The Speedio M140X2 compact multitasking machine, from Yamazen Inc., integrates turning and milling processes, contributing to high efficiency machining to save both time and money. The machine has recently been enhanced to allow more flexibility for jig design and improved machining capabilities, including more advanced complex machining work.

According to the company, the machine brings a reduction of handling time by performing both turning and milling, therefore eliminating the additional setup. Also, because multiple processes can be performed through a single chucking, workpiece attachment errors are eliminated and machine accuracy is improved.
