The machine is equipped with core-cooled ballscrews, support bearings and motor mounts as well as a core-cooled saddle design with Nano slideway to control machine thermal growth, providing sustained accuracy in long cycle time, complex geometry die/mold work.
The spindle features Makino’s unique, patented, core-cooling and under-race lubrication system, minimizing thermal distortion at high spindle speeds. Integrated construction of the spindle and drive motor rotor reduces vibration during high-speed operation. The V56i’s optimum axis layout and machine construction give you superior performance in a compact package. The axis layout is designed with no overhangs to ensure outstanding accuracy over the full range of axis travel. Painstakingly polished to a precision finish, the guideways are integrated with the machine to provide superior accuracy and rigidity.
The V56i vertical machining center incorporates a number of design features specifically designed to increase precision and maintain it for the long periods of time typical of most die and mold applications. With X- and Z-axes on the spindle and Y-axis under the table, the machine construction provides superior performance in a compact package. Designed with no overhangs or unsupported areas, the V56i delivers outstanding accuracy over the full range of machine. Painstakingly polished to a precision finish, the guideways are integral to the machine castings to provide superior stiffness, rigidity and precision. To ensure consistent accuracy over long cycle times, the V56i machine is equipped with the following features:
The V56i spindle features Makino’s unique core-cooling and under-race lubrication system, minimizing thermal distortion at high spindle speeds. Integrated construction of the spindle and drive motor rotor reduces vibration during high-speed operation. The spindle design also incorporates the following:
In addition, the V56i is outfitted with the Makino Professional 5 control, utilizing a Windows CE operating system to provide a stable, secure platform with reliable performance on the NC side, while providing an operator-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). This latest generation machine tool control offers large color touch-sensitive, on-screen, menu-driven applications. Icons provide “hot links“ and quick access to critical information that may be required by the operator. In addition, the new control platform provides all of the functions typical of a PC (cut, paste, copy, find, replace, etc.) that are rarely available on a machine tool control. Advanced data management technology and Makino’s proprietary, next-generation Super Geometric Intelligence (SGI.4) servo control deliver the lowest cycle times achievable by reducing machining cycle times on dies, complex cavities and cores by as much as 40 percent when compared to most other control technologies.
