Features Ultimate Performance(TM) Technology

CINCINNATI, OH (December 27. 2001) -The new Arrow Series 2 VMC-1250C from Cincinnati Machine features the exclusive Ultimate Performance(TM) technology, offering increased power and spindle acceleration, enhanced rapid traverse and acc/dec performance, and fast axis drive.

The VMC-1250C's all-new performance package, which includes the state-of-the-art Profibus I/O interface technology as standard equipment, reduces wire terminations, improves safety and simplifies maintenance. Tested and proven, the
components are installed on more than three million machines worldwide.

The digital vector spindle drive provides 30 Hp Max (22kW), 25 Hp MTDR. Improved spindle acceleration allows the 40 series spindle to reach 8,000 rpm in just 1.8 seconds. The drive system provides constant torque regardless of load.

Process matching feedrates of 590 ipm (15,000 mm/min) are combined with rapid traverse rates up to 1,416 ipm (36 m/min). The acc/dec rates are increased up to 70 percent.

Enhanced operator convenience features include high intensity lighting and end panel windows for increased visibility within the machining area. In addition, an integral
workstation tray is incorporated into the control station.

The fast, powerful Acramatic A2100 CNC from Siemens is standard on the Arrow Series 2 VMC-1250C. Operating on a Windows NT® platform, the A2100 provides a user-friendly system with the most comprehensive specifications available today. A touch screen control and handheld pendant place the control functions at the operator's fingertips, reducing setup time.

The standard third-party interface allows the use of proprietary software, such as CAD/CAM systems and SPC programs to run on the control. This open-architecture system, which is based on a true PC platform, offers unrivalled communication
capabilities.

The entire new Arrow Series 2 line -which encompasses the VMC-500, VMC-750, VMC- 1000 and VMC- 1250C -are some of the most reliable, accurate and user-friendly vertical machining centers in today's marketplace.
