FlexDrill CNC's new TRD family of vertical machining centers drills, mills, taps and bevels large or long parts in a single set-up. Alternately, the long open bed, coupled with the movable safety light curtain, allows multiple set-ups, so that while the TRD is machining one part, another is being loaded (or offloaded). This dramatically increases productivity of the machines uptime. The open design provides unrestricted access which makes loading and unloading easier and faster. With a 2-foot bed width and lengths from 10 to 80 feet, The TRD is ideal for machining of long products like tube, or pipe, cutting keyways, and more.
The TRD features a monoblock welded steel frame with high rigidity and a t-slot machine bed. Spindle taper of CT or BT 40 are available, in speeds from 2000 to 6000 RPM, with a max torque capability of 184 ft/lbs. This proven product line features maximum travel rate of 1181 in/min along the x axis, 984 in/min along the y axis and 165 in/min along the z axis. Spindle nose to table distance from 8.75” to 24.75”.
Standard unit runs on 480V and includes mobile light-curtain safety barriers, frame with chip conveyor and t-slotted table, flood coolant pump and tank, and automatic tool calibrator. The 12” color touch screen is water-resistant and durable enough to provide years of service. Oversized double hung precision linear guideways ensure smooth and precise movement on all axes. All moving parts are self-lubricating on all axes. A programmable servo motor drives the spindle, while a 10-compartment automatic tool change ensures capacity for virtually any application.
Control on the FlexDrill CNC is simple yet powerful, with conversational and ISO G&M-code programming for versatile 3 axis CNC machining along with an optional 4th axis. Equipped with a color touch screen control, 40 GB of program storage, and 50 programmable zero points. Programs can be loaded through USB or through and ethernet connection. Extensive training is provided, both in-plant and on-site.
The TRD is available in bed sizes from 10-foot to 80-foot, with custom length beds available to suit specific requirements. Contact factory for additional information.
