80K - 5-axis Heidenhain-controlled machine with 17 kW, 10K spindle

80K - 5-axis Heidenhain-controlled machine with 17 kW, 10K spindle

Added to MTDCNC by Ajax on 06 October 2014

Targeting the single operational trend by users in vertical machining centre technology, now available from Ajax Machine Tools International for under £80,000 is a 5-axis, high specification Heidenhain-controlled machine with 17 kW, 10,000 revs/min spindle and chiller, a 200 mm diameter rotary/tilt table and 24 tool magazine for under £80,000.  Significant in the installation support of the accuracy and repeatability of the machine in production is the on-site Renishaw ball bar and laser calibration to ensure the machine specification is compliant following shipment.

Available through its Lymington, Hants headquarters, the structure of the machine is based on heavily ribbed high grade iron castings carrying high speed, linear roller guideways on each axis with direct drive motors that enable positioning at up to 48 m/min.  

The Ajax V700-5X has a table size of 800 mm by 400 mm and axis travels of 700 mm in X, 400 mm in Y and 650 mm in Z. In order to be application specific, a 12,000 revs/min spindle with 20 bar high pressure through coolant supply is available as an option.

The machine is controlled via Heidenhain TNC 620 with its brushless main spindle and axis drive motor and encoder package which provides a system resolution of + 0.001 mm.  However, of significant importance is the on-site installation serviced provided by Ajax whereby Renishaw ballbar and laser calibration is carried out to qualify accuracy is within the machine specification.

The 200 mm rotary table is able to carry loads up to 80 kg and rotate at up to 33 revs/min.  Rotational index accuracy is within + 15 arc sec, tilt accuracy within + 30 arc sec and repeatability within 4 arc sec.

The bi-directional column mounted 24 tool magazine will accept tools up to 90 mm diameter by 300 mm long with a tool-to-tool time of 1.6 secs.  Included in the specification package is a complete 200 litre coolant system with oil skimmer and spiral swarf conveyor.

Further options available include flat type chip conveyor, Heidenhain TT140 table probe for tool measurement and TS 640 3D touch trigger probe, Renishaw tool measurement and auto-measure system.  In addition Delcam programming software and a starter tool pack of 14 mixed BT40 holders, pull studs and collet set can be specified.(www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtaaPJnskW4&feature=youtube_gdata_player)
