5-Axis Mill Offers Enhanced Speed and Stability

GF Machining Solutions' Mikron MILL S 400 U high-speed full simultaneous 5-axis machine is designed to provide high levels of reliability, traceability and accuracy. It is engineered for mold and die machining as well as post-processing parts and molds produced with additive manufacturing systems.

The MILL S 400 U gets its processing speed from available 28,000 RPM (HSK-E32) and 42,000 RPM (HSK-E40) spindles, along with a fast rapid traverse rate of 2,401 IPM (61 m/min). Using the latest liquid-cooled, direct-drive motor technology, the machine also achieves speeds of up to 250 RPM on its rotational axis that swivels in a range of +/-110°.

For 24/7 unattended machining, the MILL S 400 U includes a pallet changer with 18 pallets. The machine's automation potential is further enhanced through an automatic table and workpiece cleaning system, efficient chip evacuation and the ability to measure parts from outside the work area as the machine continues working uninterrupted.

GF Machining Solutions equipped the MILL S HSM 400 U with a Heidenhain control system and smart machining modules that provide advanced levels of monitoring, which is especially critical to the production of medical implants and equipment. The system allows the machine to automatically check and evaluate tools and workpieces, inspect tools for breakage and perform part measurements. Additionally, the smart machine modules automatically monitor spindle vibration, calibrate machine geometry and transmit process status messages to an operator's cell phone.

Programmable standby/warm-up schedules can have the machine ready for performance as soon as the operator arrives. Once the machine starts, it controls ambient temperature drifts to deliver high precision over long run times. This thermostability allows manufacturers to produce high-quality finished parts with enhanced throughput.
