Heavy Duty CNC Machining Centre.
Ajax has been selling reliable heavy duty CNC vertical machining centre machines for a long time. We use the best products to create a solid reliable machine that will perform with the best of them. With large surface area slides stable high power stock removal is easy and aids longer tool life. Give one of our engineers a call or please email us to discuss your needs.
Fitted with industry leading controls, Fanuc 0i MF Plus, Heidenhain TNC 620 0r 640 conversational, Siemens 828D or 840D with Shopmill conversational and the Fagor 8058 elite or the fully blown 8060. CE & CA Marked as standard.
High Precision Calibrated.
Our machines are high precision calibrated using a Renishaw laser to give us super high precision. We then check this and all the alignments with the Renishaw Ballbar system which checks the machine while it is performing a circular move in 2 axis.
Our range is built on webbed cast columns & bases to eliminate vibration and enable a better cutting finish. So to aid production rigid tapping is standard, as is pneumatic counterbalance. On the random tool-changer, an air blast is used to clean the spindle prior to the next one entering, air blast is also used to clean the work piece while machining. Thus bringing together the perfect balance of quality reliability & price.
Because you want a stable cutting platform we have wide ground slides running on Turcite B. So what does this mean, it means less vibration which gives better cutting performance, less tip wear and a better finish.
For us accuracy is very important at Ajax, we are one of very few companies in the UK who have a Renishaw XL80 laser measurement machine. It can measure down to a Nano of movement which is a 1000′ th of a Micron which is 1000′ th of a Millimeter. We then use this data to calibrate the machine down to very high accuracy. And we can do this on your site if required and re do this on an annual basis to keep your machine accurate. Our normal results get machines over the entire working envelope down to less than +/- 0.002 most of our competitors are way over this and cannot test it or prove it.
Because this range of machining centres is built to a high quality standard without a high price. So only the best quality products are used, high quality is a must. So we use Heidenhain as the preferred control.
Thus bringing together the perfect balance of quality reliability & price. Ajax works with Fanuc to install the Fanuc 0i MF control with the option on Manual Guide i to make it easy to program in conversational form.
Heidenhain with options of the TNC320 base level analogue control or the TNC620 & 640 controls, they all have the same programming language with the TNC640 having replaced the TNC530 as the Heidenhain flagship control.
Siemens 828D and 840D are both available with the option of shopmill conversational software.
Fagor 8055 & 8065 conversational controls are also available.
Delivery & Installation.
Our delivery companies can deliver your machine and offload it with a variety of ways. Then either drive it in with a versa lift or skate it in to position. Then once its there our fully trained engineers will level and commission it. Once this is done we will train you in its operation.
