The Bridgecenter-8F Double Column Vertical Machining Center from Kitamura (Wheeling, IL) offers #40 or #50 taper spindle options for the flexibility needed in the heavy duty cutting of molds to the high-speed, high accuracy cutting required for high precision parts. Both configurations offer positioning accuracy of 0.000078” and repeatability of 0.000039”. This machine is suitable for large, long parts that require a wider machining area, most often associated with the aerospace, defense and mold/die industries. The VMC’s design allows for a reduction in fixturing and set-up of parts that would otherwise generally require more than one machine to complete. In addition, the machine offers the operator wide door openings and an expansive table work area for easy loading and unloading of parts up to 98.4”L x 42.7”W x 30.3” in height On the #40 taper configuration, a 20,000rpm, four-speed gear driven spindle is standard for lighter cuts with fine-finish capabilities at higher speeds. The #50 taper configuration offers three spindle speeds (3,500rpm, 6,000rpm, 10,000rpm) for heavy duty, high torque cutting. The optional 10,000rpm two-speed gear driven spindle allows for an impressive maximum output torque of 199.2ft•lbs with fine finish capabilities. Standard on the #50 taper machine is a 30 HP AC spindle motor with a two-speed, 3,500rpm gear driven spindle allowing the Bridgecenter-8F to reach full power at 317rpm with a maximum output torque of 490ft•lbs (both 3,500rpm & 6,000rpm) for the ability to handle the toughest of materials and the heaviest of cuts.
