Sharp Industries, Inc. of Torrance, California is introducing a series of Heavy Duty CNC Bed Mills with 2 spindles, that can do vertical and horizontal machining on the same machine. Besides the regular vertical spindle, the machine head also has a horizontal spindle at the front that allows all the milling and drilling jobs to be done on one set up . With such design, the operator no longer has to move the work piece from one machine to another, to clamp and re-clamp, or to realign the work piece. With one set up, the accuracy of the work piece can be maintained.
Equipped with the optional rotary table, the machine can do 5 sides machining in one set up, that greatly increase the efficiency and reduce spindle idling time.
