The company offers a five-axis version of its V33i hard milling VMC, the V33i-5XB. The VMC will be integrated with an Erowa robot at the show to demonstrate how shops can utilize automation in high-accuracy hard milling applications. The machine platform provides extreme dynamic accuracy for long hours of continuous hard milling, and the five-axis capability reduces part setups for accurate, complex shapes, the company says.
