High speed bridge type vertical machining centers

PROFIMACH© HSVMC–III Series vertical machining center

High precision and flexibility for Electrode, Mold & Die machining

The use of high speed milling in moldmaking shops is no longer viewed as merely providing a firm with a competitive advantage. It is a disruptive technology that is becoming a competitive necessity. It is now being employed extensively, and those mold shops not effectively implementing this technology could fall by the wayside in the highly competitive worldwide marketplace.

Walk into any die/mold shop and you’ll find dedicated machines for wet and dry hard milling and graphite milling, three common operations.  Die/mold shops often run dedicated hard milling and EDM machines for these operations because each has special requirements.

Mounting the pressure to minimize costs, while improving machine and spindle utilization will force many machine shops to consider investing in machines with multi-purpose use or so-called all-in-one machines like our HS-VMC Series. The PROFIMACH© HSVMC–III Series (High Speed Vertical Machining Centers) are designed with a thermal- symmetric bridge type structure to optimize precision and workpiece quality. High accuracy is also enhanced by the constant pre-load high speed spindle.

All-in-one vertical machining centers such as our Profimach HS-VMC Series, with graphite, copper and steel milling capability, have wet and dry hard milling capabilities but can also be configured for milling graphite. Using these machines, die/mold shops can lower their costs by reducing downtime, training and maintenance spend. In addition, shops can decrease lead-times and improve machine and spindle usage.

Special Mold and dies

Profimach's high speed milling CNC equipment will give you capabilities that you never dreamed of. Whether you’re making molds to produce components for aerospace, electronics, medical automotive or telecommunications, you need to use small tools and a means of running them with efficiency.
Frequently, making these molds requires EDM electrodes that present challenges to the process of micro milling. Not the least of which is the fact that polishing and handwork is not practical where these intricate parts are concerned – so a quality surface finish must come from the machining process itself.

Optimal structural design

Bridge-Style High Speed Vertical Machining Centers

  •  Main mechanical structures, such as: base, column, saddle, etc., are made of Meehanite casting iron with the process of heat treatment to release the residual stress to ensure every actual miniature movement and to maintain a long-lasting accuracy.
  • Box-shaped structural design on beam, together with ladder-like layout of linear guideway makes the combining span of saddle wider and assures a powerful and stable machining capability on the spindle. 
  • The no-counterweight structural design on headstock is without stagnant phenomenon caused by inertia and no vibration resulted from the counterweight, but with the agile, quick and stable response in feed.
  • 3-axis ballscrews, being pre-stretched, can effectively refrain from the thermal deformation and surely guarantee the precise positioning accuracy and repeatability accuracy. 
  • All components made by casting iron are through special treatment to release internal stress so as to assure good accuracy in long-term operation and long service hours.

HSVMC Bridge type vertical milling machines

By using a bridge construction, this vertical milling machine becomes five times more rigid than a traditional "C-Frame" style VMC

Rigid Bridge Column Type Construction

The characteristic twin bridge & column of our HSVMC has been FEM calculated and it’s made of one-piece Meehanite, high quality casting. This design insures maximum rigidity and performance in High Speed milling and reduces vibrations during heavy cutting operations. Thermal influences are minimized, due to the short distance between spindle axis and the portal structure.

Thermal analysis of the symmetrical structure proves that this is the optimal solution for high precision machining of mild products. Full cast iron structure has been stress-relieved giving the machine maximum stability, accuracy and repeatability.

No-counterbalance design on headstock

  • The no-counterweight structural design on headstock is without stagnant phenomenon caused by inertia and no vibration resulted from the counterweight, but with the agile, quick and stable response in feed.
  • Z-axis linear guideway with rigid precisie guiding blocks ensures good accuracy in long-term operation and long service hours.

Automatic tool length measurement standard

Saves precious time and improves your quality

Tool steel is not the easiest material to cut.  One of the greatest difficulties encountered when machining hardened tool steels is that cutter wear can reach unacceptable levels within the time required to machine a single, multi-featured electrode. As such, to help mitigate the effects of cutter wear, the use of tool measurement probes on the machine tool is highly recommended. Tool length measurement probes, are particularly helpful when it comes to validating the length of cutting tools and tracking their wear state. 

We have each machine standard equipped with an automatic tool length measuring device.

High-Speed, High-Precision Machining (HSHP) function included

The HSHP function (Mode I and mode II) in the dedicated mold making controller can process 2500 blocks/sec (program lines) and look-ahead 2000 blocks each second. These enable smooth motion and enhance surface quality. To advance the precision, the included HSHP function also controls the corner and arc feed-rate efficiently.

Smooth Precision Advanced (SPA) Function

Smooth Precision Advanced (SPA) Function included

Due to limitation of machine condition, servo mismatch can be found even the servo loop gain has been optimized. This error causes dimensional shrinkage especially in high-speed machining. SPA feature is designed to overcome this issue.

Path Smoothing Feature

Path Smoothing Feature included

By trimming the rough program path generated by CAD/CAM software with a tolerance, the desired smooth and fine path is estimated by Path Smoothing function. This improves the surface finish, machining efficiency and stability of machine tool.

High Precision Contour Control (HPCC) function

High Precision Contour Control (HPCC) function included

The tool path generated by CAD/CAM software is generally discontinuous, and it causes negative effects on machining operations. The problems will be more serious because of larger CAD/CAM tolerance. HPCC function fits the discontinuous blocks into a smooth-curve path, and this will enhance the machining precision and reduce the mechanical shock.
