Enshu GE Series Horizontal Machining Centers
5,000 Hours Mean Time Between Failure – MTBF
Enshu Horizontal Machining Centers offer full stroke accuracy and repeatability through superior design and thermal stability. Non-cutting time is reduced through faster rapid traverse rates, axis acceleration, and tool changing & indexing. Best of all, every component of these machines are engineered to ensure year after year of reliable operation, even under the most grueling conditions, allowing Enshu to be the most reliable horizontal machining centers in the world!
The unmatched features of Enshu GE Series machines include:
- 5000 Hours Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF): That means 24/7 operation for a year without failure.
- Shorter Mean Time to Repair (MTTR): Repair work is simplified for short repair times in the event of a failure.
- Blazing speed: 3543”/min rapids in all 3 linear axes. Simply the fastest. Reduce non-cutting times by 20% compared to 2362”/min rapid machines.
- High power, high response spindles: 50HP integral spindle motor accelerates from 0-15000RPM in 1.9 seconds.
- High Precision: Refrigerated and temperature controlled ballscrews, motor mounts, and spindles.
Enshu offers the latest in state-of-the-art high speed horizontal machining centers. This machine will exceed the demands of any manufacturer with high volume, high precision machining needs. The compact size consumes very little valuable floor space while the blazing speed will deliver more parts per hour than competitive machines costing thousands more.
The machine is an XY traveling column type design where the pallet moves in Z. The APC unit, located in front of the machine, provides easy access and slashes idle time. The APC is a rotary-type pallet changer, and it exchanges the pallets in only 7 seconds. For pallet rotation in the machining envelope, the standard .001-degree full B axis precisely indexes the pallet with only a 1.2 second 90-degree index time and 1.65 second 180-degree index time. A 4-cone hydraulic clamping mechanism with air seat confirmation is used to clamp the pallet in place for excellent repeatability.
Enshu machines feature an ultra-rigid Meehanite cast iron frame with an advanced 3 point leveling system. Ballscrews are class 3 with a double nut pre-loaded and pre-tensioned design allowing a blazing rapid traverse rate. Furthermore, high speed acceleration drastically reduces non-cut time (X,Y,Z acc/dec of 1.0G). Ballscrews are drilled through to allow chilled fluid to circulate through them as well as the motor mounts. The chilled motor mounts dissipate any heat generated by the servo motors.
Standard rear discharge chip removal system includes twin high volume chip flushing chutes and premium lift-up chip conveyor. The chip conveyor is equipped with a drum filter, magnetic separator, and cyclonic filtration and easily handles chip types from aluminum fines to cast iron sludge.
The Fanuc 31iM-B Plus control is standard that provides reliable state-of-the-art controllers and the latest in servo and spindle technology. The Enshu HMI provides easy to use screens for set-up, troubleshooting, and machine maintenance.
