FlexCNC’s (FlexArm) G-series vertical machining centers are designed for face milling, helical milling, rough milling and drilling of large or long parts in a single set-up. The standard edition model, 20-06 SE, features a 20' × 6' bed, to machine large parts. The long bed, coupled with a moveable safety light curtain, enables multiple set-ups simultaneously. The company’s machines are said to be especially useful for machining long products like tube, pipe and more.

The machine features a monoblock welded steel frame with high rigidity and a T-slot machine bed. A spindle taper with a torque capability of as much as 74 foot-pounds (with an 18-horsepower upgrade available). It has a travel rate of 1,200 inches per minute along the X-axis, 1,000 inches per minute along the Y-axis and 165 inches per minute along the Z-axis. The spindle nose to table distance ranges from 5.5" to 25".

The standard unit runs on 480 volts and includes a frame with chip conveyor and T-slotted table, flood coolant pump and tank, and automatic tool calibrator. Oversized double hung precision linear guideways are said to ensure smooth movement. A programmable servo motor drives the spindle, while a 10-compartment automatic tool change is said to ensure capacity for many applications.
