Makino’s F-Series VMC is designed to provide stiffness and rigidity for chatter-free cutting, agility for high speed/hard milling and accuracies for tight tolerance blends and matches typical of complex, 3D-contoured geometry associated with medical production.

The F-Series consists of two models – the F3 and the F5. The smaller F3 features X-, Y-, and Z-axis travels of 25.6”, 19.7”, 17.7” respectively, a 33.5” × 19.7” table and a maximum workpiece size of 33.5” L × 19.7” W × 17.7” H. By contrast, the larger F5 features X-, Y-, and Z-axis travels of 35.4”, 19.7”, 17.7” respectively, a 39.4” × 19.7” table and a maximum workpiece size of 39.4” L × 19.7” W × 17.7” H. Both machines have a table load capacity of 1,432 lbs, and a 30-tool magazine provides capacity for an array of tooling.

Included in the standard configuration of the machine is a 20,000 rpm, HSK-63A spindle, which incorporates the company’s core-cooling, under-race and jacket spindle temperature control system. The two-range spindle supplies range capability with the stiffness and rigidity at lower ranges for roughing operations and vibration, chatter-free production of small details and fine features using small tools at high rpm.
