TDT introduces KAFO KFO-629-5AX 5-axis machining centre

Kao Fong Machinery (KAFO) has released its KFO-620-5AX 5-axis machining centre into the UK market via sole agent, TDT Technology.

The KFO-620-5AX is of travelling-column structure. Its 620 by 520 by 460 mm X, Y and Z axes employ heavy duty, roller-type linear guideways, all of which are covered with stainless steel, waterproof covers.

Either 3+2 or 5-axis simultaneous machining is facilitated by the machine'srotary/tilting table. The B-axis offers tilt of -40°to +110°, while the C-axis delivers 360° of continuous rotation.

Both the B and C axes are servo-motor-driven, with an option for direct drive motors. Supplied by LCM of Italy, direct drive's benefit is that there is no worm and wheel to damage, in the event of a collision.

The KFO-620-5AX is supplied as standard with a 12,000 rpm direct drive spindle.
