Production Holemaking And Workholding Excellence

Machining Large scale components

If your machining application involves a component or assembly that is either permanently installed or too large to move, any needed machining  will have to be done remotely. This includes modifications, retrofitting or for final assembly. These are common with numerous industries that have essentially immoveable components such as ship building, bridge construction, railroad and several more. Cases like this require you to bring the ‘machine shop to the application’ rather than the other way around.

Very large-scale industries place demand for unique machining solutions

Portable CNC Machine

One solution to this challenge is Zagar’s Z-Mag DTM(TM) magnetic base drill and tap CNC machine. To serve customers with these permanently affixed requirements, Zagar engineered a unique solution using an electromagnetic base. With 5,000 lbs. of hold-down force user can bring the power of precision machining to the job site. Z-Mag DTM can be used on any type of ferrous steel for drilling, tapping, reaming and even combination tooling with programmable feeds, speeds, dwells, and peck cycles. Once in position, the operator can safely and ergonomically operate the unit without the need to manually feed by hand.

Machining Capability and Ease of Use

The Z-MAG DTM brings flexibility to the table for different height applications with an available 13 inches of stroke, 1,300 lbf. of thrust and spindle speeds of up to 3,000. Using an HSK style spindle adapter, the operator can use a variety of HSK tool holders. The sturdy cast iron frame, linear rail system, and precision ball-screw feed system provide a solid foundation for any application, from light roughing to finishing. With the use of the handheld HMI (Human Machine Interface), the operator can control the unit with touch screen controls and has the capability to program and run all operations. The unit has a servo feed motor for consistent feed rates and precise hole depths. The hold-in-place solution is well suited for carbide cutting tools.
