SVM-2VMC Workstation – Skyfire CNC Vertical Milling Centre LinuxCNC
SVM-2VMC Workstation is high end Mini Industrial Vertical Milling CNC. Equipped with standard industrial AC SERVO driving BT30 spindle, full linear ways and full AC SERVO 3 axis motion system that normally only be seen on top industrial CNC machines. This machine incorporates a Touch screen PC with LinuxCNC control on a Mesa 7i76E board. All 2018 machines come with Rigid tapping functionality and Automatic Tool Changer as standard!

The SVM-2VMC is a pro level Mini Industrial Vertical Milling CNC. Despite it being compact it is in every way an industrial level Vertical Machining Centre (VMC). Not least because of the high grade actuation system, the BT-30 servo spindle and integral controller. Available in both single and three phase (2p-3P) in both European and American supply voltages, the SVM-2VMC is a very versatile machine that can be used as a primary machine in a small workshop as well as a secondary in a large scale manufacturing shop.
As of January 2018 the SVM-2VMC and Workstation will be shipped with a few of the commonly requested upgrades all pre installed along with some very good improvements:
- ATC and Power Drawbar will come prefitted but can be removed upon request
- The improved quality AC Spindle motor has up to 30% more torque at slow speeds
- Rigid tapping functionality as standard
- Bearings on the ballscrew mounts have been upgraded
- New high output coolant pump integrated
BT30 taper 12 tool Automatic Tool Changer (Standard)
SKYFIRE have developed their own compact ATC system. This reduces weight and runs on full linear ways. Can be sold separately too!
For all other options have a look at the optional accessories tab above.
High rigidity cast iron machine frames
The machine base is made of over 500kg of stress relieved and aged cast iron. This ensure the machine castings do not “move” over time. The design was validated through FEA
Full linear ways and C3 class ground ballscrews for all 3 axis
All axes incorporate HIWIN™ High precision class linear rails and C3 class ground ballscrews. The Z axis however, has even heavier duty roller type rails.
AC SERVO driving BT30 spindle system with Pneumatic Drawbar – PDB
As any proper industrial machine should be, the SVM-2VMC has a BT30 spindle. The spindle is driver by a servo motor to allow alignment of the tools in the ATC and also to enable rigid tapping
AC SERVO 3 axis motors
AC SERVO motors offer much higher rapid speed and accuracy than your average stepper motor system, not to mention smoothness and noise level. Servos are one of those elements taken for granted on higher end machine, so of course the SVM-2VMC has them.
SVM-2VMC Workstation comes with Linuxcnc + MESA 7i76e CNC controller installed on a 14″ touch panel tablet industrial computer. Linuxcnc& the MESA card offers a powerful alternative to the standalone controllers and offers easy integration of Rigid tapping, Servo spindle and 5 axis control.

Thanks for your interest in the Skyfire SVM-2VMC. These machines are made to order and thus will need to be individually price to suit your own specification. The lead time for the machines will vary depending on the size of your order and the time of year. All machines are brought in as sea freight and the prices we quote will include insurance and delivery to your door.
When you are ready to start specifying your machine, use this checklist to help define your needs
You can send us a copy of the printed checklist or a list of your requirements.
We will produce an all inclusive and itemised quotation for you. If this quote is then agreed upon, we will require a deposit to be paid which will cover the build of the machine. This deposit is only partially refundable
When the machine is built, packed and ready to be shipped, a bill of lading will be communicated to us by the factory. At this point the remainder of the cost of the machine will be due. We will of course share the bill of lading with you.
In most cases transit time and customs clearance is 30days. We will need more information regarding your delivery location to ensure we have made adequate provision for the unloading of the machine in the safest possible way.
