The V22 Graphite features a low-vibration, high-speed spindle and Makino’s proprietary SGI.4 control to deliver high-accuracy, high-speed machining. The V22 Graphite has a fully enclosed splash guard that completely seals graphite dust inside for a clean shop environment. Besides sealing graphite dust, dry machining of steel and castings is also possible.
In addition, the V22 Graphite is outfitted with the Makino Professional 5 control utilizing a Windows CE operating system to provide a stable, secure platform with reliable performance on the NC side, while providing an operator-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). This latest-generation machine tool control offers large color touch-sensitive, on-screen, menu-driven applications. Icons provide “hot links” and quick access to critical information that may be required by the operator. In addition, the new control platform provides all of the functions typical of a PC (cut, paste, copy, find, replace, etc.) that are rarely available on a machine tool control. Advanced data management technology and Makino’s proprietary, next-generation Super Geometric Intelligence (SGI.4) servo control deliver the lowest cycle times achievable by reducing machining cycle times on dies, complex cavities and cores by as much as 40 percent when compared to most other control technologies.
