Here is a big lathe. MAG says the first of its vertical turning centers in 5- to 8-meter table sizes recently completed its runoff in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, for shipment to a U.S. manufacturer of power generation equipment. The 5-meter machine seen here has a hydrostatic table able to support loads up to 330,000 pounds, while turning parts at up to 75 rpm. Seven- and 8-meter-table machines in the same series support loads up to 550,000 pounds. “North American manufacturers in nuclear and wind energy, mining and construction are all scaling up their equipment. We are taking our product development in that same direction,” said Helene Nimmer, director of proposals and product management for MAG.
