Heavy Duty Ultra Precision Linear Roller Way VMC

Sharp Industries has introduced to its Sharp SVL series linear guide way vertical machining centers, the SVL-4525 model designed to provide high speed machining with optimal productivity.

This model is built with linear roller guideways that can produce high precision products under heavy machining conditions. All structural components are made of Meehanite casting with vibration dampening properties. Internal ribs running throughout each section of the casting ensures machine stability under various cutting conditions. Precision hand scraping of each section assure long term accuracy. The machines are equipped with FANUC controls and drives.

"We had no issues for 6,400 hours of operations since day one," said one satisfied customer. "Spindle speed was set at 12k, operating 24/7 making our molds. Our supervisor stated that Sharp Model SVL-4525 cuts better than the more expensive competitor's small double column VMC that sits next to it. We experienced no backlash problems."

Sharp Model SVL-4525 features:

  • High precision, heavy duty VMC for mold work
  • 45" x 25" x 20.1" travel
  • 4 guideways; 2 linear roller guideways plus 2 support ways
  • Massive fully ribbed column and base castings
  • Net Wt. 18,260 lbs.
  • 15,000 RPM, CAT40, direct drive spindle
  • FANUC Oi-MD control
  • 1,417 IPM (36 M/mm) rapid traverse.
