High Volume Production Lab
High volume production is handled in our main production
area. While not an ISO Class clean room, the temperature is held to a nominal temperature of 20.00°C +/- 1.5°C. The main feature of this area is our 4 machine GF System 3R robot cell feeding four 5-axis milling machines as well as our Zeiss GageMax shop floor CMM for in process inspection.
WHAT DO WE HOUSE IN THE HIGH VOLUME PRODUCTION AREA?
GFMS Mikron VCP 800
The VCP 800 machining center is designed as a traveling machine with a moving working table. Two linear motions are carried out by the tool and one linear motion by the work piece. The machine column in polymer concrete is the base of this concept. Due to self-rigidity, long term precision accuracy is achieved without special foundation. The moving working table (X-axis) guarantees a good access to the work area. The machine base in polymer concrete carries the two axis unit includes a transversal slide (Y-axis) and the spindle slide for the Z motion. The compact construction of these elements forms the basis for the high geometric accuracy of this machining center.
Travel (X,Y,Z): 800 x 450 x 450mm
42,000 rpm / HSK 40E spindle
Rigid Rectangular table 1050 x 530 mm
GFMS Mikron MillP 800uST
The Mikron Mill P 800u ST is a unique machine combining dynamic 5-axis milling with simultaneous turning capability at up to 800rpm. The combination of milling and turning technology in a single machine achieves optimal productivity, accuracy and cost effectiveness. Being able to fully machine components on a single machine eliminates transfer-related part runout and errors and increases finished part quality. Due to its stable construction and directly drive chilled rotary and tilt axis circular and swiveling axes, the Mikron Mill P 800 U ST can be used for anything from heavy roughing work to precise finishing work.
