Designed with accuracy in mind –technologyadopted by AMADA MACHINE TOOLSfor a purposeThermal expansion of the structure due to the cutting and feeding operation has considerableeffects on changes in the dimensions of the work to be processed.The products of AMADA MACHINE TOOLS are configured so that the effects of heatgeneration are minimized.1Horizontal design that maintains highaccuracy and stabilityCompact casting with integral ways providessuperior support. Scraping and fitting of all slidingsurfaces creates excellent vibration dampening.Horizontal alignment lowers the center of gravityprocessing accuracy for the long term.2The distance from the cutting tools to thespindle can be minimizedThe longer the distance from the spindle to the cuttingtools, the greater the increase in thermal displacement.AMADA MACHINE TOOLS minimizes the distance fromthe tooling to the spindle and limits the effects of thermalgrowth.3

3The pre-tension structure cancels the heatgenerationThe bearing housing of the ball screw is positioned theshortest distance from the spindle to reduce thermalgrowth. The highly reliable pre-tensioned structure isutilized to counteract the heat generation of the ball screw.4Securely guarded by stainless coversA space is created between the casting and the way cover.The stainless steel cover has low thermal conductivity. Thedesign limits the transfer of heat from the cutting fluid andthe machining chips, maintaining superior dimensionalaccuracy and stability.A lesser amount of compensations is required as the thermal displacement is reduced. Automatic operation or theoperation of multiple machines improves productivity, while reducing labor costs due to superior machine stability.The change of a dimension when production is stopped for a short time is small, so conforming parts can be producedupon re-start.lThe data above is based on a case example. The described data may not be obtained depending on the cutting conditions etc4

Simultaneous 5-axis control multi-functionIn high-accuracy small article processing, flexibleproduction and higher efficiency are required. Thenew-generation, simultaneous 5-axis control multifunctionmachine Mi-8 combines AMADA MACHINETOOLS’ lathe technologies to meet these needs.Characteristic1An original form combining beauty and utilityDesigned for operability based on the ergonomics, the machine is compact and has a low center of gravity.It can be installed in a space of just 4 m 2 while realizing high rigidity, beauty and utility. As the total height isapproximately 1.7 m, it is also superior in visibility in the factory. It can be automated by attaching the rotarystocker, which the robot is built-in to retain compactness.176021001560 *1 2190630 *2 (mm)*1 Dimensions of this machine*2 Dimensions of stockerCharacteristic2Simultaneous 5-axis controlThe rotation point (A-axis) is attached to the primaryspindle, and simultaneous 5-axis control is realized.This enables processing of an oblique hole, which is notpossible with other turning centers. As processing by onechucking is achieved, misalignment is eliminated.5

Characteristic3High-rigidity turretThe milling spindle is located in the rear of the turret. A highaccuracy coupling controls the turret position. The lathespindle has superior roundness and is capable of 8000rpm.Characteristic4ATC & high-speed spindleTwenty station “HSK style” tool changer is standardequipment. Tool change time is less than 6 seconds, sothe optimum tool can be used with out interferences. Themilling spindle is 20,000 rpm and machining with smalldiameter tools is manageable with a higher degree ofaccuracy.Characteristic5Improvement of accuracy and partprocessingBy utilizing the “A” axis, the tool can be positioned tomaximize the machining conditions. Parts with curved orcomplex surfaces can be easily machined. Improved partaccuracy and reduction in cycle times due to the flexibilityof the five-axis configuration.Characteristic6Programming by the latest CAMProcessing of complex shapes can be programmed quicklyand simply using the latest CAM technology. This reducesthe time required for processing and confirmation.Sample workMaximum processing size of Mi-86
