APEC (Asia Pacific Elite Corp), known for large linear-drive gantry machining centers, debuts new 2-axis high speed, high power, HSK-63A spindle head for GM Series. The latest cutting tool technologies and machining strategies are a great way to increase productivity within the aerospace industry, but demand a machine specifically suited to the task. This new spindle is equipped with 167HP and 30,000rpm, ensuring the G and GM Series one of the highest non-ferrous material removal rates in the market. It also features innovative direct drive motors, enabling highly dynamic 5-axis contouring capabilities. With this spindle, APEC’s 5-axis feed rates rival those of 3-axis machining centers.
The G and GM-Series have a high rigidity structure design, featuring a symmetrical “box-in-box” structure of cross-beam and saddle. Box-in-box structure distributes force equally to improve deformation and to perform at the highest accuracy while high-speed machining. APEC’s world-class force flow design decreases thermal deformation and weight of moving parts, while dual drives ensure smooth cutting and the best part quality available.
APEC’s linear drive design is ideal for aerospace manufacturing because it allows for large parts production 1.5-2 times quicker than standard ball screw bridge mill design. The X, Y, and Z axes feature linear motors, linear scales, and rigid linear guideways. Linear motor drives work alongside the spindle to improve production capabilities by eliminating backlash, transmission loss, and wear. G and GM-Series rapid traverse up to 60m/min and acceleration of 5 m/sec for increased overall production. Machines are available from 12’ up to 98’ in length.
APEC is a subsidiary of the Tongtai Group specializing in the design, manufacturing, and sale of large gantry high-speed 5-axis machine tools. These machines can be widely applied to most industries from aerospace, transportation, and solar energy.
