June 26, 2019 – Methods Machine Tools is now carrying the new FANUC RoboDrill ecoPLUS, which boasts a larger 21-tool capacity and increased speed via an optional 24,000 rpm spindle.

Two ecoPLUS models are available, including one with a larger X-axis travel and table size.

FANUC RoboDrill eco/ecoPLUS high-speed machining centres offer milling, drilling, tapping, deburring and chamfering.

The ecoPLUS D21MiB has a working cube of 19.7″ x 15.7″ x 13″ (500 mm x 400 mm x 330 mm).

The ecoPLUS D21LiB offers travels of 27.6″ x 15.7″ x 13″ (700 mm x 400 mm x 330 mm).

Standard features on both systems include a 14.75 HP (peak) 10,000 rpm or 24,000 rpm direct drive spindle with precision-enhancing thermal compensation, HRV control and a 21-station tool changer.

The ecoPLUS D21MiB has a table size of 25.6 ″ x 15.7″ (650 mm x 399 mm) and the ecoPLUS D21LiB offers a table size of 33.5″ x 16.1″ (951 mm x 409 mm).

Both machining centres have rapid traverses to 1890 ipm (41 m/min), accelerations/decelerations to 1.5 G, 0.9-second tool changes (tool-to-tool), rigid tapping to 5,000 rpm; and high-speed reverse tapping (up to 20 times faster than infeed). Each are equipped with a FANUC 31i-B Nano CNC with simultaneous three-axis control.

Options include high-speed indexers, a fourth axis, a signal lamp, and robotic automation packages from Methods.
