Five-Axis Line Targets Die/Mold, Aerospace

With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018 and Amerimold 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: At IMTS 2018, Takumi USA displays its series of five-axis machining centers, which includes the U600 model and the U800 model.

Takumi USA’s series of five-axis machining centers includes the U600 model (XYZ/AC Travels: 24.4" × 39.4" × 19.7"/+30°-110° × 360°) and the U800 model (XYZ/AC Travels: 31.5" × 39.3" × 29.5"/±120° × 360°). Both machines utilize a trunnion-style, two-axis table and the Heidenhain TNC 640 control. The machines are designed for die/mold, aerospace and high-speed applications that require tight tolerances.

The U800 isa gantry machining center with a high-torque table (800 mm platter) with an 80-rpm, twin-torque motor in the A axis and a 100-rpm, single-torque motor in the C axis. It will be shown cutting a  20" tall, 4140 steel replica of the famous Venus De Milo sculpture to showcase its rigidity, speed and surface finish capability.
