It features a specially designed tilt-trunnion table with combined B- and C-axes to provide die/mould shops with a full 5-axis simultaneous milling answer for intricate 3-D shapes.
The table provides the highest accuracies and repeatability available in the industry with less lost motion and higher stiffness and rigidity than comparative 5-axis machines.
TheV33i-5XB provides one-setup access to complex, multiple-sided parts, reducing handling and costs. It also facilitates access to undercut areas, oddly positioned features and complex geometries—all with optimum, shorter tool lengths. This creates the best tool life and surface finish characteristics in the marketplace.
The machine can also be used in the more traditional “2+3” mode for blending and matching complicated multi-plane surfaces typical of die/mould production.
