The Mecal "KOSMOS TM MMI" is a floor type vertical spindle 4 axis (X, Y, Z, A) CNC machining center designed to work on extruded aluminum, light alloy and light steel materials.
The machine is equipped with a 6 kW, 18000 rpm electro-spindle with ISO 30 tool holder system and a 10 tools capacity magazine as standard.
CNC unit of the machine performs milling operations through linear and circular interpolation (compound movements) on 3 axes (X-Y-Z). A is the clamping beam rotation axis that allows the work-piece to be rotated within 250° (±125°) around X-axis. This enables machining on any surface generated by rotation of the work-piece with standard tools. Spindle can work on 3 faces with standard tools and work on both ends with disc cutter (end-milling operations) or aggregates.
The machine can be programmed using Mecal's 3D CAM software as well as Mecal G codes.
