The L2100SY multi-tasking wedge type Y-axis CNC turning center from Hyundai WIA Machine America Corporation (Itasca, IL) features a wedge type Y-axis and BMT 65 (or VDI140) turret that enables multi-tasking with synchronized main (8 in) and sub (6 in) spindles to that complex parts can be machined in a single setup. The latest-generation BMT top plate increases tool performance and rigidity by securing each tool with four screws. Cutting is reinforced by all-axis box guideway design.
This machine uses roller contact linear motion guide ways for fast, accurate machining and features a high-precision spindle with elevated resistance to heat distortion in heavy duty cutting for high accuracy, high rigidity and high precision in the most demanding jobs. Its horizontal lathe technology also features some unique characteristics, with box guideways that provide durable rigidity and accuracy and a three-step gearbox that’s ideal for low-torque heavy cuts and high speed fine finishing. Also, a large BMT turret enables a variety of operations in a single setup. Other features include:
- Box Guideways – provide unsurpassed long-term rigidity and accuracy, even under the heaviest of cutting operations.
- Gearless Spindle – Designed for high precision applications, with features that ensure minimal thermal growth at high speeds or under heavy cutting loads.
- Sub Spindle – The 6 in sub spindle (S – Type Configuration) with C axis, offers 0.001 deg unit of index and is driven by the B axis ball screw and servo motor, to ensure high precision and accuracy.
- BMT Turret – Latest generation BMT top plate increases tool performance and rigidity by securing each tool with four screws (VDI140 also available).
Since 1977 Hyundai WIA has been a core division of the Hyundai Motor Group, building the CNC turning centers, machining centers and multitasking machines the automotive manufacturer uses to build its parts. Hyundai WIA Machine America makes that same technology available to the broader manufacturing marketplace in North America. In addition to the Itasca headquarters, the company has a West Coast Solution Center in Cypress, CA, with a full showroom and training opportunities, and an East Coast Tech Center and Parts Support located in Carlstadt, NJ.
