With a counterspindle permitting four‑axis machining, a B axis with a direct drive for complex five-axis simultaneous milling operations, an additional Y axis for the lower turret, the Hyperturn 65 Powermill from EMCO Maier especially useful for the serial production of workpieces, for example, in the automotive, mechanical engineering and materials handling, and aerospace industries.

Complex as well as costly turning, drilling, milling and gear cutting operations can be carried out in one setup on this machine. Additional clampings and the temporary storage of parts are no longer necessary and workpiece precision is greatly improved, according to the company. Total production time, fixture and personnel costs, as well as floor space requirements, can be reduced with this machine.

With a spindle distance of 1,300 mm, the machine has a large clearance for simultaneous machining on the main and counterspindles. With 29 kW and 250 Nm of torque, the counterspindle has enough power to machine the workpiece simultaneously with two tools for high productivity.
