MAG IAS, LLC (Fond du Lac, WI,) has developed a range of larger and more versatile machine tools. The company is currently in production of a new family of vertical turning centers (VTCs) with table sizes from 5 to 8 meters and facing capacity up to 9 meters in diameter. These dual-column machines can handle workpiece loads up to 250,000 kg and feature fixed or adjustable rail styles. In addition, a new model of the large, ram-type horizontal boring machine (HBM) family is also under construction. The company also recently introduced a new-concept machining system for high-volume production of wind turbine hubs. MAG's new machines are incorporating unprecedented levels of flexibility with new multi-functional features and green design elements focused on the lowest total cost of ownership—including turning machines with grinding and gear hobbing capability, along with mill-turn and turn-mill machines, honing capability and Cryogenic machining. MAG designs also make extensive use of environmentally friendly features, including minimal hydraulics and oil systems, reduced need for chillers and ancillary equipment, as well as energy monitoring and conservation capabilities.
