VMC for Hardmilling 50+ HRc



Makino's V33 is a hard milling vertical machining center (VMC) that, according to the company, is designed to provide tighter accuracy, sustained dynamic performance, enhanced surface finishes and long hours of continuous, unattended operation.

The V33i is suited for high-speed hard milling in materials at 50+ HRc. "Refinements to the spindle have further increased stiffness and rigidity, reducing the potential for tool chatter," said a company spokesperson. "In addition, attention to the V33i design has reduced potential machine movement and associated thermal growth that could cause inaccuracies during the cutting of long die and mold programs. These features help retain accuracy during long periods of unattended operation."

"During long, hard milling jobs, many machines begin to lose their accuracy," said Bill Howard, Makino VMC Product Manager. "Being able to hard mill accurately while leaving the machine unattended enables shops to reduce costs and decrease cycle times, which is exactly what the V33i is designed for."

The machine's worktable is 750 mm x 450 mm with associated travels of 650 mm (X) x 450 mm (Y) x 350 mm (Z). The machine work zone will accommodate a maximum workpiece size of 750 mm x 595 mm x 250 mm. The V33i is equipped with the latest version of Makino's Super Geometric Intelligence (SGI.4) control software to improve federates and accuracy and reduce part cycle times by 40% or more, compared with the prior generation of software, according to the company.

"Makino's V33i features a shorter spindle that is more stiff and rigid than other vertical machining centers of its size," said the spokesperson. "By decreasing the length of the spindle, the V33i is able to operate - vibration free - over a wider range of spindle RPMs, therefore reducing chatter and improving both surface finish and tool life. In addition, refinements have been made to the lubrication system design to tightly control (or eliminate) spindle thermal growth during long and continuous, high-speed hard milling - typical of die and mold applications."

The V33i comes standard with a 20 HP, 20,000 RPM spindle. For higher speed machining, Makino offers optional 30,000 and 40,000 RPM spindles. Spindle nose configurations are available in Cat #40, HSK 63A and 63F, HSK - E50 and HSK - E32 to support a variety of tooling and applications.

"The machine's strength and accuracy is due in part to its massive castings," said the spokesperson. "Integral, hardened and ground hand-scraped guideways provide enhanced geometric tolerances and precise positioning and repeatability. The no-overhang, fully supported construction ensures peak motion performance with no lost motion or unsupported components during motion - which guarantees tight dynamic tolerances for hard milling of complex, 3D sculptured surfaces."

Makino's V-series high-speed spindle features a patented spindle core cooling system that circulates chilled coolant through the spindle and bearing packages, reducing spindle growth. Increased lubricant flow in the V33i further minimizes thermal growth.

"Cooled elements such as core-cooled ball screws, lubricated ball nuts, a servo motor cooling jacket system and temperature controlled passageways provide enhanced structural temperature control," said the spokesperson. "Controlling the impact of machine movement on thermal characteristics reduces temperature impact on the machining process and provides sustainable, long-term, dynamic accuracy."
