First V432Click image to enlargeHeinman Machinery’s newest five axis machining centre is offered in two models: the V700 and V43.

The V700 is a high speed, compact machine with large operating space and X, Y and Z axis travels of 700 x 400 x 600 mm (28 x 16 x 24 in.) respectively, a direct drive motor and 160 mm diameter fourth plus fifth axis (removable) tilting rotary table.

Its box type headstock construction handles high performance cutting and features three axis high rigidity precision roller guideways.

The larger V43 is designed with X, Y and Z axis travels of 1,100 x 600 x 600 mm (43 x 24 x 24 in.) and also features a direct drive motor with a 250 mm diameter fourth plus fifth axis (removable) tilting rotary table.

It features three axes equipped with preloaded oversized ballscrews for feed accuracy and a rigid head structure with six blocks on the Z axis linear way to handle more cutting force.

An eye for machining

by Mary Scianna

Investing in leading edge machining technology to remain competitive

Dynamic measurement of cylindrical parts

Mahr Federal has developed a customized RPM gauge for the dynamic measurement of cylindrical parts such as commutator shafts, turbocharger turbine shafts, and other precision shafts in electric motors. The gage incorporates precision Vees and adjustable end-stops to support the shaft and define its axial position, and a motion belt to rotate the shaft at up to 20 rpm.

Multi-tasking automation

Among the many machines Mazak spotlighted at IMTS 2012, was the Integrex i-630V that performs heavy-duty five axis cutting via high-torque turning and milling spindles. This multi-tasking machine was integrated with Mazak’s pre-engineered Palletech manufacturing system to demonstrate complete Done-In-One unattended part production.
