Developed as a solid cast design with an overhead slide, the axes of the DMC 64 V linear lie at 25.2" in the X axis and 19.7 in the tool's Z axis. The linear drive mechanism in the X axis enables the upper side carriage at more than 0.5 g to accelerate to more than 2,755.9 ipm. This results in short positioning times, but also improves chip-to-chip times, which are now 30 percent faster compared to conventional drives, according to DMG. The linear drive is much faster than he conventional ballscrew. The machine is well suited for general machining, in shopfloor manufacturing as well as in the tool and die industry where more simple contour work in steel, aluminum and casting is needed.

This is made possible by the 18,000 rpm motor spindle that features synchronizing technology. The motor spindle needs far less space than the belt-driven spindle and can be quickly installed because of its cartridge design. A look beneath the stainless steel housing reveals other characteristics that make it stand out among its competitors. This is the automatic tool magazine that has a high capacity for 30 tools as well as its positioning outside the work area.
