5 Axis Gantry Type Machining Center
A Gantry Type Machining Center (GTC) is a rotating machine that cuts parts from a variety of materials at a fast rate. This is considered as a “fast” production because the machining center moves from one section to another, cutting parts out at a rapid pace. The machine is operated by simple push button controls. GTC cuts only by movement of a drill bit.
One of the greatest advantages of this type of operation is the speed and accuracy. The GTC machines are also known as CNC Machining Centers (CNC) because they have all the machinery and computer control system in the same machine. Since the GTC machines are stationary, the GTC operation can be automated using the programmable computer. These centers are often used in areas where space is limited.
Another great advantage of Gantry Type Machining Centers is the fact that these units cost much less than other production operations. They are also considered as less expensive than the Robotic Production Machines. The Robotic production units need a huge space to operate and because of this they cannot produce as much material as the GTC. The GTCs are able to perform more number of operations per minute than Robotic Units and therefore they save a lot of money. As the name suggests, the machines are normally kept in a fixed position, which is very convenient for the worker.
The Gantry Type Machining Center is designed in such a way that it can be moved from one place to another. It is even more advanced when compared to the Robotic Production Machines. The GTC has the ability to rotate 360 degrees and hence, can cut parts of different sizes. A GTC, since it is stationary, does not require a great amount of space and is cost effective.
Since the GTCs are capable of performing multiple functions simultaneously, they are better than Robotic Units and the CNC. The Robotic Units do not have the capability of performing multi tasking and the CNC units do not have the capability of manufacturing large volumes of items. Since the GTCs perform multiple tasks at the same time, they have been used extensively in both the industries.
In some cases, the GTC has the ability to angle the angular movement, which makes it easier to perform a variety of tasks. It can also have the ability to drill parts from the outside of the material without damage to the inside part. As the machine is stationary, there is no need for additional storage area. Therefore, GTC is cost effective and requires little space.
If you are looking for a cost effective GTC that can perform your repetitive cutting task, then the 5 Axis Gantry Type Machining Center is the perfect choice for you. It is easy to handle and operate. It is also equipped with all the components required for a wide range of production tasks.
It is a cheaper and faster alternative to the Robotic CNC Units and also produces accurate results. It is equipped with automatic hydraulic drive to move at a very fast speed. It is powered by a motor that is so powerful that it is able to move a drill with ease.
