Meet the Future of Nano Machining: Shibaura Machine's UVM-450D(H) High Precision Machining Center at IMTS 2024

  • Machine Tools

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, July 16, 2024 - 

As industries evolve, the demand for precision at the nano level has become increasingly vital. Micro machining, characterized by its ability to deliver exceptional accuracy and intricate detailing, is revolutionizing fields from medical devices to aerospace engineering. 

Recognizing this critical shift, Shibaura Machine is proud to show the UVM-450D(H) High Precision Machining Center at the upcoming International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2024. This state-of-the-art machine embodies the future of manufacturing, designed to meet the exacting standards of modern industry with unmatched precision and efficiency. Discover how the UVM-450D(H) can elevate your manufacturing capabilities and keep you at the cutting edge of technology.

Key Features and Applications

1. Advanced Spindle Technology

At the heart of the UVM-450D(H) is its high-speed aerostatic bearing spindle, capable of rotating at an impressive 60,000 RPM. This high rotational speed not only ensures reduced machining time but also provides exceptional accuracy and surface finish. The virtually unlimited lifespan of the aerostatic bearing spindle translates to lower maintenance costs and increased machine uptime.

For example, the UVM-450D(H) excels in producing intricate and accurate components to meet stringent standards in various industries. Its ability to maintain tight profile tolerances and achieve superior surface finishes is critical for applications such as surgical instruments and implantable devices, ensuring each part is manufactured to the highest quality.

2. Thermal Stability

The UVM-450D(H) is equipped with a sophisticated thermal stabilizing system that circulates temperature-controlled liquid through the machine's structure. This feature ensures consistent thermal stability, minimizing distortion and maintaining high precision throughout extended operations.

For instance, in the auto industry components must withstand extreme conditions and meet rigorous safety standards. The UVM-450D(H) advanced thermal stability system ensures that even during long production runs, high-precision molds for refractive lenses remain consistent and precise. This system offers superior accuracy and reliability essential for producing these high-quality molds that enhance vehicle safety and driver visibility.

3. Linear Motor Axes 

The UVM-450D(H) utilizes linear motor axes instead of traditional mechanical axes. This results in faster acceleration, greater accuracy, and higher throughput, making it ideal for high-speed, high-precision machining tasks.

4. Automation and Precision Support

The UVM-450D(H) is equipped with automation features that enhance precision and efficiency. The UVM-TSA software facilitates high-precision machining and automation, while the FormEye® tool contour measuring system ensures accurate cutter shapes during high-speed rotation. Additionally, the ShapeEye imaging-type workpiece measuring system allows for precise tailoring of fine shapes, reducing the need for re-modeling and re-generation of tool paths.

For instance, producing optical lens molds requires careful attention to detail and surface quality. The UVM-450D(H)’s advanced automation and precision support systems ensure that each lens mold is produced to exact specifications, significantly reducing errors and improving production efficiency.
