The heavy-duty Fanuc RoboDrill eco VMC offers high-speed milling, drilling, tapping, deburring and chamfering. The machine is named for its ecological spindle that returns energy to the machine in the intervals between cutting. It has a working cube of 19.7″ x 15.7" × 12.9", feed rates of as much as 1,181 ipm, rapid traverses of as much as 1,890 ipm, accelerations of as much as 1.5G, 0.8-second tool changes (tool-to-tool), rigid tapping to 5,000 rpm and high-speed reverse tapping. The machine’s Fanuc 31i CNC has simultaneous three-axis control (expandable to four-axis). Other standard features include a 14.75-hp (peak), 10,000-rpm direct-drive spindle with precision-enhancing thermal compensation and HRV control, a 14-station toolchanger, an auto lube system and an interior work light.

The VMC’s speed and versatility make it suited for off-loading larger, slower machines as well as for performing secondary operations, regardless of production volumes. Options include high-speed indexers, a fourth axis, a signal lamp and robotic loading.

  • Get 5-Axis Machining on a 3-Axis VMC

    Machine shops want and need to eliminate steps in the manufacturing process. Adding four- or five-axis capability to an existing three-axis VMC is a practical way to achieve five-sided machining using a single setup.

    A three-, four- or five-axis vertical machining cneter can run the gamut of capability and cost. Assessing your application requirements now and in the future can make for a much wiser machining center purchase.

    These days, precision machine shops are often looking to expand the range of work they can take on profitably. It is not enough, in many instances, to be exclusively a turning shop.
