Rotary tools and turning tools can be mounted at any position of the 12-station drum turret, and quick-change toolholders can be loaded or unloaded with a turn of a wrench.

Production capabilities are greatly expanded with the Nexus-100MS. A workpiece can be transferred between the first and second headstock to complete machining operations. The workpiece can also be automatically oriented in phase for smooth, continuous operation. An optional bar feeder is also available.
