Standard & High Speed Vertical Machining Centers



Our habit of listening closely to the requirements of customers has led to the development of a wide range of vertical machining centers. The machine models have continuously evolved to suit customer needs making AMS the most preferred vertical machining center manufacturer in the country. Majority of AMS products developed belong to the standard vertical machining center (VMC) series and the high-speed VMC series. The standard VMCs are the work-horses which provide high value for investment in terms of the cost per component. The standard VMCs range in size across the product spectrum with the smallest machinable component size of 250mm cube to the largest component size of 800mm cube.

The high speed VMCs are much faster in terms of the rapid traverses and the spindle speeds of the machine. This facilitates the reduction in the min-cutting time and hence reduction in total cycle time. These machines are suitable for volume productions with large batch quantities. The machine's structure is typically designed and tested to allow high speed slide traverse.

Rich engineering experience at AMS has facilitated the development of machines with the most suitable parts for machining process. All machines have structural components made of cast iron which are machined to provide and retain high built in accuracies. Cast iron components are known to have better vibration damping capabilities. The precision components such as the ball screws, bearings and linear motion guide ways are bought out from some of the most reliable & leading manufactures in the world. The machines are designed, manufactured, assembled and tested to perform under very demanding working conditions. The vertical machining centers are available with a myriad of options to choose from. Most of the machines models can be offered wit productivity enhancers such as coolant through spindle, automatic pallet changers (APC), and hydraulically or pneumatically actuated work-holding fixtures.

Based on the component material and cutting process, the motors are chosen to achieve the necessary optimum speed or torque. The machine design is optimized to consume lesser time for non-cutting processes.

High Speed Cartridge Spindle

The spindle which is considered as the heart of the machine is manufactured and assembled with utmost care. The VMC models have spindle tool shank sizes of BT30, BT40 or BT50.

For applications requiring higher tool clamping force HSK tapers (A50,A63 and A100) are also provided as an option.

The spindles are driven either directly or indirectly by AC spindle motors manufactures by FANUC or Siemens.
