The Versatile Machine That Works Two Ways

Toolroom Ops - when you need the VMC to work like a TRAK bed mill, but with chips and coolant contained
  • Optional Electronic Handwheels (x, y, and z)
  • Selectable 2 or 3 axis CNC
  • Full DRO for manual operations
Production Ops - when you need to run small to medium production quantities
  • 16-tool carousel tool changer along with manual tool change for additional tools
  • Convenient Tool Table fly out window
  • Fully enclosed ANSI compliant operation
