2D CNC Machinery 5-axis VMC uses rigidity to maximise use of power available
UK – The highly rigid, tilting-head design of the Wele UA 2590 5-axis vertical machining centre (VMC) is able to maximise material removal with 4,950 Nm of torque available from the drive to the swivelling A-axis head, complemented by 7,960 Nm in the rotational B-axis, the supplier says.
Both axes have +/- 40° of movement.
In addition, to maximise machining efficiency, the table is supported by a highly rigid, solid Meehanite cast base carrying four hardened and ground boxway slide units and the Y-axis travel powered via a dual-drive feed system. As a result, this is said to significantly increase the levels of rigidity and accuracy while minimising the onset of vibration under heavy machining or interrupted sequences.
