SHARP 12" x 58" Heavy Duty Vertical Knee Mill V-1

  • This model is built for heavy cutting. The boxways on the vertical column and top of base allow extra support to the table under hard machining. The size of the saddle is extra wide to support the table to avoid over hang. The top of the saddle is coated with TURCITE-B for better retention of oil and wear resistant.
  • 12 x 58 ins table, 16 x 40 ins travel
  • Hardened and ground box ways
  • #40 taper, 5 hp spindle motor
  • Digital Variable Speed spindle
  • Power feed table and saddle
  • Motorized rapid knee for easy positioning

Digital Variable Speed Head:

  • Easy speed change. Just turn the knob
  • Machine works on Single Phase or 3 phase motor
  • Low voltage control
  • Safety feature includes preventing self-start after power failure of E stop

TURCITE-B coating Auto lubrication:

  • The top of the saddle is coated with TURCITE-B for better retention of lubricating oil and protects wearing of the slideways after long term usages.
  • The auto lubrication system delivers oil to all the sliding ways through well placed lubricating channels. The system is designed with back flow valves to prevent oil from flowing back towards the reservoir.

Boxways on column and knee:

  • Hardened and ground boxways are designed for the vertical column and the top of the base to offer resistance to the table under heavy machining conditions.

Patented Knuckle Head design:

  • The New Patented Knuckled-Head Design prevents the head from slipping. The Sharp mills have a knuckle which uses 6 bolts, 3 each side, fitted into circular T-slots with matching nuts securing them from the outside. It locks the head in place for better accuracy and performance than the old design using only 3 bolts to squeeze the casting to hold the head without the T-slots. (Patent No. 5044054)

Better motor shaft support:

  • Roller Bearing Support at the bottom of the motor shaft ensures proper loading, support and alignment of the spindle. It also prevents the distortion of the belts due to tension from long years of milling operation.

This allows taller work piece to be placed on the table for machining instead of getting a larger machine.
