The Bridgeport GX 510 is designed and built for a production environment. These machines can literally overlap one another to better utilize valuable floor space and to promote cell manufacturing. The unique design provides service and operator interface to only the front or back of the machines. This design allows the machines to be stacked in a line side by side since there is no need to access the sides of the machines.
Don’t let the small footprint fool you as the GX 510 packs a powerful punch. The spindle torque and horsepower is a unique feature of this machine when compared to other small footprint machines. With 20 horsepower and 99 ft-lbs of torque the GX 510 is able to provide a solution for the aerospace, medical, defense, 3C, automotive, and other industries, requiring high-value, complex parts from difficult to machine materials.
