The Makino V56 vertical machining center is ideal for machining plastic molds and die cast dies for automotive parts, as well as components of home appliances, office automation equipment and IT-related products. It can handle payloads weighing up to 1,760 pounds (800 kg) on a 41.3- x 21.7-inch (1,050 x 550 mm) table. There are no overhangs along the X-,Y-, Z-axis travel of 35.4 x 21.7 x 17.7 inches (900 x 550 x 450 mm). While the V56 maintains a relatively compact footprint of 98 x 96 x 108 inches (2,500 x 2,450 x 2,750 mm), it possesses a large machining capacity. The V56 utilizes a 40-taper, 20,000-rpm spindle, with patented spindle core cooling and under-race lubrication system. It also has rapid traverse and maximum cutting feedrates of 800 inches/min (20,000 mm/min). A high-performance 0.000002-inch (0.00005-mm) scale feedback system is available to provide exceptionally smooth machined surfaces even in high-feedrate machining of 3-D shapes involving continuous tiny blocks of NC data. Advanced data management technology and Super Geometric Intelligence servo control deliver the lowest cycle times available. This technology maintains exceptional accuracy and produces quality finishes that only a machine designed specifically for a die/mold application can provide.
