VF-Mill Vertical Machining Centers

"With premium quality components, high accuracy and attractive price points, the VF-Mill series is setting the standard for how to build vertical machining centers. With machines installed in more than 20 countries, the VF-Mill series has become the go-to machining center for the KAAST family of corporations," said a company spokesperson.

The VF Series machines offer options for customers to prioritize performance, rigidity and/or speed. "With machines that excel at each of these priorities, users have the ability to receive only what they need for their individual applications," said the spokesperson.

The Alpha Center 3-axis (4/5th axis available as an option) machining center features a tempered stress relieved cast-iron frame and class C3 ballscrews for accuracy and durability. All models of the Alpha Center include a fully enclosed splash guard, 24 pocket tool changer, 10,000 RPM CAT 40 spindle (12,000 RPM and 15,000 RPM available) and an automatic lubrication system, as well as many other features.

For training, tool room workshops, R&D and model making, the VF-Mini offers a 12-position umbrella tool changer to go with the 10,000 RPM BT40 spindle. It offers 19.7"/11.8"/15.75" of travel for the X/Y/Z axis, a 25.5" x 12" table that can hold up to 440 lbs., and ±0.0004/12" positioning accuracy and ±0.0002" repeatability accuracy. "A footprint of only 65 in. x 94 in. squeezes this machine into the corner in almost shop," said the spokesperson.

Running the newest generation of the FANUC Series 0i control systems, the VF-Series machines can receive programming at the machine via manual programming, USB or CF card or ethernet. The Series 0i brings faster, more accurate performance to a wide range of milling applications with more standard features, more advanced capabilities and faster communications than before.
