Available from Yamazen, the compact Brother M140X1 multitasking machine incorporates turning with high-speed milling and tapping so that workpieces that previously were processed using separate machines can now be machined on a single unit, reducing handling time.

A high-speed and high-output built-in, direct-drive motor offers maximum speed of 2,000 min.-1 for increased turning efficiency.

Also available from Yamazen is the Takisawa TS-4000YS horizontal turning center, which features a heavy-duty twin spindle, 12-station power turret with Y axis, a 30-hp main spindle motor and a 10-hp milling motor. Box guideways are said to guarantee rigidity.

  • How to Choose the Right CNC Router

    With moldmaking the focus is on injection molding or other mold types that use wire EDM or CNC machining centers to create the mold components. Your typical machining center weighs several tons and has a relatively small working envelope compared to a CNC router. The mill’s massive construction lends itself to machining rigid materials with very tight tolerances. While this type of CNC is suited for injection molding components, it isn’t always the ideal tool for the job when we broaden our scope of moldmaking and the current opportunities in the marketplace
