Makino Milling Machine
5-axis horizontal machining center
5 axis horizontal machining center (MC) “a500Z” for part machining significantly reduced cutting time and non-cutting time. It adopts the company’s design concept “Intelligent ROI (Reduction of Inertia) design. “Its proprietary titling table unit enable faster operation. a500Z also adopts a structure that supports the table diagonally from below. This allows horizontal setup even for the horizontal MC.
In addition, the two X-axis guides for guiding the columns were used as slant beds with different steps to ensure rigidity in the Z-axis direction while reducing the column weight, resulting in high acceleration performance.
The spindle uses a quick direct drive system that reaches a maximum 14,000 rpm. Maximum loading weight is 400 kg and size of pallet is 500 mm square.
The “Vision B.T.S.” tool breakage detecting system is installed as a standard specification to shorten the cycle time and improve the productivity. The target workpiece covers wide range such as automobiles, semiconductors, construction machines, and aircraft.
