Vcenter G135 VMC Designed for Heavy-Duty Applications
IMTS Spark: The Vcenter-G135 from Fortune International is a heavy-duty vertical machining center with a 6,000-rpm, high-torque CT-50 spindle and 67" Meehanite cast base.
The Vcenter-G135 from Fortune International is a heavy-duty vertical machining center with a 6,000-rpm, high-torque CT-50 spindle and 67" Meehanite cast base. The machine is equipped with a FANUC 0i-MF Plus (10.4") control with Manual Guide i. Box ways on all axes are cast into the machine bed to ensure maximum table overhang, which contributes to machining accuracy. The machine’s working table measures 55" × 27.56". Rapid traverse rates range to 787 ipm in the X and Y axes and 709 ipm in the Z axis, enabling high production.
Direct-coupled servomotors eliminate backlash. Flexible couplings eliminate any noise due to minor misalignments encountered with other transmission systems, the company says. Double anchored ballscrews improve machining accuracy by minimizing the effects of thermal growth.
Milling complex forms in hardened tool steel involves more than just fast, light cuts, says this maker of medical-related injection molds. Here are some of the ingredients of an effective hard milling process.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
