March issue’s Modern Equipment Review Spotlight highlights horizontal, vertical, five-axis and multitasking machining centers. One standout attribute among the machines in this curation is stability. From the Tongtai CT-350’s wide, torsion-resistant column to the Super 1320’s pre-loaded C3 ballscrews on all three axes, a number of features on these machining centers serve to maintain rigidity and stability for precise operation, even with some large and unwieldy workpieces.
