MARSHALL, Mo, Sep 12, 2016 – The Eldorado KM75-48 is a 3-axis gundrilling machine used to manufacture products like transmission shafts, manifolds, and mold matrices. The machine includes updated Beckhoff controls with G-Code programming, which provides enhanced flexibility. Complex gundrilling operations can be performed with a single fixturing setup.
The KM75-48 features a “knee” fixture table to provide 3-axis CNC gundrilling capability. Drill capacity is 0.078 to 0.75 inches (1.98 to 19.1 mm). Drill slide travel in the Z-axis is 48 inches (1219 mm), with table travel of 24 inches (610 mm) in the X-axis and 12 inches (305 mm) in the Y-axis.
The machine has a durable design that incorporates hardened and ground box ways and hand-scraped mating components (versus linear guide ways and milled surfaces). This results in superior vibration damping, extended tool life, and improved hole accuracy and surface finish. Standard elements are also included on the KM75-48, such as the F18 high-pressure coolant system and a machine enclosure.
Eldorado gundrilling machines are built-to-order by Kays Engineering in their Marshall, Missouri facility. Eldorado products will be on display at IMTS 2016 in Booth #S-8376.
