Horizontal Machining 4‑Axis


Horizontal Machining 4-Axis

High-speed, high production, single table horizontal machining center

Makino’s J-Series Horizontal Machining Centers are designed to be the core of high volume, flexible CNC based machining lines.  They feature the combination of a stacked axis design and single table configuration, while promoting highly efficient chip removal of transportation out of the machining area.  Featuring flexibility with respect to machine strokes and configurations, the J-Series HMC’s can be tailored during the pre-sales engineering phase of a program to precisely meet the needs of the program they are being integrated into, offering unmatched efficiencies related to floorspace and infrastructure requirements.
