Hwacheon SIRIUS-UL+: The highly productive Vertical Machining Center that you need to know more about

The SIRIUS-UL+ is manufactured to perfection with Hwacheon's workmanship that is quality recognized throughout the industry. The high-performance spindle, integrating Hwacheon's Oil-Jet Cooling technology, ensures consistent quality results after hours and hours of operation. The machine's Optimal Machining system offers a total production solution, from tool selection to final product.

The VMC is designed using 3D simulation and finite element method (FEM) analysis to maximize structural rigidity. The rigid frame features a bilateral gate structure that firmly supports the X-axis drive. It is designed to divert the load, vibration and heat from the upper section of the machine evenly throughout the frame. These features contribute to a stable feed drive after hours of operation, the company says. The short distance between the X-axis drive and the tool’s point of contact is said to maintain rigidity and enhance precision.

Software components monitor different variables related to work environment and machining conditions and make adjustments to increase quality and efficiency. The software was developed to increase thermal accuracy and machining performance.

Don't wait to learn more about the best kept secret in the Industry from your Exclusive Hwacheon dealer- Premier Machine Tool Midwest for the state of Wisconsin and UP of Michigan
