The vertical machining centres of the MCV series convince by highest performance and accuracy as well as special reliability and durability. The mechanical stability of the machines is characterized by the robust column construction with reinforced cross-ribbing. Thermal stability is guaranteed by the design of the headstock and its cooling circuit. The robust machines of the MCV series are thus equipped with everything required for rough machining of heavy workpieces as well as for finishing operations. The ball screws and linear guides meet the highest precision requirements and allow the machine to be highly dynamic with rapid traverse rates of 40 m/min. Manual scraping of the contact surfaces on the machine bed and column meet the highest quality requirements. Optionally, the machines can be expanded for 4- or 5-axis machining and equipped with an automatic pallet changer.
