MC Machinery Systems Inc. has launched a general purpose milling line, expanding its range of machine tools.

The Diamond Cut general milling line includes five series of vertical machining centres as well as drilling and tapping machines. The MCV series is a general purpose machining centre with two spindle/tooling system tupes. The CAT 40 tooling system uses an 8,000 rpm motor and the CAT 50 tooling unit uses a 6,000 rpm motor. MC Machinery says it performs well in a variety of applications such as fixtures, mould base and secondary operations. The series is equipped with coolant-thru-spindle preparation and an M70 Mitsubishi controller. This machine can alos be equipped with a ZF gearbox to achieve four times the torque of a standard motor, claims MC Machinery.

The DV Series is a general purpose machine, featuring a 15,000 rpm direct drive spindle and CAT 40 tooling. It can accommodate smaller cutting tools for more intricate milling work, and is a popular choice among job shops because of its range o fapplications. The series also comes with coolant-thru-spindle preparation and an M70 Mitsubishi controller.

The DM Series features a 20,000 rpm HSK-A63 spindle, which features a more rigid and accurate tooling system. This series excels in close-tolerance work and is ideal for applications in mould and die. The 32-position automatic tool changer provides better tool life management and boosts machine productivity. An M720 Mitsubishi controller, linear scales, and roller guideways are standard features.

The SV Series is built with a heavy-duty box way construction in the X, Y, and Z axes, ideal for rigidity and stability in large parts. The machine excels in maximum material removal with its ability to handle bigger tools. The machine features a 10,000 rpm spindle, CAT 50 tooling, and hand-scraped box way guides, for years of accuracy and durability. Like the other series, these machines come with coolant-thru-spindle preparation, an M70 Mitsubishi controller, and optional ZF gearbox for higher torque.

The TV Series of drill/tap machines feature 24,000 rpm high speed spindle driven by a 5 hp motor. BBT-30 dual contact tooling delivers extra rigidity and better Z depth control during operation. The fast and simple, two-second tool changes provide multi-axis machining all in one setup. A bi-directional tool magazine is driven through advanced PLC software which is achieved through the M70 Mitsubishi controller. A CAM-driven tool magazine allows rotation and accuracy and smooth motion even while large tools are loading.
