The KMC SR-H series features a vertical spindle as well as an automatically interchangeable 90°-angle milling head. Various milling heads are available for expanding the possible applications, for example an extended vertical milling head for deep dipping into the workpiece or the 30° milling head for die and mold construction. According to the manufacturers, all axes have generously dimensioned, hardened and ground flat guides for maximum stability and rigidity and optimal precision during machining. Large-diameter preloaded ball screws are used in all axes. The ball screw spindle of the table drive has an internal oil cooler, which keeps the spindle in a constant temperature range even during continuous operations. The spindle ball bearings are additionally air-cooled for an optimized positioning accuracy. Integrally cast bearing seats in the Y- and Z-axis provide enhanced rigidity. As the exhibitors add, there is wide range of accessories and equipment to allow a precise machine configuration. These options include an internal coolant supply, measuring sensors, CNC round tables or flexibly extendable tool magazines.
Universal five-sided machining of large-volume molds
According to Kao Ming, the new KMC SR-H model range is characterized by a high degree of automation and a robust basic structure. The machine enables the universal five-sided machining of large-volume molds, tools and machine components in one clamping.
