New VCenter-AX800 5 axis vertical machining centre

Added to MTDCNC by Victor CNC Ltd on 25 September 2014

Victor CNC has now extended its already extensive line of machine tools with the introduction of the new VCenter-AX800 vertical machining centre. Taking flexibility to a new level, the new AX800 incorporates a swivelling head B-axis and a C-axis rotary table (800mm diameter) to fully facilitate 5-axis machining of large parts up to 1m diameter.

With rigidity and precision built into every aspect of the new VCenter-AX800, the 5-axis offering has a C-axis table that is clamped at high torque (3433Nm) for heavy cutting whilst the B-axis swivel head includes a hirth coupling with 1° increment that further enhances the rigidity to deliver 4 + 1 axis machining capability.

Incorporating a rotary table that is built next to the fixed table, this innovative Vcenter-AX800 is equipped with a swivel head on the travelling column to implement 5-axis machining on large parts. Furthermore, with a Rollercam-drive® mechanism for both rotary axes, the AX800 ensures sufficient rigidity for 4+1 axis heavy machining with high rotation compared to less robust conventional worm gear mechanism machines.

The robust new machine has a BBT40 taper spindle that is fed by a 40 tool ATC that has a twin arm type ATC. This tooling set-up performs quick and reliable tool changeovers beyond most machine tools and a 60 tool magazine is available as an optional extra.

The B-axis of the new AX800 has a 15000rpm spindle that delivers a power output of 22kW for conducting heavy machining processes that optimises material removal rates. To support heavy machining, the AX800 has large diameter ball screws coupled with the servo motor to maximise rigidity and performance levels. What's more, the AX800 has a roller gear mechanism that minimizes the backlash and guarantees high accuracy at an arbitrary angle.

With regard to flexibility, the new AX800 provides a whole host of options that include 8+1 hydraulic/pneumatic ports to direct the power through C-axis and pallet for multiple point clamping and air sealing detection to assure clamping quality. In addition, the VCenter provides the option of a chip conveyor, through spindle coolant, linear scales/angular encoders, auto tool length measurement, auto part measurement and also a selection of control units that include the Fanuc 0i, 32i and the 31i control or the Heidenhain TNC620 and 640 control units.
