FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: VF-Mill Vertical Machining Centers
KAAST MACHINE TOOLS INTRODUCES VF-MILL MACHINING CENTERS
The way a machine is built affects the way it performs. With premium quality components, high accuracy, and attractive price points, the VF-Mill series is setting the standards for how to build vertical machining centers. With machines installed in more than 20 countries, the VF-Mill series has become the go-to machining center for the KAAST family of corporations.
The VF Series machines offer options for customers to prioritize performance, rigidity, and/or speed; with machines that excel at each of these priorities, offering users the ability to receive only what they need for their individual applications. The best known of the VF-Series is the Alpha Center. This 3-Axis (4/5th axis available as an option) machining center features a tempered stress relieved cast-iron frame and class C3 ballscrews for accuracy and durability. All models of the Alpha Center include a fully enclosed splash guard, 24 pocket tool changer, 10,000 rpm CAT 40 spindle (12,000 and 15,000 rpm available), and an automatic lubrication system, as well as many other features.
For training, tool room workshops, R&D, and model making, the VF-Mini offers a 12-position umbrella tool changer to go with the 10,000 rpm BT40 spindle. Offering 19.7/11.8/15.75” of travel for the X/Y/Z axis and a 25.5×12” table which can hold up to 440 lbs, the Mini brings plenty of brawn to go with ±0.0004/12” positioning accuracy and ±0.0002” repeatability accuracy.
Running the newest generation of the Fanuc Series 0i control systems, the VF-Series machines can receive programming at the machine via manual programming, USB, or CF Card, or ethernet. The Series 0i brings faster, more accurate performance to a wide range of milling, turning, punching and grinding applications with more standard features, more advanced capabilities and faster communications than ever before. FANUC controls have a world-class reputation for performance, precision, reliability and familiar operation, with more than 3.7 million controls installed worldwide. The Series 0i control is the industry’s most reliable system with a Mean Time Between Failure rate of 52 years.
