Five-Axis VMC For Medical Device Market

The Mytrunnion-1 is a five-axis VMC designed for simultaneous five-axis machining of smaller-lot parts. Built on a C-frame platform, the Z axis is moved by the headstock and the X and Y axes are moved by the table. The machine incorporates an A-axis trunnion table that can tilt from -10 degrees to 100 degrees, and a rotary C axis that can move 360 degrees with a 0.

The Mytrunnion-1 is a five-axis VMC designed for simultaneous five-axis machining of smaller-lot parts. Built on a C-frame platform, the Z axis is moved by the headstock and the X and Y axes are moved by the table. The machine incorporates an A-axis trunnion table that can tilt from -10 degrees to 100 degrees, and a rotary C axis that can move 360 degrees with a 0.001 degree minimum indexing command. The trunnion design allows for stiffness and flexibility with the ability to position the workpiece closer to the spindle, according to the company. The machine is suitable for precision machining of small parts and can accommodate a table size with a diameter of 4.7" and table load capacity as heavy as 44 lbs. A three-jaw chuck can be mounted on the table to hold smaller, round or hexagon-shaped parts. The maximum workpiece size can have a diameter as large as 13.8" × 8.1", which allows for flexibility and versatility in machining of small-to-medium size parts, according to the company. Positioning accuracy of ± 0.000079", repeatability of ± 0.00004" and simultaneous five-axis capabilities create favorable surface finishes while saving on labor and tooling costs, the company says, adding that parts can be machined in one operation, simplifying the overall machining process.
