VMC Offers Accuracy, More Productivity

Chevalier's new 5-axis VMC, a 40-taper, high-speed vertical machining center (VMC), features 5-axis simultaneous or 4+1 axis applications. The standard QP5X-400 machine is integrated with a 2-axis, 12.6" trunnion table. The machine is designed for high-speed, high-precision and high-productivity machining and is suitable for the automotive, aerospace, medical and moldmaking industries.

Heavy-duty construction offers high rigidity, with major parts of the machine constructed of high-quality Meehanite cast iron, offering increased stability. The pre-tensioned Class C3 ball screws are used in all three axes. All servomotors are directly coupled to ball screws, increasing movement sensitivity while reducing backlash.

Features of the QP5X-400 include:

  • Trunnion table size: 12.6"
  • FANUC 0i-MF (4+1) control (31i 5-axis opt.)
  • Spindle motor: 25 HP
  • Table load: 220 lbs.
  • Workpiece dimensions: 15.7" x 13.7"
  • Spindle taper: #40, BIG PLUS
  • Tool capacity: 30+1 tools
  • Spindle speed: 10K RPM (12K, 15K opt.).
