New Industry Standard Knee Mills

Kent Industrial (USA) offers a variety of high-quality milling machines.

The KTM series of mills start with model KTM-3S (step pulley) and KTM-3VS (variable speed), both with a 3 HP AC motor drive, 9" x 49" table and 12" X 35" cross and longitudinal travels.

In the same KTM series, Kent USA offers mills with AC-frequency drive head with 3-5 HP and R8-40NST spindle, digital RPM display, spindle load meter and automatic spindle direction reversal when switching between high and low-speed ranges. The table sizes range from 9" x 49" (12" x 35" travels); 10" x 50" (15.5" x 35" travels); and 12" x 50" (17.5" x 33" travels).

All standard industry options, such as digital readouts, power feeds, power draw bar and riser blocks, are available and installed by Kent USA, with the machine being pre-run prior to shipping out to the customer. All models are also available for retrofit of CNC 2- or 3-axis control-the most popular being the Acu-Rite Millpwr G2.

An available option on the Millpower retrofit mills is a programmable AMI spindle control function. The AMI circuit connects the control of the motor speed to the Acu-Rite control, allowing the operator to program the spindle speed within the program. It also enables the safety feature that allows a hard emergency stop on both the CNC control and the control panel on the head of the machine.

Kent USA also has a built-in safety feature that allows the forward and reverse switch to remain correct in direct drive and in back gear. The CNC control is installed by Kent USA.

Within this same KTM series is the heavy duty (die-maker's) KTM-5AVKF milling machine with a 5 HP spindle motor, 70-4500 RPM variable speed head with AC-frequency drive, digital spindle RPM display and individual XYZ jog joystick (with X- and Y-axis driven by DC servo motors), flood coolant system and chip tray, extra-wide 13" x 59" table (20" x 39.4" travels), hardened and ground for long-lasting performance, box ways on the saddle and knee and automatic centralized one-shot lubrication system with metered check-valves.
