Milling machine with linear motors
Development of a high-speed milling machine with a linear motors.
Development of the first national prototype for a high-speed milling machine with a linear motors for the machining of magnesium.
Machine tools are traditionally driven by a rotatory motors and ball screws drives.
This type of configuration is limited by the speed of maximum acceleration that it can provide.
An alternative to this is to use a direct drive linear motors, thus providing movement directly in the direction of the machine slide.
This project was the first prototype for a high-speed milling machine with a linear motors in the country and it obtained the design Prize at the BIEMH (Spanish Biennial Machine Tool Trade Fair).
