mold machining, the Hyundai Wia All-in-One Mold Package (20K spindle) is provided as a standard feature on this machine. With cutting air blow, auto power-off, heat distortion compensation and an automatic tool measuring device, the KF5600 ensures accurate and consistent surface finishing and contouring.

Cutting Tools Resist Heat, Hold Size

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Crystallume had its Demon line of cutting tools, which is designed for extended cuts in difficult materials.
