High Precision, Accuracy, & Repeatability

The lightweight and highly rigid column structure ensures a low starting load and quick response of the Z-axis.

Additionally, we design the main spindle and related components with a 1.25 safety factor. Which increases to 1.6 to 2.0 during normal machining work at 8000-10000 RPM, providing exceptionally high impact resistance.

Solid Structure & Lightweight Motion Components

  • The moving components of the 3-axis are lightweight and crafted from Meehanite forged material, ensuring rapid response times.
  • A precise ceramic bearing mount enhances assembly accuracy.
  • Furthermore, the system incorporates SCHNEEBERGER linear rails and top-end customized HIWIN/THK ball screws for optimal performance.

Advanced Machine Structure Design

Employing a Box-in-Box design and a large-span structure, this machine attains both low weight and high rigidity, ensuring optimal performance.

Compared to competitor models, it weighs 20% less.

Moreover, the central structure boasts a large O-shape design, significantly enhancing both vertical and horizontal rigidity.

Structure Design & Moving Components

  • Crafted from lightweight Meehanite forge material, the moving components of the 3-axis ensure rapid response times.
  • Precision ceramic bearing mounts enhance assembly accuracy. The system complements this with the inclusion of SCHNEEBERGER Linear Rail and high-end customized HIWIN/THK Ball Screws for optimal performance.

Fastest Speed Auto Tool Changer

  • ATC (Auto Tool Changer): We designed our innovative short-arm tool changer for lightning-fast tool changes. Minimizing inertia force and reducing impact on the spindle.
  • Speed Performance:

    • Tool to Tool Change: 0.95 Seconds
    • Chip to Chip Change: 2.95 Seconds

High-Volume 20-Pocket Tool Magazine

Unlike traditional funnel-shaped tool magazines with a maximum of 16 pockets, our innovative design features a 20-pocket high-volume tool magazine. This allows for increased processing flexibility and efficiency.
