Double Column Machining Center Targeted at Aerospace Industry

YCM has introduced the AERO series of next generation high performance double column multi-axis DCV2018A/B-5AX machining centers. "The new YCM DCV AERO series is carefully engineered with high speed and efficiency to handle the demands specific to the aerospace industry," said a company spokesperson.

The DCV2018A-5AX features an HSK-A63 with 18,000 RPM spindle putting out 94 HP (70 kW). The 1,181 IPM (30 m/min) rapid feedrate on all three X, Y and Z axes give optimal axial performance.

"A powerful Z-axis direct drive motor with no counter balance provides highly responsive, precise and backlash-free movement that greatly improves the finishing surface," said a company spokesperson. "The direct coupled drive on X-axis provides 50% speed increase, resulting in faster acceleration." The table is equipped with 8,800 lb. (4,000 kg.) load capacity and measures 78.8" x 59" (2,000 x mm 1,500 mm). An optional 120 ATC unit is available as well as a 250 mm Z-axis riser for greater daylight between the spindle and table top.

A reinforced double-column structure with smooth operation and low vibration is designed to enable better finishing and extend tool life. The internal double-A type ribbed-bed design offers full support for the table, which allows the force to be evenly distributed to the foundation. Roller linear guideways on all three axes and multiple oversized slider blocks provide improved cutting characteristic. The Y-axis is designed with a large span in horizontal and vertical directions in order to withstand the headstock weight and machining force that promote optimal cutting conditions.

The 5-axis universal head is equipped with a direct-drive motor with resolution of 0.001°. The machine also features cross roller bearings with high rotation accuracy that are capable of accommodating bearing loads in every direction, according to the company. A HEIDENHAIN encoder is standard for positioning the B- and C-axis headstock for high accuracy functionality. Additional features include a pneumatic positioning clamping system, over-travel protection and B-axis anti-drop function at power outage.
