Y-Axis VTL for Energy Manufacturing

Shown is the Honor Seiki Y-Axis PL350CM with a 137" (3,500 mm) table that can swing and cut up to a 157" (4,000 mm) part.

Honor Seiki and CNC Systems, Inc. have announced a solution to help manufacture the more complex, accurate and ever-growing part sizes in a variety energy manufacturing applications.

"The real beauty of the Honor Seiki Y-Axis VTL machine is the ability to combine difficult operations and reduce manufacturing costs on large complex parts. On a recent visit to a customer, we analyzed their parts and were able to reduce their operations from six set-ups to two. The proposed solution will allow their parts to be made at a lower cost with less handling to help them be more competitive," a company spokesperson explained.

One solution is the Honor Seiki Y-Axis PL350CM with a 137" (3,500 mm) table that can swing and cut up to a 157" (4,000 mm) part. The PL Series starts at a 63" (1,600 mm) table and can go as large as a 196" (5,000 mm) table.

The standard tool changer on the right hand side of the machine has 16 tool stations, which can be increased to 24 or 40 stations. This PL350CM has an additional 60 tool stations on the left-hand side that can be expanded up to 200 tool stations using CAPTO or KM Tools. The left side tool changer allows automatic tool changing into the optional 90 degree (right angle head) or into special turning or boring heads for special applications.

All of the toolholders are locked into the large heavy-duty RAM by the patented Honor Seiki Solid Lock tooling system that allows for longer and heavier tools to be used with greater rigidity and accuracy.

The PL Series with the standard FANUC CNC control has the following capabilities: rigid tapping, vertical turning, vertical, horizontal and Y-axis milling, C and Y-axis table movement, quick change chuck/pallets, grinding, dual rams with additional Z-axis travel and open height. Tighter accuracies can also be achieved by adding optional scale feedback in all axes with tool setting and part probes.

"CNC Systems would be happy to meet with you to analyze your applications and send you a product catalog and video for your review. In the effort to support the customers better, CNC Systems will be promoting this product through its ever growing, full servicing distributor network," said the spokesperson.

Parts, service and support are already in place for Honor Seiki VTLs along with these other products that are imported by CNC Systems: AVEREX Horizontal Machining Centers, Vision Wide 3-, 4- and 5-axis/turn-mill, double column bridge and gantry mills some with W-axis, APEC 5-axis linear motor gantry mills and Ares Seiki drill tap machines.
