VISION 300

Linear motor technology – available in either the standard 20 HP-30,000 rpm spindle or the 60,000 rpm option.

For years, tool, die, and mold makers have relied on EDM to produce tools in hardened steels that were difficult or impossible to machine. While EDM is certainly up to the job, it adds an extra step to the metal cutting process. And with the constant pressure you’re under to cut lead times and streamline processes, we thought that was just one step too many.

To boost productivity on high-precision, high-quality jobs, you need a tool that knows how to deliver accuracy, quality, precision, and speed—all at the same time.

The Vision 300 is a machining center designed from the ground up for extremely precise, hard-steel machining at high spindle speeds and high traverse rates on large workpieces.

BRINGS BIG PRODUCTIVITY TO BIG PROJECTS

  • In the past, large workpieces used to present large problems for shop operators. The Vision 300 incorporates high-speed spindles (up to 30,000 RPM); extremely accurate, horizontally opposed, linear motor servo drive systems; and high-speed machine controllers into a larger, higher-powered (20 HP) model.

RELIABLE BY DESIGN

  • The Vision 300’s heat-symmetric basic frame structure with a high-grade cast iron base ensures twist rigidity against spindle head motion. Its structure guarantees a reduction in thermal displacement, leading to a balance of high rigidity and a reduced weight. The two horizontally opposed, flat linear motors equipped with powerful magnets ensure clearance in the side-ways, canceling out any attraction forces.

The system’s dual-layer cooling system combines direct forced-oil cooling with a wide-range jacket to separate the spindle head from the casting. Leading to complete heat isolation, the double cooling system positioned between the heat-generating coils is matched by an in-line oil chiller unit to ensure complete control of the coolant temperature. Hot air will never collect at the spindle thanks to the Vision 300’s centralized exhaust and outside airflow system.

FINE WORK AT ANY SKILL LEVEL

  • Coupled with the Fanuc 31i-B5 CNC controller, the Vision 300 is an exceptionally well-built machine tool that can be operated by users of nearly any skill level. With three (3) preprogrammed machining modes available, your workers can produce great results with unsurpassed speed and accuracy—even in the most complex 3D contours.
