Methods Machine Tools, Inc. (Sudbury, MA) offers Feeler High Performance HV-Series Vertical Machining Centers featuring extensive design and engineering by Methods Machine Tools, Inc. for precision high-speed machining and deliver circularity accuracy of 2.7μm.

 

Feeler HV-Series machines use a finite element analyzed, honeycomb ribbed cast column resulting in superior torsional torque resistance and superior low frequency resonance stability. The Z-Axis is driven by a direct drive servo-motor and uses a no-counterbalance design which eliminates chain vibration and results in outstanding surface finishes.

 

They use roller guideways on the X and Y-axes, and feature 1G X-axis acceleration. A 15,000-rpm, 30-hp direct drive Neo spindle provides the speed and power required for superb machining efficiency. Tool change time is 1.9 seconds (tool to tool). They are equipped with a Fanuc 18i-MB control and AI NANO CC with 180 block look ahead.
