Six-Axis Machine Reduces Setups, Saves Space
IMTS 2018: Promac’s Levante GTR six-axis multifunctional working center offers a compact footprint and a big machining envelope.
Promac’s Levante GTR six-axis multifunctional working center offers a compact footprint and a large machining envelope. It enables roughing, semi-finishing, finishing and deep drilling operations in a single setup. The machine can use drilling tools as long as 23".
Designed to accommodate automation, the machine suits automotive, aerospace, energy, mechanical and prototyping applications. It can produce medium to large, complex parts.
Accuracy is not just inherent to the machine—it also depends on how the machine is used. Try these techniques to let a new or existing CNC machining center achieve its potential precision.
Milling complex forms in hardened tool steel involves more than just fast, light cuts, says this maker of medical-related injection molds. Here are some of the ingredients of an effective hard milling process.
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.
