High Efficiency Machining

Nidec developed the µV1 machining center in 2006 to meet the increasing requirements of precision parts and molds in the optical, medical and semi-conductor industries. The company has now introduced the µV1 with an expanded work area for the machining of larger components.

Lubricating oil is controlled at the optimum temperature and supplied directly to the jacket part, as well as the internal part of the rotating spindle. Oil is used to cool the inside and outside of the spindle and is supplied to bearings. It minimizes temperature differences between inner and outer ring and ?uctuation of preload. "This method enables high rigidity, high rotation accuracy and lubrication, even if the spindle is rotating continuously for a long time, which enhances reliability," said a company spokesperson.

Sliding surfaces are adopted for all axes. The XY-axes guideways are not attached, but integrated with the columns or the bed. They are composed of sliding guide surfaces that are tempered and precisely ground to maintain accuracy over a long period of time.

The X-axis guideway has been shortened to enhance machining performance. The Y-axis guideway is located near the center of gravity to prevent yawing and is supported by the rigid box-shaped bed and leveling jacks. This allows for straighter movement of the table, which helps with various table loads.
