Available from Absolute Machine Tools, the Tongtai TMT-2000 is an eight-axis, two-turret, two-spindle turn-mill cast from Meehanite iron. The machine is designed with a 75-degree, mono-block slant bed for rigidity, chip flow and operator ergonomics. The perpendicular Y axis is said to simplify programming, while high-power, synchronized spindles provide fast acceleration and deceleration times. Rapid traverse rates are 1,181 × 590 × 1,417 ipm on the X, Y and Z axes, respectively.
