The F500 Plus VMC uses a high-precision, high-torque Big Plus spindle in a construction that virtually eliminates thermal growth during heavy-duty cutting. Thirty-position, servo-powered tool magazines make for quick and reliable tool changes, the company says. High-speed axis travel on roller linear motion guideways reduces non-cutting time for better productivity.

The E160A compact turning center is also offered in a small footprint. The center’s 45-degree, one-piece casting bed structure and 6” chuck are designed to provide the rigidity and strength for high performance machining of small-diameter parts.
