Machines Reliable for High Production Manufacturing
JTEKT Toyoda Americas Corporation will showcase the FH500J high-speed horizontal machining center and Takisawa Taiwan NEX-105 horizontal linear turning center at EMO Hannover 2019.
The FH500J horizontal machining center (HMC) is designed for speed and production reliability, featuring a 15,000 rpm, 50 HP (37 kW), 303 Nm (223 ft-lb) high acceleration spindle. This 40-taper spindle is designed with four ceramic bearings at the front of the spindle for rigidity and reduced vibration. Its patented hydraulic preload system brings the spindle up to 10,000 rpm. The HMC is equipped with a direct drive B-axis table featuring an index time (90 degrees) of 0.5 seconds. The FH500J machining center with the spindle design, preload system and high torque features enables machine shops to take advantage of high volume machining in a compact footprint.
In alliance with Takisawa Taiwan, JTEKT Toyoda Americas will also be displaying the NEX-105 turning center at the show. The NEX-105 is a compact solution capable of mass producing small complex parts, offering spindle speed up to 6,000 rpm and fast indexing capabilities on its linear roller bearing guideway. The chuck size machine will be running live cutting demonstrations throughout the show, featuring a maximum swing of 15.7-inches (398 mm), a maximum turning diameter of 6.7-inches (170 mm), and a maximum turning diameter of 6.7”-inches (170 mm).
In today's moldmaking market, selecting proper parameters of the machining operation to avoid.
In the last two years, there have been many exciting developments in high-speed machining relative to machining centers and controls, tooling and CAD/CAM systems.
This machine tool diagnostic device allows the detection of errors noticeable only while machine tools are in motion.
