Maier Swiss's MLK 125 Linear Automatic Series of Swiss-type turning centers are especially useful for the accurate, high-volume production of parts for electronic component manufacturing and a range of other small-part applications. The Linear Series machines feature 1,600 ipm rapids in all axes, reducing production lead times, part costs and cycle times, according to the company. They can accelerate to as much as 2 G. Spindles (main and opposed) are driven by built-in 3 hp (2.2 kW) integral motors that can reach a speed rate of 15,000 rpm.

The series allows removal of the guide bushing, which enables the machine to operate as a standard lathe, eliminating the need to centerless grind stock. Capable of machining as much as 1/2" barstock, the linear machines have a compact footprint of 60" × 32". The machines have a 4,600-lb solid polymer concrete base, which eliminates vibration and ensures an industry leading accuracy of 0.0001".

The centers accommodate as much as 19 tools, including four driven tools. With two independent slides that are moveable in X and Y directions, high productivity can be achieved by simultaneously offering three tools in the cut.
