EAGLE V9G (5-AXIS)

High-speed, high-precision 5-axis machining for large graphite electrodes, mold/die components, hard milling, and more.

The Eagle V9 is designed to be an ultra-rigid 5-axis vertical machining center with the capacity to handle a 1,100-pound workpiece on a 23.6” table surface. The Heidenhain iTNC-640 control unit is mounted on a moveable pedestal for optimal positioning convenience. The Eagle V9 is designed with a side opening in the casting to allow robot loading from either side with pallets up to 19.7” square.

If you’re looking for a robust, powerful tool that’s easy to access, operate, and fine-tune, all so you can better deliver top-tier products quickly and cost-effectively, then we have good news. The Eagle V9 might just be the flexible, functional 5-axis milling machine for you.

DESIGNED FOR THE LONG HAUL

  • Featuring durable, high-rigidity internal components that can take a beating, the Eagle V9 offers superior performance with minimum downtime so you can stay productive and profitable.

BIG UTILITY IN A SMALL PACKAGE

  • The Eagle V9 provides a large, easy-access work area in a small size that, combined with its powerful on-board CNC control, allows workers of nearly any skill level to create top-quality results without requiring much floorspace.

COMES WITH SUPPORT BUILT IN

  • The Eagle V9 might look a little different than our other machines (the blue and yellow color scheme is a bit of a giveaway), but our highly responsive service department still knows it inside and out. You can always count on us to help keep you up and running.

CAPABILITIES:

  • The Eagle V9 gantry-type 5-axis machining center is built and designed to be highly rigid and incredibly precise
  • To achieve high rigidity and fine finish, the Eagle V9 employs a U-shape polymer concrete base, with B axis support and a high-quality rotary table C axis
  • It is also equipped with 36,000-RPM integrated spindle, heavy-duty, roller-type linear guideways, and a dual gantry drive (two ball screws and two linear glass scales) in both the X and Y axis
  • The Eagle V9 is capable of performing high-precision cuts with the X, Y, Z, B, and C axis moving simultaneously
  • Inclined surface machining, spiral contour machining, irregular contour machining, and other complex cutting tasks can be made simple with the Eagle V9
  • The Eagle V9’s B axis uses a zero-backlash gear drive while the C-rotary axis utilizes a direct drive motor, complemented with direct rotary encoders—this is superior to the conventional “worm gear” setup in drive transmission and power efficiencies
  • Travels: X, Y, and Z: 31.5” x 23.62” x 19.69”
  • Rapid Traverse: 1,181 in/min. (X, Y, and Z)
  • Acceleration: 49 ft/s² (1.5G)
