Featured with the a61nx-5E at IMTS.
This automated machining cell is the perfect mix of speed and flexibility. The Makino a61nx-5E horizontal machining center (HMC) already speeds through aerospace parts as a stand-alone machine; but when paired with a Makino Machining Complex (MMC2) pallet-handling system, machine utilization can reach more than 90 percent. And by automating 5-axis processes, the a61nx-5E MMC2 squeezes every ounce of productivity available from such an investment. Together, this system lends the kind of flexibility that is ideal for high-mix, aerospace production environments. Easily switch between jobs without delays, thanks to the setup operations, tools and programs available in the MMC system.
