Hardinge Inc. has announced the availability of its newest vertical machining centres that will feature fast rapid rates, high axis and spindle acceleration/deceleration, and a Mitsubishi control packed with many standard features. The V480 and V710 will also serve as the company’s ideal mechanism for workshops and OEMs who are in need of maximum versatility from each of their equipment.
The Bridgeport V480/V710 is a quick, small, compact and rugged machine developed for applications that require a rigid, fast and accurate set-up. They are fully digital machines with a rapid traverse rate of 1,417 ipm X, Y and Z and acceleration rates of X: 6 sq. m/sec / Y: 4.6 sq. m/sec / Z: 3.75 sq. m/sec providing a fast and accurate response. The quickness of the machine, along with its superior durability and flexibility, makes it not only one of the equipment in its class that’s easiest to set up but more importantly, it looks like both the V480/V710 can also go head-to-head with anyone among its rivals in terms of production and efficiency
From job-shop applications to high production manufacturing, the V480 and V710 machines outperform the average machine in their class. With their heavy duty cast iron constructions, 8,278-pound machine weight for the V480 and 8613-pounds for the V710, 10 hp/7.5 kW, 33 ft-lb/47 Nm spindle torque, 20-station Swing Arm ATC and manual pulse generator (MPG), the vertical machining centres are competitively priced machines designed to be best in its group.
Aside from its key features, the machine also comes with a 10.4″ colour LCD, CT40 or BT40 Big Plus spindle, 10,000 rpm coupled grease spindle, coolant ship flush system among many others. In addition, both vertical machining centres have the popular options like 12,000 and 15,000 rpm spindles, CTS-Deublin rotary union, through-spindle coolant, 280 psi, air blast, and more. Thus, making it one of Hardinge’s most sophisticated machinery up to date.
