The University of Auckland requires a CNC Lathe and CNC Milling Machine for the Auckland Bioengineering Institute to assist with research activities and rapid prototype testing.
The procured CNC Milling Machine must be a 5 axis simultaneous mill with a swivel rotary table. The machine must have a minimum 16 tool turret/station SK/BT 40 and minimum 10,000 RPM. Minimum X travel 500mm, minimum Z travel 400mm and minimum Y travel 450mm is required; as well as a manual control.
The procured CNC Lathe must have a minimum 6 inch chuck and controlled electronically using a Fanuc controller, and have a minimum of 12 live tool stations. X,Y,Z and C axis must be controllable. It must also provide the option of sub spindle.
Both machines must:
• have standard CNC accuracy and repeatability
• be able to manufacture small parts, mostly made from aluminium with some parts made from stainless steel and steel
• usage typical for engineered parts manufactured in a research and development facility
• must comply with Australian / New Zealand safety standards
Students and researchers successfully using the CNC Lathe and CNC Mill will become expert users who may develop a preference for using the selected brand / model and it may be an important career factor should they leave the University.
