Mitsui Seiki Vertical machining centre offers high accuracy
USA – Mitsui Seiki has added to its Vertex 550-5X line of machines new features, options and configurations within the series, said to offer enhanced accuracy and precision.
This new series, comprising six models, includes the company’s Vertex 55X II. Its linear axes strokes are (X, Y, Z) 550 mm x 600 mm x 500 mm.
According to Mitsui Seiki, 15,000, 25,000 and 30,000 rpm spindles are available in the Vertex 55X II, with the option of a HSK-80 taper spindle connection for heavy-duty machining. The machine line includes configurations based on table sizes with a diameter from 225 to 400 mm. A choice of rotary axis drive system – high torque geared type or direct drive – allows for optimum machine configuration, Mitsui notes.
Additionally, this line is available in a B-series version, that has a high speed 5-axis VMC for turbine blade production, used in aerospace and energy industries. High performance coolant and chip handling systems are available. Automation systems can be integrated for on-machine inspection.
The Vertex 55X II geometric accuracy is monitored in temperature-controlled factory environments. The machine features a cast iron bed and its box-in-box design offers rigidity.
