5. Machine structure
¡ï Thermo-symmetrical gantry frame structure
The machine adopts a stable thermo-symmetrical gantry frame structure and consists mainly of base,
table, R.H. and L.H. columns, cross rail, top beam, tool heads, hydraulic system and electric system.
Columns and cross rail are of box-shaped castings with numerous reinforced ribs. Two columns are
connected through the top beam on the top and bolted to the base at the bottom so to form a superb
rigid and stable structure that is qualified for stable and heavy cutting even at severe cutting conditions.
Layout of components
One DC 55 kW main motor and a speed change gearbox are fitted at the back of machine to drive the
table. Cross rail moves up and down along front guideways of columns. The two tool heads are seated
on the guideways of cross rail. The tool heads are composed of carriage and ram. Rams are induction
hardened and precision ground and jib strips are made of wear-resistant industrial alloy material and
hand scraped for precision matching. Compulsary lubrication systems are used in main drive system and
on sliding guideways. Independent hydraulic power pack locates behind the machine for easier adjustment
and maintenance. Independent electric cabinet is equipped for easier venting of heat and easier check
6. Base with spindle and bearing
The base is made of heavily reinforced ribbed grey cast iron and stress-relieved after rough machining.
Heavy load short-shaft type spindle is placed in the center. High precision (P5 class) preloaded double row
cylindrical roller thrust bearing is equipped to support the spindle radically. Inner conic ring of the
bearings can eliminate the radial clearance effectively for high precision positioning of spindle and
stable rotating at high speed. Big size hydrostatic bearings are adopted axially on the base for improved
loading capacity. Hydrostatic guideways are Zinc-Aluminum alloy lined and matched. Constant flow
hydraulic oil flows in through regulating distribution mechanism.
Constant flow synchronous pumps and a multi-head synchronized oil distributor are adopted to provide
constant oil to each individual pocket of the 12 oil pockets on the base upper guideways via regulating
valves. An oil pressure relay is equipped. Once oil pressure is less than the rated value, alarm will be given
and rotation of the working table will not be allowed.
Hydrostatic bearing features:
a). low friction for smooth rotation and long life of table,
b). heavy load capacity on table,
c). oil film between machine base and table absorbs cutting vibration & loads,
d). safety system regulating the hydrostatic pressure for optimum safety.
The table is made of high grade cast iron with numerous reinforced ribs for superb rigidity. Four heavy duty
jaws are fitted on the table. A ring gear is fitted under the table. Surfaces under the table are engraved with
wear-resistant Zinc-Aluminum alloy lining.
8. Cross rail
Cross rail moves up and down along guideways of columns. Elevation of the cross rail is through a
mechanism that consists of an asynchronous motor, driving shafts, worm gear boxes, trapezoidal
leadscrews, etc. Cross rail is lifted simultaneously through the trapezoidal screws.
¡ð Cross rail will be clamped automatically on to the column after reaching the required position and
will be relieved for movement. Clamping pads are equipped to assure stable & reliable clamping of the
cross rail for preparation of heavy cutting.
¡ð Telescopic covers are equipped on the cross rail to keep it from intrusion of chips & dusts.
¡ð Automatic compulsory lubrications units are equipped for lubrication of the guideways.
¡ð Contacting surfaces at the back of the cross rail are lined with wear-resistant industrial alloy
material for smoother travels and longer machine life.
9.C axis, ram with live spindle and ATC (optional, model VBM series)
The machine can also be incorporated with a 3rd controlled axis, ie. C axis for controlled rotary movement of
the table. The movement is transmitted to the table by means of a pinion meshing with the gear that is
placed under the table. The pinion is driven by a servo motor through a gearbox reducer unit. C axis allows
for a controlled high precision indexing & positioning of the table, combining a low speed variable rotation
and a high torque on the table, allowing milling, drilling and grinding operations with high accuracy.
The ram size can also be enlarged and modified to accommodate a live rotating spindle driven by a servo
motor. The spindle nose can be ISO 50 / BT 50 with tool clamping mechanism.
With this configuration, the machine can perform milling, drilling and reaming as well as turning functions. X,
Z and C axes can be simultaneously controlled.
¡ð A rotating spindle is integrated in the ram and is driven by an AC spindle motor.
¡ð In turning mode, table is driven by DC main motor, DC digital drive and 2-step speed change gearbox.
¡ð In indexing and table feeding mode (C-axis), table is driven by servo motor and gear-pinion mechanism.
¡ð The a/m two modes are interlocked, ie. mechanism for turning will de-couple when the machine is
running in milling mode and vice versa.
Automatic tool changer (ATC) can also be adopted with tool magazine capacity of 8, 12 or 20 pockets.
