Ultra takes delivery of new VM3 5 axis CNC mill
Ultra Precision took delivery of their latest CNC mill with 5th axis trunnion during the first week of September. The VM3 CNC mill supplied by Haas, was chosen for the extended work area that is a feature of the VM range of machines. Measuring 1016mm x 660mm x 635mm, this allows us the room to fit a TRT 160 5th axis rotary table whilst leaving plenty of room for other work.

15,000 rpm spindle and a 24 + 1 tool changer allows for high speed machining and good flexibility. The VM3 with the TRT160 has given us increased 5 axis capacity for lower volume quantities and reduces lead times by reducing operations required in more complex parts. It sits along side our Matsuura MX330 with 10 pallet loading system for our high volume 5 axis milling.

Latest international parts from Ultra
The part was made from stainless steel 316, with 3 hours cutting time, complete on the machine. Due to the length of time the milling cutters are in use, the part requires 3 tip changes mid cycle and is tied up in places to 0.1mm. The inside surface finish is to 0.8um in order to maintain and easy to clean surface to which powder particles cannot stick to. Inside the top of rectangle bore are a series of 1mm wide retaining grooves and under cuts and at the bottom of the bore are two 10mm slots at a depth of 70mm with a 0.1mm tolerance The first 40 are already on their way to the United States of America.
