Vertical Machining Centers

3-4-5 axis. Single spindle. Turnkey solutions for vertical machining. Full automation options available. High chip removal rates.

MODIG is recognized worldwide for our innovative adaptations to meet challenging machining requirements while providing unparalleled machining accuracy. This enables our customers to achieve world-class quality – with shortened production times, leading to decreased, overall manufacturing costs. The Vertical Machining Centers, characterized by a spindle being vertically oriented, includes solutions of MODIG’s extensive tradition of innovative machines that continuously enhance the world’s machining standards. MODIG is proud to display the vertical machining center with the world record in highest measured material removal rates (1,200 cubic inches/minute: 19,7 liters/minute) without losing quality or precision. MODIG’s vertical machining centers have several advantages optimized for increased productivity and enhanced machine availability.


What type of industries use MODIG’s Vertical Machining Centers?

MODIG’s vertical machining centers are frequently used in industries such as aerospace and space, for machining of parts in both soft and hard metals with unlimited length.

What benefits have MODIG’s Vertical Machining Centers?

Technology MODIG’S vertical machining centers are at the cutting edge of technology. Tailored for each customer’s need for high productivity and designed to reduce the cost per part without compromising the quality.

Verticality It is often forgotten that the benefit of better chip evacuation through horizontal spindle solutions comes at the expense of superior mechanical behavior. A mechanical structure will always be more balanced and stable in an axis vertical to the work-piece and parallel to the gravitational force.

Rigidity The RigiMill architecture is the key of its phenomenal rigidity. Indeed, its extremely compact monolithic cast iron bridge equipped with a vertical moving cross-rail running on five guideways offers the highest rigidity at the spindle to deal easily with most challenging cutting forces.

Accuracy As the RigiMill is free from sliding Ram axis, its spindle, being in constant over-hang from the moving cross-rail, benefits of the highest accuracy for the smoothest surface quality even at full machine speed.

More benefits with our Vertical Machining Centers

Speed Chip removal rates up to 55 cubic inches/min (0.9 liter/min) in titanium and 1,200 cubic inches/min (19.7 liters/min) in aluminum. Feed rates up to 2,800”/min (70 m/min) with an acceleration of 26 ft/square second (8 m/square second). Spindle speed up to 30,000 rpm.

Flexible MODIG’s vertical machining centers are well suited for both soft and hard metal machining thanks to the incomparable compactness and remarkable agility. The exceptional features allow high-speed roughing and finishing for the greatest machining flexibility and profitability.

Cost-efficient MODIG’s palletized RigiMill cell, when compared to any palletized horizontal machining center solution, provides a more affordable strategic investment with a faster ROI.

Reduced footprint The compact design of the machines reduces the floor space needed, which is a significant advantage.
