WARD CNC TURNS WITH STYLE AT MACH 2010

With eight lathes and turning centres being displayed at MACH Ward CNC will forcibly demonstrate how its comprehensive machine portfolio can provide users with a wide variety machines to suit a wide variety of turning/turning centre demands.

Six machines from the Hyundai-Kia range will be represented by various models from compact 2 axis machines to multi axis twin spindle turn/mill centres.

Being demonstrated under power, the SKT 180-TTSY multi-tasking twin spindle turning centre with Y axis has a maximum turning diameter and length of 230 mm and 700 mm, respectively. The 65 mm bar capacity machine has spindle speeds (on both spindles) of 5,000 rev/min and has 2 x 12 station turrets. Travels in X, Z, ZB and Y are 165/190 mm, 700 mm, 720 mm and 100 mm, respectively, and rapid traverse rates in X, Z, ZB and Y are 20 m/min, 40 m/min, 40 m/min and 7.5 m/min, respectively.

Also under power, the SKT 2100 multi-tasking mill/turn centre with Y axis has a maximum turning diameter and length of 240 mm and 530 mm, respectively. This 65 mm bar capacity machine has spindle speeds of 4,000 rev/min (main spindle) and 6,000 rev/min (sub-spindle) and features a 12-tool station turret. Travels in X, Z, ZB and Y are 220 mm, 550 mm, 750 mm and 80 mm, respectively, and rapid traverse rates in X and Z are 36 m/min, 30 m/min in ZB and 10m/min in Y.

The 65 mm bar capacity SKT-200 two-axis lathe with a compact space saving design has a maximum turning diameter and length of 290 mm and 300 mm, respectively, spindle speeds of 4,000 rev/min from a 15 kW motor, X and Z axes travels of 210 mm and 330 mm, respectively, with complementary traverse rates of 36 m/min in both axes.

Continuing the two-axis theme, the SKT-400LC has a maximum turning diameter and length of 630 mm and 2,150 mm, respectively. This 117 mm bar capacity machine has spindle speeds of 2,000 rev/min from the 37 kW motor and X and Z axes travels of 320 mm and 2,200 mm, respectively, with traverse rates of 20 m/min in both axes.


Also from the Hyundai-Kia stable, the heavy cutting SKT-300 two-axis CNC lathe on show has a maximum turning diameter and length of 560 mm and 720 mm, respectively. This 90 mm bar capacity machine has spindle speeds of 2,500 rev/min from the 26 kW motor and X and Z axes travels of 355 mm and 750 mm, respectively, with traverse rates of 20 m/min and 24 m/min in X and Z, respectively. This popular model features a heavy duty geared headstock for high torque characteristics along with solid hardened and ground slideways.

Complementing these will be the Hankook Protec 9NC x 4000 heavy-duty flat bed lathe. This large-capacity machine has a maximum turning diameter and length of 950 mm and 3,845 mm, plus spindle speeds of 630 rev/min from the 30 kW motor. Travels in X and Z are 535 mm and 3,845 mm The 9NC model has a 254 mm spindle bore and front and rear chucks..

Completing Ward CNC's horizontal configuration turning display - and also under power - will be the Hankook VTC-100 3-Axis ram type, high-performance vertical lathe with C-Axis and driven tools. This has a 1,000 mm diameter table and a maximum turning diameter and height of 1,250 mm and 800 mm, respectively. The machine can accommodate workpieces weighing 4,000 Kgs, has a 30/37 kW main motor and an ATC of 24 tools.
