H12 CNC Double-Column Machining Center

The Takumi H12 CNC double-column machining center, designed for parts that require outstanding speed and accuracy, and unparalleled surface finish, delivers world-class performance for die/mold, aerospace and other high speed applications. The ladder structure and double-column design provide extreme rigidity and outstanding support to the head casting.

The Takumi H12 features a 15,000 rpm BIG PLUS CAT 40 inline direct-drive spindle. The one-piece base absorbs the inertia of high cutting feeds and 30 components on the machine are hand scraped for alignment during assembly.

The Takumi H12 is equipped by the FANUC 31-i-MB series control that features AICC 2 with high-speed processing, machine condition selection and Nano smoothing. The control includes 600 block look-ahead and a 1GB data server with editing capabilities.

Related Glossary Terms

  • computer numerical control ( CNC)

    computer numerical control ( CNC)

    Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • inches per minute ( ipm)

    inches per minute ( ipm)

    Value that refers to how far the workpiece or cutter advances linearly in 1 minute, defined as: ipm = ipt 5 number of effective teeth 5 rpm. Also known as the table feed or machine feed.

  • look-ahead


    CNC feature that evaluates many data blocks ahead of the cutting tool’s location to adjust the machining parameters to prevent gouges. This occurs when the feed rate is too high to stop the cutting tool within the required distance, resulting in an overshoot of the tool’s projected path. Ideally, look-ahead should be dynamic, varying the distance and number of program blocks based on the part profile and the desired feed rate.

  • machining center

    machining center

    CNC machine tool capable of drilling, reaming, tapping, milling and boring. Normally comes with an automatic toolchanger. See automatic toolchanger.
