VARIAXIS i-1050

Process: 5-Axis, Multi-Tasking

MACHINE DESCRIPTION:

The VARIAXIS i-1050 Vertical Machining Center has advanced multiple-surface, simultaneous 5-axis machining capabilities for accurately processing large complex parts in single setups. It is also well suited for highly productive thin workpiece machining. The machine’s rigid 50-taper milling spindle is available in standard, high-speed and high-torque versions to meet a wide range of application requirements in industries such as aerospace, heavy construction and energy. A trunnion unit supports the rigid tilting/rotary table on both ends, a design that does not interfere with the milling operations. Roller gear cams on the swiveling A-axis and a direct-drive motor powering the rotary C-axis ensure high-speed, high-accuracy machining performance.

MACHINE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Handles parts measuring up to 49.21" in diameter and 35.43" high and weighing up to 4,409 pounds
  • No. 50 spindle available in 5,000/10,000/15,000 rpm speeds
  • BT, BBT, HSK-T100 and CAPTO C8 spindle connections available
  • Trunnion-style tilt table reduces setup and change-out times
  • High-speed rapid traverse rates and rotary axes indexing
  • Tool storage capacities from 30 to 120 tools offer high flexibility
  • Optional two-pallet changer increases spindle utilization
  • Integrates with PALLETECH System for lights-out operations
