VERTICAL MACHINING CENTERS


Value Is In How Efficiently Parts Are Machined The new Feeler HV-800 vertical machining center


from Methods Machine Tools Inc. (Sudbury, MA) was recently featured at Methods’ Advanced Milling and High Speed Machining Expo. The event allowed attendees to explore advanced techniques in hard milling and high- speed machining and ways to optimize existing machine tools for higher productivity and profitability. The HV-800 was machining high-quality demo parts at the event. “Customers typically expect quality parts of this caliber off a high-end machining center,” said Dale Hedberg, Feeler product manager at Methods. Construction of the Feeler HV-Series features a


reinforced, cross-ribbed column structure and no counter- balance weight design that dramatically improves torsional torque resistance and reduces low frequency resonance for optimal stability in high-speed machining. “The new design delivers 30% increased rigidity for higher accuracy, better workpiece finishes, and less waste,” said Hedberg.


At the Methods’ event, attendees gained an insight into how small process improvements, when coupled with the highest precision machining technologies, can significantly increase performance and cost savings. Dale Mickelson, specialist die/mold and precision machining of Methods Machine Tools, presented results of his research into the effectiveness of high-feed cutters, particularly in handling difficult-to-machine aerospace materials like Inconel 718. Keys to success include using the latest trochoidal circular interpolation machining strategies and spindle interfaces that deliver the necessary rigidity. His research included the comparison of the spindle interfaces, including CAT, BT, BIG PLUS, and HSK and shrink-fit toolholders as well as the effectiveness of thermal control achieved by cooled spindles like that of the Yasda PX-30i.


Scientific Cutting Tools


This is What Power and Precision Looks Like


Single profile thread mills (SPTM) are made from premium submicron grade carbide. The tools cut internal or external threads in a range of thread sizes with minimal side cutting pressure. Options include ACME, stub ACME, UN, and metric.

Dave Lucius, Methods Machine VP-sales and marketing discussed the true cost of ownership and how shops can benefit, as an example, from one high-precision multi-pallet five-axis single-spindle machining center vs. three lesser priced machining centers. The Yasda five-axis PX-30i with a self-contained, 33-pallet multi-pallet stocker system delivers impressive ROI by reducing the single greatest drain on profitability—the cost of labor. Precision five-axis machin- ing reduces part handling, results in superior geometric accuracy, better part finish, and increased tool life for shops that adequately plan for it. “Five-axis machining centers continue to be among the fastest growing machine tool categories,” said Lucius. “When you add multi-pallet capability, and 314 tools to these five-axis workcenters, they now deliver unmatched machining and throughput capabilities for shops.”

Mori (Hoffman Estates, IL) is the Celos control platform. DMG Mori’s new HMI (Human Machine Interface) gives users the ability to monitor and control their processes. The Celos control platform also incorporates many new features that take advantage of the Industry 4.0 initiative including machine diagnosis, remote monitoring and data acquisition. This technology applies to almost all of DMG Mori’s machining platforms, including three-axis, five-axis, lathes and mill turns, as well as its Ultrasonic and Lasertec (Shape, PowerDrill and 3D) platforms. This also includes large machining platforms for molds that are 2, 3 and even 6 m in size.
