The VMC 4020 FX combines a 1219 x 508 mm table with a maximum table load of 1,651 kg, 15,000 RPM air/oil spindle, and the Infimatic Freedom NC200 control featuring a special performance package. The high-speed spindle enables faster axis feeds and finer finishes, while air/oil injection yields the extended duty cycles needed for continuous production run. Designed specifically for metal-cutting machine tool applications, the digital Infimatic Freedom NC200 control extends the VMC's capabilities for performance and precision. The control operates with the full line of the company's vertical machining centers, including the VMC 3016 FX and the VMC 4525, allowing up to 5-axis machining. The NC200 control is compatible with standard G Codes, as well as part programs that have been created for the company's CNC controls, allowing easy transfer of work to the VMC 4020 FX. Engineered for maximum reliability, the Freedom NC200 features fanless cooling, flash memory storage, all surface-mount circuit board construction, and water-resistant panel. A distributed architecture enables electrical cabinet optimization.
