The Kugler Flycutter F1000-4X is an ultraprecise, CNC controlled 4-axis milling machine with aerostatic bearings, which is specially designed and optimized for the demands of ultraprecision machining according to the flycutting method.
The machine is characterized by thermally stable assembly sections made from natural granite (machine base, Z column, X rail), carriage assemblies with aerostatic bearings, high stiffness, machine tool spindles with aerostatic bearings and machine integrated measurement technology.
The primary scope of application is the 2D ultraprecision machining of even geometries on non-ferrous metals with monocrystalline single point diamond tools for the production of surfaces with optical quality (evenness tolerance < 0.5µm / Ø100mm; roughness Ra < 5nm).
In addition, the machine is outfitted with a Y and C axis for the manufacturing of optical lattices, spheres and toroids.
