Precision can’t just be an idea. It has to be a fact. A fact that is so accurate they’ll have to find new ways to measure it. Balance has to be so dynamic that imbalance is impossible. Auto-lubrication so consistent that maintenance is something to marvel at. These mills have safety features their predecessors could only imagine and CSA/CUS electrics keep the workplace safer than ever before.
The next generation takes the best of the old, and adapts to move forward. JET Elite represents the most precise, most durable, and safest metalworking machinery. Each of these machines puts a stake in the ground, signaling a new standard of excellence.
Spindle utilizes class 7210 (P4, ABEL-7) precision angular bearings for the guaranteed industry leading spindle taper runout of 0.00012".
Chrome Molybdenum spindle is fully hardened through a carbonizing treatment and is precisely ground to maintain strict tolerances.
Seamless, one-piece, steel quill is induction hardened and chromed for increased strength, and precision ground for greater accuracy.
To improve reliability we went back and did it the old fashioned way. X and Y-axis ways are precisely hand scraped to minimum of 16 points per square inch and are inspected for a precise fit ensuring greater oil retention and smooth movement.
Heat treated and polished lead screws are supported by thrust bearings ensuring smooth, incremental movements of the table under load.
Table and saddle backlash is controlled by an advanced double nut design that eliminates endplay for precisely controlled lateral movements.
Patented Vari-disc key provides up to ten times the wear resistance than aluminum or brass keys.
Variable speed pulleys are ground and dynamically balanced, reducing vibration and ensuring smooth speed transitions.
Ball bearings support of the motor shaft ensures proper loading, support and alignment for quiet, accurate operation at any speed.
Hardened and ground table provides a stable and accurate platform for milling a diverse variety of materials.
Every 30 minutes with a flow of 3-6 cc/cy your Elite mill is automatically lubricated.
Extra years of protection over the standard sheet metal cover and prevents chips and debris from scraping, scratching, contaminating, or damaging the ways.
Certified Meehanite castings provide the ultimate reassurance that your ELITE mill will retain its tolerances and the column will remain rigid through many years of machining.
The electronic spindle brake, when activated, interrupts power to the spindle to prevent accidental start ups.
The spindle safety guard is easily adjustable and can be repositioned for tool and work piece change-over providing protection between the cutting tool and operator(s).
The mounted control box houses major mill functions as well as an emergency stop button.
For added safety, the motor and electrics of ELITE mills follow strict guidelines and electrical requirements to be certified by CSA Group.
