Makino Raises the Bar in VMC Productivity with Next-Generation PS105
Advanced technologies and increased capacity drive new levels of productivity for job-shop production environments.
Building on its highly successful PS-Series product line, Makino introduces the next-generation PS65 and PS105 vertical machining centers. Both models feature enhanced design characteristics and next-generation technologies that expand upon the capabilities of their predecessors. With an ideal blend of power, accuracy, speed and reliability, the PS65 and PS105 are redefining the standard for vertical machining center productivity within the aerospace, medical, automotive and general manufacturing industries.
From the base casting to the spindle, rigid design characteristics have been incorporated within a variety of machine elements of the PS65 and PS105. Core-cooled ball screws maintain critical motion component temperatures by combating heat for improved axial motion, accuracy and extended reliability. By delivering this thermally controlled lubrication oil through the ball screw and support bearing, component life span and accuracy are extended.
Equipped with a standard 14,000-rpm, CAT40 spindle (HSK-63A opt), the PS65 and PS105 provide the power, torque and RPM capability to support today’s cutter technologies offering the highest levels of material removal in even the toughest materials. This capability is complemented by a stiff, rigid, balanced spindle design, featuring large diameter bearings, 85-mm (3.35 inch) that eliminate spindle deflection. The result is a stable cutting process that is capable of delivering both great metal removal rates and producing high-quality machined surfaces.
Tool loading on the PS machines is easily facilitated from either an exterior loading station or directly into the spindle. Both machines feature a standard 30-tool capacity ATC magazine, which can be upgraded to an optional 60-tool capacity magazine. Each configuration provides fast and smooth tool changing to support high-speed machining applications. To push productivity even further, the machines are configured with a dual-speed tool change system that recognizes lighter tools and will speed up the tool exchange cycle.
Created with the production environment in mind, the PS-Series chip and coolant management systems help to enhance productivity. Configured with steep internal side slopes, coolant flush on the tele-covers, spiral chip conveyors and nozzle and flush coolant as standard features, chips are efficiently and effectively removed from the cutting zone.
The Makino Pro P Control features a 10.4 inch, color LCD screen that is “touch” sensitive with on-screen navigation providing instant access to information that is literally at your fingertips. The Pro P Control combines the high number-crunching power and data processing capacity of the latest high-speed microprocessor, a user-friendly interface and the proven stability of Fanuc hardware. It provides a highly integrated, embedded control system capable of fast commands, high reliability, flexibility, integration capability and ease of operation.
