Ajax Launches Robust New Bed Mill

Ajax Launches Robust New Bed Mill

Added to MTDCNC by Ajax on 06 February 2017

Ajax Machine Tools has now enhanced its portfolio of milling machines with the launch of the new AJCBM1000. The Ajax range of CNC bed milling machines has been designed to fill the gap between the machining centre and the tool room mill, and the new AJCBM1000 certainly fits the bill.

The structure of the new AJCBM1000 includes an extremely heavy duty bed casting and this build quality is also emphasised in the totally flexible turret head that is well suited for awkward cutting applications. The machine stability is noted in the near 4 tonne weight of the machine. By bringing the Ajax AJCBM1000 to market, the Hampshire based company is providing the industry with the perfect blend of a robust construction for more challenging tasks whilst offering exceptional precision levels and flexibility. With all the advantages of a full CNC machining centre, the AJCBM1000 can mill, drill, bore and tap without the confines of a fully enclosed work envelope. Furthermore, the machine can interpolate all 3-axis together for 3D milling applications.

As the UK Sales Manager at Ajax Machine Tools, Mr Ian Fenton says: "All our machines are Renishaw laser calibrated to demonstrate that every machine installed is calibrated to a precision level that is better than the +/-10 microns range that appears in some of our literature. In reality, the AJCBM1000 machines are closer to a 2 to 3 micron calibration level. A figure that is unheard of in the market where these machines are sold. We want to supply the best machines that we possibly can and the precision and build quality of the AJCBM1000 is unsurpassed in the bed milling segment."

Ideal for the job-shop and one-off or small batch production subcontractors, this CNC machine offers an excellent capacity range at a remarkably competitive price. The AJCBM1000 has 1000 x 500 x 500mm movement in X, Y and Z axes. Capable of supporting workpieces up to 800kg, the AJCBM1000 has an ISO40 spindle taper for heavy duty cutting whilst the 7.5Hp motor provides a high level of torque throughout the speed range of 50 to 4000rpm.

As with all machine tools from the Ajax stable, the AJCBM1000 is assembled at the company's Lymington headquarters where a team of experienced engineers provide a bespoke assembly service. This allows the customer to choose a range of options that includes the choice of CNC controls from Heidenhain, FANUC, Fagor or Siemens. Furthermore, Ajax can offer the AJCBM bed mills with the option of 8 different models ranging from 720 to 3000mm X-axis.
