TDT Technology Introduces 'One Hit' Wonder

Added to MTDCNC by TDT Machine Tools Ltd on 18 March 2016

Exceptional productivity levels and one-hit machining are just two of the many benefits that you can now achieve with the new Force One FCL-S Series of turning centre from Kafo. Now available in the UK from TDT Technology, the FCL-S Series is a range of single spindle slant bed turning centres with a tooling turret that enables the processing of complex parts.

The 45 degree slant bed machine has linear guides on the X and Z axes that demonstrate outstanding precision and repeatability levels. Furthermore, the spindle is transmitted through the pulley and spindle motor to enhance its high speed credentials and precision. The FCL-S Series has three models in the range,  the FCL-20, the FCL-25 and the FCL-30.

The FCL-20 has a 480mm swing over bed and a maximum turning diameter of 280mm whilst the larger FCL-25 has a swing over bed of 600mm and a maximum turning diameter of 300mm. The largest FCL-30 machine has a spacious swing over bed of 630mm and a maximum turning diameter of 442mm. All three machines have a working length up to 1m.

The construction of the machine consists of a meehanite casting, high performance servo motors that are directly coupled to the pre-tensioned ball screws and linear guideways. As standard, the FCL Series has a coolant pump, programmable tailstock, hydraulic power unit, Fanuc CNC control and air conditioned electrical cabinet. The optional extras include a part cut-off detector, bar feeding unit, a tool pre-setter and parts catcher that all combine to deliver a complete turning solution for the end user at an affordable price.

The three machines have a respective bar diameter capacity of 52, 65 and 77mm with a spindle bore of 61, 77 and 90mm. The FCL Series can achieve a spindle speed of 25- 4200 on the smallest machine and 10 to 3500rpm on the largest machine with the option of a high torque 10-2800rpm spindle. The spindle motor generates 9/11kW on the FCL-20 whilst the FCL-25 has an output of 11/15kW and the FCL-30 variant generates 15/18.5kW. This combination of power, precision and flexibility makes the new Kafo turning line something that is a force to be reckoned with. For further details, contact TDT Technology.
