Vertical turning center
In November 2017, O-M released a vertical turning center “VT7-1600Mi” which added a milling function for machining. They strengthened the clamping mechanism with proprietary technology to restrain the three sides of the tool. Maximum cutting force was 35,000 N (Newtons) and 1.4 times higher than that of the conventional machine. It realized the high cutting force as a multi-function machine capable of drilling and milling.
In addition, the rigidity of all the components such as the tool clamping portion was increased, and the positioning accuracy was improved to ±3.5μm, which is twice as much as that of the conventional machine. The high-pressure coolant is cover 20MPa. Fully closed chips cover was installed to prevent entering chips inside. The productivity is improved by extending the tool life and improving the chip discharge performance.
Its intelligence has also been enhanced by “chip detection system” for detecting chips wound around a blade edge in an image modification process and “machine state monitoring device” for collecting and recording data from various sensors and machine control devices.
