Original Press Release:

GF Machining Solutions’ MILL P 900 Offers High Precision, Stability

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., September 15, 2018 – GF Machining Solutions debuted the Mikron MILL P 900 3-axis vertical milling machine in booth #338754 at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago. The highly precise and productive machine is especially beneficial to mold and die manufacturers.

The Mikron MILL P 900 features a polymer concrete machine base that delivers extreme dynamic stiffness, while its thermal management, contour accuracy and precise positioning contribute to superior part surface finishes. A symmetrical portal design and effective chip management heighten operational efficiency.

The machine uses the fast and efficient FANUC FS31iB CNC. Within the control are multiple machine optimization modules and smart machine features that effectively increase productivity and reduce energy consumption.

To further reduce cycle times, the machine packs an aggressive high-speed 20,000-rpm StepTec spindle that delivers 120 N·m of torque. The spindle features an advanced 3D acceleration sensor (V3D) vibration monitoring system that uses three vibration sensors to provide a complete and accurate visualization of spindle performance. An optional 36,000-rpm spindle delivers superb surface finishes thanks to its axial stability, making it perfect for the production of high-end molds with tight finish and size tolerances.

The Mikron MILL P 900 comes standard with a 30-position tool magazine and automatic tool changer; a 60-position tool magazine is also available. With easy access via a side door on the machine, operators can change out tools with ease. The tool changers also deliver a fast 4.2-second change time and a 7.4- second chip-to-chip change time.

Available integrated automated pallets that handle maximum payloads of 440 lbs (200 kg), as well as chip-control options, lights-out production capabilities and GF Machining Solutions’ rConnect technology for process monitoring all contribute to optimize the Mikron MILL P 900’s overall machine utilization and output.
