Chevalier QP5x-400 5 axis Exhibits at EMO Milano 2015
Chevalier’s QP5X-400, a 40-taper, high-speed VMC features 5-axis simultaneous or 4+1 axis capabilities. The standard machine is integrated with 2-axis, 12.6″ trunnion table and boast better accuracy, more productivity, less manpower, less cycle time and higher profitability.The machine is well suited for high-speed, high-precision and high-productivity machining that is suitable for the aerospace, medical and moldmaking industries.
Chevalier’s QP5X-400 heavy-duty construction features high rigidity, with major parts of the machine constructed of high-quality Meehanite cast iron, enhancing stability. The column design is an inverted Y-shape, one-piece construction for superior rigidity and stability. The pretensioned Class C3 ballscrews are used in all three axes. All servomotors are directly coupled to ballscrews, increasing movement sensitivity while dramatically reducing backlash.
The machine has a table load of 220 lbs. with a 12.6″ trunnion table. The workpiece dimension is 15.7″ x 13.7″H. Travel for the X, Y and Z axes are 20.5″ x 15.8″ x 15″, respectively.
The series offers a 2-axis trunnion table with a heavy-duty, three-piece, cross-roller bearing, providing excellent part loading and machining capability and a ±10″ accuracy for the A-axis. The spindle includes a large-diameter Big Plus spindle design that uses four-piece, P4 Class, high-precision angular-contact ball bearings to increase spindle rigidity and maintain high accuracy during high-speed machining. A direct drive spindle is standard for low noise, vibration and thermal expansion. The series provides fast interpolation, with a high-linear rapid speed of 1,417 / 1,417 / 1,181 ipm. The spindle taper is 40; spindle power is 25 HP/FANUC, with a spindle speed of 10,000 rpm (optional 12K and 15K). Tool capacity is 30+1.
The series includes a FANUC 0iMF control for 4+1 applications; color 10.4″ LCD that has a 4-axis simultaneous controller, linear-circular-helical interpolation, a Manual Guide 0i and much more. The FANUC 31iB-5: 10.4″
TFT LCD color monitor offers a 5-axis simultaneous control.
