This next-generation vertical 5-axis machining center features an innovative tilting-head spindle that decreases machining and polishing time drastically. The innovative tilting-head spindle enables the machine to achieve excellent surface quality and higher cutting feed using shorter tools on large-sized dies or molds.
With the concept of avoiding the tip of the ball end mill, quality surface finish of this center console mold can be achieved. On top of that, CAM programming steps and time can be reduced with 5 axis simultaneous toolpath. Intricate profiles at bottom regions can be machined easily without the need of extra EDM process.
Featuring V80S new generation 5-axis machining center, plastic mold for automotive is achieved within ±10µm on machine inspection, with well blended surface finish of Ra 0.2-0.4µm
Featuring FFCAM Makino CAM software, toolpaths for simultaneous 5-axis machining can be generated from 3-axis machining settings by simple one-click function, with automated interference avoidance control between tool and workpiece geometry.
With the flexibility of 5 axis simultaneous machining, cycle time can be greatly reduced by 25% as compared to 3 axis conventional process. The use of the shorter overhang tools will also promote rigidity and hence improving the surface finish of the mold.
