The SCX-series of modular assembled Schutte multi-spindle automatics produce complex as well as simple workpieces economically. This multi-spindle machine can do everything that is possible with a three-axis machining center. The machine's principle feature is the ability to optimize the backworking process. Rear side machining has always been an obstacle with regards to fast cycle times. Complete backworking and cross machining operations are done in positions 8 and 9. This is done without unclamping the workpiece and with the same speed and flexibility as front side machining.

The machine is designed to use the same toolholders in all positions, front and rear. All tools can be driven and offer a coolant-through standard. All spindles are independently driven. The spindle drum is continuously indexing even in reverse mode, and the spindle speed is adjustable during indexing. All drives, cables and hoses are outside of the machining area.
