Absolute Machine Tools Debuts New Vertical Turning Center

The You Ji YV-600E2T Vertical Turning Center is designed for large lot-size machining of big aluminum wheels or similar parts. This compact, high-precision, heavy-duty machine is designed to operate as a stand-alone machining cell or to be integrated with other machines to form a complete flexible manufacturing system. Maximum swing is 33.4 in. and the maximum turning diameter is 29.5 in.

YV-600E2T_WebThe rigid vertical column and base are Meehanite castings, heavily ribbed for reduced thermal distortion and vibration dampening.  The X and Z axes employ roller-type linear guideways. By using specially designed sliding covers inside the machine, chip problems are virtually eliminated.  All ways are completely enclosed while a forced lubrication system assures high-precision production.  The high-speed way systems enable rapid traverse rates of 787 inches-per-minute.  The precision “Class 3” ballscrews are driven directly by the servo motors, eliminating belts or gears for more exact machining.

The spindle construction is of a heavy-duty design incorporating double roller bearings as well as 45-degree angular contact thrust bearings. The spindle is also protected from coolant contamination.  The NN-type spindle bearings are used to endure high centrifugal loads as well as high spindle loads.  The 100-HP high-torque spindle motor drives the spindle via belts, providing plenty of power for heavy-duty machining and the high speeds necessary for fine finishing.

Twin 6-position hydraulic vertical hex turrets are mounted on the rams with tough bolt-on tooling.  Turret index time is 0.8 seconds and shortest route tool selection. Chip control is excellent as chips and coolant wash directly into the standard caterpillar-type right side discharge chip conveyor.  The machine’s interior is sloped toward its front, directing the chips and coolant to the conveyor running across the front of the machine.  A chip wash system aids in chip removal.

The Fanuc OiT-F control is standard for ease of use and reliability.  Other CNC controls are available upon request.
