CNC Vertical Lathe for High-Speed Turning

"Featuring high-speed turning in a fast, powerful and compact machine, the high-performance KAAST V-Turn CNC series brings efficiency to the shop floor," said a company spokesperson.

KAAST will demonstrate the V-Turn CNC 550 vertical lathe featuring 22" swing, FANUC 0i-TF and 25 HP. Offering live tooling, C-axis and Renishaw HPRA tool setter, this vertical lathe has a two-stage transmission with high torque for heavy machining even in tough materials. It features a 12-tool turret, coolant system, chip conveyor and automatic lubrication.

Also running at the show will be the A 11 L and the D Mini KAAST VF-Mills. These VMCs match fast tool change with a 10,000 RPM CAT40 spindle. Running the newest generation of the FANUC 0i control systems, these feature robust and solid base frames to provide rigidity, stability and vibration-free work even with heavy duty cutting.

The C-Turn series engine lathes feature hardened, precision-ground guideways, low noise and a universal gearbox. This allows for precise cutting with no need to change gears. KAAST will be displaying manual and CNC versions of the C-Turn, with the CNC version showcasing conversational programming with the Fagor 8055i/A TC control panel that does not require the user to have prior CNC programming or G-code background.

Visitors are invited to examine the DMV 380 VS CNC teach style bed mill designed for small series production and prototyping. Featuring a drilling and milling head with quiet V-belt drive operation, infinitely variable spindle speed control is paired with automatic spindle sleeve feed (three steps with micrometer depth stop). Running the Fagor 8055i/A control, operators can upload existing files, write at the machine or operate manually.

For grinding, the F-Grind AH on display in the KAAST booth features a grinding spindle with heavy-duty, preloaded angular contact ball bearings and automatic feed in XYZ. High positioning accuracy of the vertical axis is realized by AC servo motor in conjunction with recirculating ball screw. The demonstration will showcase the AD5 NC control programmable feed of the vertical axis, automatic cross feed of the table, control of the number of passes and various pre-written grinding cycles.

The HBS A 230 will be cutting 9" pipe during the show, demonstrating this fully automatic horizontal band saw's "set it up and walk away" ability. Featuring automatic material feed and a blade breakage sensor, this saw can safely cut for hours without operator intervention.

Angle and plate rolls, presses and ironworkers will also be on display.
