When it comes to machining die/mold parts with long cycle times, the V56i vertical machining center does so with superb accuracy.
The video shows high-efficiency machining of a die-cast mold in 50HRc tool steel. The part is 3.94 inches by 3.94 inches by 4.33 inches wide (100 mm by 100 mm by 110 mm). This particular application had a cycle time of 9 hours, 29 minutes, for a total cycle time reduction of 29 percent compared to previous technologies.
The V56i excels at providing this kind of sustained accuracy in long cycle time, complex geometry die/mold work. Makino’s unique, patented core-cooling and under-race lubrication system minimizes thermal distortion at high spindle speeds. The rigid construction and thermal management technologies of the V56i enable effective use of long tooling.
