October 2006: The model ZÁ3500 received the Good Design Award for 2006.
The world's first non-metal contact friction-free machining cell, the ZÁ3500 is designed for high-precision dies and molds as well as ultra-fine machining.
Recently, the ZÁ3500 received the Good Design Award for 2006.
Under the motto "Let's make our dream come true" We applied our unique technology of non-metal contact friction-free moving parts, to make the ZÁ3500 the first machining center of this type in the world. The friction-free technology and user-friendly design contribute to making the ZÁ3500 the unrivalled one of a kind machining center on the market today.
- Designed to be pleasing to the eye with the machines rounded form along with consideration for the working environment with technology and components that are environmentally and people friendly
- The front door was designed to open vertically therefore maintaining the narrow footprint without sacrificing access to the work area.
- Blue LEDs, our corporate color were employed in the operator panel, "another industry first". This has given the control the pleasing look of High-end audio equipment also; the nameplate for the ZÁ3500 is coated with stone-surface patterns, thus projecting massive quality.
- The ZÁ3500 is designed to machine parts targeting the micron to nano range by applying ultra-precision and ultra-fine machining capabilities.
- NTC's unique technology has achieved the world's first non-metal contact, friction-free machine structure.
- The ZÁ3500 targeted markets include: aviation, medical, bio, R&D
and other high tolerance applications.
- NTC's ZÁ3500 with its extremely high accuracy virtually eliminates asperity on machined surfaces.
- Thermal displacement stabilization (thermal affection) is accomplished in a matter of seconds.
- The ZÁ3500's ultra-low vibration exponentially increases tool life.
- During operation the machines noise generation is lower then a human's normal speaking level this is an absolute first in machine design.
- The machines service life should be nearly infinite, due to the non-metal contact frictionless design. The only maintenance is a periodic oil and filter change.
As a result of the above features and benefits NTC has won praise from the award examiners. "The product is designed to be very robust and stable. Their (NTC's) unique technology for achieving friction-free non-metal contact should be highly praised. The design offers a precision feel".
Taking the award as a source of encouragement, we at NTC are all determined to deliver products that can contribute to customers now and into the future. We look forward to your continued support.
