 Email this Article

The high-speed linear guide and boxway vertical machining center (VMC) line from the company is said to achieve unsurpassed performance and value for high-speed and heavy-duty machining. The AF series has an extremely rigid cast iron base and column, providing long-term accuracy and durability in high-speed machining of die/mold applications. The direct-drive 12,000 rpm, temperature-controlled spindle is paired with the powerful Fanuc 18i-MB control to meet the demands of complex die/mold applications. The BM series, with 6,000 to 8,000 rpm geared headstock, is said to be ideal for heavy-duty applications in ferrous materials such as cast iron and steel. The rigid iron base is paired with four Y-axis box guideways to eliminate saddle overhang while the extra-wide column expands machining capability. Many high-torque and direct-drive spindle configurations are available in CAT 40 or CAT 50 tapers. Toyoda Machinery
