Oldham-based GM CNC
, the exclusive UK distributor of the Victor brad has introduced the compact Vcenter F76 three-axis vertical machining centre (VMC) to the UK market. In a competitive arena with an abundance of options the Victor machine stand out due its build quality and longevity at a cost efficient price point.
GM CNC offers a wide range of Victor machine tools available from stock, a brand hat is recognised for its high productivity and longevity and this is credit to a design and robust construction quality. Despite its compact footprint and space-saving design, the Victor Vcenter F76 packs a punch with its meehanite casting and A frame column design that sets the foundation for high-performance machining.
Built upon this foundation is a powerful 15kW 8,000rev/min BT40 belt driven spindle that traverses over the 840 x 500mm table with X, Y and Z axis travel of 760 x 500 x 510mm respectively. The Victor Vcenter F76 can traverse at rapid feed rates of 32m/min in all three axes.
This productivity is met by industry-leading stability and rigidity that is derived from NN type double roller bearings, 40mm diameter ballscrews, and 30/35/45mm guideways. These three features combine to provide industry leading kinematics that supports heavy-duty material removal rates and subsequently improve productivity levels as well as surface finish and precision.
Furthermore, these attributes eliminate backlash and provide a bi-directional positional accuracy of 0.010mm with a repeatability of 0.007mm that sets the standard in the cost-efficient three-axis VMC segment.
Affirming this build quality is an overall machine weight of 5,260kg with the latest generation of Fanuc CNC control system that drives the powerful and compact machine. The automatic tool change unit is a barrel type system that accommodates up to 24 tools with an extremely fast tool change time of just 2.4sec.
As standard, the Victor Vcenter F76 is delivered with fully enclosed splash guarding, screw-type chip remover, air blast, rigid tapping facility, remote MPG, hand tools and toolbox, T nuts for table slots, three step warning light, and levelling pads.
GM CNC can incorporate a host of options to provide end users with a production centre that suits their exact requirements. Some of the options include a spindle upgrade to 10,000rev/min a 30-tool ATC, an optional 690mm in the Z-axis, rotary tables, coolant and air gun, precision linear scales, oil skimmer, automatic doors, fourth/fifth-axis interface, automatic tool length and part measurement, auto power-off, air conditioning for electrical cabinets, through tool coolant and even spindle cooling units.
The Victor brand of machine tools is backed by the industry leading service and support of GM CNC. Demonstrating its level of commitment to the industry, GM CNC has now opened an on-line shop for Victor spare parts, with most common components stocked at the Oldham headquarters for rapid delivery to keep customers’ machine tools running.
