The machine is equipped with core-cooled ballscrews, support bearings and motor mounts as well as a cored-cooled saddle design with Nano slideway to control machine thermal growth, providing sustained accuracy in long cycle time, complex geometry die/mould work. The spindle features Makino’s unique, patented core-cooling and under-race lubrication system, minimizing thermal distortion at high spindle speeds. Integrated construction of the spindle and drive motor rotor reduces vibration during high-speed operation.
The FB127’s optimum axis layout and machine construction give you superior performance in a compact package. The axis layout is designed with no overhangs to ensure outstanding accuracy over the full range of axis travel. The guideways are integrated with the machine to provide superior accuracy and rigidity.
