Toshiba Machine Co., America (Elk Grove Village, IL) offers the TUE-100, an addition to their TUE Series of vertical boring and turning mills. With a one meter (40 in) table diameter, this VTL is designed for high speed, heavy-duty cutting with a max load up to 2,000 kg (4,400 lb).
The TUE-100 utilizes the same field-tested design as larger TUE models, capitalizing on the identical ram cross section to support the railhead for increased precision. Further improving cutting performance are the two types of bearings to support both the radial and axial loads of the table, along with the high quality cast iron bed, specifically designed for efficient chip removal.
Sitting within a more compact 5 m x 3.5 m x 4 m (200 in x 138 in x 174 in) footprint compared to larger models, the TUE-100 showcases the highest rapid rate available in its class with feed rates up to 2,000 mm/min, thus reducing cycle times and increasing productivity. In addition, the wide range of table speeds allows for exceptional surface finishes on a variety of materials.
Toshiba Machine Co., Ltd. includes approximately 30 regional companies supplying global markets with products including machine tools, plastic injection molding machines, die-casting machines, robotics equipment and semiconductor manufacturing equipment. Toshiba Machine Co., America supports the sales, distribution and service of these products in the North American market.
