Contour machining for complex molds

Chatter-free cutting, agility for high-speed/hard-milling, and accuracies for tight-tolerance blends and matches typical of complex, 3D contoured geometry associated with tool production are delivered in the latest vertical machining center offering from Makino (Mason, OH).

“The F-Series has been built from the ground up for speed and precision,” states William Howard, Makino’s vertical machining product manager. “It integrates 8-mm fine-pitch ball screws and 0.05-micron scale feedback.” The servo systems are tuned for peak performance and together these features reduce variability for hours of continuous, tight-tolerance machining.

The F-Series consists of two models: the F3 and the F5. Both the machines have a table load capacity of 1432 lb and a 30-tool magazine provides capacity for a wide array of tooling.

The F-Series utilizes the Makino Professional 5 Control and next-generation Super Geometric Intelligence (SGI.4) software. —[email protected]
