Enhanced European-made CNC milling machine with variable speed pre-selection from 200 thru 4000rpm, digital speed indicator and high precision results. Double roller bearings mount each of the recirculating ball screws on all three axes, driven by powerful stepper motors. Approximate machine travels are X 290mm, Y 100mm, Z 200mm.

The mechanical design is almost identical to our model 24350 FF 500/BL, carrying the same brushless DC spindle motor fitted with rotor position sensor and speed sensor, with electronics isolated from vibration and heat in a backpack to the vertical dovetail column. The sensors provide controller feedback that guarantees high torque in the lower speed range, for use of larger milling cutters. Direct drive without motor brushes, belts or pulleys ensures very quiet operation.

The sturdy vertical column has dovetail ways, 5-screw gib adjustment, sliding calibrated rule and telescopic leadscrew covers. Our new milling head can be rotated left or right up to 90 degrees, to a protractor scale. It includes a drilling quill, usable both vertical and when the head is rotated. An available fine feeder option allows accurate quill motion, beyond those of the hand lever. The quill may be clamped when not manually engaged.

The spindle nose is fitted with an ER 20 collet nut to EIN 6499-B and we include collets 6mm 8mm 10mm 12mm. The vertical motion quill lever has a thimble which may be zeroed at any point.

Our compound XY table of plane-milled steel has 3 full-length tee-slots 12 x 6 x 5mm and there is a second sliding, calibrated rule on the table's long axis. Model 24362 includes high-reliability AUSTRALIAN SUPPORTED 4-AXIS CONTROLLER.

Optional 4th axis UT 400/CNC is available.

By appointment, you may inspect the FF 500/BL-CNC in our Tuggerah Business Park showroom.
