WFL Millturn Technology’s M120 MillTurn machining center accommodates machining lengths ranging from 78" to 315" and offers a swing ranging to 48". Along with up to 168 hp and 8,680 foot-pounds of torque in the main spindle, high feed rates on all axes are said to enhance dynamics and productivity. The 74-hp, direct-drive milling spindle maximizes power even at low speeds, suiting it to large drills and milling cutters. The clamping forces of the B axis enable the use of damped boring bars with a diameter-to-length ratio of up to 1-to-14. A separate pickup magazine is available for heavy ID tools ranging to 5 ft. in length and weighing 320 lb; another is available for tools ranging to 8 ft. 

The company is also featuring its WFL Data Analyzer, which calculates figures such as machine and productivity data, as well as its upgraded CrashGuard Studio simulation and programming software.

    The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.
