In engineering the FORM 2000 VHP and FORM 3000 VHP, GF AgieCharmilles Research and Development took into account the affects of temperature fluctuation on precision and mastered those variations, which can be related to the machining environment or the machine itself. The new machines’ thermo control system guarantees unmatched precision under even less-than-ideal workshop conditions.
The sophisticated and unique thermo control system compensates for temperature variations by using temperature-stable dielectric to cool the X, Y and Z glass scales, as well as the Z axis ball screw. In assembly, the machine body is thermally isolated from the high-speed Z axis, which is cooled with dielectric fluid.
Whether you’re machining a single cavity or a multi-cavity mold for serial production of small parts, like lens holding pieces for electronic components, the FORM 2000 VHP and FORM 3000 VHP represent maximum positioning accuracy. In addition to offering optimal global thermostabilization, the machines themselves are assembled with highest accuracy and under strict manufacturing conditions and tested with a laser interferometer during the final steps of production to ensure perfect 3D positioning.
