At Mach 2010, CMZ will exhibit six of its CNC turning machines from its TC, TB and TL ranges.

The demonstrations will highlight the spindle, axis and driven tool motors, rigid construction principles and advanced Fanuc control built into all CMZ machines.

The show will also see the UK debut of the gantry loading version of CMZ’s TC range.

The featured machine, a TC25, is a 250mm-diameter turning centre available with Y-axis, driven tooling and subspindle.

The company’s three machine ranges include 150 machines – from basic two-axis machines up to multi-axis gantry systems – in sizes from 46mm bar up to 500mm chuck capacity.

Models include versions with Y-axis, driven tools, subspindle, CNC tailstock axis, long and short bed configurations and gantry loading.

There are also around 50 options for each model, including different turret size and configuration, tailstocks, chuck diameter and bore and spindle power, as well as control-function options such as tool-load monitoring and tool-life management.

The machines are all built using Fanuc HVi drive motors.

Spindle drives up to 48kW combined with 17kW driven tools give high machining power.

The rigid construction, which includes box guide-ways on all but the smallest machines, gives the rigidity and stability to get the most out of this power, while maintaining accuracy, surface finish and tool life.

CMZ has upgraded its machines to the latest generation Fanuc 30 Series control.

This advanced CNC makes internal calculations to a resolution of 1,000th of a micron – 10 times finer than previous Fanuc controls – and servo feedback takes 1msec instead of 8msec on the 18 and 21 Series controls.

All of this gives shorter acceleration time for the axes, less mechanical fatigue, better surface finish and higher accuracy.

Visitors to the CMZ stand will also have the chance to get a taster of a range of twin-spindle, multi-turret machines, due to be launched in 2010.
