Five-Axis Solution to High Mold Surface Finish Accuracy
A five-axis vertical CNC jig boring-milling machine that offers the exceptionally high accuracy needed for moldmaking.
The Vi40 features a symmetric bridge-type structure, resulting in ultra-high precision when making heavy cuts. Single-piece high-grade cast iron construction, including the column and top beam, increases the rigidity enabling the heavy duty machining that is often required in mold manufacturing.
A 24,000-rpm, 40-taper direct-drive spindle offers a high degree of precision throughout the entire speed range. To reduce thermal distortion and achieve the highest precision five-axis machining, including long production runs, the YBM Vi40 features a thermal distortion stabilizing system where the X-Y-Z axes and two rotational axes (B/C) are maintained to +/-0.2oC to shop ambient temperature.
Here are techniques commonly used to combat chatter and guidelines to establish a foundation for optimizing the moldmaking process.
This machine tool diagnostic device allows the detection of errors noticeable only while machine tools are in motion.
Stability, spindle speed and software are essential consideration for your moldmaking machine tool.
