U-series five-axis vertical machining centers from FFG’s Feeler brand are designed for both flexibility and productivity. The U-600 model features overlapped X, Y and Z axes and independent rotating/tilting axes, providing reduced curve machining tolerance along with wide clearance for machining operation. Developed for advanced five-axis applications, the U-800 is a gantry-type VMC featuring a one-piece U-shaped base and column that provides rigidity and accuracy for larger workpieces. A large-diameter, built-in, dual-drive rotary table provides high torque and high load capacity.

The U-600 offers XYZ travels measuring 460× 520 × 400 mm, with A-axis rotation ranging from +40 to -110 degrees and C-axis rotation of 360 degrees. Rapid traverse rates are 30 m/min. in X, Y and Z. A 10,000-rpm direct-drive spindle is standard, but optional 12,000-rpm and 15,000-rpm versions are available. The U-800 offers XYZ travels measuring 800 × 935 × 640 mm, with A-axis rotation ranging from +120 to -120 degrees and C-axis rotation of 360 degrees. Rapid traverse rates are 48 m/min. in X, Y and Z. A 12,000-rpm direct-drive spindle is standard, but an optional 18,000-rpm built-in version is available.
