The V2000 vertical machining centre from First uses MEEHANITE cast iron for all major machine parts Click image to enlargeThe V2000 vertical machining centre from First uses MEEHANITE cast iron for all major machine parts and its double column design provides stable conditions for heavy-duty cutting.

Its enlarged saddle and rigid head structure has three linear guideways to improve precision—two roller-type linear guideways are on the face of bridge, a third is located up top. 

Double nut C3 class ball screws are preloaded for accuracy and six blocks at Z axis reinforce cutting rigidity and a one-piece base with two slots for chip auger at both sides minimizes cleaning time. 

The table is 2,200 mm x 1,000 mm (86.6-in. x 39.4-in.) with a maximum load of 3,000 kgs (6,614 lb.)
