Efficient Bar Machining of Complex Parts

The bar capacity of the main spindle on the SPRINT 20|5 is Ø 20 mm / 0.8 in. The counter spindle can be optionally equipped for shaft unloading of workpieces measuring Ø 20 x 600 mm / 0.8 x 23.6 in. The main spindle is also equipped with a C-axis for the machining of complex operations. The counter spindle is equipped with a C-axis when combined with the optional driven tools for rear-sided machining. 
The SPRINT 20|5 from DMG MORI is ideal for the high volume production of simple to medium complexity parts machined from bar.

Mill, Drill, Grind Aerospace Parts on One Machine

The unique two-axis Programmable Coolant Nozzle (PCN) handles variations in wheel diameter and changes in cutting direction while maintaining ideal coolant flushing conditions. It also allows for intermittent NC-controlled, electrically powered rotary dressing that trues the wheel to reestablish profile geometry on the cutting wheel. 
The flexible G7 Grinder 5-axis horizontal machining center from Makino grinds, drills and mills aerospace blades, vanes, turbine disks and other complex components.
