Developed for the aerospace industry, the Pro-4210TS is a bridge-type VMC with a full cutting range. The machine features three spindles capable of cutting three identical aerospace structural parts simultaneously to save cycle time, operation overhead and increase productivity at the same time. The machine is said to easily cut materials such as aluminum, tool steel, titanium and Inconel. Tripling production in each operation saves floor space with only one machine needed instead of three.
