When looking for a conventional style knee milling machine, Baileigh Industrial leads the pack in both quality and standard features. Baileigh Industrial’s VM-949 milling machine is no exception and is great for any small to medium machine shop or fabrication shop. Like all Baileigh machines, it’s packed with tons of standard features that are options on most other brands.
The VM-949 is fully variable speed through the use of a Yaskawa® inverter drives. Speeds are adjustable from 0 to 4200 rpm. Adjustable spindle speeds help prolong tooling life as well as allows some applications that cannot be done on a standard drill press, such as thermal friction drilling. The VM-949 is available in 400 three phase.
Rigidity is also very important on a mill that is why Baileigh Industrial went with only the best castings to make the base and frame work out of. The stronger you make he platform the better the cutting is. This is not the place to use an inferior process. To make the VM-949 milling machine even stronger, a NST 40 spindle is standard. This type spindle is stronger and give the operator a choice of larger tooling should the need arise.
Operation of the VM-949 could not be easier as this milling machine has powered X, Y and Z axis. The X and Y axis utilizes a Mitutoyo® DRO- digital read out for positioning down to 1/10 of a thousandth of an inch. Other standard features of the VM-949 milling machine include an air draw bar, coolant system with catch tray, square slide ways and X and Y axis lead screws.
