EAGLE V5C (5-AXIS)

A fast, flexible 5-axis machining solution built to deliver the highest degree of precision needed for today’s workpieces.

There’s nothing more frustrating than pouring time, energy, and resources into a machine fleet that—despite your best efforts—just can’t seem to return the favor. Then you throw the new challenges facing today’s machine shops into the mix: things like an ever-shrinking skilled labor pool, the need to be faster and more efficient than ever via automation, and other thorny problems.

Relief for the challenging issues facing your machine shop comes on swift wings—in the form of the Eagle V5C: a high-speed, ultra-rigid 5-axis vertical machining center (VMC) with enhanced cooling controls for unparalleled performance in any situation or environment.

HEAVY-DUTY PERFORMANCE YOU CAN COUNT ON

  • Built and designed highly rigid and incredible precision, the Eagle V5C gantry-type 5-axis VMC is one machine your workers, your customers, and your bottom line can all count on. Whatever the job or timeline, you can trust the Eagle line’s superior craftsmanship and components to carry the day.

EASY, INTUITIVE OPERATION THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

  • The Eagle V5C comes with an advanced CNC control unit designed to help your operators get the most out of your investment—both in the short term and well into the future. Easy to train and easy to operate, the V5C brings efficient, cost-effective labor to the middle of your shop floor.

FLEXIBLE, FUTURE-FRIENDLY DESIGN

  • Automation isn’t just a buzzword. It’s your ticket to new levels of efficiency and profitability for your business. That’s why every machine in our Eagle line is prepared for automation—as a single machine, inside a standalone cell, or as part of a full, integrated manufacturing line.

The Eagle V5C (Coolant Version) is designed to be an ultra-rigid 5-axis vertical machining center with the capacity to handle a 440-pound workpiece on a 15.75” rotary table surface. The Heidenhain TNC-640 control unit with a 17” display is mounted on a moveable pedestal for optimal positioning convenience. The Eagle V5C is designed with a side opening in the casting to allow robot loading from the right side with pallets up to 15.7” square.

CAPABILITIES:

  • Can handle a 440-pound workpiece on a 15.75” table surface
  • Allows robot loading from the right side with pallets up to 15.7” square via side opening design
  • Achieves high machine rigidity, vibration dampening, working precision, and finish quality via a U-shape polymer concrete base for best vibration dampening and higher weight, resulting in optimum behavior between moving and static mass
  • Hits high working speeds via a 33-HP, 36,000-RPM integrated spindle, -heavy-duty, roller-type linear guideways, and large-diameter ball screws and linear glass scales in both the X and Y axis
  • Integrated high-dynamic 4th/5th axis rotary table provides direct drive motors to both axes
  • Performs high-precision cuts with the X, Y, Z, B, and C axis moving simultaneously
  • Separate servo motors and shaft encoders are used to provide both high-speed and high-accuracy table positioning
  • Can easily handle surface machining, spiral contour machining, irregular contour machining, and other complex cutting tasks
  • Superior drive mobility and power efficiency compared to conventional worm gear setup machines thanks to zero-backlash B axis gear and C-rotary axis direct drive motor with rotary encoders
  • The P3 coolant system provides high pressure through tool coolant along with filtration and a chip conveyor
  • Extraordinary heat monitoring and control available through “Active Temperature Control,” which includes thermal sensors and active cooling lines running throughout the machine structure
