The HYUNDAI WIA F500D Vertical Machining Center (Travels: 23.6” x-axis, 18” y-axis, 22.4” z-axis) features a traveling column design with dual tables. The table and the work piece remain stationary during machining. This design provides uniform loads to; guideways, ballscrews and the spindle motor.
To remain competitive in the global marketplace, mold makers must invest in technology better suited for mold making. That includes moving away from typical C-frame vertical machining centers accessorized for making molds to bridge-type VMC’s, with spindle speeds to 40,000 rpm, thru spindle coolant and simultaneous 5-axis capability.
