Original Press Release:



KBC Tools Introduces New Vertical Mills with CNC Control



Hot off the release of its latest sales flyer, KBC Tools & Machinery is pleased to announce a major addition to its extensive machinery lineup. The KBC CNC Vertical Milling Machine with Acu-Rite CNC Control sets a new standard for exceptional value in heavy-duty machinery. Offered in four configurations (2- and 3-axis models in 9"x49" and 10"x50" table sizes), these packages combine a high-quality mill with an industry standard control for an entry level price. Sound too good to be true? Read on!

For 30 years the KBC Vertical Milling Machine has been a reliable workhorse in machine shops across North America. With accuracy and durability to match 'brand name' mills costing twice the price, these machines have been the obvious choice for those demanding top quality at a dollar figure that won't interfere with a good night's sleep.

Among many attractive features, the KBC Vertical Milling Machines sport a mechanical variable speed mill head that will reliably deliver full torque over the entire speed range. The hardened and ground table (available in two sizes) features precision hardened ground ways, ensuring the machine will stand up to years of usage and deliver the kind of long-term value expected from a KBC machine. As well, a unique quill-release feature on the spindle drive allows for manual operation when CNC is unnecessary or unwanted.

When nothing but computerized accuracy will do, however, the included Acu-Rite CNC Control (made in the U.S.A.) is the optimal choice. Easy to learn and simple to use, the Acu-Rite is built with speed and convenience firmly in mind. An exceptionally clear full-color LCD display, 3D contouring capabilities, standardized menus, and components that have been manufactured and tested to withstand the harshest machine shop environments are all standard on the Acu-Rite MILLPWR Control system. Advanced features do not imply a steep learning curve however; the Acu-Rite has canned cycles for all regular milling and drilling jobs. Just fill in the blanks with your project specs and you are ready to roll with a program customized for your task.

Though you may not need it, support for both the KBC Mill and the Acu-Rite control is never far away. KBC always keeps parts for its mills in stock, while Acu-Rite handles inquiries concerning its U.S.-made CNC controls through a well-organized North American support network. The proven reliability and ease of use associated with this package will allow you to get right down to work on equipment designed to meet the most demanding shop requirements.
