FlexDrill CNC (Wapakoneta, OH) offers the TRD family of vertical machining centers which drills, mills, taps and bevels large or long parts in a single set-up in. 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 machine’s 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.
- A 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. The TRD is available in bed sizes from 10-foot to 80-foot, with custom length beds available to suit specific requirements. It will be featured at FabTech 2018, Nov. 6-8, at booth #B5967.
