The first national milling machine equipped with linear motors

Milling machine equipped with linear motors

Did you know that IK4-TEKNIKER received an award at the Machine Tool Biennial for developing a high-speed milling machine?

IK4-TEKNIKER received the design award at the 1998 Machine Tool Biennial after developing Spain’s first prototype of a high-speed milling machine equipped with linear motors.

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.

IK4-TEKNIKER developed a milling machine prototype that met the above mentioned requirements and received the Design Award at the Spanish Machine Tool Biennial.
