All production work comes in different sizes and in most cases a pallet shuttle system is often required to reduce load and unload times. The Chester FTV 4000 series traveling column contains all axis motion allowing pendulum loading in cycle to reduce load /unload times and maximising spindle utilisation.
The high rigidity dynamic structure can have components up to 9 Ton on the machine table, this configuration also results in high Y Axis range up to 1200mm.
Optimised axis drives and large diameter ball screws combined delivers fast rapid traverse on X,Y and Z movements.
The options of BT40/50 spindle tapers and various spindle speeds to choose from makes the FTV range a fantastic choice.
