Universal Machining Center Expands Machinable Height
Available from GBI Cincinnati, the Matec 30-HVK series traveling-column universal multitasking center is designed for small-volume production at OEMs and job shops. The machining center enables multi-face machining in one setup, and its 31.50" Z axis expands the machinable workpiece height. The X- and Y-axis travels measure 51.18" × 23.62", and the integrated rotary table is 24.8" in diameter. All linear axes are equipped with oversized linear roller guides and direct glass scales with resolution to 0.001 microns. The Y axis also features a constant overhang for rigid distance between the column and motor spindle, preventing the Z axis from tilting in the whole traverse area of the Y axis.
A continuously moving 105-degree CNC swivel head enables flexibility for a range of applications. The worktable consists of a fixed table segment and integrated CNC rotary table, both on the same level, with a load capacity of 1.5 tons. The toolchanger features 36 stations and is situated in the spindle stock. The tool magazine is installed into the travelling column and moves in the X and Y axes, and tool changes can be carried out on each X and Y position directly over the workpiece. The 30-HVK machining center is also available as a turn-mill center with a rotary speed of 1,000 rpm.
