Mach 3 Horizontal Mill
Saeilo Mach 3 Horizontal Mill with Pallet Changer
The system enables one operator to manage the productivity of three machining systems within a single-stream process.
The MACH CELL horizontal machining system provides a solution for medium to high-volume production applications where quick work setups and changeovers as well as high-speed throughput are essential requirements.
The MACH CELL integrates three horizontal machining centers and a central four-pallet rotary transfer unit. Continuous production is achieved by work moving sequentially from a single load/unload station through the three machining stations, with synchronized machining cycles and in-process loading and unloading.
Machining stations are the MACH 3A, column-traverse HMC’s with 300 mm pallets.
15.75″ (X), 13.78″ (Y), 15.75″ (Z)
40-taper spindles, powered by 10 hp, 6,000 rpm drives with 2.5 second acceleration/deceleration over the full speed range.
Carousel-type automatic tool changers utilize 20 CAT-40 tools (for a system total of 60 tools), with 2.5 second tool exchange.
Positioning speed on all axes is 945 ipm with [+ or -] 0.0002″ accuracy and [+ or -] 0.00012″ repeatability.
Each station is run by its own Fanuc 0-MC control with total system integration managed through an Allen-Bradley SLC-500 controller.
Pallet load capacity at each station is 550 lbs, supporting maximum work dimensions of 30″ diameter by 18″ high. The four-pallet rotary transfer unit is powered by an AC digital servo with hydraulically actuated lift and lock mechanisms and clamp-to-clamp transfer time of 9 seconds. Part indexing at each station in 1-degree increments provides machining access to multiple part surfaces in single setups.
