Absolute Machine Tools FV vertical, single- and twin-spindle machining centres by Tongtai provide fast automation in high-volume production.

The fixed twin-spindle type processes two individual machining tasks simultaneously. With the addition of an A-axis trunnion table, the FV series instantly becomes a horizontal machining centre, offering two machines in one to reduce floor space and additional machinery costs.

The automatic pallet changer (APC), standard on all machines, changes pallets in as fast as four seconds. The APC is built with triple-point clamping and supporting stability and high quality part surface finishes.

The planetary gear is preferred over a worm-gear type because it provides better position accuracy, zero backlash, long-term durability, and noticeable reduction in overall shop noise.

The APC is driven by servo motors rather than by the traditional hydraulics to save on energy and maintenance costs.

Optional built-in tilt rotary tables or built-in tilt fixtures turn this machine into a 5-sided or 5-axis machining centre. The C-axis rotary table option has a table size of 350 mm for single-spindle or 220 mm for twin-spindle models, both with a 360-degree stroke. The A-axis trunnion rotary table design has a stroke of -30 to 180 degees for both single and twin models.

The automatic tool changer has a built-in carousel. Based on the tool’s position, the FV determines whether to move the spindle or the tool magazine to shorten change time.

Tool capacity is 24 single-spindle or 48 for twin-type with an optional 84-tool magazine. Tool to tool change time, whether retrieved by the spindle or the magazine, is 1.2 seconds.

Absolute Machine Tools is based in Lorain, Ohio.
