VMC Tackles Tough Materials, Complex Forms
IMTS 2018: The Mikron Mill P 500 U VMC from GF Machining Solutions offers powerful material removal capabilities, high stiffness, precision and good part surface finish.
The Mikron Mill P 500 U VMC from GF Machining Solutions is designed for powerful material removal, high stiffness, exacting precision and quality surface finish. The machine is said to be particularly useful for complex forms and tough materials in industries including automotive, aerospace, medical, electrical, mold and die, and information and communications technology.
Also on display is the company’s Liechti go-Mill 350 five-axis machining center, which provides the precision needed for aerospace blade and blisk applications.
Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
The force that holds the toolholder in the machining center's spindle can weaken over time. If you haven't checked drawbar force in a while, this may be the weak link in your process.
You know how to machine metals, but what about plastic machining? More specifically, glass-fiber-reinforced plastic? This machine shop has it figured out.
