The latest innovation from Agie Charmilles is the Mikron VCE 800 Pro-X, a vertical machining center designed for universal applications. Efficient and fully equipped, the VCE 800 Pro-X substantially reduces machining times, offers repeatable measuring results and lessens the difficulty of producing items like thin-walled workpieces. The VCE 800 Pro-X is able to withstand the challenge of machining both hard and soft molds while producing cost-effective volume chip removal and high quality surfaces. Fitted with a Step-Tec inline motor spindle, the machine achieves an output of 15kW with nearly 100 Nm torque. Though these characteristics enable the use of face cutters with a diameter of up to 3.3 in. and drilling tools up to 2.4 in., machining with smaller tool diameters allows for a maximum continuous operation speed of 16,000 min-1. Additionally, the VCE 800 Pro-X boasts feed rates of 118 ft/min (X,Y) and 79 ft/min (Z) for cost-effective machining of three dimensional cavities like forged, diecasting and injection molding dies with low to medium complexity. The machine’s range of application is extended by an optional 4th axis that is fully controlled by the Heidenhain 530 TNC CNC and suitable for milling in both positioning mode and simultaneous machining procedures. The Mikron VCE 800 Pro-X also contains measuring probes and 3D Form Inspect software that allow workpieces to be measured on the machine while still in the clamp. While measuring, the software also calibrates the measuring probe machine deviations. This results in reliable, repeatable measuring results for increased accuracy and reduced total machining times.
