High Accuracy or Surface Finish Requirements? You Don’t Have to Choose.
ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, March 01, 2022 -
Speeding up cycle times and part production is something shops have been in hot pursuit of for years. However, this isn’t the only way to impact profitability. Shops also need to be able to ensure that they are able to maintain the workpiece accuracy and surface finish requirements.
Is it possible to achieve maximum efficiency while meeting these requirements? There are a few factors to consider when looking into machine tools that will allow you to maintain performance while ensuring high quality parts.
Creating a Clear Advantage
Having a machine tool that is built to meet workpiece requirements while ensuring accuracy is the best way to achieve it all. Shibaura Machine’s CNC machine tools are designed to help manufacturers increase workload and metal removal rates, while improving accuracy and part quality.
Engineered with features to ensure high quality workpieces are achieved such as:
- Latest technology capabilities to allow the machinist to manage spindle and servo axes performance
- Controlled machine alignment and geometries with linear and rotary axes scales to allow for improved accuracy and repeatability
- Tight tolerances on major machine subcomponents to ensure a quality machine
In order to minimize thermal displacement seen in production, Shibaura Machine has taken specific measures. The spindle compensation system can assist in managing thermal variations. And in order to make complex parts easier to produce, the machine design has been specifically engineered for highly efficient machine performance.
It is also critical to leverage technology to enable your CNC machine to run unattended and complete parts in one set-up on the machine tool. Shibaura Machine’s proprietary TOSNUC CNC control offers features such as the Teaching Function that allow even less experienced operators to perform machining operations. Your shop will see greater control over throughput being more machine dependent vs. operator dependent.
Challenge the Competition
Gain your competitive edge by producing high quality parts with the right machine tool and technology. Shibaura Machine is committed to helping shops change standards with machine tool solutions that don’t compromise on surface finish and accuracy capabilities.
