Burkhardt+Weber’s MCX 900 horizontal machining center is designed for accuracy, accommodating part sizes fitting within a 1,500 mm (59") swing and as tall as 1,750 mm (69"). This machine is equipped with the latest features and options available for large BW machining centers in four- or five-axis configurations, the company says.

The machine’s tool magazine exceeds the company’s standard tool weight limit of 75 kg (165 lb) and length limit of 1,200 mm (47"), enabling it to apply tools for applications that would otherwise require a boring mill.
