The Takumi H12 CNC double-column machining center is designed for parts that require speed, accuracy and surface finish in the die/mold, aerospace and other high-speed applications. The ladder structure and double-column design provide rigidity and support to the head casting, while the one-piece base absorbs the inertia of high cutting feeds. The machine features a 15,000-rpm Big Plus CAT 40 inline direct-drive spindle. Thirty of the machine’s components are hand-scraped for accurate alignment.

The H12 is equipped with the FANUC 31-i-MB control, which features AI Contour Control (AICC) 2 with high-speed processing, machine condition selection and Nano smoothing. The control provides 600-block lookahead and a 1-GB data server with editing capabilities.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?

  • The 400° Difference

    Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.

  • Drilling Deep Holes On A VMC

    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.
