The V100, a chucking machine concept that uses double rod kinematic linkage instead of slides to move the spindle in three axes. The machine targets chuck work to allow more efficient machining of formed or premachined parts. The V100 is a 5" chucking machine with a turning spindle suspended in space by three double rod (parallel kinematic) linkages. This construction allows the spindle to move in three axes: X , Y and Z, to any point in space at a high acceleration and speed, offering at the same time higher rigidity than standard compound slide machine constructions. Main benefits are higher speed, the additional Y axis as part of the standard package and the compact delta-shaped machine frame. This makes the machine suited for a single-piece-flow line setup, without sacrificing accessibility. Features include a 5" chuck size, spindle speeds up to 10,000 rpm and a maximum 41 hp on the spindle drive, covering a work cube of 10" × 10" × 6", and with up to 12 tools. extensive backworking capability.
