The Model QL300H/M, a CNC turning center, features the company's fully automatic parts handling system, including In-stocker, Turn-over and Out-conveyor, in addition to a three-servo (two-servo standard) gantry loader.

A left/right separated bed configuration is said to minimize vibration interaction, fast rapid traverse and index time.

Specifications include a maximum turning diameter of 12.2" by 9.05"; a bar capacity of 2.52"; and a cutting feed rate as high as 19.69 ipr. The machine also features driven tools for milling, drilling and tapping operations as well as a Fanuc 18iTB CNC control system.

The gantry loader handles parts up to 22 lbs in weight, up to 8.66" in diameter, and 5.9" in length, with repeatable positioning accuracy of ± 0.0039".
