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.
