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.
You know how to machine metals, but what about plastic machining? More specifically, glass-fiber-reinforced plastic? This machine shop has it figured out.
While aluminum molds are commonly used to create prototypes or to serve as stopgap bridge tooling, they are starting to receive greater attention for production work. This shop’s approach to creating aluminum molds in one day to three weeks is the same for each of these situations.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
