The GF8 vertical machining center implements FF machining for medium to large dies and molds. Its high-torque, high-speed spindle employs high feedrates at shallow depths of cut to achieve high-efficiency milling. Also provides heavy-duty cutting performance equal to a standard spindle, enabling it to execute deep cuts as well. The spindle features Makino’s oil jet lubrication system to minimize thermal distortion during high-speed operation for enhanced machining accuracy. The GF-Series machines feature Makino’s industry-leading GI control that suppresses vibration even at fast feedrates of 12m/min to substantially enhance machined surface quality and also reduce machining time. Accuracy is improved in the X- and Y-axes, which is most critical for die and mold machining.
Roundness: 7µm/250mm dia.
Very wide and thick slideways permit large table loads – maximum table load 3,000 kg/6,600 lbs. Easy to maintain, the GF8 features a fully enclosed splash guard.
