CNC Compact Vertical Machining Centers

"Kent CNC KVR compact vertical machining centers (VMCs) combine proven machine design with advanced technology in control and manufacturing," said a company spokesperson. "Long-lasting and durable, these machines deliver a precision-grade finish at high speeds."

Features and benefits:

  • FANUC CNC control - All machines are equipped with FANUC controls, motors and drives, with rapids of 1,417 IPM. The ball screws are all pre-tensioned and cooled to give X-, Y- and Z-axis positioning accuracies of .0002" and repeatability of .0001".
  • AICC high speed machining - Allows to machine complex shapes more accurately at higher speeds.
  • Roller linear ways (on all 3-axes) - Roller type linear guides are used for greater load capacity and longer life on the bearing surfaces.
  • High-speed spindle standard - 10,000 RPM spindle with chiller provides higher RPMs and faster feedrates. The spindle chiller is designed to extend the life of the spindle and ensure accuracy, increase the machine's capacity and reduce maintenance costs.
  • 15 HP peak servo spindle motor - The 15 HP, FANUC direct drive spindle and motor mount is chilled and is standard at 10K RPM with 12K and 15K options. Six guide blocks are used on the Z-axis to increase stability. The control is 4/5-axis capable. A 24-station side mount tool changer is standard on most machines. This allows fast 1.5-second tool changes to reduce production times.
  • 4-axis ready - Allows spindle access to a workpiece from various angles.
  • Six linear blocks on Z-axis - There are six linear blocks that give more support while eliminating vibration and provide more stability when taking deep cuts.
  • Chip flush and oil skimmer - Chip evacuation from the frame of the machine by water jets into a chip tray keeps the area free of debris. Having oil-free coolant can also extend its usefulness and effectiveness, reducing the expense on maintenance and coolant replacement. Removing floating surface oils while aerating and refreshing coolant will extend tool life as well.
  • Chip auger - Automated chip removal allows for increased productivity with solutions that safely remove the waste and debris from any operation.
