Modern Machine Shop
The M120 mill-turn/6,500-mm machine is equipped with machining lengths ranging from 78" to 315" and a swing ranging to 48". Along with power ranges (ranging to 168 hp) and torque values (ranging to 8,680 foot-pounds) of the main spindle, feed rates on all axes make for dynamics and productivity. According to the company, the 74-hp direct-driven milling spindle guarantees maximum power even at low speed. The clamping forces of the B axis enable the use of damped boring bars with a diameter-length ratio ranging from 1 to 14. A separate pick-up magazine is available optionally for heavy ID machining tools ranging to 5 ft. in length and 320 lbs.
The company offers another fully automated machine for the use of tools ranging to 8 ft. Turning, boring, milling, gear cutting, deep hole boring as well as ID machining is possible in any angle, the company says, and by interpolating as many as five axes, virtually any geometrical contour can be machined.
