FFG MAG is debuting its MMH 500 horizontal machining center for the general market, designed with precision, power, performance and productivity in mind. All MMH machines come with linear axis speeds of 60 m/min. and a 12,000-rpm direct-drive spindle (optional 15,000 rpm) which results in more machine throughput per spindle and high-speed cutting capabilities. The high-pressure coolant-through tool/spindle-ready feature provides flexibility to application changes with the ability to apply 1,000 psi at a small upgrade cost. The large tool capacity enables more application possibilities on one machine.

The MAG MMH 500’s standard infinite contouring B-axis table delivers higher precision part cutting without having to add this typically-expensive option. The machine is prepared for 480-V connection, requiring no isolation transformers, saving users valuable floor space and investment cost, according to the company. Unlike many other horizontal machining centers in the market, MAG’s MMH 500 is designed and built with North American Controls Design and Safety Standards, which fully conforms to the latest U.S., Canadian and Mexican safety standards.
