Work hardening makes machining titanium incredibly difficult and in some extreme cases, causes surface or internal damage to the metal – rendering it scrap. To setup customers with the most optimal machining environment, the engineering team at JTEKT Machinery Americas Corporation works to provide cutting-edge solutions offsetting the challenges of machining heat resistant super alloys.

The UA2090 Ti 5-axis vertical machining center is designed for large part machining of titanium and hard alloy components with a tilting head supporting 5-axis machining. The spindle head is adapted with an 8,000 RPM, 35 HP spindle that has a maximum torque of 811 ft-lb (1,100 Nm). The rugged 5-axis, A and B head design allows for simple 5-axis programming. The machine also features oil-recirculating heat exchange to keep the spindle temperature constant for minimal thermal spindle expansion and a unique counterbalance system on the headstock promoting smoother operation and long-term accuracy.

In the UA2090 Ti series, box way construction is paired with linear roller guideways, adding fast rapids and maximum vibration-dampening for heavy cutting. High rigidity is maintained with cylindrical roller bearings, offering more surface-to-surface contact than ball bearing packs. This hybrid construction is well suited for aerospace-grade titanium cutting, where a combination of roughing and fine precision finishing is required. 

The UA2090Ti 5-axis machine made its first US premiere at IMTS 2018.
