PRODUCTS :: 47 Vertical Machining Center Dry Cuts Graphite Hwacheon Machinery America Inc.'s Hi-M G1 vertical machining center is specially de- signed to cut graphite. Its quick and precise performance makes it an ideal choice for dry cutting graphite electrode material used in die mold work, the company says. The compact structure, with a design based on 3D/FEM analysis, and wide LM guides for XYZ axes, ensures accuracy. For high-speed operation, the 24,000- rpm spindle is integrated with a high power motor, and without any parts to transfer power between the motor and spindle. According to the company, this design minimizes vibration, noise and power loss during high-speed rotation. In addition, a bearing grease lubrication system and syn- chronous temperature control decreases the influence of external temperature variation and improves smoothness. The VMC is engineered with a dust- proof/waterproof spindle and a dust re- duction system. It also includes a Siemens 828D controller that provides flexible, in- teractive programming, as well as controls that enable high productivity. :: Hwacheon Machinery America Inc. 847-573-0100,
