ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, March 8, 2021
As a manufacturer how do you achieve the highest capability and competitive advantage? You already know you need to be able to produce consistent, repeatable results that are as close to their exact specifications as possible.
When it comes to creating complex parts that don’t need additional processing or oversight, the precision and accuracy of your CNC machine tool are imperative. As a result, Shibaura Machine has designed and built our CNC machine tools to improve the entire workflow of the shop floor, being able to tackle the most exacting requirements and produce high-quality products with great precision.
Precision Machine Tools Capabilities
Whether your goal is to produce small or large parts, tight tolerance parts that have complex geometries you will want to ensure you have a Precision Machine Tool. Shibaura Machine provides certain features on our machines to ensure they can achieve accurate high precision parts:
- Tightly held manufacturing tolerances on major machine subcomponents (e.g. tables, spindles, tool changers, crossrails, and gearboxes) to ensure a strong machine foundation
- CNC control, spindle, and closed-loop servo motor package offering the latest digital compensation capability that allows the machinist to manage spindle and servo axes performance
- Tightly controlled machine alignment and geometry standards with linear and rotary axes scales to improve machine axes accuracy and repeatability
- Spindle compensation system options to minimize thermal errors
- Machine thermally symmetrical bed design for efficient machine performance which makes it easier to produce complex parts
- Hydraulic and coolant chiller options are available to minimize thermal errors
The precision capabilities of Shibaura Machine Tools allow you to produce superior quality parts that are highly accurate and repeatable. Contact a Shibaura Machine team member to learn more.
