iQ500 Vertical Machining Centers


iQ500 Micro Milling Machine for Ultra Precision Performance
The iQ500 is the ideal, larger precision micro milling machine for manufacturers of LED tooling, optic surface finishes and other high-tolerance machining applications. The machine delivers wide ranging capabilities from sub-micron machining accuracy and repeatability up to macro-scale machining applications.
 
The iQ500 micro milling machine is built with a state-of-the-art linear motor design, 0.005-micron scale feedback and unparalleled component temperature control.  Together, these features provide precise and predictable machining results, eliminating continuous process parameter adjustments due to tool positioning error and thermal distortion. The machine can effectively measure tool lengths to sub-micron levels of accuracy and repeatability, providing for simple and predictable tool blends with various cutting tools, spindle speeds and machining depths. Its large work envelope, wide-ranging travels, and flexible spindle design provide for high utility in micro part production, as well as groundbreaking research and development.

Makino’s 45,000-rpm, HSK-E32 spindle—based upon its patented core-cooling, under-race and jacket spindle temperature control system—virtually eliminates thermal growth, deflection or vibration, even during long hours of high-speed machining.
To ensure microscopic blending and matching of surfaces machined with different tools, the iQ500 integrates the proprietary Makino Hybrid Automatic Tool Length Measurement System (HyATLM). A 40-tool magazine ensures a wide variety of tooling to address an extensive variety of projects.

The user-friendly, Makino Professional 6 control with Makino’s proprietary, next-generation Super Geometric Intelligence (SGI.5) software—developed specifically for high-feedrate, tight-tolerance machining of complex, 3-D contoured shapes involving continuous tiny blocks of NC data—ensures production rates faster than standard CNC systems while maintaining unsurpassed accuracy.
The iQ500 Precision Micromachining Center represents the future of micro machining.
