LINE OF VMCS OFFER JIG MILLING ACCURACY
A series of CNC vertical machining centers called the “J” series (for “Jig”) are
ideal to machine medical, optical, mold & die, and aerospace parts.
A thermal compensation system employs sensors on the machine faceplateand inside the spindle to minimize the effects of temperature changes on partaccuracy and cut temperature-generated displacement by 60%. This system alsoreduces Z-axis thermal growth and deflection by 30%. Cooling systems for slide waylubrication and ball screw cores stabilize axis feed precision.
Mechanical design features that maximize machine rigidity and accuracy include
hardened and ground tool steel box slideways as well as contact elements that
enhance acceleration and reduce stick-slip.
These heavy-duty, ultra-precision machines allow for more complete machining
of precision components including precision boring, milling, drilling and tapping.

A line of digital-ready fine boring tools, the eBore Fine Boring System, make precision
adjustment easy, enabling more productive, predictable, and accurate boring. The sys-
tem consists of cutting units to cover a diameter range from 6 to 1,020 mm and an
optional digital display that makes precision adjustments as simple as turning a screw.
With eBore, dialing in a tight bore and losing count is a thing of the past. With an adjustment accuracy of 0.002 mm, the chip and coolant-resistant device contain a glass-scale that keeps track of boring bar movement. Simply snap it in place, turn the boringhead´s adjustment screw by the desired amount, and the tool is ready for the nextboring operation.
With eBore, there is no need to remove the boring head from the spindle for adjustment
nor to count graduations or take notes. The device shuts off automatically after 30 sec-
onds and provides more than 5,000 adjustments between battery changes.
APP PROVIDES ENHANCED TRANSPARENCY FOR CNCS
Manage MyMachines, a cloud-based “platform as a service,” enables the
full data tracking of machine kinematics as well as production data and
serves as the initial point of entry into this digital world, combined with
For the builder, this development translates into an immediate abilityto monitor the global install base. Shops and production departments, intandem with their system integrators and other business partners, willhave a transparent display of all CNC equipment on the floor, regardless oflocation, brand, function or usage.
As a MindApp within the Mindsphere portfolio, Manage MyMachines is
integrated into the cloud-based, open Io T operating system, as it allows
access to all critical machine tool information, from bearing temperature to
production by shift or job, all in a selectable priority scale.
Complete asset management is further possible as resource consumption
and energy usage are trackable, all in the cloud, and all accessible through
the app in real-time.
