With rapid traverse speeds ranging to 2,362 ipm (60 m/min) in all axes and acceleration of 1.2 G, Tongtai’s VTX drilling and tapping centers are designed for high-precision, high-volume machining applications.
The machining center will be designed particularly for manufacturing lightweight framing and structural components for the automotive and aerospace sectors.
Mazak’s FJV-35/80 double-column VMC is designed to provide high precision over extended periods of operation with intelligent CNC functions and rigid construction.
Many factors, such as price, part size and material come into play when deciding whether 3D printing or CNC milling is the best method for making a prototype.
Machining is a complement to AM as a means of finishing metal 3D printed parts. The increasing adoption of AM for production means more need for postprocessing, particularly machining.
Toolroom problem-solving yields high-production profit when a sheet metal fabricating business accepts a difficult machining contract.
Based on the workhorse VMXi series, Hurco’s VMXDi series of machining centers features a direct-drive spindle.
“Methods' established distribution organization, vast network of technology centers and dealers, and first-class applications expertise will help increase OKK presence in North America,” says OKK.
