The DMU eVolution 5-axis machine produces undercuts of up to 18 degrees, fast chip-to-chip time and a large work area with a smaller space requirement. The linear drive mechanism of the X axis for the smallest positioning time, maximum precision and the larger pivoting area of the new NC swivel rotary table, as well as the automatic tool magazine with a double gripper, are all remarkable features. The machine needs a smaller footprint, allowing for a more spacious work area.

The DMU eVolution 5-axis machine produces undercuts of up to 18 degrees, fast chip-to-chip time and a large work area with a smaller space requirement. The linear drive mechanism of the X axis for the smallest positioning time, maximum precision and the larger pivoting area of the new NC swivel rotary table, as well as the automatic tool magazine with a double gripper, are all remarkable features. The machine needs a smaller footprint, allowing for a more spacious work area. Task-oriented spindles round off this variety of spindle options with 18,000 rpm in the standard version and up to 42,000 rpm in the option.

The swivel range of the B axis of 108 degrees allows negative machining angles of up to 18 degrees. The NC swivel rotary table enhances the spectrum of applications in tool manufacturing, as well as in the processing of complex parts for the air and spacecraft industry.

During the process, the machining center provides a dynamic response along all axes. This is ensured by he linear drive along the X axis that accelerates the machine at 1 G to a maximum of 3,140 ipm. The fast-rotating round axes (up to 50 rpm) of the NC swivel rotary table meet all the requirements of modern high speed machining.
