Heavy Duty CNC Machining Centre
With our Heavy duty CNC Machining Centre machining processes can be achieved at high speed with reliable repeatability and quality. Our range is built on webbed cast columns & bases to eliminate vibration and enable a better cutting finish.
Fitted with industry leading controls, Fanuc 0i MF, Heidenhain TNC 620 0r 640 conversational, Siemens 828D or 840D with Shopmill conversational.
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.
So to aid production rigid tapping is standard, as is pneumatic counterbalance. On the random toolchanger, 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 vibation 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 Millimetre. 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 envolope 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 prefered 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 TNC 620 & 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.
