Maier CNC Swiss turning centers provide start-to-finish machining—simultaneous turning and milling/drilling—in one operation. Available from Methods Machine Tools, Inc., ML ProLine machines are available in five different series, with configurations ranging from four axes with as many as 11 tools to 11 axes with as many as 30 tools.

Designed to turn small, complex parts with high precision, the machines can also handle barstock with diameters as large as 32 mm in diameter. Machines feature 6,000-rpm or 8,000-rpm 5-/7.5-hp main spindles; 6,000-rpm or 8,000-rpm 3.5 hp subspindles and 1,260 ipm rapid traverses within a distance of 0.03937". Several models offer simultaneous processing with two or three tools and are capable of secondary processing (milling and drilling) by means of a 2-hp front drilling spindle. To facilitate complex machining combinations, three independent carriages are available for automatic placement.
