Waldrich Coburg’s Taurus 25 and Taurus 30 bridge-type milling machines feature a robust cast iron structure and hydrostatic guideways that make for a stable platform for heavy roughing cuts, while still providing high-speed, chatter-free finishing for mold and die applications.

Both five-axis machines offer 85/63 hp, 6,000 rpm and high torque to power through tough materials. Optional motorized spindles are available for finishing speeds of 20,000 rpm supported by feed rates of 1,181 ipm. Table load is 88,000 lbs, supported by two base sizes: 79" × 158" or 98" × 197" inches. Other options and features are available.

The company also offers the hydrostatic high-rail MultiContour gantry machine, which features the same high-quality construction features as the Taurus series. This machine is equipped with a 63-hp, 6,000-rpm, two-speed spindle, as well as finishing spindles to 30,000 rpm. Feed rates of 1,181 ipm and acceleration rates of 3 m/sec.2 provide high flexibility.
