Designed to be used by virtually anyone in the shop, regardless of experience or training, Fryer Machine Systems’ updated MB Series toolroom bed mill offers full manual operation. Manual handles feature a digital readout and a manual quill with glass-scale feedback.

The machine also features “Do One” cycles that enable step-by-step automatic milling, pocketing, drilling and tapping. Manual operations and semi-automatic operations can be mixed to speed through one-piece production.

The MB machine also features Shop Mill, a conversational programming system. Developed by Siemens, this software facilitates automatic programming and features interactive graphic screens and simulations. The machine also features G-code and may be used with all CAD/CAM systems.

The cast iron body features precision ballscrews and bearings, a CAT-40 spindle, and a two-speed headstock.
