Application of the machine tool
The TBI VC 1270 Smart Mill Vertical Machining Center is a general-purpose machine tool. The design and standard of configuration enable roughing and finishing machining in small batch and repetitive production. The machines are used by our customers m. in. for machining parts used in the automotive industry and parts for machine manufacturers. The advantage of this model is the ability to machine tall parts – the Z-axis travel is 700 mm, and the Siemens 828D control used is very intuitive to use. The ShopMill graphical interface facilitates quick programming of single models and small batch production without the need for CAM software. The standard block processing time is 4.5 ms. The economy of the solution was achieved through a closed equipment configuration that allows full functionality.

Note the increased payload capacity of the table, which is 1500 kg. The design is based on a cross table, and the ball screws have the largest diameter (in the comparable machine segment) – this allows more weight to be placed on the table. On the other hand, the rolling guides used in the Y-axis allow uneven loading of the table while maintaining full machining parameters. The cart system used, with scrapers and automatic internal lubrication, is selected for harsh industrial conditions and high dustiness. Ergonomics and operator comfort are enhanced by the ability to drive the table up to the machine guard and load it. The TBI VC Smart Mill Machining Center features high structural rigidity and high repeatability of machining. Machining time is maximized by using a two-arm tool changer and a drum tool magazine that rotates by the shortest path. The important thing is that the tool is assigned in the control, not in the stock. By using Z-axis strain relief, the load on the motor is reduced by about 60%, which increases its life and reduces energy consumption.



TBI VC 1270 Smart mill vertical machining centers are produced in a continuous cycle and we maintain a minimum stock for them in Poland. The standard waiting time for a machine from the warehouse is a maximum of 4 weeks. On the other hand, if the CNC machine tool is manufactured from scratch – the waiting time is 4 to 6 months. More about what the delivery date of a CNC machine tool depends on in the content of our

For the new TBI VC 1270 machine, our guaranteed positioning accuracy is ?0.003, and positioning repeatability is ? 0.002. This parameter is measured with a two-way passage over the entire length of the axle passage, i.e. 1200 mm. About the positioning of the machine, about the standards used in this area we write in the

As part of the TBI brand , we have a separate tool brand, TBI Tools. Its offer is designedto make the process of CNC implementation easier for the customer at the stage of machine purchase. When purchasing a TBI Technology machine, we offer tool starter packages that guarantee a quick start of production and selection of the optimal metalworking technology.

In order to speed up delivery, it’s a good idea to prepare for it properly beforehand. What does it mean? The customer always receives a machine size guide so that he can arrange his hall space for a new CNC machine tool. There are all the necessary transportation and installation data for a specific machine model.

In order to remain competitive in the market and increase the quality of their services, more and more companies are choosing to purchase a new CNC machine tool. However, it is often the case that not all customers want to commit a larger sum of money. In this case, they choose to take advantage of available forms of financing, particularly leasing. In that case, they commit funds only for their own contribution; the leasing company finances the rest.

More favorable for tax purposes is the operating lease, the initial payment, the full lease payment and the expenses incurred on the leased object are included in the tax deductible expenses. The condition is that the contract is concluded for at least 40% of the depreciation period for the asset and that there is a limitation in the determination of the final redemption value. VAT is added to each lease installment.

In the case of a finance lease, the entrepreneur becomes the owner of the CNC machine and makes monthly depreciation deductions, only the interest and all expenses incurred are charged to expenses. There are no restrictions on the contract term or residual value, while VAT is paid on the full value of the machine along with the first installment.

The standard financing period for the purchase of a CNC machine is 3 to 5 years, but it is possible to extend financing up to 7 years.

Shortening an operating lease is more complicated. If it occurs before 40% of the normative depreciation period has elapsed, the regulations oblige the leasing company to sell the leased asset, at the market value confirmed by an appraiser’s valuation or at the outstanding value, whichever is higher.

There is no clear answer. Certainly obtaining financing through a CNC machine supplier can make the process easier. Significance will be given to the amount of the declared initial fee (minimum 20%), the assets of the company and the owner, the possibility of guaranteeing with private assets by the lessee or representative, the prospects of the company (experience of managers, contracts concluded, the amount of turnover.
