When you need a vertical mill to hold a large job, a small wimpy mill won’t do. You need to step up to the VM-1258 from Baileigh Industrial. The VM-1258 vertical mill features a whopping 12” x 58” table, one of the largest you will find on a manual mill. This large oversized table isn’t just mounted on a wimpy machine to make it look larger. The whole machine has been built to reflect the size and weight that its table brings.
In order to build a machine this big, rigidity has to come into the equation. Baileigh industrial uses only best castings as the starting point for their mills. The stronger you make he platform the better the cutting is. From there we selected one of the best spindle packages available, with an NST 40 spindle. A larger spindle is stronger and has tighter tolerances over a longer period of time. In order to spin a heavy duty spindle like that we decide to go with a Yaskawa® inverter powered by a 5hp 220 volt three phase motor. The inverter lets the operator chose his RPM from 0 to 3800 rpm. Being able to choose the correct rpm will make for longer lasting tooling and better cuts.
Movement on the three axis are powered to make it easier on the operator. The X and Y axis also has a Mitutoyo® digital read out as a standard feature. No need to install it yourself, it is already done at the factory. The X and Y axis also have square slide ways with covers and ball screws for the best movement available. A flood coolant system, air draw bar, and central lubrication system are all factory installed on the VM-1258.
