New Makino®-built DA300 Automation Package Maximizes Small, Intricate Parts and Component Processing and Lights-Out Capability
Makino has announced it has bundled its industry-leading DA300 five-axis vertical machining center with a new, integrated, all-in-one automation package. Included in this new package are a double automatic tool changer (ATC) with a tool capacity of up to 118 tools, a 40-pallet workpiece palletizing system and an advanced digital interface that complements the machining center’s Makino Professional 6™ (Pro-6) control. The DA300 Automation Package can significantly increase the speed, accuracy and precision of small, complex part and component production in market areas such as:
- Industrial hydraulic and pneumatics elements
- Optical, electrical and semiconductor markets
- Medical components
- Die-cast parts
- Automotive, aircraft and aerospace parts and components
- Production machining
In a Class by Itself
The DA300 Automation Package includes an integrated chuck, a new pallet interface, a newly developed cell controller and an integrated automation system – all designed by Makino.
The Makino Automation Package delivers superior pallet location and repeatability by using a unique and proprietary polygonal taper pallet with HSK-A125 for the machine-to-pallet interface. The system’s clamping, holding and torque capabilities to manage cutting forces, allow for robust machining of small, complex parts.
The DA300 vertical machining center offers superior stiffness and rigidity. It features highly responsive A- and C-axis tables with high-speed DD motors (traverse rate: A-axis 100 min-1 and C-axis 150 min-1).
The DA300 Automation Package includes new pallet management software that complements the Makino Pro-6 controller and allows one-screen management and operation. The operator-friendly machining and automation system helps visualize, select, prioritize and manage parts in queue based on priority. An operator can easily see when a process starts and stops and receive up-to-the-minute status information. Color-coded information and data associated with the pallet help the operator understand the status and the order of transportation of each pallet.
The DA300 Automation Package maximizes system performance and functionality and helps improve company productivity and profitability, especially unattended.
