Toyoda Machinery’s BM-1200 VMC is designed for applications in ferrous materials such as cast iron and steel. The rigid iron base is paired with four Y-axis box guideways to eliminate saddle overhang while the extra-wide column expands machining capability. Many high-torque and direct-drive spindle configurations are available in CAT 40 or CAT 50 tapers.
