CNC Machines Designed for Temperature Balance
The way the CNC machine is designed sets the stage for temperature balance and manageable deformation. Okuma’s machine construction is simplified – built with symmetry and with alignment of spindle and axis planes to ensure predictable and parallel direction of growth. CNC Machine designs also isolate peripheral heat sources such as electrical cabinets and hydraulic and coolant systems from the machine casting. And special thermal machine covers are employed to keep hot chips off of the casting, eliminating unpredictable and uncontrollable “hot spots”.
