A new vertical machining model has been added to Hyundai WIA’s Value Master CNC series: the F650VM was developed for performance and affordability, and offered with several high-performance options.  The standard design of the multi-axis F650VM — X-axis, 51.2 in.; Y-axis, 26.4 in.; and Z-axis, 25 in. — includesa swing-arm tool changer that holds 30 tools, Thru Spindle coolant delivery, a Big Plus spindle,-Rigid Tapping, and a 10.4-in. color LCD.

The machine’s designers indicate the Value Master F650VM is well suited for small- to mid-sized job shops, yet capable of handling high-volume, 24/7 machining projects. 

The bed, column and saddle of Hyundai WIA’s Value Master Series are designed using finite element analysis to ensure powerful cutting and agility, and built from Meehanite cast iron to ensure the structural rigidity that will absorb vibration and endure heavy-duty cutting without risk of deformation.

All machine axes are driven by high-precision double-nut ballscrews, and thedouble pretension design provides outstanding positioning and repeatability with virtually no thermal growth. All ballscrews are connected directly to the servo drive motors without gears or belts, to reduce backlash. High-speed movement is achieved by the use of linear motion guide ways in all three axes, which promotes productivity by reducing non-cutting time and decreasing machining time.

Traverse movements are quoted as 1,418 ipm (36 m/min) in X- and Y-axes, and 1,182 ipm (30 m/min) in Z-axis.
