To support the high speed performance of the TBM7T, scissors-type pallet forks that quickly rotate on a direct-turn system have been incorporated. This design also reduces the machine’s floorspace requirements.
To minimize thermal effect and energy consumption, the machine uses an inverter control system for the heat exchanger and hydraulic unit. The company’s thermal distortion stabilizing system and coolant temperature control system are available as options to further minimize internal and external thermal distortion of machine structure and maximize precision.
