Five-Side and Full Five-Axis Machining



Makino offers its latest full 5-axis machine solution, the DA300 vertical machining center (VMC). The DA300 is designed to provide a blend of speed, precision and flexibility for complex part applications. Inspired by the best design characteristics from both vertical and horizontal machine platforms, the DA300 provides high productive capabilities for multi-axis workpieces in the smallest of machine footprints. These features make the DA300 suitable for single set-up, multi-side accessibility or full-contouring capability to quickly and efficiently tackle a wide variety of complex production part applications commonly found in industrial hydraulic and pneumatics elements, optical, electrical and semiconductor components, medical and dental products, die-cast parts, automotive components and aerospace parts.

"The DA300 integrates numerous features that increase productivity and efficiency by providing significant reductions in non-cut time," said Bill Howard, VMC Product Manager at Makino. "The machine provides a 50% reduction in spindle acceleration time, 15% reduction in positioning time, 40% reduction in tool-change chip-to-chip time and includes a standard vision-type broken-tool sensor (Vision B.T.S.) that optically checks tools outside the work zone to ensure tool consistency and part quality while simultaneously reducing non-cut time during tool changes by 80%. Individually, each element reduces part cycle time and increases productivity; however, when all of these time savings are combined, the result is a dramatic advantage in reduced part-production times and increased profitability."

The DA300 worktable is an integral, 340 mm by 300 mm table, accommodating workpiece sizes up to 450 mm in diameter, 400 mm tall and weighing 250 kg. The machine provides X-, Y- and Z-axis travels of 450 mm, 620 mm and 500 mm, respectively, at feedrates of up to 60,000 mm per minute. The direct-drive, motor-driven A-axis table offers 150° (+30 to -120) of tilt capability at 100 RPM. The rotary C-axis has full 360° rotational positioning at 150 RPM. Combined, these rotational axes have the range and speed necessary to achieve a high productivity in complex five-face or full 5-axis machining application. Equipped with scale feedback on all axes, the DA300 also offers a rare blend of speed and precision.

Wide-Ranging Spindle and Tooling Selection

The DA300 comes standardly equipped with a 20,000 RPM HSK-A63 spindle, delivering the speed and flexibility to tackle high-speed, highly productive machining of various workpiece materials, including aluminum, die-cast, steel and titanium. Acceleration and deceleration to and from full speed can be accomplished in a mere 1.5 seconds, reducing chip-to-chip times. Additionally, the machine's standard configuration includes a 60-position ring-type tool magazine with capacity for a wide variety of tooling as well as a Vision B.T.S. to verify the integrity of the tooling prior to use.

Intelligent Functionality

With a blend of stability of the FANUC hardware and Microsoft Windows Embedded OS, the state-of-the-art Professional 6 (Pro6) control helps move operators fluidly through machine set-up, empower them with easily accessible information and protect them with enhanced safety. Cycle-time saving and dynamic-control capabilities have been added to the control's GI functions to help lower costs per part.

Included is GI Drilling, a unique G-code drilling cycle that enables the spindle and tool to arc from hole to hole instead of following a square path. This simple change reduces non-cut time by as much as 15% on common hole-pattern drilling.

On complex 2-D paths, testing has reduced cut time up to 35%. While not every tool can make use of these functions, advanced motion control GI is proven to reduce overall cycle time by 3 to 8% in typical production components. This reduction saves substantial cost in both high-volume and low-volume production environments by reducing the number of spindles required and freeing up machine availability to take on more work.

Other intelligent machine functions include Inertia Active Control (IAC) designed to further speed up machine motions based upon system dynamic attributes and Collision Safe Guard (CSG), a real-time crash-avoidance feature that has a look-ahead function and takes real machining conditions into consideration to prevent collisions.

Automation for Greater Efficiency and Productivity

Designed to eliminate interferences in accessing the pallet, the DA300 can be configured using several approaches, including direct part handling as a stand-alone machine, manual handling using a table chuck and pallet, one of the workpiece pallet systems (WPS) or third-party automation using an EROWA chuck and pallet system. The DA300 can be field modified to add multiple pallet magazines, starting with a seven-pallet workpiece pallet system (WPS-7), and up to a 19-pallet workpiece pallet system (WPS-19). These configurations deliver high productive capabilities using minimal floor space.

"With Makino automation integration services, manufacturers are able to combat fierce pricing pressures from low-labor-cost countries by providing complete automated cells and systems. Whether demands call for simple machine tending or complex, high-volume robotic cells, Makino's automation integration services offer the equipment, skills and manpower necessary to reduce labor costs, increase throughput, ensure and enhance part quality, all while retaining the flexibility to adapt quickly to changing volumes or new parts," concluded the spokesperson.
