24K high torque spindle motors prove popular on FANUC ROBODRILLS

Added to MTDCNC by FANUC on 19 May 2015

With sales significantly growing for its ROBODRILL line of machining centres, FANUC is attributing much of this success to engineers awareness of the benefits of the ROBODRILL 24,000rpm high torque spindle motors. The latest models of FANUC ROBODRILL machine tools are delivering a combination of speed, flexibility and power through a BT30 spindle taper that is beyond the realms of competitor machine tools. The benefit is cycle time reductions of up to 40%.

Until recently the new high torque 24,000rpm spindle unit has been provided as an optional extra. However, with more manufacturers realising the potential of gains from the high powered spindle motor, more machines are being sold with the high speed spindle as standard. The extremely robust spindle units are providing end users with exceptional productivity gains around the clock with no restriction on how many hours a day/week the spindle is operational. This is unlike most machine tool manufacturers that can provide high speed spindle motors, but provide guidelines on running hours due to the fear of spindle burn-out. The FANUC ROBODRILL range delivers relentless spindle power and speed that is non-stop - giving the customer the option of no down-time.

However, the benefits don't end with the high torque spindle motor. Ideal for the production of small to medium sized parts, the ROBODRILL is available in 3 to 5-axis configurations. To meet this flexibility and speed, the ROBODRILL is the 'best in class' with its 54m/min rapid feed rates and 1.5G acceleration. This cuts non-production times to a bare minimum and ensures that the end user is optimising their productivity. Not only does the FANUC ROBODRILL offer these astounding productivity levels, its rigid base and high quality configuration give the end user a high precision machine tool with a repeatability of +/-2microns.
