The QuickTECH i-42 / i-60 Twin is a compact, high precision, high production CNC mill/turn center cast from Meehanite iron. Available in both 42mm and 60mm bar capacities, this unique bar processing center provides complete part machining including all complex milling functions. The i-42 Twin /i-60 Twin features 7 axes, 2 turning spindles, 1 milling spindle, 1 B-axis, and a total capacity of 30 tools . A 4-axis (X,Y,Z,B) gang type vertical tool post is shared between each C axis spindle.
The main spindle sports a 15 HP high torque spindle motor. The sub-spindle is equipped with a 7.5 HP high torque integral spindle motor for backworking. The main spindle has a 42mm bar capacity (60mm for i-60) and the sub-spindle has 30mm bar capacity. Both spindles feature a full continuous C-axis with braking system and are both standard with 42mm DIN-173E-42B collet chucks (60mm DIN-185E-60B for i-60). The main and sub-spindle are synchronized for fast and accurate part transfer. Both spindles employ P4 high precision bearings for stability and heavy cutting ability.
A unique single 4-axis gang tooling system consisting of linear X,Y, and Z axes plus a rotary B-axis serves both spindles. The tool post features 9 O.D. turning tools, 9 I.D. turning tools, and 12 live tools. The live tools are mounted in a continuous 360° B-axis. The live tools are powered by a 2 HP spindle motor. Rigid tapping is standard. The tool post has a Y-axis for off-center milling operations. Tool change time is near ZERO. In addition our standard tooling system is Kennametal KM-25 quick change. KM-25 bases are supplied with the machine for O.D. turning tools.
