MAG Fadal (Chatsworth, CA) raises performance in precision machining of high-value mold and die parts, with its VMC 4525 that combines 1359 mm x 635 mm (53.5" x 25") table with 15,000 RPM air/oil spindle and new Infimatic Freedom NC™200 control featuring a special mold and die package.

The high-speed spindle enables faster axis feeds and finer finishes, while air/oil injection yields the extended duty cycles needed for mold and die machining. Proven robust C-frame architecture features wide base, heavily ribbed cast iron construction and integral flame-hardened box ways with large 40 mm ball screws, providing excellent vibration damping to deliver heavy cuts with tolerances to ±4 µm (0.00016"). XYZ travels of 1143 x 635 x 609 mm (45" x 25" x 24") allow processing flexibility — handling large mold workpieces or enabling simultaneous machining of matching die halves.

Designed specifically for metal-cutting machine tool applications, the digital Infimatic Freedom NC 200 extends the VMC's capabilities for performance and precision. Specially configured for mold and die machining with Duet Dual Processor, the control delivers 1,500 blocks per second to precisely perform 2D and 3D contouring cuts at higher speeds and feeds without lag, dwell or run-on.

The Freedom NC200 with Mold and Die Package includes:

• GibbsCAM SolidSurfacer® high-level surface and solid modeling software

• Super-responsive servo loop closure for enhanced accuracy

• PurePath™ algorithms for smooth surface finish.
