All-in-One Automation Solution for VMCs

Kitamura Machinery will reveal a new all-in-one automation solution for its MedCenter5AX 5-axis simultaneous VMC at IMTS 2022 booth 339133, South Hall.

"Demonstrating the core qualities for lights-out production, the MedCenter5AX will feature a newly designed and field expandable 24-station automatic pallet changer with a high performance 120 tool ATC-all in a compact, space saving footprint, incorporating an unmanned machining development process for a multitasking machining environment that maximizes uptime," said a company spokesperson.

"Kitamura's versatile MedCenter5AX is a high precision, 5-axis machining center that offers accuracy and speed for expanded machining capability in the machining of small to medium highly complex, multi-sided parts in one set-up," added the spokesperson. "The machine's enhanced stiffness, flexibility and cutting capability make it an optimal choice for manufacturing precision parts for the medical, aerospace and telecommunications industries."

The MedCenter5AX comes equipped with a standard high speed 30,000 RPM 18 kW (24.5 HP) direct drive, HSK-E40 spindle offering high rigidity in spindle construction and function while allowing for fine finish capabilities. Suited for small diameter tools and hard milling, the MedCenter5AX offers a standard air through spindle feature for dry cutting and is also equipped to handle up to 1,000 PSI coolant through the spindle for deep hole drilling requirements.

A standard high accuracy package includes high resolution optical scale feedback on all axes (includes 4th and 5th), 67 million pulse encoder system, 16 mm fine pitch ballscrews and Kitamura's own Arumatik-Mi control with a 5x faster processing speed offering a smooth control process for high-speed machining of complex workpieces. According to the company, it offers guaranteed positioning accuracy of ±0.002 mm (±0.000079")/full stroke and repeatability of ±0.001 mm (±0.000039").
