When performing high-volume parts manufacturing and numerous forms of automation and parts transfer, manufacturers need equipment that can keep pace. The high-speed, high-production horizontal machining center with stacked axes design is ideal for these types of operations, especially when it comes to small automotive components and die-cast aluminum parts. The J3's high-speed spindle and superior axis acceleration/deceleration characteristics help reduce overall costs by providing faster machining. Non-cutting time is further reduced due to fast, automatic tool changes and quick table index times. The J3 HMC can decrease the number of machines needed and reduce machine tool costs to achieve a given production requirement.
