Vertical Machining Center Features 30-hp Spindle.

YCI Supermax, Santa Fe Springs, California, has introduced the FV105A vertical machining center for high-production job shop and high-precision applications.

The mid-size vertical machining center features a high-speed 20,000-rpm, 30-hp spindle, allowing it to perform both rough cutting and finished cutting at the same spindle. With its high-speed cutting feed rates, the machining center can cut a range of material from aluminum to titanium. In addition, the machine's speed and versatility can provide a significant increase in production by cutting the cycle time in half.

The center's unique heavy-duty body structure combines both linear and box ways for speed and rigidity. The X and Y axes feature new THK NR linear guide ways, while the Z axis features hardened and ground box ways. This construction allows for a higher level of precision. The rugged Meehanite body casting and precision-hardened and ground pre-loaded ball screws are direct coupled to the servo motors for increased reliability.

Additional standard equipment includes oil/air mist spindle bearings lubrication, a full alphanumeric keyboard, spindle and cutting air blast system, full chips and coolant guards, and a swivel control panel for ease of operation.

The center also features a 24-tool dual swing arm ATC system and a bi-directional, random access tool magazine for optimum efficiency. The product provides a 40 x 20 x 24-in, work envelope and extra wide saddle and machine base. Table positioning accuracy is [+ or -]0.00016 in. with [+ or -]0.00008 in. repeatability.
