Full Enclosure - Assures Safe & Clean Work Environment
Full enclosure with door safety locks. Keeps coolant and chips contained. Assures a safe environment for the operator and attendants, and helps keep a cleaner work area.
PMI Ball Screws
World-class standard ball screws - efficiently transmit rotary motion to linear motion, allowing for high-speed, highly accurate axis movements. Accurate ball circle diameters throughout length of ball screw assures consistent drag torque and low noise.
Precision Hiwin Linear Guideways with Telescoping Covers
Hiwin linear motion guideways come standard on the VMC425. Stainless steel telescoping guards provide maximum protection of guideways from chips and coolant.
12 Tool Automatic Tool Change System
Reduces cycle times by automatically changing tools between cuts without the need of an operator. Reduces operator set-up errors and maximizes productive operator and machine hours.
BT-30 Tool Holding System
Industry standard CNC tool holding system - the other being the CAT system. Tooling is cheaper with the BT system. We selected the BT system because our customers have said they want a quality standard CNC tooling system - and value pricing.
Large Table and Extended X Axis Travel
40" long work table with 21.5" of X axis travel. Precision ground work table and generous work cube dimensions. Big enough for real production work.
Heavy Machine Castings, PLUS a Heavy Cast Base
3800 lbs. heavy duty, vibration damping castings turns this small VMC into a full duty production machine. High weight-to-work cube ratio assures high rigidity and advanced accuracy. Sturdy cast stand has built-in coolant recycling tank.
Counter Weight Balanced Mill Head
Reduces stress on Z-axis motor and ball screw at higher RPMs. Increases accuracy and extends life of Z-axis components. A counter balanced mill head will not crash in the event of a control failure.
Drive System Features
5 HP Servo Spindle Drive
Plenty of power to match the size of machine. Servo drive on spindle adds to functionality and reliability. High torque, even at low RPMS. Constant toque rise throughout speed range - capable of rigid tapping and spindle alignment.
Schneider Electrical Components
One reason we can offer an 18-month machine warranty is because of the recognized quality and reliability of Schneider Electrical components. Highest reliability rating - highly efficient design reduces power usage.
50-6000 RPM Spindle Speed
Servo driven spindle provides rapid speed changes, from 50-6000 RPMs in a few seconds - in a single speed range. No need for changing gears or belts. Constant torque rise, even at low RPM are assured with the servo drive.
1000 IPM Feed Rates
Faster speeds equals higher production rates. The Siemens industrial control, axis servo drive system and linear ways provide the power and control that allows for higher speeds - many times faster than competitive systems.
Safety Operation Features
Automatic Lubrication System
Lubricates all wear points during machine operation at continuous time intervals. Benefits include reduced labor and material costs and significant extension of bearing life.
Programmable Coolant System
Control coolant flow at the control panel using standard M-Codes. Cycle times can be significantly reduced, while feed and cutting speeds can be significantly increased. Proper cooling extends life of cutting tools.
Focused lighting elements increase operator efficiency and reduce fatigue. This light is flicker resistant, waterproof, and resistant to both cooling and lubricants. It is also resitant to impacts and vibrations.
Tri-Color Warning Light
Turns on when control recognizes a machining error or machine malfunction. An operator standing away from the machine is visually alerted by the activated alarm light when machining cycle is finished or mahine aerrors out.
Siemens 808D CNC Control Features
Closed Loop System
System directly monitors motor position and velocity in real time. The system then automatically makes corrections to assure correct tool positioning. High accuracy and maximum parts quality ensures a minimal rejection rate. Also assures smoother surface finishes. More
Siemens Servos and Drives
Achieves rapid acceleration and higher speeds - Maintains high torque throughout speed range. Motor is highly efficient - and it stays cool. Quiet at high speeds and stays vibration free during operation.
Ideal for CNC Beginners
Ideal for entry level CNC users, the innovative integrative start-GUIDE from Siemens provides an on-line digital help function on every screen. Helpful instructions are available anytime - at the push of a button.
Simple & Intuitive Interface
Well-designed conversational programming functions and Wizards from Siemens help streamline programming at the control panel. All Siemens 808D controls come standard with this SINUMERIK Operate BASIC functionality.
Compact and Robust
Industrial panel design with hardened features is ideal for harsh environments. Small compact design matches smaller machines tools like the AutoMate CNC line.
USB Connector - Easily Handles Large Files
This unique Siemens function allows for the streaming of large program files direct from a USB. Large files are no longer a concern - other CNC systems lack this robust level of functionality.
Several Siemens provided “assists” help streamline programming functions. One example would be Hot Keys. With the Hot Key function, machine operators can easily access commonly used screens using operator defined hot keys.
