The Vantage 33 CNC Routers incorporate a vibration and impulse damping technology that combines welded steel I-beam construction with a cast composite core. The basic shape and strength of the machine comes from the steel main structure. The composite core provides vibration damping characteristics greater than those of gray cast iron. The rapid dissipation of induced and resonant vibrations assures high quality machining of parts, improved tool life and extended machine life.
High Acceleration with S/C Tech®
The most important aspect of S/C Tech® is the high performance that may be achieved with the Vantage 33. The Vantage 33 acceleration rates are up to 7 times faster than those of other machines. High speeds and high acceleration rates induce large stresses on a machine. S/C Tech® permits the Vantage 33 to operate more quickly, efficiently and reliably than others in its class.
High Performance with S/C Tech®
High acceleration rates are very important in extending tool life and achieving consistent cut quality at high machining speeds. The faster a machine accelerates, the sooner the tool is operating at its rated feedrate and RPM. Long acceleration times translate into more friction between the tool and the machined material. This friction quickly wears out tooling.
Features molded into the S/C Tech® composite core enhance air flow and efficiency of the vacuum hold-down system. Solid vacuum holding power is important for accurate machining of parts and minimization of scrap.
S/C Tech® Means “State-of-the-art” Machine Design
The Vantage 33 combines state-of-the-art machine design, construction and control technologies to take Nested Based Manufacturing to a new level of productivity for the small shop.
