The ABX series of CNC turning centers feature two symmetrical sets of spindles, different locations of turrets and Y-axis slides, allowing for single setup machining and fast throughput of complicated workpieces. On the DHY2 and SY models, a total of 24 tool stations (accepting as many as 24 live tools and 48 ID tools) perform simultaneous turning or milling operations. The TH2 model has a total of 36 live tool stations.

The ABX series of CNC turning centers feature two symmetrical sets of spindles, different locations of turrets and Y-axis slides, allowing for single setup machining and fast throughput of complicated workpieces. On the DHY2 and SY models, a total of 24 tool stations (accepting as many as 24 live tools and 48 ID tools) perform simultaneous turning or milling operations. The TH2 model has a total of 36 live tool stations. This large tooling capacity allows for a variety of complex machining.

The 12-station turrets are identical in size and capacity and are symmetrically arranged. These turrets incorporate an AC servomotor and a 3-piece curvic coupling, while featuring non-lifting turret indexing. A large open space under the spindles minimizes swarf accumulation and maintains uptime. The ABX series is available in three models.
