DMC / JET / SV Heavy Duty / VMC Series
DTS UK Ltd are the chosen supplier of Johnford’s vertical milling machining centers which are a combination of speed, rigidity and precision in a box way geared head package.
Positioning the workpiece on a vertical spindle, the tools come from the tool holder and cut across the top of the workpiece. These C frame machines feature solid heavily ribbed Meehanite cast iron eliminating vibration and ensuring excellent surface finishes and long cutting tool life which separate them as a CNC vertical milling machine.
Four oversized box ways fully support the machine’s saddle and work table delivering outstanding X axis accuracy over the full travel range of the machine. This is critical when machining heavy workpieces to avoid deflection and is a key factor in maintaining part accuracy and precision. All sliding surface areas and gibs are coated with Turcite-B and hand-scraped for perfect fit and alignment.
Optimum alignment of the motor and gearbox ensures no offset and guarantees steady smooth movement of the headstock along the Z axis. This design significantly reduces torsion on the headstock and ensures optimum rigidity, long term accuracy and repeatability. Large diameter pre-tensioned ballscrews have a double-nut preloaded design eliminating the potential thermal growth and promote high accuracy and high-speed positioning for this range vertical machining centers.
