Porta Multicenter

A Different Kind of Machining Center
If one horizontal machining center is good, then three on a single platform should be better, right? That’s the thinking behind the Multicenter concept from Italian builder, Porta Solutions. It blends the volume production capabilities of rotary transfer technology with the flexibility of a machining center in a single platform.   

Rotary Transfer, Trunnion And Full CNC Machines
- Porta North America's rotary transfer, trunnion and the Flexcenter are highlighted in this product catalog- Photographs illustrate descriptions along with diagrams and screen captures- Machine accessories, automation, production and assembly are also explained.

Modular Flexible Machining Cell
This concept is based on the standardization of machining center modules of Porta design located around an indexing table with independent CNC satellite tables. This new design allows manufacturing of standard components and machine frames to reduce production times and costs. A standard table with four CNC satellite tables and three horizontal XYZ machining units with the 12-position toolchanger means that one operator can turn out an equal amount of production compared to four individual horizontal machining centers.
