This 5 axis vertical mill is one of the workhorses of our factory. Its key feature is that it can machine five of the six sides of cubic shaped part, such as a cylinder head, in one setup. This allows us to maintain critical machining tolerances that reduces tolerance build up caused by multiple set ups. The gives our cylinders improved wear performance by maintaining precision alignment of the key moving cylinder elements.
This lathe has built in multi–axis milling capability. This feature allows us to mill complex features into round or square parts that previously required multiple set ups on different machines. The reduction in the number of set ups has the advantage in maintaining key tolerance values and provides precision part placement when doing multi feature milling. The bed length allows for these benefits on parts up to 3 meters long.
This lathe is a precision turning machine with milling capability. It utilizes a automated gantry-style part feeding system that can cost effectively do small batch part runs. Stable running conditions have proven to make parts with reduced tolerance variation. The system also allows for rapid change over of part programs. This is key for Royal’s commitment to provide greater flexibility in cylinder design while maintaining desired delivery time.
