Takumi H10 Double-Column Machining Center Features 15,000-rpm Spindle
IMTS Spark: The Takumi H10 double-column machining center features a 15,000-rpm inline spindle with a Big Plus Cat 40 taper.
The Takumi H10 double-column machining center features a 15,000-rpm inline spindle with a Big Plus Cat 40 taper. The H series is designed for parts requiring high speed and accuracy with good surface finish. The machine’s X, Y and Z travels measure 40.16" × 27.56" × 19.69". The H10 is equipped with a FANUC 31i-MB control with 1-GB data server.
The machine has a rigid and thermally stable double-column design to support applications in the die/mold and aerospace industries. The ladder design of the bridge provides greater support for the head casting, and extra-wide door openings facilitate loading and unloading. Optional accessories include a ballscrew cooling system, CAT3-compliance package, chip conveyor and cart, and part and tool probe measurement systems.
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.
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.
At IMTS 2014, you’ll see that a familiar U.S. machine tool brand is back.
