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.
Different machines offer different approaches to rotary travel, and each design has its own strengths. Here's how they compare.
... not to mention grinding with air. Thanks to high speed spindles powered by shop air, this job shop expands the work its VMCs can do.
Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
