The Customer selected the enlarged MAX HIGH version of the DYNAMIC machine which provides a machining envelope of 4000mm x 2200mm x 1095mm. This capacity is especially impressive given the relatively small footprint.

The machine is fitted with a Heidenhain iTNC530 and is as standard equipped with the Heidenhain HR520 Remote handwheel for simple work piece set up. This was further enhanced by the supply of workpiece and tool measuring probe

The machine has a 18kw, 2 Axis swivelling head with 24,000RPM and 20.9Nm of torque available.

For increased accuracy all axes were equipped with direct measurement (linear scales and high precision rotary encoders for the 2 rotating axes.)

The whole machine installation was enclosed by a bespoke sealed guarding system with extraction systems. This effectively prevents escape of dust and chippings into the workshop area.
