VF-3SSYT DETAILS Details:

VMC; 40" x 26" x 25" (xyz), 30-hp inline direct drive.

The Super VF-2 comes standard with an innovative 12,000-rpm inline direct-drive spindle, an ultra-fast tool changer and 1400-ipm rapids. The unique inline, direct-drive system couples the motor directly to the spindle rather than using belts. Less vibration, less heat and less noise than other drive systems provides better surface finishes, thermal stability and very quiet operation. The newly designed 24+1 side-mount tool changer uses lighter materials and a high-performance servo motor, for tool changes that take less than 1.5 seconds tool to tool. High-pitch ball screws and high-torque servo motors on all axes provide rapids of 1400 ipm.
 

Added options:

Expanded Memory to 16 MB: Allows loading of large programs directly into the machine, rather than DNC, for faster feed rates. High-speed static RAM is faster than dynamic RAM and retains data even when the power is turned off.

4th-Axis Drive and Wiring: Allows the use of 4th- and 5th-axis rotary tables for multi-side machining or machining complex contours and shapes, such as impellers. Yields increased productivity and reduces setups.

High-Speed Machining :High-Speed Machining with Look Ahead Feature Higher throughput allows faster feed rates and more complex tool paths without hesitation or starving the machine. This option improves productivity and profit margins by yielding a better part finish and faster cycle times. Using a motion algorithm called "acceleration before interpolation" combined with full look-ahead of up to 80 blocks, the High-Speed Machining option provides cutting feed rates up to 833 inches per minute without risk of distortion to the programmed path. This results in drastically reduced cycle times while providing improved accuracy and smoother motion.

Linear Scales for X, Y, Z axis: When absolute positioning accuracy is necessary, linear scales are the only way to ensure exact axis positioning under the fluctuating conditions that exist in today’s machine shops. Linear scales ensure positioning accuracy along X, Y and Z-axes by compensating for the thermal variations inherent in all machine tools. These scales deliver positioning accuracy of 2 microns to guarantee the type of precision that mold making and other high-tolerance machining applications demand.

Thru-Spindle Coolant: The Thru-spindle coolant operates via an auxiliary pump that supplies coolant at 300 psi to the cutting edge. This improves tool life and allows higher speeds, deep hole drilling and blind pocket milling. The result is high productivity and reduced cycle times.
