Re-introducing QuickTECH CNC Turning Centers, On Display by Absolute Machine Tools At PMTS 2017!
Absolute Machine Tools is pleased to re-introduce QuickTECH CNC turning centers to our product lineup! The i-60 Ultimate 10-axis twin spindle lathe with dual B-axes will be on display this week in their booth #655 at PMTS 2017.
These turning centers offer complete complex milling and machining capabilities of medium-diameter bar stock. The machine has a total of 10 axes and capacity for up to 49 tools, with two turning spindles, two milling spindles and two B-axes.
“These compact, versatile machines enable manufacturers to produce precise, complex parts quickly, with the added benefits of the accuracy and consistency that result from processing the parts on a single machine tool,” said Steve Ortner, president and owner of Absolute Machine Tools. “These machines offer 2 X/Y/Z tool posts with a full B-axis at an extremely affordable price. Our customers will win big with this lathe.”
The i-60 has a 60mm bar capacity for the 15 HP main spindle (60mm for the i-60). Both QuickTECH i-42 and i-60 models have 30 mm bar capacity for the 7.5 HP sub-spindle. The main- and sub-spindles of both models feature full continuous C-axes and are synchronized for fast accurate part transfer.
The QuickTECH machines’ comprehensive tooling system allows for incredible flexibility in part-making. A 4-axis (linear X,Y, Z and rotating B axes) gang-type vertical tool post serves each spindle. The main tool post has 6 O.D. turning tools, 5 I.D. turning tools, and 12 live tools. The sub tool post features 5 O.D. turning tools, 9 I.D. turning tools, and 12 live tools. Each tool post has a Y-axis for off-center milling operations. Live tools are mounted in a continuous 360˚ B-axis and powered by a 2 HP spindle motor. Rigid tapping is standard, as is the Kennametal KM-25 quick-change system that minimizes tool change time.
A matched Mitsubishi CNC system combines a Mitsubishi M830S control with a 15″ (275mm) LCD, Mitsubishi servomotors and amplifiers for top reliability and performance. A Fanuc OiT-F, 15″ (275mm) LCD system, also with matched motors and drives, is available. The machines come standard with a bar feeder interface, parts conveyor and catcher, chip conveyor, collet chucks and a 400 PSI coolant pump.
The machines’ construction allows for superior rigidity and precision, from the Meehanite iron casting of the frame and all major components to the large, 35mm Hiwin roller type linear guideways and double-anchored, pre-tensioned 32mm ballscrews.
Absolute Machine Tools is proud to be the exclusive distributor of QuickTECH machines in North America.
