High-speed five-axis VMC

The show will mark the UK launch of the D200Z five-axis vertical machining centre from Japanese machine tool builder, Makino, which is represented exclusively in the UK and Ireland by NCMT (Hall 19, Stand 130). Visitors to the stand will be able to see the machine cycling through a reflector mould program.

The 30,000 rpm spindle and integral, direct-drive table provide quick, precise, full five-axis machining. This capability combines with high-speed SGI.5 motion control software in the Makino Professional 6 CNC to maintain tight tolerances and high quality requirements, and ensure accurate blending of 3D surfaces, even during simultaneous five-axis motion. Designed to maximise working volume and load capacity, the compact D200Z accommodates workpiece sizes up to 300 mm in diameter, 210 mm tall and weighing up to 75 kg.
