Travel 24 x 14 x 18 in.
Taper, RPM 40, 8k
Tool Capacity 16 T
Spindle Motor 15 HP


This is a compact, simple, easy to use VMC. It has box ways that can withstand heavier cutting force than linear ways. It comes standard with many accessories that are usually optional in other machines.

  • Table: 27.6” x 13.8”
  • Hardened and ground box ways
  • Spindle: 8K RPM, CAT 40 Big Plus, Belt Driven, 15 HP Motor
  • ATC: Carousel 16 Tools
  • Positioning Accuracy X/Y/Z: (+/-0.00015”)
  • Machine size w/o Chip Conveyor: W/D/H (114” / 82” / 93”)
  • Machine height can be adjusted to fit most garage doors
  • All guide ways are induction hardened and then precision ground
  • Each axis is driven by a high precision double-nut ball screw that is centered between the guide ways.
  • The ball screws are pretensioned and anchored at both ends with angular contact bearings. Ball screws using single nuts or ones that are not pretensioned will have much greater play and backlash which can lead to problems with chatter and accuracy

Precision through Craftsmanship and Technology

Structural mating surfaces are precision hand scraped to increase the flatness and to improve geometric accuracy (straightness and squareness) of the whole assembly. This provides near perfect alignment assuring long term accuracy. 

Box way construction

The slide ways are hand scraped, hardened and ground. Box ways have superior vibration damping capacity than linear ways and can be used on severe machining applications. During a crash, they are less susceptible to damage due to large contact surface.

Fully protected spindle

The spindle is designed with air curtain and air blast at tool change to prevent small chips from entering the inside of the quill. Around the spindle, there are coolant nozzles for cutting operation and air nozzle for cutting dry.

FANUC Oi-MF control

The control panel comes with 10” color screen and software such as high speed AICC, 200 blocks look ahead, rigid tapping, manual guide Oi, and extra M codes The operating panel is equipped with detachable MPG (Manual Pulse Generator), USB port, and embedded Ethernet.
