Press Releases Mori Seiki Dura Vertical 5100 5-axis mill
SDP/SI 5-Axis CNC Milling Machine makes complex parts without complication
Press Release | May 22, 2013 | New Hyde Park, NY
All five of the axes can move simultaneously to perform intricate operations on a part, creating whatever geometry is necessary.Stock Drive Products (ISO 9001 + AS9100 Registered) is proud to announce the addition of the Mori Seiki Dura Vertical 5100 5-axis mill to their advanced line of machining centers. In addition to the standard X-Y-Z axes, the machine features a rotating fourth axis which can itself turn angularly about a fifth axis. All five of these can move simultaneously to perform intricate operations on a part, creating whatever geometry is necessary. SDP/SI's patented Fairloc® hub is one such part; the countersink, tapped hole and two angular cuts are all made on this one machine.
The number of different parts the 5-axis mill can create is vast, thanks to the use of over 1500 fixtures. The fixtures are designed to hold the stock in place while it is being cut, based on its size and shape. Not only do the fixtures support large quantities in a single run, but they are adjustable in the sense that, if a similar part needs to be made, a new fixture is not required. The fixture already in place can be adjusted accordingly to make the necessary changes to the part. This further increases the output of the machine by decreasing setup time.
