All KAFO Double Column Machining Centres are manufactured to the highest quality standards, thus ensuring a long operational life and all machines are available with a comprehensive range of machine tool accessories. KAFO’s B/BMC Series of double column machining centres are built from a thermal-symmetric box design base with high static and dynamic stiffness to provide accurate and superior engineering quality during heavy cutting operations, which in turn is designed to extend the cutting tools’ lifespan.
B/BMC Series’ Superior Body Structure and Design:
The machine bed, column, spindle-head, cross slides and table are all analysed and optimised by FEM tests. This design ensures high stability and rigidity of the machine, thus making it suitable for heavy-duty machining of all kinds of materials.
Each axis is driven by a large diameter, precision-ground, pre-loaded and double anchored ballscrew providing the highest possible accuracy, ultra-fast feed rates and maximum feed thrust. The double column machining centres with travel of over 3 metres are equipped with an integral cooling system through the ballscrew on the X-axis to alleviate thermal expansion, resulting in higher positioning accuracy.
