This 630mm horizontal machining center has new design features.

The a81nx increases part size abilities through advanced table and column castings. There’s also an extra 100mm of Y-axis stroke creating 12.5% more work envelope. Sturdy 3-roller designed B-axis table bearings provide stable cutting through the work area. Big parts often mean big features as well.  Experience the improvements in tool length, diameter and weight capacities in the a81nx. This will assist with big face mills, boring bars and line bar use.

Two new spindle systems increase productivity and cutting and non-cutting results.

The 8,000 RPM high torque spindle is an optional extra. This improves uninterrupted power levels by 19% over the previous model. With 50 HP of uninterrupted power, this high torque spindle is perfect for heavy roughing of iron castings and hard metal aerospace use.  The 8,000 RPM and 10,000 RPM spindles boost acceleration and deceleration which decreases rigid tapping times by up to 30%.
