Vertical Machining Center achieves optimal die mold finish.

Press Release Summary:

Equipped with 20,000 rpm spindle, Model VB53 features X, Y, Z axis travels of 41.34, 20.87, and 20.08 in., respectively. Machine employs external, isolated oil cooler, which removes common source of vibration for optimal die quality. With 0.05 micron scale feedback, linear scale optimizes positioning accuracy through all applications. Coil-type conveyors move chips outside machine, while coolant shelter prevents casting from being exposed to chips and coolant.

New Die Mold Vertical Machining Center VB53 from OKK Features Superior Surface Finish and Precision

Glendale Heights, IL - OKK USA Corporation's VB53 design features help achieve superior surface finish and precision, combined with high speed operation and excellent operator accessibility, to satisfy even the most high end mold application challenges.

The VB53 is standard with 20000RPM spindle with big plus double contact, X-axis travel of 41.34", Y-axis travel of 20.87, Z-axis travel of 20.08". The VB53's superior surface finishing capability, fewer vibration stripes by accel and decel, and less quadrant projections distinguishes itself amongst the competition through a number of technological innovations. OKK's Fine Pitch ball screw reduces the maximum rapid speed, but increases the overall precision of the entire system along with a rigid machine base. Additionally, the VB53 employs an external, isolated oil cooler, which removes a common source of vibration from the machine, resulting in superior die quality.

Countermeasures for thermal displacement which provide superior precision capability are another advantage of the VB53 over conventional machines. Cutting chips and coolant often affect the thermal displacement of machining centers. Our coolant shelter prevents the casting from being exposed to either, providing optimal performance.

Additionally, standard equipment like the 0.05 micron scale feedback linear scale enhances the positioning accuracy through all possible applications. Your operators are your most valuable asset, and that's why we've made their job easier than ever before. Our redesigned workspace reduces the operator's fatigue, and delivers superior accessibility, 15% to 50% more than conventional machines. Coil-type conveyers clear chips more efficiently, moving stray chips outside the machine quickly. The VB53 also comes with an automatic grease lubrication system standard; this means no waste oil contamination of the coolant, and our cartridge-based design makes it very easy for the operator to replace. VB53, come from temperature-controlled plant in Japan. Nearly all main components are made in house, giving you the dependability and consistency that OKK is renown for. For superior surface finish, top-grade precision, and operator-friendly construction, trust the OKK VB53 to exceed your expectations.

The VB53 is on display, and available for test cuts, in OKK USA Corporation's Glendale Heights showroom.
